With all of it's wonderful original COLORFUL PRINTS featuring the story of a toy maker and his shop, whether a collector of CHILDREN'S BOOKS or just wanting that perfect display piece for ANTIQUE DOLLS, you will love this hard to find book!
The book tells a SWEET STORY about a toy shop owner who purchases a box of toys and dolls, but they all arrive with their heads broken off! The shop keeper is in quite a dilemma, as he doesn't know which head to put with which toy, so he asks the child who is reading the book to help. Each page of the book shows a toy without it's head, and a slot at the neck so that the reader can select the proper head for each toy. The book comes COMPLETE with all eight heads, which are laminated on cardboard so that they are sturdy like puzzle pieces including an American Indian, a Sailor, a Clown, a Tin Soldier, a sweet little Doll, an Asian Doll, a Teddy Bear, and a Rabbit!
All of the heads come stored in an envelope resembling a wooden box, and the story is simply ENCHANTING, with all of the pages in CHEERFUL COLORS, many of which we have captured here so you can get an idea of the CHARMING subject matter contained within it's cover!
An EXCELLENT DISPLAY as a conversation piece in a DOLL ROOM, the book has a HARD COVER and measures a manageable 9 3/4" wide by 6 3/4" tall. For scale purposes, our 13" antique French Fashion doll DELIGHTS in standing next to the book, as she knows that ANY collector of antique dolls and toys would also find this endearing story of a toy shop owner simply CHARMING------and we LOVE the interactive theme! The book is in overall EXCELLENT CONDITION, with all of the pages intact and very little age wear for being SIXTY-FIVE years old!
