Throwback Thursday - Sunshine Family Dolls

Mattel's Sunshine Family Dolls were a popular fashion doll line in the 1970's. They were considered a bit of a hippy family and some even called them anti-Barbie because they were so wholesome and plain compared to her. 

 The Sunshine family cooked from scratch, made pottery and art and probably sang around a campfire. 

The Baby was called Sweets, Mom Steffie, dad Steve, and Grandpa & Grandma Sunshine.

The first video below from the Denver Miniature museum is a great visual explainer and shows the playsets. 

I had the craft store when I was a kid. My mom made me tiny candles and fabric bolts for it.

This commercial is from 1974

This is a cute video of one of the Sunshine craft booklets.
