It is so enjoyable to get a peek into the past by looking at old photos.

CHILDHOOD DOLL PHOTOS - PAGE NINETEEN

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

 Danielle shared this photo of herself with her Raggedy Andy doll made by Knickerbocker from 1978.  This outfit Andy is wearing is sometimes referred to as the Bicentennial pattern.  The pants are a powder blue with a bold red/white striped shirt.  It was sold into the 80s as well.

Here is Danielle a few years later, still with that beautiful smile, proudly displaying her Ideal Pretty Curls doll.

One of the main reasons Danielle (photos above) had written me was to try to find more information on this photo of her grandmother Lillian's doll, in 1932.  The best we can come up with so far is perhaps Baby Dimples by Horsman.  However, most of those I've seen have compo legs, and these appear to be cloth.  I'm continuing to research this but any suggestions would be helpful.

Here is little Karen at Christmas, 1972 with her brand new doll that quickly became her favorite.  In 1977 her puppy chewed it up and destroyed it, leaving Karen to grieve for days. She doesn't remember the name of the doll but I am convinced that this is a larger version of Vogue's Ginny Baby, popular in during that time period.

Faith remembers vividly the original brown calico print dress that her Fisher Price My Friend Jenny doll came in.  However she had more fun playing with her in this bridal gown that her mother and grandmother had stitched for her.  She used to pretend that Jenny was Cinderella and married the prince of  her dreams!

The love of dolls is generational! This is Faith's grandmother, Joan, with her wonderful Ideal Shirley Temple doll in the 1930s.  Shirley is wearing her dress called "Our Little Girl" from the movie with the same name (1935).  This dress came in both red or blue.  Wonder which one it is?

  

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

The person who sold me this photo thought that the doll might be an F&B Patsy but in researching, my best guess is more likely she might be an Averill, Madame Hendren "Peaches" because of the etching of the molded hair style.   In any case, this is a beautiful 1930s photo of TWO LITTLE DOLLS.

Perhaps you have a treasured photo of yourself, or a loved one, with a childhood doll,  that you would like to include on this page.  It could even be a photo of an unidentified child that you stumbled across in an antique mall, like some that I've included.  What is important is that there be a doll in the shot and it be somewhat vintage.   If you have a CLEAR photo that you would like to add to the page, email me to get instructions on sending it.
