Hong Kong Lilli * Babs by Fab Lu Ltd

No longer the owner of this doll.

 

In 1955 the German Bild Lilli doll was first sold in Germany and is unmarked. Later the doll molds were exported and sold in several countries, including the USA.

 

Blank molds went to Fab-LU (Lufton Ltd.) who sold a doll called Babs. She was 11 1/2 inches tall, packaged in a clear tube with "Babs" The Teenage Fashion Model, Made in British Crown Colony of Hong Kong, written on the front. They went to a British Hong Kong firm named Dura-Fam Ltd. which also produced the same doll which is found marked "Hong Kong" These are referred to as the Hong Kong Lillis.
