MOD EAR/ MALIBU PERIOD – Francie Size Friends
Casey (1967 – 1970)
Twiggy (1967 – 1968)
A second doll in Francie’s size, Casey, was issued as “Francie’s fun friend” from 1967. That same year a Twiggy doll was also made, resembling Casey but with heavier painted-on “makeup”. The Twiggy doll was made through 1968, and Casey through 1970.
Casey returned briefly in 1975 as “Baggie Casey”, but she was made with the same head mold as Francie. In 1971 a Malibu Francie doll was made, using the Casey head mold but with a tanned body and long blond hair.

BECKY 1971 and 2009 .
In the 1971 Mattel catalog, there were pictures of a new doll named “Becky”. She was made from the Casey head mold, was hand painted and shown in blonde, although prototypes of her were made in blonde, brunette and redhead.
Eventually, for reasons unknown, Mattel decided not to mass produce Becky. Some 1971 fashions could be found in stores labeled as being for “Francie and her new friend Becky” and are highly sought after by collectors.
“Busy Becky” was made by Mattel in 1970. Was not a Barbie-line doll. She was a Montgomery Wards exclusive and is very difficult to find complete with her original accessories.
