Anyway, I believe that how Francie was advertised, as Barbie's cousin. I don't remember how old I was when I received Francie as a Christmas gift. The same year my sister received Stacy. Both were young and hip and had clothes the represented the fashion of the era-the 1970's. I remember Stacy came with geometric earrings....Francie didn't. I thought Francie was beautiful with her blond hair and brown eyes! Did anyone else have Franice or know when they stopped making these dolls?
