1974 Mattel Happy Family Dolls

Hal, Hattie, baby Hon, Grandpa & Grandma Happy

The Happy Family dolls are the black doll friends of the above Sunshine Family dolls, using the same doll molds. Just like the Sunshine Family, they originally came with Hal (dad), Hattie (mom) and Baby Hon. The Happy Grandparents were also sold separately.

Baby Hon grew up to be a little girl called Hon and got a new baby sibling in 1978. The little girl versions of Sweets Sunshine and especially Hon Happy are probably the hardest to find of the Family dolls because they were only produced for about a year.
