Drink & Wet Unmarked Baby Doll

This baby, above, is very typical of the large drink & wet baby dolls that were ever so popular in the 1950s.  Some of the known ones are American Character Tiny Tears and Baby Toodles, Ideal's Betsy Wetsy, and Alexander's Kathy.  In addition, many found today are unmarked, or marked with untraceable codes, making it difficult to identify them.   Some of the companies that made these harder to identify dolls were the Natural Doll Company, and Eegee.    These were probably the bargain dolls of the times.  Most were made of hard vinyl, molded painted hair, sleep eyes (that often get cloudy), and nurser mouths with an exit hole in the bottom.  The above doll has been dressed in real baby clothes.
