Although Dressy Bessy was known as a rock band in the 2010's, in the 1980's, it was a doll by Playskool. In reality, the Dressy Bessy dolls were around long before the 80's. Never the less, you might have gotten your first one in the 80's. Dressy Bessy was one of those attempts at teaching young kids how to dress themselves as they came with buttons, snaps, zippers, and ties. They continued producing the Dressy Bessy rag doll well into the 2000's and beyond.
