Ann-Judy Hair, genius crafter of Prince Camembert, Jellatine and Jilly Bean was growing up fast. A few magical birthdays later and she was just about out growing her Disney characters but still loving her confectionery creations. She'd quite fancied the revolutionary new Barbie dolls but had never actually owned one, as she preferred her own doll creations and besides Mrs Hair, queen of clean and hair dressing found them too racy and risqué for her liking and would way rather spend her hard earned money on bleaches for bathrooms and brown roots than on ‘tarty dolls’. Even though Ann-Judy didn’t possess a Barbie she still kept her finger on the pulse of popular culture and when Ken was introduced to Barbie in 1961 and got her (Barbie’s) heart racing, it got Ann-Judy mulling over a special someone for Jellatine. She had reached an age when she was noticing boys and the notion of boyfriends was filling her head out of concentration spans. It had been a while since she'd lovingly and brilliantly made Jellatine and Jilly Bean, but fortunately she had stored the remainder of the jelly fish in the depths of the deep freeze for all the while. So, one day when her folks were visiting some new neighbours, supplying them with freshly baked goods and volunteering worthwhile instruction for enhanced performance of their Hoover De Luxe 652 and its automatic shift, Ann-Judy made up her mind to give her fabulous jellexperiment one last whirl and whip up ein wunderschöner mann (beautiful man) for Jellatine. She took a bit of this an’ that an’ jello and after concentrated efforts the chiselled and deliciously handsome Anjello was engineered.
The jelly in the larder cupboard hadn’t been cherry that day, so Ann-Judy had improvised with clear gelatine, dried milk powder and instant vanilla pudding mixes as substitutes, ensuring that this jello fellow was creamy and dreamy and Jellatine totally swooned over him. There was an instant mutual attraction between the two of them and they took up a passion for knitting together as Anjello adored wearing Irish Aran sweaters and cable knit cardigans. Besides being smitten and knittin’ they experienced the thrill of nine and a half weeks of holding hands and skipping everywhere together carefree, giggling in cupboards, tittering on cupboards and canoodling behind cupboards until unexpectedly the blissful enchanted spell was horribly cut short the fateful day Mrs Hair invited one of her customer's daughter over for a play-date with Ann-Judy. As mothers are wont to do when they agonize over the prospect that their daughters may be some sort of social pariahs and that they ought to intervene they make arrangements and arrangements were made for Victoria to pay a visit. Victoria’s mum had been bragging loudly about her daughter’s Barbie doll collection while her hair was in perming curlers under the noisy professional dryer with fine mist accessory. She loquaciously informed everyone present in the Hair's salon that not only did Vicky have every edition of Barbie doll produced to date, but she also had a collection of original hand-made one-off prototypes of pre Bild Lilli dolls all the way from Germany, allegedly hand made by the legendary doll maestro Max Weissbrodt himself! (Now let it be said that sometimes people invent things for social agenda or dramatic flair, so who really knew if it was all true?) Vicky's mum maintained these particular pre Bild Lilli prototypes hadn't been approved as they were a hint too hefty about the hips and other such nonsense to be truly representative of the cartoon character Bild Lilli. The Bild Lilli doll was the forerunner to Barbie so she swanked about the fabulousness and originality of Vicky's collection, making a play-date with her simply irresistible...
