Early vintage 1950's Ideal Toy Co 12" 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 the same vintage and next size larger 14" size 1950's Betsy Wetsy made of hard plastic, which Ideal Toy Co. introduced first in the doll industry in 1949. 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... Don't forget... Tiny Tears and Betsy Wetsy were "BFF's" -- Best Friends Forever -- and just like us when we were young, they 'traded' their clothes to 'stretch' their wardrobes because they were the same size. When you have a Tiny and a Betsy they will like to do the same, don't you think?
This lovely little girl is the hard to find 1950 to 1955 issue Molded Hair Betsy Wetsy. She is is excellent condition with a high color face, and immaculate vinyl body. Her lovely eyes open and close perfectly, and all eyelashes are present, thick, full and even. She has a high color face and pretty brown molded curls with a modicum of gently wear. As appropriate, she is marked correctly on the nape of her neck: 12 / Ideal Doll / Made in U.S.A. and her back is marked Ideal 12. Her 5-part vinyl body is clean and without marks; give her a healthy squeeze and she squeaks loudly in protest.
Little Betsy Wetsy comes to you dressed ALL ORIGINAL with her white cotton flannel diaper, undershirt, slip and white cotton party dress with matching bonnet, and slip. She wears her original pink with white trim knit booties. Her original rosebud print flannel robe is included as well... great for after bathtime.
I have included her original Ideal 1950s Betsy Wetsy glass nursing bottle, copy of her original hang tag and 'Mommy Letter' ~
