In 1998 Skipper has her own Fashion Avenue line, in the larger “Teen Skipper” size that debuted in the 1997 retail year. Skipper like the Kelly and Ken lines, are in packages with just the doll name, “teen Skipper” on the front, with teen in yellow all lowercase letters, hearts and a border. The inside of the front background is white and grey with simple daisy line drawing, and “wood” tables to “hold” the accessories of each outfit. The back of the package is similar to Kelly’s line with a pink and periwinkle background with “photos” of Skipper and her friends wearing the outfits in this line. The text on the back is: “Real Clothes for Teen Skipper doll! Fashion Avenue Collection teen Skipper What we wear! Teen clothes are trendy and fun … For day, for play, for everyone!
