    • Thanks for taking the time to comment even if it is just a link to the most recent article on your website about doll collecting. tommydoll is a fantastic site and I look forward to reading more from an insider on doll manufacturing.

      Agreed, the Rosie doll was limited to what she came with and the red suit brown vest outfit isn’t very inspiring. Even though it was released when Rosie O’Donnell was at her talk show peak, it was in the bargain doll bins for years afterward for $3-4. The Rosie O’Donnell plush doll however was extremely popular and sold out as fast as they could produce them. O’Donnell came out shortly after the doll was released as well so that may have hampered sales.

      Barbie’s Friend is a very playable, well made doll and a pleasure to have in the museum collection.

  2. Rosie O Donnell is Mattel’s first Lesbian celebrity doll produced and released in 1999 and I am proud to say that I own her in my collection today as well.

  3. I personally love this doll I have 10 of them now and have made the ones that I’m not keeping original custom outfits I think her body is very unique and beautiful a great alternative to Barbie I don’t know why they didn’t use the body on more dolls is way better then the new curvy Barbie although I do wish the dolls arms went out but literally that is all I would change even if you don’t like Rosie I suggest that you get one to try out she is quite cute you can always repaint her if you don’t like her original face .
