Red-Headed Mutant


How did an unweaned rugrat manage to grow out three or four feet of bright red hair? Was she born with that mop? If so, Mom must have had one heck of a birthing experience.

Is it a wig? if so, please explain in 1000 words or less.

Between the name, the hair, and the ad copy going on about the amazing life-like "Wonderskin"... Is this some kind of stealth ad for a sex toy? Because I am way creeped out right now.

I'm wondering where they got the nerve to brag about that rubber stuff!

The fine print says the doll is 13 inches long, so the hair is more like 9 inches long. Even so, hair would take about 1-1/2 years to grow that long. On a life-sized child that would be about 6 years' growth.
Conclusion: the kid is from California, where 'arrested development' is considered a birthright.

A whirl with the inflation calculator gives a 2012 price of about $29.00. Not too expensive but I'd like to know how good was that "Wonderskin"?
