For More Information

There is an wonderful group that collects Stardust Classics and other Just Pretend dolls at JustPretendDolls at YahooGroups.

The Stardust Classics dolls are 18.5" dolls "sculpted" by Vernon Thornblad, the former Art Director at Kid Galaxy, using 3D animation on the computer. (More recently, Mr. Thornblad was responsible for designing the Carpatina Dolls using the same methods.) The Stardust Classics dolls all have a fantasy theme and are Laurel the Woodfairy, Alissa, Princess of Arcadia and Kat the Time Explorer. They all share the same face mold but look distinctive because of varied face paint , eye colors and hairstyles. Each doll has a series of four books and accompanying outfits, accessories and furniture. The dolls cost $79.95 and came dressed in elaborate and detailed dresses. The additional costumes available for the dolls were truly spectacular and well done. Some of the harder-to-find outfits, such as Katís Plum Traveling Suit, now command very high prices on the secondary market. The accessories were imaginative but often  fragile.

There is a staining problem with the Alissa dolls whose dark-colored dress often has bled onto the vinyl. There is a product called Remove-Zit by Twin Pines of Maine, Inc., that many have used with success to get rid of the stains.
