Herself the Elf Doll American Greetings / Mattel 1984 & Simplicity pattern 6314 uncut
Herself the Elf doll, original clothing, created by American Greetings / Mattel in 1984 similar to Strawberry Shortcake.
Herself stands 5 ½” tall with a hard vinyl jointed body and soft vinyl head with short curly rooted blond hair and painted features. She wears a velvety turquoise and white dress with a tiny yellow bell attached to one side. On her feet she wears turquoise vinyl elf shoes with turned up toes.

"Herself the Elf is the elf in charge. When it comes to work, there's no job too large. She keeps nature running as smooth as can be; helps raise a fawn to a deer, a sapling to a tree. She's charming and fair and funny too. With her magical powers, there's nothing she can't do. Her wand has a bell with a beautiful ring. She got it from her father, the old elf king."
The idea behind the dolls is below…

“Herself the elf lives in a magical land tucked in a forest where tall trees stand. It’s where birds and bees live happy as can be; with all kinds of animals great and small cause Herself the elf takes care of them all. Now a very big job for a little elf, but not for an elf as clever as herself. Herself and friends use magic wands to keep things right, so nature keeps humming day and night.”
The doll is in very nice condition with bright silky hair a tiny dot on one cheek and clean body.

The pattern Simplicity 6314 dated 1983 is complete and uncut with all instructions to make all 4 dolls and clothing. The finished dolls will be 56cm or 22". The pattern envelope is spotless and in excellent condition except for softness at the corners.
Make a big sister to live with Herself the Elf and add all of her friends to the collection.
There is a series of 5 dolls – Herself the Elf and friends, Snowdrop, Meadow Morn, Willow Song and Woodpink, and animated special, books and records and an animated series.
These would make an interesting and whimsical collection.
