Little Pretty Kitty Carla
The Beauty Mobile Playset came with an adult purple kitty known as Carla.
Her name, Carla, is unproven until packaging or some other documentation is found. There is no mention of the name, Carla, or the very figure itself, in any Dealer Catalogs or Retail Catalogs. The origin of the name and the first known photo of this kitty came from a collector and their own identification website.
The Beauty Mobile
The Beauty Mobile itself transformed from a vehicle (that looks like a baby buggy or stroller) into to a vanity. The large back wheels fold up into tables, the purple bow that sits on top of the Beauty Mobile is removable and doubles as a large lavender comb, once the comb is removed the basket folds up and reveals a mirror.

International Beauty Mobile Playset & Carla
In the 1990 ARCO/Mattel catalog there is an International item number listed which implies that it exists but dealer catalogs have been known to show toys that never make it to retail. Until proof is found an International version is unconfirmed.
The Beauty Mobile made a Catalog appearance in the 1990 Arco Catalog but looked notably different than the official toy release - different colored wheels, different colored bonnet-hood, and different colored bow comb. Bow is the featured kitty figure and the page also shows Peekablue on the MOC example as well as another kitty(similar to Peekablue) in the box-window. Carla is not shown at all. The entry includes not only the U.S. item number but also the International item number.
