Midge
In 1965, the molded head Midge doll was made. She had three wigs, my favorite, the pigtail wig. #1009 Molded Head Midge came only with a head (no body) and 3 wigs (Titian Pigtail, Blonde Swirl 'n Curl, and Brunette Topknot Pouf) along with a wig stand. She wore an orange headband. This set was not shown in the bookets, only in the Mattel catalogue.
