Vintage Fisher Price My Friend #216 Mandy Doll New in Sealed Box! Rare Fisher Price #216 My Friend Mandy cheerleader doll. This was the fourth and last edition of the Mandy dolls. (More photos below) Here for your consideration, is a RARE, VINTAGE FISHER PRICE #216 My Friend Mandy New in Sealed Box! In the late 1970's to early 80's, Fisher Price introduced a series of soft bodied dolls with vinyl limbs, lush, brushable hair, vinyl faces, and easily removable clothes and accessories. The series, called My Friend dolls, featured 5 doll characters: Mandy, Jenny, Becky, Nicky, and Mikey. Manufactured for only one year (1984), this Mandy doll is highly coveted by collectors. This Mandy has never been removed from her original box. The original tape sealing the box is intact and Mandy still exhibits the plastic wrapper around her head. I can't tell for sure because of the collar of her cheerleader outfit but it appears the plastic tie around her neck is still in place. Her platinum blonde hair is styled in a below shoulder length, full bodied cut. She sports a blue headband to keep her hair out of her eyes while cheering. Through clever engineering, Jenny can be posed either in a standing or sitting position. Her soft body invites plenty of cuddling and her facial features are entrancing. I tried my best to capture her coloration through the cellophane. Her blue eyes are "to die for" and over all coloration looks beautiful. I cannot tell by peering through the cellophane whether or not Mandy comes with her original care instruction booklet. It may be behind the cardboard partition on which she is attached. Just to make sure, I'm going to enclose a copy of the original booklet that describes the care and maintenance of these My Friend dolls. Mandy can be washed in the clothes washer and tumble dried on low in the dryer. Personally, I'd probably let her air dry just to make sure she isn't harmed by the heat of the dryer. I'd also recommend that you put one nylon knee high (e.g. hose) over her hair to keep it somewhat in place in the washer. I'd also wash her inside of a pillow case. Her hair can be shampooed and styled in a variety of ways. I'd recommend using baby shampoo with just a small amount of styling gel. I've tried to include a variety of photos to illustrate how remarkable Mandy really is. I did not attempt to open the box because that would automatically change her classification of new in box to used. Mandy's outfit consists of a blue and white striped knit sweater with a monogrammed yellow "Mandy" megaphone on the front of her sweater, a blue and white pleated skirt, white socks trimmed in blue to match her outfit, and blue and white sneakers. She carries two fluffy blue and white pom-poms. Since I haven't removed her from her box, I'm not sure if her cloth body displays yellow or pink roses. From what I can see, her "underpants" are a peach color. Whether that same color extends up over her entire body, I have no idea. Similarly, I have no idea if her clothes are fastened with plastic snaps or velcro closures. Since I haven't opened the box, I cannot be 100% sure whether or not the doll or box exhibits any musty smells. If there are any such smells, these can easily be rectified by one of several ways: a. Putting the doll and box out in the sunshine for several hours to air them out; b. Lightly spraying some Febreeze on Mandy's cloth body and clothes and on the interior of the box; or c. Inserting a laundry dryer sheet inside her box for a few days. Mandy's box shows minimal wear. All flaps are intact as is the original cellophane cover. There is minimal shelf wear along with the original tape to seal the package. I would categorize this box as being an 9.5 on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being perfect. Mandy weighs approximately 2 lbs. UNWRAPPED and my location is Lafayette, IN (47905). To protect Mandy en route, I will be swaddling her in bubble wrap and shipping her inside another protective box. She will be fully insured. To ensure her safety, I will either be sending her via Fed Ex Home Delivery or Priority Mail. Unfortunately, our sorting center for Parcel Post is notorious for "manhandling" packages. I've personally had this happen to some packages that have been mailed to me. I don't want to take any chances with this extraordinary doll. For domestic (mainland deliveries), I'm finding that Fed Ex Home Delivery is running about 33% cheaper than the USPS (including Parcel Post) and UPS Ground. This is especially true for packages weighing in excess of 5 lbs., traveling longer distances, or being shipped in oversized boxes (for the USPS, any dimension over 12" is considered oversized). To ship Fed Ex Home Delivery, I MUST have a residential address, NOT a P.O. Box, and a home, work, or cell phone number. Besides offering free tracking assistance, the Fed Ex quote includes up to 100 worth of FREE insurance. Insurance amounts in excess of 100 may be secured at a nominal fee.

PayPal is the preferred manner of payment. All payments are due within 5 business days of the listing's conclusion. I also accept bank-issued Cashier's Checks and Postal Money Orders. Due to my bank's policies, I am unable to ship your item until these forms of payment clear my bank (usually within 3 business days). Please contact me if you would like to pay via a Cashier's Check or a Postal Money Order. The price listed is for the item itself. The total amount due will be the purchase price of the item the ACTUAL shipping cost to deliver your item to you. All shipping costs or extra fees (in the case of Canadian shipments) are the responsibility of the buyer. I will do everything in my power to find you the cheapest shipping rate—-whether it’s the USPS (First Class, Parcel, or Priority), Fed Ex, or UPS. I DO NOT PAD MY SHIPPING COSTS—-NEVER HAVE AND NEVER WILL! I SHIP WITHIN 48 HOURS OF A CLEARED PAYMENT. I primarily utilize Fed Ex Home Delivery for items exceeding 5 lbs. in weight, measuring greater than 12 inches in any dimension, or traveling longer distances. I’ve been finding Fed Ex has been running @33% cheaper than the USPS (including Parcel Post) and UPS Ground. FYI, another benefit of using either Fed Ex or UPS is that their quote includes up to 100 worth of FREE insurance. Additional amounts of insurance may be purchased for a nominal fee (that is much less than the USPS). Fed Ex also provides automated tracking updates re: your parcel’s whereabouts directly to your personal e-mail account. In order to ship Fed Ex (or UPS for that matter), I MUST have a residential or work place address, NOT a P.O. Box number, as well as a home or cell phone. Otherwise, they will not accept the shipping paperwork or transport your item. Since Bonanza's shipping calculator does NOT offer Fed Ex Home Delivery as a shipping option, PLEASE DO NOT SEND PAYMENT UNTIL I HAVE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO MANUALLY CHECK THESE RATES AND INSERT THEM INTO YOUR INVOICE. Otherwise, the shipping calculator may overcharge you. Packages traveling to Alaska or Hawaii will be shipped Parcel Post via the USPS. Insurance and delivery confirmation are required. I’m more than willing to combine multiple purchases into one box whenever it is safe to do so to decrease your shipping costs. Once again, PLEASE wait to check out until I can combine your purchases on ONE INVOICE and can calculate their combined shipping rate via Fed Ex. If you pay for these items separately, I get charged multiple transaction fees by PayPal plus you get over-charged on your shipping. Of course, I will refund you any amount over 1.00 that you've overpaid on shipping. However, it's easier on both of us if you wait until I can send you the correct amount. I’m more than happy to ship selected play sets to Canada. Remember that shipping to Canada can be quite expensive so please contact me for a shipping quote before you purchase an item. I will attempt to find the cheapest shipping rate possible. Canadian customers will be responsible for any brokerage fees, Custom’s duties, or VAT’s imposed by your government. I am not responsible for these charges. Insurance is required for all international shipments. Last, but not least, I offer a 10% discount for orders totaling 125.00 or more. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO RETURNS ARE ACCEPTED. I have attempted to bring any noted "imperfections" to your attention prior to your purchasing the item. However, I'm only human. If I have missed something or you have a problem with your purchase, please contact me prior to leaving feedback. Customer satisfaction is #1 for me. I try to provide outstanding service, high quality merchandise, and secure and expedient shipping. Feedback is important and I will be happy to leave you feedback once I know everything has arrived safely and that you are pleased with your purchase. Leaving me feedback helps me gauge how well I'm doing and also serves the Bonanza community by directing them to sellers who proffer outstanding merchandise and service. txzj pxzj2038 txzj71
