An incredibly creepy doll that was launched back in the 1960s - before being discontinued shortly after - is now selling for hundreds of pounds online.
Little Miss No Name was launched by Hasbro in 1965, a time when toy companies seemingly thought nothing about traumatising youngsters.
According to toytales.ca, Little Miss No Name was created to be an alternative to Barbie, which is a bit of a f**king understatement when you see the state of the thing.
Designed by Deet D'Andrade, the doll featured large (incredibly haunting) brown eyes, a sad downturned mouth and a mop of blonde hair.
And if she wasn’t already forlorn enough for you, she also came with a plastic teardrop that could be inserted into a hole in her cheek. Oh and when you extended her arm, her little hand was cupped as though she was begging for money.
To really hammer home that Little Miss No Name was the polar opposite of Barbie, marketing for the doll included a lengthy list of what she didn’t have. How lovely.
It read: “She doesn’t have a pretty dress. She doesn’t have any shoes. She doesn’t even have a home. All she has is love.”
The doll’s packaging also had a message on it, which read: “I need someone to love me. “I want to learn to play. Please take me home with you
and brush my tear away.” Who thought this was a good idea for kids?
Anyway, perhaps unsurprisingly, the toy manufacturer gave up on the doll after a couple of years.
But the short production run of Little Miss No Name, means that she is now a bit of a collector's item, going for hundreds on resale sites such as eBay. Bet you all the kids who chucked them away as soon as their parents’ backs were turned are kicking themselves now, eh?
Little Miss No Name can fetch a particularly high price if she’s in mint condition, or at the very least has her removable tear still with her because - as you can imagine - lots of these have gone missing since the 1960s.
One advert currently on eBay is offering an ‘intact’ Little Miss No Name, but does note that it appears her hair has been trimmed. Hasn’t she been through enough without DIY haircuts?
The listing reads: “Very good condition with tear intact. Hair appears to be trimmed somewhat. Original outfit is present as shown with some typical fraying to edges. Some light wear from play. But quite nice overall. Measures approx. 15 inches tall. Listed as found.”
You can buy her for £337.07, if you’re interested. Good luck.Featured Image Credit: eBay/Hasbro
