It has been a while since I’ve posted anything new for Momoko dolls, but today’s dress project isn’t exactly new. I first designed this dress for 10 inch Moana dolls, and I’ve since discovered that it will fit a number of different dolls besides Disney’s Moana.
One of those dolls is Momoko, a doll produced in Japan by Sekiguchi (AKA PetWorks).
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls*:
- Creatable World dolls
- Disney fairy 9 inch dolls (like the little Tinkerbell dolls)
- Disney Princess 10 inch dolls
- Disney’s 10 inch Moana dolls
- Ideal’s vintage Pepper dolls
- Momoko dolls
- Petite Barbie dolls
- Project MC Squared dolls
- Rainbow High 10 and a half inch dolls
- Skipper dolls (modern)
- Spin Master Liv dolls
- Vintage 1960’s to 1970’s Skipper dolls
- Vintage 1980’s Skipper dolls
- Vintage Francie dolls
- vintage Sunshine Family adult female dolls

According to Wikipedia, “Ideal Toy Company was an American toy company founded by Morris Michtom and his wife, Rose. During the post–World War II baby boom era, Ideal became the largest doll-making company in the United States.” They produced the Tammy family line of dolls, including Ideal Pepper dolls, but eventually the Tammy line of dolls went out of production (with the exception of the Sindy doll — the UK version — which has had a recent revival). There have been a complicated series of sales of rights for Ideal toys since then, and you can read about it on Wikipedia, if you’re interested. But at the time of this blog post, the trademark name “Tammy” for these dolls was abandoned and has remained “dead” (according to the US Trademark database) since 2004.
According to Wikipedia (as of 9 January 2022), Strawberry Shortcake “is a cartoon character used in greeting cards published by American Greetings. The line was later expanded to include dolls… The franchise is currently owned by the Canadian children’s television company WildBrain and American brand management company, Iconix Brand Group through the holding company Shortcake IP Holdings LLC.” I was unable to find a website for Shortcake IP Holdings LLC, but I believe they own the US trademark for the dolls, even though I believe my own doll was originally made and marketed by Hasbro.
