A long time ago, Barbie had a sister named Skipper, and Skipper had a friend named Fluff. With a name like Fluff, I thought she was an aftermarket, third party friend, but I looked it up. Fluff came packaged as “Living Fluff,” complete with a skateboard. For some reason, every time she shows up for sale on eBay, she’s always accompanied by pictures of herself naked. It’s odd and disturbing. Almost as disturbing as that weird ollie band sled the other Fluff is strapped into. Please, oh please click through, or you will miss “Action skateboard and real posin’ stand included.”
So I’d seen a few Fluff auctions on eBay, (Don’t ask…) they aren’t usually very expensive, but I never bit because I thought it was just Barbie’s stray skateboards paired with a dime store Barbie knock off. But hey, she’s legit! One guy has a mint condition Living Fluff that he wants $200 for!
Dramatic New! Well, OK. If you say so.
Fluff with the skateboard dates back to 1972 or so, although one source named as a 1969. In the package her skateboard looks a little bit like a waterski. I think these are the same skateboards that Barbie had. She had one you know. I know this becasue I bought one. Oops. Did I type that out loud?
Fluff is Skipper’s playmate! They wear the same fashions! Pose her head to toe every way! Her head tilts ‘n turns! Her arms swing around! Her Elbows bend! Her Knees bend! Her legs swing up ‘n out! (No, it really says that.) OK, so enough foreplay with the Fluff girl. Here’s the money shot, and the aforementioned action skateboard and real posin’ stand.
You know, if I won the lottery, one of the things I’d be blowing money on would be $200, 30 year old dolls with skateboards. And just because this picture made me laugh. I didn’t crop it or anything, it was featured as-is in the auction.
