I cut her hair. My cousins cut my Crissy Doll's hair! We laugh about it now, but back then.

I owned the original Crissy Doll (Red head top center), and Mia (blue outfit) and Velvet (to the right of Mia). They were the first "growing hair" doll introduced in 1969 by Ideal Toys.

Velvet and Chrissie Doll with growing hair! You pushed on her belly button and pull out the hair, to make it long, then, you could make it short again by twisting a knob on her back.  I loved playing with these dolls at my cousin's house-I had Chrissy, she had Velvet and I was always a twinge jealous cuz I liked hers better...(no idea why)

Velvet and Chrissie Doll with growing hair! You pushed on her belly button and pull out the hair, to make it long, then, you could make it short again by twisting a knob on her back. I had Chrissy (since I had red hair) and my sister had Velvet!

Velvet, growing hair doll, I still have her - wanted her over Chrissy because of her purple eyes and dress.

She has "growing" hair. You pushed her belly button to make her hair grow and then turned a knob on her back to make it short again. Maybe this is why I became a hair stylist!

Crissy Ad. Got one for Christmas...played with her until her hair fell out. My sister recently purchased one that had been restored and she is a beautiful as when I remembered.

I had the Crissy doll. Her hair would "grow" longer and retract to be shorter. One of my favorite dolls!

I had this doll i loved it her hair would grow and it had a knob on her back you whined it back up.
