How did I ever shuffle through life without knowing they existed?!
The IHABHD dolls may seem like they were created from the womb of the 1980s, but they were actually produced by doll company Mel Appel in 1994. They were a small line of dolls, sold at Walmart and places like that, whose hair looked like wild pube bushes after getting electrocuted. So basically their hair looked like a pussy bush whose owner had a vibrator-gone-wrong-incident.
The gimmick was simple. The dolls were the size of an Olsen’s clit and had hair like your mom the time she tried to give herself an Ogilvie home perm. They came with a hat that made their hair frizzier (I think) and a comb and brush if you felt like taming the beast.
“It’s so easy and so much fun. Stuff all my hair into the fashion hat and shake my hair out. For hair styling use the comb and brush.”
Their tagline was: But tomorrow will be better! So they were truly giving the children a positive attitude even though, let’s be real, tomorrow wasn’t better and they still looked like the drunk, frazzled auntie of a troll doll. Although, now that I read that description, that sounds pretty damn glamorous.
