Lisa Frank Fab Friends

Lisa Frank Fab Friends

Before there was Smiggle there was Lisa Frank, churning out colourful dolphins, panda and unicorn emblazoned stationery and other goods for tween girls across the world. Back in 2000 Lisa Frank teamed up with Play Along to release a doll line called Fab Friends. Initially consisting of three girls called Lisa, Cassie and Mara, the latter was later dropped in favour of new friend Vega.

The dolls stood 11 inches tall, had rooted hair, and came packaged with pets and skate shoes. Then skate shoes and a shoe box. There were also smaller dolls (c. 10 inches) available packaged with a bag, extra shoes, and plastic cell phone.
