In 1971, Kenner introduced us to Madcap Molly, the Do-It-All Dolly.
Merriam Webster dictionary defines “madcap” as, marked by capriciousness, recklessness, or foolishness. The key word here is “or” because Madcap Molly is neither reckless nor foolish. She’ll graciously accept the label, “capricious”, thank you vey much. “Impulsive”, “unpredictable”, “changeable” or “volatile” – this girl knows who she is and where she’s going. Molly is a girl on a mission.
Whether it’s going shopping, riding her scooter, taking to the ski slopes or just walkin’ the walk, you’ll love being with Madcap Molly. Just wind her up with her humongous key and watch her go! No batteries are required, this dolly does it on her own – But what would you expect from Madcap Molly, the do-it-all dolly?
Madcap Molly stands a tall 12”. She’s constructed of durable hard plastic, looking normal from the side view, but with a head that’s flat as a board from the front. Her torso is more normal, but don’t talk to Molly about looks – just lead her, follow her, go along with her, or get out of her way! You’ll love Molly just the way she is and she’ll love you. Madcap Molly is the perfect alternative to the do-nothing, sit-and-look-at-it doll, and a great companion for every girl on the go.
Molly comes complete with everything she needs for several activities. There’s the mod, three-color shopping basket, perfectly at home in the supermarket or on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Lime green and pink set off the bright yellow wheels for a far out 1970s look.
The boss yellow and green scooter meshes perfectly with Molly’s groovy pink sundress for a neat combination of comfort and function on the go. And what else but pink skis and purple ski poles to top off the look. Change hats from the pink daisy floppy to the multi-colored striped ski hat and Madcap Molly is ready for the slopes!
Kenner’s Madcap Molly, the Do-It-All Dolly. Just wind her up. She shops, she skis, she scooters, she walks! Alright, Molly!
