Random doll of the day: Jane West from Marx's Best of the West toy line.
Jane is about 12 inches tall, is made of hard plastic/vinyl, and is jointed at the neck, shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. Once upon a time she also had plug in hands, but I lost those a long time ago. notice, that she proudly wears jeans (even if she did come with a purse and compact) and carries a rifle.
My brother and I were the proud owners of 5 Best of the West dolls/action figures and 3 horses. Sadly, due to our abuse, only Jane is still around. I love that this line appealed to both boys and girls and encouraged them to play together.
