This vintage soft cover book is in good condition. There is some light staining and scuffing on the front and back cover which doesn't affect any of the inside pages. There is a crayon mark on the unprinted back of one of the pages and a tear at the spine for one page which does not affect the dolls on the page. The binding is tight and the dolls bright.
Fun for playing with or just displaying.
