Little Pretty Kitty Snow Curl
Snow Curl came with the Perm 'N Play Set.  The kitty in this playset has a couple unique features: Bright Purple eyes & Eye Shadow, Hot Pink nose & mouth, and her "magical" curlable hair.
Similar to Mattel's "Quick Curl" Barbies this kitty also had very fine metal fibers in her hair (imagine plastic coated incredibly thin wire). This enabled her hair to be styled without the need to use heat or other typical methods of curling doll hair (water, curlers, and drying time). Metal fiber doll hair comes with the drawback of the possibility of over-manipulation resulting in breakage and/or the hair refusing to curl.
Just like Carla, her name, Snow Curl, is unproven until packaging or some other documentation is found. There is no mention of the name, Snow Curl, in any Dealer Catalogs or Retail Catalogs & the origin of the first mention of the name in unknown.

International Snow Curl and The Perm 'N Play Playset
It is currently unknown if there is an international version of The Perm 'N Play.
Snow Curl & The Perm 'N Play appeared in the 1991 Mattel Catalog (pages 90, 91, back-page), in the Mattel Girls Toys 1991 Repro Art Book, and Mattel's 1991 Pre-Toy Fair Sell Sheets. The image in the Pre-Toy Fair Sell Sheet is almost the same as the one used in the 1991 Mattel Catalog - the girl's positioning is slightly different. The image in the Repro Art Book was traced from the photo in the Pre-Toy Fair Sell Sheets.
