Coleco started selling this outfit in 1985. It likely ended production no later than sometime in 1986. If it is found on later kids, it was likely because the company was using up old stock.

Factory Variations

There are variations between KT and OK. The KT scarf is longer and has longer fringe. The knitted ruffles on the OK suit are wider and the knit of the OK hat is tighter. The KT had is longer.

As the PMI factory did not make many 500s series outfits, this is the rarest version of this outfit and I do not have one to make any comparisons with.
