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

CHILDHOOD DOLL PHOTOS - PAGE SIX

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

Here are two beautiful dolls from 1958.  Real live doll, Sherie, is celebrating her fourth birthday with her brand new fashion doll that I am pretty sure is an Ideal Miss Revlon.

Berta takes just a moment from her playing to pose with her Ginny (or look a like?) doll.  Because the doll is so tiny and the photo small as well, it is difficult to get the detail.  Berta remembers it as her Ginny but using my magnifying glass, I kind of think it looks more like a Virga or Fortune type.   Either way, it is hard to find any childhood photos of girls with their small Ginny type dolls of the 50s.  I'm sure they are out there, do you have one to share?

This photo does not belong to me and I do not generally "take" images from other sources without permission.  However, I found it on the internet and thought it was so precious of a sweet little girl holding her Effanbee Patsy doll in 1931, that I wanted to "borrow it".  I do not know who the owner of this photo is, but if she would want me to remove it from this page, I will do so.  I just wanted to share this darling scan with all of you doll lovers.

I'm sure that Mattel's Dancerina was the dream doll of many little girls in the late 1960s.  Carolyn proudly poses with her new doll on Christmas day.  I'll bet that Carolyn and Dancerina shared many performances together.  Isn't it great that this photo documents the box as well?

This photo was taken of little Adriana in the late 50s/early 60s when she lived in Columbia, South America.   Her mother used to travel internationally and would always bring a doll back from her travels, to the waiting arms of her only daughter, Adriana (lucky girl).  Now Adriana lives in the USA but unfortunately has lost her favorite friend, she called her Susanna, and would love to find another.  I have this doll listed in my mystery doll photos but if any visitors recognize her please pass the information along.
  

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

A precious 1955-56 portrait of two sisters, Karen (L) and Arlene (age 6), clutching their favorite baby dolls.  Unfortunately Karen's doll is unidentifiable but Arlene's baby is clearly Ideal's Betsy Wetsy with the darling caracul style wig.  Arlene has since replaced her baby, which had been stolen, with a "new" vintage Betsy.  Her new Betsy is very much loved and cared for, and lives with several other 50s favorites like Miss Revlon and Ginger.

  

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

No markings on this photo, found in an antique shop.  Probably from the 20s based on the little girl's bobbed hairdo.  This sweet little girl stands in the front yard of what appears to be a row of houses, holding her dolly.  Unfortunately the original photo is a bit fuzzy so identifying the doll is difficult.

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.
