If this doesn't look like the Cindy in the Revlon section, I will eat your hat. This ad says Meet The Huggable Family. The only difference I can see is the bow is plaid and on the Cindy's I have seen, it is a ribbon tie. Do you think Cindy has a family we don't know about?

 
Oh...these are going to be fun.  I have the ad stretched out so maybe you can see them closer, and identify some of them from little 10 inch outfits laying around.
The big picture is of Cindy in a beautiful lace blouse, and sleek toreodore pants, with high heeled shoes.

John Marchette sent in pictures from a toy catalog that was put out in 1957 with these pictures of the fashion Horsman dolls that were for sale at that time.  Thanks, so much, John.
