Here is a rare Ideal "Jackie" doll that was made for only one year, 1962. Ideal had created a 15" fashion doll in 1961. She was sold by Montgomery Ward and named Carol Brent. She was also marketed as "Liz" for stores other than Wards. That doll had painted eyes. In 1962 Ideal altered the doll's head mold to add sleep eyes and named her "Jackie" assumed to be after the then First Lady, Jackie Kennedy. The doll had a very short shelf life and disappeared after one year. It was thought to be because the White House did not approve of a doll named after the First Lady. Today, the doll is very hard to find. This Jackie is in good overall condition. She has high color facial makeup with dark full red lips, vibrant cheek blush, lower painted black lashes and arched brown eyebrows. Her sleep eyes are in need of cleaning and open and close easily with molded lashes intact. Her light brown hair is long and down and she has bangs. Her body is excellent with all joints tight and all fingers present She is marked "IDEAL TOY CORP./G-15L" on the back of her neck and "IDEAL TOY CORP/M-15-M" on the upper part of her torso. She wears panties, halter top bra, and a lace slip with garters having that have snaps. She has on knee high nylons. She wears open toe strappy high heeled sandals Jackie is a wonderful doll to add to any fashion doll collection.
