13" Brunette Effanbee Dy-Dee Kin 1937 Mold 1 with BLUE Eyes
This is one of the two of my 'prized' Mold 1 Dy-Dee Kin babies. This little treasure has the most lovely and vivid tin litho blue eyes, with full and even brush lashes, high coloring, and clearly defined facial features... Why is this important?
The 13" Dy-Dee Kin was produced by Effanbee in 1937 for only ONE year. This makes them harder to find in any condition at all. And, when you do find one, it is truly rare to find one with an intact rubber body, eyes that have full lashes and have not rusted or yellowed, or anything else in a laundry list of things that plague the survival of this particular size Dy-Dee. Of course, the usual chips and bumps and scrapes and rubs are common, as with all other size Dy-Dee babies. Then there are the crucial issues at hand... in all the years I have collected Dy-Dee, and thousands have passed through my portal, I have never seen a fully intact rubber body that had not hardened and whose limbs were fragile and often detached... or threatening to do so.
Here, my beautiful blue-eyed beauty has high coloring and lovely eyes, albeit replaced from another 'donor' Dy-Dee Kin whose head was not so fortunate to survive well... she lives on here. Her eyes no longer close, at times one needs to be helped into position; and there is a tiny touchup under one of her captivating eyes. She has an angelic countenance, does she not?
As with all the rubber bodies, she has a replaced rubber one, and in good condition, enabling you to play with Dy-Dee Kin once again and dress her in her GENEROUS ORIGINAL WARDROBE. Stunning!
She comes with all you see here. Her TWO DRESSES are Effanbee Dy-Dee KIN original factory issue. The blue cotton print dress is in MINT condition -- fresh crisp and NEVER WORN -- and documented in Barbara Hilliker's popular and definitive book about Dy-Dee. The pale blue shadow print dress, original PINK slip, and bonnet I have had just three of in 25 years (see my 15" Dy-Dee in the trunk with the same dress set).
The pink cotton twill coat and the bonnet is a superbly made set from one of the many popular patterns issued by the big companies for generous Moms, Aunts, and Grandmothers to stitch up with love and extreme care, as was the fashion of that era. Note the delicate embroidery and lace and ribbon trim... love the button 'faux' closure at the bodice.
There are other extra ORIGINAL outfits: Signature Dy-Dee drop seat pajamas; white flannel drop-seat pajamas; white flannel robe with pink floral lapel; pink 'eiderdown' robe; and a red-and-white stripe seersucker romper w/belt. All these are in excellent to mint condition.
There are plenty of original accessories as pictured and popularly known amongst collectors... including diaper, belly band, undershirts, and booties.
The trunk itself is the most PERFECT one I have had for this size... immaculately clean, intact, and with just one stain at one side back corner. The organdy pad is crisp and unfaded, with just a small bit of light staining at one end... someone miss a diaper change?
Don't miss out on this truly rare size Dy-Dee Kin ready to join your nursery and play.
Note: dress shown on right displayed in the trunk in the back (white with flowers) is no longer included with this set. Also shown partially in the close-up pictures of her head.
