This rare and fabulous pair look like they have been together since the 1950's. They are all original and mint. Both dolls still retain their original hairnets They are wearing matching pajamas with matching terrycloth slippers. The pajamas are tagged and mint, the elastic is like new as are the ribbons. The color is brilliant on the pajamas, no fading or stains. They are both tagged. Their little terrycloth slippers on Gigi have stretched elastic and on Mary the heels are missing. I would leave them with the dolls but you may want to find a cute pair of the pink slippers with the pompoms to match the pink in the pajamas.
Both dolls have a beautiful mat finish and high coloring. The 18 inch Gigi has the softer wig with an upsweep with all the original pins and set. The 14 inch Mary has the dynell wig with the original hairnet. She is missing one barrette, but the hair is in it's original set and mint.
The are both strung tight and will stand perfectly for you. Gigi has Mary Hoyers autograph on her back. Gigi has a small indentation on her left thigh and a little "mole" of plastic on her right, these do not detract from the beauty of these dolls. Both dolls have freely movable sleep eyes. There are no bad odors and they come from a non-smoking home.
Layaway is an option as always because you don't want to miss the opportunity to own these two wonderful dolls from the 1950's, whether you collect specifically Mary Hoyer or you collect hard plastic dolls from that era, you will be satisfied with these beauties.
