Collection Completed

I began collecting Li’l Missys in 1975 and 42 years later I have FINALLY completed the collection.    The Collection link has been updated with images of completed dolls.

I did not collect the dolls with the musicbox or centerpiece dolls, so I do not have a completed image for them. If you find a link with no image that is due to that doll does not exist or may be found under a different model number.  These are the models in question:

13347 – Happy Holiday
140/13361D – Happy Holly
13385 – Her Royal Majesty
13421 – Her Royal Highness
13357 – Orphan Denise
13358 – Runaway Denise
Unk – Snowball Fight

I would like to thank Maureen for gifting me Chocolate Kiss as no matter how much I tried to acquire it on eBay I always got out bid.

I know that there are collectors out there who were club members and have a few club dolls which I’d really like to someday obtain images for those dolls:

13330 – Sue
13331 – Liza
13332 – Sherri

All my dolls are kept in plastic cases that I began purchasing in the 70’s which at that time were only $1.79 a box now they are $3.79 a box. The same case is still being sold at the Container Store box 4″x7″ size. Every doll fits in this case.

Happy Collecting!









Collectors… Does anyone have the entire Lil Missy Collection?  I’m going off the wikipedia list and according to that list I need the following dolls:

  • 13385 Her Royal Majesty
  • 13340 Chocolate Kiss
  • 13446 Moss Rose/Flower Series
  • 13457 August – Peridot
  • 13904 Pink Bird of Happiness
  • 13907 Red/Christmas Bird of Happiness

Dolls on the wikipedia list that I’m not sure if they really belong on the list:

  • 13357 Orphan Denise
  • 13358 Runaway Denise
  • unk model # Snowball Fight
  • 13385 Her Royal Majesty – not sure as 13421 Her Royal Highness is on the list too however there are two Southern Belles so its quite possible Her Royal Majesty and Her Royal Highness are both part of the collection.

Also, another collector has told me that the following 3 dolls could only be ordered from the catalog.  I do not remember seeing these 3 sold in the stores all those years ago:

13330 – Sue
13331 – Liza
13332 – Sherri

Anyone who has the entire collection can you verify the wikipedia list?  If there are others missing let me know and I can update The Collection link on the website.

My goal for the website is to document the entire collection.

Thank you



Lil Missy Memories

My Mom and I began purchasing Lil Missy kits at Leeward’s in Illinois in the late 70’s.  As I got older we stopped buying the kits so I didn’t complete the collection.  Then I learned that unopened kits could be found on eBay so I’m once again obtaining the kits.  The dolls are displayed in a spare bedroom of my home and I have some dolls on my desk at work.  All of the dolls are in individual clear plastic cases so I’m able to stack them which takes up less room.
