Journaling reads:
She was always one of my favorite dolls growing up & she was the "it" toy of her time. I believe my original is still @ mom & dad's amongst all of our other childhood playmates.
It was to our surprise when cleaning out grandma & grandpa castor's attic space that mom & I found an original rainbow bright still in the box. I...{in a childlike manner}...I exclaimed, "oh, my gosh! It's my rainbow brite doll!" and mom replied, "That's where that thing went! That was the year I had bought it for you for
Christmas and hid it so well, I had to buy you another one before Christmas day!"
After 21 years...my "long lost doll" was finally found!

This is my fav. for now. I love all the bright colors. And I so remember seeing that picture of you girls with Grandma and Grandpa. I think my kids played with the Rainbow Brite. Great story.
