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

CHILDHOOD DOLL PHOTOS - PAGE TWO

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

Another photo shared with me by a visitor trying to identify her mother's doll.  I thought this doll resembled the "kewpy" type carnival dolls, popular in the 20s.  She has sort of a Buddy Lee expression.
  

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

A happy Christmas morning for sure for Jeanette and her brand new Cameo Kewpy in 1955.  Do you think brother, Donnie is wishing he got one too?
  

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

Natalie entertaining her "friends" at an instant tea party in 1984.  Always the proper hostess!  The doll in the back is Fisher-Price Susie Soft Sounds, and the other two are CPKs, Brianna Carlina and Lizzy Aileen.

Here is Bobbi with her older cousin Carrie.  She is holding the doll that her Aunt and Uncle gave her for Christmas in 1964.  Unfortunately the doll's face is not clear and Bobbi doesn't remember if this was a store bought doll or handmade (we've been doing a little research and believe this may be a doll made by NASCO). Bobbi named him "Yawny" because his expression had an open mouth as if he were sleepy.  His body was stuffed cloth with non-removable p.j.s. Yawni was a very cherished childhood doll.

Diana is holding her favorite childhood doll which was a hand-me-down from her cousin.  The doll was made by the Natural Doll Company in the early 50s and is very typical of dolls made in that era.  Diana is posing in this 1962 photo, not long after she was given the "used" doll.  She remembers many cherished hours of play with her "baby".

A stunning professional photograph of a young girl proudly posing with her beautiful, high quality composition mama doll from the 1920s.  The doll's dress has a tag in front that says "Sunshine".  Possibly from the Century Doll Company.  May have been sold through Sears and Roebuck catalog.  Wouldn't it be fun to find a doll today in as wonderful condition as this one?

Who is having a birthday today?!!  This was a popular way to decorate a birthday cake for a little girl in the 1950s.  The doll is set into the center of the cake and the cake becomes a fancy skirt.  When I first saw this picture I thought that the doll might have been a poodle-cut Ginny but a closer look revealed it to be one of the inexpensive novelty dolls made of thin plastic (probably made by Knickerbocker).

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.
