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 very nice example of the same doll. She comes wearing her floral dress with matching bonnet. French Val lace, and ric-rac trim offset the bodice and wide-brim bonnet.


I have included a nice vintage nursing bottle to make a great display. She wears a more recent vintage whimsical diaper.


This lovely baby has light playwear and required a bath from years of sitting on a shelf in a closet. I did not launder her dress and bonnet but pressed it lightly. Baby herself has gently rubs to her brown molded hair and a very, very light rub to her right cheek. Her face still has the matte finish to the paint; her eyes open and close as they should without receding as they have classically been know to do on this issue doll, and all eyelashes are present, thick, full and even. She has a high color face and brown molded curls. 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 original pink-and-white booties are original and I note one needs a small repair, which I will do prior to shipping... just didn't see it before photographing.


Not one of my perfect babies, but one of "Katie's Little Orphans" in excellent display (and play) condition.


Bring back your own childhood memories of playtime with Betsy once again!
