15" Brunette Effanbee Dy-Dee 1937 Mold 1 -- Curated From my Own Personal Collection




Gorgeous 15" Brunette Dy-Dee in the Mold 1 issue -- an early issue, this baby has a FLAWLESS FACE and MOLDED CURLS... simply amazing.


Baby comes with all you see in my photos -- a full layette and all in mint to near mint condition. Dy-Dee herself has a near perfect, soft, even-toned body with no dryness and all fingers and toes are there to be counted ... "Little Piggy", anyone? Her joints are firm and she can easily be posed.


Captivating brown glassene eyes open and close properly, and are framed with her natural lighter brown brush lashes; full and even. The detail of her head shows her distinctly molded curls. The hair color is softly painted to enhance the sense of a very young baby. All painted facial features are well-defined and intact... including her pretty brunette eyebrows, that are almost always rubbed off either fully or partially.


Dy-Dee comes with a FULL ORIGINAL LAYETTE exactly as pictured in the accompanying copy of an original advertisement for this baby in 1937. Everything pictured comes home with her, and all clothing and accessories are in mint to near mint condition. Bonnet to the coat set has a small area of separation at the brim's top layer only.


The trunk is in near mint condition with no staining and completely intact -- including its immaculately clean, crisp pink organdy ruffled pad. Even the 'shelf' still sits in its proper place when inserted into the trunk -- Baby sits happily on it making a FABULOUS display.
