1. Suzanne Somers as Chrissy Snow
Three’s Company was a huge hit and Suzanne Somers was arguably the show’s biggest breakout star. But it seems like a strange choice to base a doll on a character from a TV series that was clearly not intended for children.
2. Dolly Parton
It’s nice to see that Dolly’s doll also shared her famous curves.
3. Donnie and Marie Osmond
Mattel really managed to capture their creepy smile perfectly.
4. John Travolta
Plus, this Johnny doll will totally share clothes with Ken and Donny Osmond dolls (it says so on the box).
5. Farrah Fawcett
The only doll your brother would want to play with too.
6. Diana Ross
Diana in the 1970s was fabulous and her doll was no exception.
7. Susan Dey as Laurie Partridge
Susan Dey on The Partridge Family was gorgeous, but somehow the doll makers managed to make her look like a freaky alien.
8. Captain & Tennille
The husband-and-wife duo actually hosted their own television variety series on ABC from 1976–77. Although today they are best remembered for their No. 1 hit single, “Love Will Keep Us Together.”
Cher gave Barbie a run for her money, becoming the No. 1 selling doll of 1976. I guess kids were able to look past the doll’s creepy face.
