© 1975 - Young Sweethearts - Melinda

1976 Mattel issued a new doll line called "Young Swearthearts". It's about Melinda and Michael who relive their first love - a completely new theme in the children's room. The both have no references to Barbie. Melindas head is a bit taller than the normal Barbie head. The face has some similarity with the German Francie face that was patented in the same year.

Her friend Michael has the same mark, but it's outside
