American Character 1950's Tiny Tears Doll in Red Corduroy Romper & Jacket Still Cries
SUMMER MARKDOWN SALE 1950'S TINY TEARS DOLL IN RED CORDUROY LESS THAN MY COST!
This adorable 1950's American Character Tiny Tears doll dressed in her favorite red corduroy romper with matching jacket and her cute shoes, still cries! I believe this doll is from the later 1950's according to what I read on a website today about American Character dolls. She has a hard plastic face and a pliable vinyl like body. Her arms and legs are jointed, although her arms are easier to stay in place than her legs once you move them. Her curly hair which has a red tint to it, is rooted onto a skull cap. When I tried to measure her, holding her hair close to her head, she is app. 13 1/2" long. I thought she was 15, but that's with her hair standing up high.
She has a patent number and says American Character Doll on the back of her neck. It was hard to get a clear picture of the raised lettering, but if you need more information, I will look closer. When you squeeze on her belly, she cries, and I understand lots of the older dolls have ceased making the sound, but this darling little doll is still ready to cry or sort of squeak upon demand. Wouldn't this make a perfect Christmas present for some special little girl on your gift list this Christmas? Perhaps it's for you? I won't tell, unless you want me to let Old Santa Claus know! This little gal is in great condition with only a few little stains on her face that may clean up. I just didn't know how to best take care of her, so will leave that to the doll experts! She's dressed and ready to pack for travel, whether near in the U.S. or across the waters! I've mailed several dolls to Australia and never had a disappointed buyer! I don't think you will be either.
