Vintage Fisher Price My Friend #217 Jenny Doll NEW in BOX
Here for your consideration, is a RARE, VINTAGE FISHER PRICE #217 MY FRIEND JENNY NEW IN 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 (1982-83), this SECOND EDITION Jenny doll is coveted by collectors.
This Jenny has never been played with or removed from her box other than to take photos. Jenny still exhibits the plastic wrapper around her head and the plastic tie around her neck is still in place. In addition, the plastic tie anchoring her hat on her head is still intact. Her brunette hair is styled in a below shoulder length, full bodied cut. 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 welcoming and mesmerizing. Jenny comes with her original care instruction booklet on the care and maintenance of these My Friend dolls. Jenny can be washed in the clothes washer and tumble dried in the dryer. In addition, her hair can be shampooed and styled in a variety of ways.
I've tried to include a variety of photos to illustrate how remarkable Jenny really is. I did not attempt to remove her clothing for fear of damaging the plastic encircling her head. All of her original clothes are included. Jenny's outfit consists of a yellow and white checked dress with a white bib and sleeves, a yellow bow at her neck, shiny white shoes, and a wide brimmed straw hat trimmed with a yellow ribbon. Her cloth body displays yellow flowers and appears bright and undamaged. Her clothes are easy to remove or put in place thanks to their velcro closures. Jenny and her clothing are odor free. I cannot spy any "imperfections" in either her appearance or that of her clothes.
Jenny's box shows minimal wear. All flaps are intact as is the original cellophane cover. There a few, minor rubs on the box, some edge wear along the seams, some original tape to seal the package, and the remnants of an original price sticker. I would categorize this box as being an 9.0 on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being perfect.
Jenny weighs approximately 2 lbs. UNWRAPPED and my location is Lafayette, IN (47905).
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.
Due to the weight of this item, I'll probably be sending Jenny via Priority Mail.
Care Instructions for My Friend Dolls
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.
