I don't know if these came out in the 70s, but I had two different Baby Beans dolls and a Holly Hobby. The Baby Beans dolls had vinyl faces and cloth bodies stuffed with "beans" (little plastic beads like in beany babies). They came dressed in a sewn on sleeper in pink, yellow, or blue and had a matching hat. Underneath the hat was a very little bit of blonde hair. They still sell them (or did a few years ago when I bought my daughter one). Holly Hobby was a rag doll dressed in a bonnet and old fashioned dress with light brown yarn braids. I think there were Holly Hobby books and I'm pretty sure she had a friend doll. I don't think they make Holly Hobby anymore, but I've seen them at garage sales and people usually want too much for them. These were my two favorite dolls until I got a Baby Alive.

I had a Bean doll names "Betsy Bean" and she had a pink sleeper. I cannot find out anything about this doll. She was my favorite and my devilish brothers tossed her into the burn barrel one day and my childhood as I knew it was over. :( Can anyone offer any info??

I used to have a denim purse that came with Holly Hobby tucked into the pocket. I got rid of it many years ago, but found the doll at a garage sale 20 years ago...and bought her!
