From the thumbnail, I thought this was a Blythe doll, but wowza.  I had one of these that was handed down to me as a kid...she was a very patriotic one, probably a July doll since my step-mom's bday was in July.

I was actually looking at these on eBay not too long ago, and pulled up my search history to find the name for everyone.  The company who made them was called Bradley, and if you search on eBay in the dolls category for Bradley, you can find a bunch at nice prices.

Having an open mind isn't a bad thing. Just don't open it so wide that your brain falls out.

thanks again, guys! and thanks and you're welcome lani! and

Wow.  Is she a soft-bodied doll?

no. these dolls are generally wire armature, stuffed/poseable arms, and molded styrofoam legs/torso/head covered in something very like pantyhose on the body and silk or nylon on the head. that's why they're kinda hard to find now, cause if they haven't been in a temp-controlled environment and handled rather carefully over the years, the styro tends to crumble and the doll turns into a bag of lumps.... i know i saw some new ones (tho not quite as cute in the styling of the face) at a fair several years ago; so i guess someone is still making them somewhere, but i'd have no idea of how to get hold of them....

These dolls are called Bradley dolls.  You can find them pretty easily on ebay.  My grandma had tons of these that she never let us play with.  Wish I knew what happened to them now.

Given a cape, tiara and a strong cup of coffee, yeah, I could rule the world.
