FLATSY!



Flatsy dolls were flat dolls made by Ideal from 1969 through 1973. The dolls were designed by Hank Kramer. The 'mini' flatsy (shown here, lower left) was only 2 1/2 inches high.  Perfect for taking in your pocket!

Flatsys had long hair, which went to the floor, usually in vivid colors (bright blue, bright yellow, pink, etc.). They were made of soft vinyl with wires inside the limbs and body which made them poseable. They wore 'mod' clothes reflecting the styles of the 60's and 70's.

  1. I don't remember Flatsy. I had Baby Alive,Tuesday Taylor and my beloved Tiffany Taylor. I also had Farrah Fawcett in the red Bob Mackie dressed to the nines!
