@pottermouth:  Thank you again for your gift and I'm glad you enjoyed the post!  Maybe that damaged Barbie will acquire some cybernetic upgrades someday, only time will tell . . .

@shortmom:  Mattel typically uses a more petite body and younger-looking head sculpts for their Skipper dolls, but, it is possible that the freckled doll could be a Skipper of some sort, and, yes, there were some Skipper garments in the bag of clothing.   There's a recent (2015) Barbie Fashionistas doll that has a similar appearance (blonde hair and freckles), but I don't know that she's an actual character with a name though.  I don't have said doll, but here's a close-up of her face that I just pilfered from eBay:



EDIT:  Pottermouth just PM'd me and wondered if she might me Tickle Me Elmo Barbie, and that looks like the correct identification.  The hair length/style is right, and, looking at a nude photo of the doll on eBay, so do the joints in the elbows.  The sunglasses Pottermouth included also match up.
