Barefoot in the Park: The Bratter Lovers
The Bratter Lovers
Limited Edition of 800 sets
Original price: $180.
Ship date: Late Sept. 2013
Two sets of dolls based on the 1967 movie "Barefoot in the Park" were offered for pre-order in July 2013. The first was a Poppy Parker doll set with three fashions; the second a Poppy and Chip set. The movie was based on a Neil Simon play, and starred Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. "The Bratter Lovers" gift set used the Poppy and Chip sculpts as the characters Corie and Paul Bratter.
Poppy had a forward-facing eye screening with no bottom lashes, but with applied upper lashes. Her eyes were blue, and she had neutral-toned eyeshadow and lips. Her hair was copper and pulled back from her face, with long, wispy bangs. Eyebrows matched the hair.
Chip had forward-facing blue eyes, with golden blond hair and brown eyebrows. He came in a suit that sported a light blue shirt, navy blue tie and a dark gray jacket and pants. Over this he wore a charcoal gray single-breasted coat with a light gray scarf. He had black shoes, a watch and wedding ring.
Both dolls used the "Caucasian" skintone (re-branded in 2013 as "FR White").
