The Ashley Olsen celebrity doll portrays her as herself. The doll was made by Mattel in 1999 as part of a two box set with her twin Mary-Kate.
Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen have been actresses and film stars since they both played the character Michelle Tanner on the television sitcom Full House from 1987 to 1995 on ABC as infants. Since then they have made films, books, and television shows under their franchise.
The 1999 version was made when they were 13. Addition versions were released through 2005 to correspond with their movies like New York Minute and When in Rome. Many outfits and playsets were also sold separately. The Olsen dolls were designed for play and the knees bend, waist twists and bends, shoulder sockets move 360 degrees but arms don’t bend, and the head tilts and turns.
The Ashley doll came wearing a gray flowered skirt, pink top, gray fuzzy short sweater, and pink platform shoes carrying a gray shoulder bad. Include are two additional pink outfits of a pink ballet dress and pink shorty pajamas. Accessories included pink ballet slippers, a pink carrying case, boombox, cell phone, and pink sunglasses.
