I had to break one of my guidelines to acquire this doll. There were several reasons that I initially passed on the purchase of Hold That Tiger from my regular dealer. I told myself that I already had a couple other black Poppy Parker versions. I definitely did not like the ensemble (I was a pre-teen in the 70's, so I can remember these fabrics and how it felt on your skin to wear them). Then I was afraid the production facility would mess up the hair. Apparently, it's very easy to mess up short hairstyles.
When IRL photos started showing up, I began kicking myself. I knew this doll was going to be added to my collection, and I knew I was going to have to pay secondary market prices for her. The search began. I started scouring ads and auctions. I wanted one with great eyes and hair, but at a reasonable price. I finally tracked one down.
Here is Hold That Tiger Poppy Parker in her box.
How does she look out of the box?
