30 Days Of Retro Toys 2016 - Day 16 - Mattel Tippee-Toes

Day 16:
Mattel Tippee-Toes

(Life magazine, 1968)

As we can clearly see from the first two panels, Tippee-Toes is able to both ride a pony and a bicycle on her own (at presumably lightning-fast speeds, no less!) So why, as panel three's caption says, does she need "her own little girl"? It doesn't seem like Tippee needs anyone to take care of her! So what does she want the Little Girl for?

Affection, I guess. And someone to fetch her apples.
