Boxes 1990s

I think the Cool Tops Skipper on the box is a prototype.
Skipper had a Vespa in 1990,
long before they became popular again.
I wish the actual pool was more sturdy,
the way it is shown on the box.
Unfortunately, neither the catamaran nor the jet ski stay afloat.
Oh, how I love the pool house!  Note the lake in the background.
Why does Mattel make horses with such ridiculously long manes?
The back of the My Sister Stacie Gift Set box.
It was a clever idea to make and sell an outfit and furniture together.
The back of the New Baby Sister Kelly box
I wish I knew what the audience was watching!  I think the audience consists of Midge, Ken, Skipper and Teresa.
If you put the Pizza Party dolls and playset together,
you end up with DOZENS of accessories!
The living room furniture is beautiful but it's too short!
