As a child I loved, loved. loved the Girl's World Styling Head by Palitoy that so many of my friend's had in the 1980's, sadly I didn't have one of my own, but as I used to go and play at friend's houses, I got a chance to try them out...I wanted one for years, so when I finally found one recently in a Charity Shop, I just had to have her...pictures of her to follow soon...
And just now I've discovered another type, from a similar time period, it's just unfortunate the seller is in the U.S (High Shipping cost to U.K - $46.70, which Ebay say is Approx: £29.11!) or I'd buy her, as the toy itself is reasonably priced at: $12.22 (Buy It Now) - Approx: £7.62!!
I have no idea why the seller refers to her as having a "swivel bust" though as she has no bust at all, only neck and shoulders, so I guess that should have been "Swivel head" then instead!
Oh well, I guess I'll just have to "blog her" instead and keep my eyes peeled for a U.K based one to buy!

( 29th December 2012 - Update, A very kind reader called April, has put me straight by letting me know those eyebrows are in fact painted on - An excellent bit of painting, I must say, as they really do look like hair in these pic's - Thanks so much April, for the heads up!)
She could definitely use some conditioner!
I'm sure those eyebrows definitely are hair of some sort!
