The straight leg doll came in a red two-piece swimsuit, and the bendable version came in jean shorts and a polka-dot red and white top. She has brown eyes, and either blonde, brunette, or titian hair colors.
She is marked:©1963/Mattel, Inc. Straight leg Skooter was packaged with red hair ribbons, red & white two-piece swim-suit, red flat shoes, gold wire stand, white comb & brush, and booklet.
