A color-coded songbook was included with each doll, so that kids could play tunes with the notes such as "Mary Had a Little Lamb," "Three Blind Mice," and "The Farmer in the Dell."
The four original Love Notes dolls available were Bucky (a cowboy), Lilty (African-American), Melody (blonde hair), and Nellie (auburn hair).
Li'l Love Notes dolls were released shortly thereafter. These were slightly smaller at 10", and included two characters, Kelly and Swingy. Not as successful as the original line, the Li'l version didn't last nearly as long, so that they are more difficult to find on the aftermarket today.
