Midge Hadley is a fictional doll character in the Barbie line of toys by Mattel. She was first released in 1963. She was marketed as Barbie's best friend. No Midge dolls were sold for the rest of the vintage years after the 1960s.
She was re-introduced in 1988 as part of the play line, though two vintage reproduction dolls were made specifically for collectors in 1993 and 1998. The dolls sold in this time period usually had red hair, often with freckles, and her eye color was usually blue or green. Also in the period, Wedding Day Midge was sold, with the groom being Allan Sherwood. Allan had been marketed as Midge's boyfriend in the vintage years.
Allan Sherwood is a fictional doll character who is part of the Barbie line of toys by Mattel. Created in 1963 and first introduced to the market in 1964, Allan was designed to be the boyfriend of Barbie's friend, Midge. He was also created to be Ken's "buddy." He is currently the only male friend of Ken to be given a surname. The early Allan dolls usually had red hair and brown eyes. Like Ken, Allan was an 11 1/2" doll with straight arms and straight legs. Unlike the first Ken dolls, he had molded hair. A bent-leg Allan doll later appeared. After 1965, no more vintage Alan dolls were produced, but he later returned two times.
In 1991, Alan made his first return for a wedding line when he and Midge were married. The spelling of Allan's name changed to Alan at this time.
