Larger fashion dolls, the 1970s

Another Midwood Brands/Family Dollar product
are the Girl Superheroes.
Shouldn't it say, "Superheroines"?

Although there were a number of dolls slightly larger than Barbie in the 1960s, most notably Tammy and Sindy, it was in the 1970s that the 12-inch dolls and their action figure companions really became popular.  Here are some of the Mattel competitors of the 1970s.
