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

CHILDHOOD DOLL PHOTOS - PAGE FIVE

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

Wendy couldn't be more proud to show off her beautiful new baby doll.   Unfortunately she doesn't remember her dollie's name or maker.  She is very typical of the large baby dolls popular during this time like NOMA or Alexander.  The outfit looks to be very well made.  Photo taken around 1951 or 52.  I've also posted this picture on the mystery doll page, as well.

My daughter, April, happily  introducing Brianna Carlina, her first CPK, to  her brand new baby sister (preemie CPK) name?? on Christmas morning, 1984.  (I'll never forget the steps I went through to make this little "miracle" happen!  I'm sure many a mom can relate.)

Darling little Emma is not much bigger than her Fisher Price "My First Baby Doll".  This photo was taken in later 90s but the dolls were first released in the early 90s.  This is the white/blue version with little rounded ears (a bear?).  There is also a pink one with bunny ears.  As Emma grew, she became very attached to this little doll.  It became her very best friend.

I'm grateful to visitor, Liz, who shared this precious photo of her mother, Eloise (age 4), taken in Peoria, Arizona in 1934. Though the doll is not facing forward enough to positively identify her, it is clear she is a type of "mama" doll, popular during this time period. There is a striking resemblance between "mommy" and dollie. Those cheeks, don't you love them!!!

Many thanks to visitor Diana, who has shared with us, a wonderful photo of her paternal great-grandmother.   Strikingly beautiful, young Rosa Ann (about 9 or 10 years) poses proudly with her beloved doll in 1908.   I'll have to hunt through some reference books for this beautiful doll as I do not specialize in the antiques and am not familiar with it on sight.  Most likely this doll was made in Germany or France. (Photo taken in Cub Run, Kentucky)

Faith proudly displays her beautiful, and very large, Deluxe Reading Little Red Riding Hood doll on Christmas morning, 1954.  
I had a close up photo of this little guy on the mystery page but we have finally found out who he is.  This is Faith again with her American Character Jimmy John (also has been identified as possibly Bonnie Prince Charles), Christmas, 1954.  Could she have been lucky enough to get two big beautiful dolls in one year?

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

Here is lovely little Nedia standing at attention next to her beautiful bisque doll (who also seems to be at attention!).  I bought this picture because it was noted that it was taken in 1912.  My own grandmother would have been a little girl in 1912 and this is likely the type of doll she may have had.  My grandmother could not remember specifics about her doll, but did remember receiving a very beautiful doll for Christmas, then dropping her and having her head break into several pieces, much to her dismay!  Perhaps it was one just like this lovely bisque.  My grandmother remembers sending the doll away and a while later receiving her back all "good as new".

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.
