Molly's meet outfit is a 1940s style. Like Kit's outfit, it reflects the need for versatility in one's wardrobe during a time when money was tight and outfits had to have more use. As with much of Molly's clothing, it follows a red, white and blue theme.
Navy blue knit sweater with a navy blue, red, and green argyle pattern knitted on the front.
Navy blue wool skirt.
Rather than having a full shirt under her sweater, Molly is given a dickey--a white collar with blue trim.
White ankle socks. Rather than stockings, many young girls began to wear low socks to preserve nylon.
Molly's braids are tied off with red ribbons at the end.
Silver glasses with round frames. They have been changed twice. The first change in the late 1990s was to the arms - rather than curving down like real glasses, they became straight. The second change, in the mid 2000s, was to the shape of the frames: they are no longer perfectly circular. They come in a red soft slipcase with a white, elastic that can fit around her wrist.
White cotton bloomer style underwear. While authentically Molly would have had ties on the side to hold them up (rubber was being reserved for war materials), the elastic makes for ease in wearing.
Navy wool beret. Molly is really never shown in the beret in the stories.
Shiny red vinyl-like bag with a long cloth strap and a snap.
White cotton handkerchief, trimmed in red. Molly's name is monogrammed in red.
Molly's coin is a replica 1943 steel penny; during the war, pennies were not made of copper due to shortages. Originally, this was an authentic coin.

Pre-Mattel and White-Bodied Doll Differences
- White bodied Molly dolls have a white muslin cloth body; both Mattel and Pre-Mattel Mollys have matching cloth bodies.
- The eyes are more gray in a White Bodied Molly.
- Molly is the first and was the only doll to be marketed with glasses until the release of Z as part of the contemporary line.
- In the books, Molly is described as having brown eyes; the doll was given grey eyes. The same thing happened with the Ruthie Smithens doll. No official reason was given for the discrepancy, though it can be assumed that this is to further differentiate Molly from Samantha as both dolls share a similar hair color.
