Tressy Doll

The Tressy doll was the same size as Barbie, but with the added bonus that her hair grew! You used to press her belly button and pull her hair out the top of her head, then to make it short again when you got bored of her longer locks, you wound it in with a magic key that you put in her back. Amazing - and she was cheaper than Barbie! I think it was made by Palitoy.

Do You Remember Tressy Doll?

    I loved Tressie, I had several of them, I loved her tall, lean outline without any of Sindy's curves or Barbie's huge rack. You had to be careful not to pull the hair too hard, but if you took care you could have lots of different looks and, as I remember, the clothes were nice too. She also had beautiful, slim legs, even if they were stiff, and lovely ankles and pointy feet. I don't ever remember seeing a Tressie with shoes on although she must have had some. I had a gorgeous platinum blonde, a redhead and a couple of normal blondes. Being a brunette myself I didn't want one of those. :D

    I was desperate for a Tressie as my mate had about 8 (Yes, 8!) Sindy dolls and I wanted to go one better! I loved my Tressie, winding her hair back in with the key in her back! Why don't they make it anymore? And what happened to mine? (Must have a serious word with my mum....)
