Littlechap Family The Littlechap Family was a series of dolls released by Remco in the early 1960's. They were sort of an idealized Kennedy-like family consisting of Dr. John Littlechap (who shared a first name and some resemblance to the US President), his wife Lisa, and their two daughters, Judith, 17 and Libby, 10.

Each doll came boxed and wearing a terrycloth robe. There were some outfits and playsets available which sold separately. The dolls were discontinued (supposedly due to the death of President Kennedy) about 1963.

From contemporary Remco literature on the Littlechap family:
'Dr. John Littlechap lives with his family in Lanesville. There he is a respected member of the Lanevilles County Medical Society. Dr. John is a former U.S. Army/Air Force Flight Surgeon. His greatest loves are his family and golf and he wishes he could find more time for both. Lisa Littlechap is the elegant mother of the Littlechap family. Lisa is a former model, who gave up her career to stay at home to raise her daughters, Libby and Judy. Lisa is a fabulous cook and housekeeper. She is president of the P.T.A. and the best dressed woman in town. Judy is the big sister of the Littlechap Family. She is 17 years old. Judy attends Lanesville High School where she is and honor student in the senior class. Judy loves parties and crazy desserts! Libby is the little sister of the Littlechap family. She is 10 years old and in Grade 5 at Lanesville Elementary School. Libby loves climbing trees and pestering her sister. She wants to be a doctor like her daddy.'
