15" All Antique Kestner 257 Character Flirty Toddler
Couldn't we all use a bit of a pick-me-up every now and again? And what better way to brighten your day than with so delightful a flirting toddler to play with your little ladies? We absolutely LOVE boy dolls, and this exquisite example will beguile the collector of fine German examples that truly stand out from the crowd. To tell you the truth, he almost crept into my collection, as I have almost never come across another in this rare size (and I do so love little ones in cabinet sizes.) Especially for those who are space conscious, a rare little gem like this will not cramp but only enhance any pre-existing display or vignette- and you can even get yourself to collecting toys for him... wouldn't he look dashing with a little ball or petite lamb to play with? For a cabinet sized dose of doll delight, grab this flirtatious boy up now before he's gone!
