Donny and Marie Osmond Dolls from the 70s

It is Throwback Thursday. Raise your hand if you had Donny and Marie Osmond dolls when you were young! I remember I had them. I loved watching their variety show too. Remember all the skaters at the beginning of each show? And who could forget that Donny was a little bit rock ‘n’ roll and Marie was a little bit country.

If you are too young to remember these dolls, go ask your mom, she will remember!

Do you have a memory of Donny and Marie? The dolls, the show, the music?

I really don’t remember them from TV, however a few years ago we went to see Jim Brickman , & Donnie Osmand was one of the guest singers.

They both are still growing strong and look young still!

Robyn! I still have my Donny & Marie Dolls! I had a huge crush on Donny as a teenager. I loved their variety show. Last year I took my daughter to the Pantages Theater in Hollywood and saw them perform live at their Christmas in Los Angeles show. It was awesome. I can share a photo if you wish but not sure how to on this thread.

Awesome! Don’t you just love that handkerchief hemline on Marie’s dress? Sorry, I don’t have pics enabled on my commenting because of spammers who put up pics randomly.

I remember! I don’t think I missed many of their shows…he was and is so adorable still. Hearthrob for sure. I can still hear that tune, She’s a little bit Counnntry, He’s a little bit RROck n Rolll.! Wow, I see Marie on her diet commercials and she looks so young. Wish I knew her P. surgeon. Crazy how they do that!

I know – it is amazing how long they look!

I actually have no memory of Donny or Marie (dolls or music or show); It may be my age, but I suspect I was just out of it in that sense. But those dolls look fabulous!

The dolls were the must have thing for girls my age back in the day!

My walls were covered with Donny pictures from Tiger Beat magazine and similar fan rags! He was definitely my #1 idol. I was over it by the time the show came on, LOL.

I remember Tiger Beat magazine too – Rick Springfield and Scott Baio were really big int hem during my time.
