Hasbro sold and distributed the Dolly Darlings dolls in the USA during the mid-1960s, they had a licensing agreement with the Palitoy Company in England, to manufacture and distribute these same dolls. 


While some dolls are found to be the exact same doll as sold in the USA, collectors have found a hand full that are exclusive to the UK market.  We have found no books or documentation for this, but see for yourself in the following photos - all gleamed from auctions or sent to us by the owners.
