Must Have Cute: Vintage Pussy Meow Kitty Cat Fashion Doll

Pussy Meow

Anything which can be described as "kitchy" and "kitty" are right up my alley, which is why the Pussy Meow Cat Fashion Doll by Remco is catnip to a girl like me! Blogger Karswell of And Everything Else Too, recently shared the vintage score he made at a toy show last year, and writes, "and even though I'm a dude and this is obviously a girl toy, I love her just the same as my monsters and Shogun Warriors."



The pink fashion diva, perhaps a precursor to those oddly dressed plush Bratz cats, was released in 1966 as a feline companion to an equally misfit looking poodle named TV Jones. The dolls would tilt their heads if you pushed buttons on their chest, and came packaged inside of a plastic television set carrying case.

Extra ensembles could be purchased for the feline fashionista, including styles ranging from "a schoolgirl, a hullabaloo, a secret agent, and an evening gown." I especially admire her wild mane of cotton candy colored hair, but as Barbie fans know, keeping track of four tiny shoes instead of two must have really been a challenge!

I lost out on so many of those on ebay! What a find! I do, however, have many Peteenas and her entire wardrobe except for her stockings and some accessories from her evening gown set.
