Jenny Friend Doll Ellie (Totoco Exclusive)

This girl was pretty cheap on Mandarake, because of her damaged box.  The doll is in perfect shape, I like it this way, so I don't feel guilty about removing her.  I love the purple eyes and yellow eyeshadow, which are very sweet and subtle in person.

She's a Totoco store exclusive, I think from around 1996-1997, because she uses an unmarked version of the 10th Anniversary Friend Doll box.  There's absolutely no marking on the box to give this edition a title, or even to name her "Ellie" on the box.

I'm so glad to finally have a nice Ellie, the best ones get snatched up quickly.  She's always been popular with adult collectors, and the current small Jenny playline hasn't included her for years.

Ellie was one of my favorites, too. Then I saw Lina, and Lina then became my favorite. Along with Kisara, Mitsuki, Naomi, and Shion. And one Tamaki.
