Sylvia doll prototype

This one-of-a-kind doll prototype was made in 1997 by the Hasbro toy designers for a proposed Dinotopia toy. 

She is the red-haired character Sylvia in ceremonial costume, with a coronet of flowers and a tiny handmade vest that fastens in the back with Velcro. Her dress is a crinkle cotton gauze made to look like pleated linen, with gold trim. We liked the way she is dressed in a timeless and modest way, and her face has a sweet smile.

This is not a reconfigured Barbie doll; it's completely unique and original, custom made for Dinotopia.

Although the Dinotopia toy line never went into production due to reversals in the movie project at Columbia, Hasbro's toymakers made a beautiful group of proposals, and their marketing people were excited about the prospect of that rare thing: a toy line designed for both boys and girls.
Sylvia appeared first in Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time in 1992.
