Larger fashion dolls, the 1960s

The Glimma Girlz by Funville/Dolgencorp
are the nicest line of dolls now being sold by Dollar General.
Although not mentioned as such,
I'm assuming that Dolgencorp's Sweet Princess is Glimma's sister.

I'm dividing the second half of the competitors series by decade, not by Barbie.  Although many people call these dolls "clones" most of them bear little or no resemblance to Ms. Roberts.  Unless otherwise noted, these dolls are 11 1/2 to 12 1/2 inches tall, older teen girls or young women who are someone stockier than Barbie with smaller breasts.
