Trivia

  • Many of these jumpers have cracked or peeled with age, storage in bad conditions, or a combination of both factors. As a result, jumpers in good condition can be rare and expensive.
  • The jumper tends to crack most around the seams and fold lines on the outside edges. To best maintain the material, store in temperate conditions. Do not leave it folded or lying flat for long periods of time- it is best to leave it on a doll or store it on a hanger with nothing else pressing on it.
  • Two types of vinyl seemed to be used on this outfit. One has more of a matte finish, and another has a shinier finish. The early version has a thicker material and the later has a more flexible, thin material.
