1950's Ideal Toy Co 14" BETSY WETSY Doll -- All Original
My first love...
This is the little doll that "started it all" for me over 25 years ago when I began collecting and documenting dolls.
My very first doll as a young child was this 14" size mid-1950's Betsy Wetsy. In an effort to 'recapture' my own childhood memories I wanted my memories back when my children left the 'nest'. I've come a long way...
Here is a perfect example of the same doll. She comes ALL ORIGINAL with her soft print kimono robe, cotton undershirt vest, white cotton flannel diaper, and her floral striped dress with matching bonnet. French Val lace, and ric-rac trim offset the bodice and wide-brim bonnet.
I have included her original Ideal glass nursing bottle that is MINT~
This baby came directly out of her display box where she required a bath from years of sitting on a shelf in a closet. I gently laundered her dress and bonnet. Baby herself appears FLAWLESS -- I'd call this baby a PERFECT 10. Her face still has the matte finish to the paint that only and unplayed with doll retains; her eyes open and close, and all eyelashes are present, thick, full and even. She has a high color face and gorgeous brown molded curls -- just about perfect. As appropriate, she is marked correctly on the nape of her neck: 14 / Ideal Doll / Made in U.S.A. Her 5-part vinyl body is clean and without marks; give her a healthy squeeze and she squeaks loudly in protest.
Baby's clothing layette is all original and in mint condition.
Bring back your own childhood memories of playtime with Betsy once again!
