Here is the lovely Vita Tosca Diva. She is a ball-jointed doll and likes to pose. I did find her very hard to dress. The little tights were tight (elastic at the waist would have helped). The sleeves of the long coat were also difficult. I'm not too impressed with her hair, it seems thin. She is very light in weight. All of the joints work very well and hold a pose. Her hip joints did make a noise when moved. She is not nearly as nice as the Goodreau doll, not quite as expensive either.

This is a 20" Revlon doll wearing a tagged original Cherries a la Mode dress with an original slip. The dress is navy with red cherries. The shoes are reproductions of original shoes worn with this dress. The slip is red. Her hair is auburn (red). Her bangs look a little short and may have been cut.

This is an example of a Revlon doll with painted arms. There are rubs on the arms where the original pinkish vinyl shows through. Not all Revlons were painted (thank goodness!). This Revlon is 18" tall and is wearing an original dress (see pg. 53 of Kathy Barna's book, Revlon Dolls and Their Look-Alikes).

This is an 18" Revlon doll wearing the navy blue nylon version of Kissing Pink. Kissing Pink came in a variety of materials and colors. The name "Kissing Pink" comes from the line of Revlon cosmetics with that name. This doll has a new black replacement slip on beneath the dress. Her shoes are vintage, but not original. Don't you just love her hair!!
This is an 18" Revlon Walker. Please note the little round circle just below her waist on each side. That's the walking mechanism. These dolls are very hard to find. This one still walks when you hold her little hand. Check to make sure that any Revlon being sold as a walker has both these little circles.
