I had a Girl's World. My mum had to get rid of it because it gave me nightmares...I was a very sensitive child!

This has brought a dim memory back of a doll called Tressy, with hair that spooled out, and then retracted when you pressed her stomach. So disturbing.

I had a 'girl's world' too! I'd long since consigned that memory to purgatory, thanks for bringing it back!!

Strangely, I've never heard anyone say that they liked their Girl's World head, or similar thing. But they must have sold well.
