Kitty Corner Francie® Doll’s Having a Slumber Party!

By Chris Varaste

Kitty Corner Francie® Doll epitomizes a teenage girl’s devotion to fashion and fun as she prepares for a fab slumber party! When you’re hosting a sleepover, success lies in the details, including a change of clothes, pizza with everyone’s fave toppings, and a late-night double feature. Luckily, eternal hipster Francie will make sure her get-together will keep you entertained all night long.

She starts by taking a cue from Slippers, her adorable new tuxedo kitten, and gives her party a kitty-cat theme! The fun starts at eight o'clock sharp with dancing and karaoke. Francie is always an expert at tying her fashions to a party motif—her outfit coordinates with Slippers’ furry grey coat!

Dressed for the occasion, our hostess greets her guests wearing a sublime sleeveless shift in powder blue, offset by striking dark chocolate and white accents. She wears white lacy knee socks and dark brown flats, along with a perfect shade of frosted pink lipstick to play up her extra-long lashes.

Kitty Corner Francie® is the first Silkstone Francie to wear her hair in the classic “no-bangs” style. The last time she swept her platinum locks off her forehead was in 1971. Over time, that rare doll earned the moniker “No-Bangs Francie” and became a collectible prize! 

Now, she’s not only sporting the no-bangs hairstyle, but comes prepared with day and evening fashions! Francie wants to get comfy so she changes into a combination lemon yellow mini-gown and maxi-robe covered in white polka dots—perfect for curling up in front of the TV. White ribbon and slippers complete the nighttime ensemble, along with a notebook and blue kitty pillow for Slippers. Cupcakes, soda and a pile of DVDs mean Francie and pals can finally settle down for late-night treats!

Collectors and fans eagerly admit this year and last were two of Francie’s finest. Designer Robert Best delivered four fantastic dolls, including totally groovy Check Please!, dreamy Nighty Brights and glamorous Fuchsia ‘N Fur. Hard to pick, but if you had to, which is your absolute fave?
