The Rosebud babies were a set of small toddlers with chubby legs and arms. There were three different head molds for the kids but the research made by Michael J. Augustyniak's and mine differs. They might have been made with different faces but the ones I list here are the ones I found with the sculpt I just named I, II and III. He has put them differently to each head mold (and the pictures in his book Thirty Years of Mattel Fashion Dolls of the dolls I may, or may not have, are too small to see). The II/Gold and III/Scarlet was only used with the Rosebud babies as far as I can tell so far.

The #3 mold has wide cheeks and a pouty mouth, more so than #2.
