Bibi-Bo Doll by El Greco




I really don't know how they came up with the idea to name this doll bibi bo.  The sure thing is that the el greco factory came up with the idea to produce this doll inspired by Pedigree Sindy.  Let's face it!  The similarities among those two dolls are too many!  Same body structure and parts, made of the same materials that had been used to Sindy dolls.

Bibi-Bo was the Greek version of Sindy.  She had her own range of clothes, her house, lots of accessories and a boyfriend with an equally silly name : John John (!).
The production of this doll started probably in 1981-1982 and soon became extremely popular.  There were two kind of dolls.  Up to 1987 the bibi bo doll has pale white skin, blonde hair and pale make up.  In 1987 the doll became more tanned and with more extravagant make up.  Both dolls continue to be smash hits up to 1989 when a terrible fire destroyed the El Greco factory.  In 1991 Hasbro bought the El Greco company and as always made some unsuccessful changes, up to 1993.  This year the production of this doll sadly stops. 

This doll was very popular among the Greek girls and in all advertisements was called as "The sweetest in the world!" and indeed she was.  It was a pleasure to comb the rich blonde hair of this doll and her real -not painted- blue eyes were absolutely lovely!  I remember that it was my most favourite toy when I was a kid and that although it was expensive my dad had bought me 3 dolls.  It was impossible for me to get the house or some other accessories, but I stll have my dolls and some clothes and I wll present them here.  Please note that Bibi-Bo is extremely rare nowdays and you can only find some items among doll collectors.
