If you like character all bisque, whether they are German or Japanese, this is a good group to own. The one in the yellow 2-piece knit outfit with the gold cap is marked 161 / Made in Germany and he/she is 4 inches tall. The toddler with the pouty expression has jointed arms, deeply molded curly hair (brown paint rubbed off), painted features with a closed mouth and blue eyes looking upward and is well modeled especially at the knees and cheeks. Cute kid!! The little girl with the molded blue hair bow is 3-1/2 in. tall, molded blonde curly hair, painted features, shy expression, jointed arms that need restringing, and is marked "Made / in / Japan" on her back. She has a chip at the back of the right stringing hole. There is a tiny piece of bisque stuck on her forehead and a red line (probably paint) on the right side near her ear. Still cute as a button!! The girl with the pink headband and pink and blue swimsuit is 3-1/2 in. tall and is marked "Made / in / Japan" on her back. Heavily molded hair with curls all over, painted features and jointed arms. She is ready for a swim! 4-1/2 in. little Indian boy with molded clothes and feathered headdress. Black painted hair, painted features with side glancing eyes, frozen (no joints), a bit of paint rubbing. Marked "Made in / Japan" on his back and stamped "Japan" on his feet. No damage. Next one is a 4-1/2 inch Groom wearing glasses, a top hat and ribbed pants with his tuxedo, tails, vest, black shoes and bowtie. Some missing paint and marked "Made in / Japan" on his back. Has an intellectual look about him. The 5 inch Betty Boop is adorable, although her face needs a soap and water cleaning. She has the blonde molded curls, big blue eyes surrounded by upper and lower long painted lashes, rosy cheeks, and jointed arms that need restringing. She is wearing the remains of her silk dress or some type of body covering. The Byelo type baby seated in front is 4-1/2 inches long, wire jointed at the shoulders and hips. Upturned big toes, pudgy body, painted features and molded hair. He has painted pupils (black) but remains unpainted from the factory. He has some smudges scattered all over but they are from the factory. He needs a bath and I believe some will clean off. He was made to compete with the German Byelo. Marked with a mold number "167" and "Made in / Japan" on his back.
