MINT 13" TINY TEARS doll -- 1950s in Original Layette Case


The classic and most popular size Tiny Tears we all grew up with and loved.


She is the mid-sized Tiny Tears made in the 1950s, measuring approx. 13.5" -- this is the baby Tiny Tears with the hands-down vinyl body and BLUE eyes. She was made circa 1956. This baby is NOT to be missed if you want to own a piece of doll history ... Her coloring is exquisite.


PRISTINE and STUNNING Tiny Tears Baby in her original fleur-de-lis design travel suitcase ~


I have collected Tiny Tears dolls for over 25 years and have had dozens of mint sets, but oh boy!!! This is the ONE of my favorites...


RARE -- this beautiful and HARD to FIND molded hair hair Tiny Tears doll baby has it all -- lovely PERFECT WITH NO RUBS molded hair is a rich reddish brown color -- COMPLETE set with Tiny Tears and all her lovely accessories.


This is the 13" vinyl body, hands down Tiny Tears with produced from 1956 in her original Deluxe suitcase, where the graphics remain a vivid pink with the classic fleur-de-lis print. Case is in excellent condition and is a convenient place to store baby and her lovely belongings.


Inside you find a MINT Tiny Tears with a hard plastic head and vinyl body. Her BRIGHT BLUE sleep eyes work perfectly -- thick, full and complete lashes, crystal clear eyes. GORGEOUS high color face with high cheek color blush -- all original facial paint -- and, of course -- there are no touchups or restorations of any kind.


Baby was removed carefully from her 'tethers' to examine her completely and ensure you she is PERFECT! Over the years I have purchased many mint-in-box Tiny Tears dolls only to find 'hidden' flaws on her body, head or hair that invite disappointment. I GUARANTEE this baby WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.


Her body is silky and shiny and has no marks, chews, stains or discolorations -- she makes a lovely, loud SQUEAK when you squeeze her body. Her molded hair is PERFECT with NO RUBS to the back at all.


Baby is dressed in her original Tiny Tears ROMPER, and comes with ALL of her original clothing and accessories:


  • Clothes pins
  • Rubber PACIFIER
  • BUBBLE PIPE with intact rubber tip,
  • Birdseye weave DIAPER and pins
  • PINK and WHITE Gingham DRESS with matching PANTIES
  • Blue wool felt coat and bonnet
  • pink knit BOOTIES
  • Signature Tiny Tears cotton romper
  • Glass nursing bottle with soft, pliable nipple
  • Tiny Tears personal cake of Ivory Soap
  • Tiny Tears signature KLEENEX brand tissues


This is a GREAT SET -- complete and in 'MINT' condition. Tiny's clothing -- dress, panties , coat, bonnet and romper are clean and in MINT and CRISP condition. The back of her romper is PERFECT -- with NO transferred spot from the cardboard box background that is so often unavoidable in these sets after sitting so many years. Bottle, pacifier and bubble pipe are PERFECT.


The blue wool felt ORIGINAL TINY TEARS Coat and Bonnet Set was issued in a limited series of suitcase sets and is very highly desired by collectors... especially in this RARE and PRISTINE condition.
This little baby has the PINKEST, SOFTEST most FLAWLESS and matte finish body I have ever seen... JUST AS IT WAS WHEN SHE WAS ON THE TOY STORE SHELF over 70 years ago now. It still has that 'powder finish' to the vinyl... a characteristic only an unplayed with doll will exhibit.


Bring home the BEST of the BEST.


Baby comes in her original fleur-de-lis suitcase that is in excellent condition. The cardboard insert that holds her clothing inside the lid still retains its original cellophane wrapping -- perfect --makes a wonderful display and place to keep baby safe.


A wonderful Tiny Tears doll and her complete layette!
