This is one of several sizes made of this most highly sought after baby doll -- especially at this time of year! This is the FAMOUS Ideal baby doll who Natalie Wood cuddled in the movie -- The Miracle on 34th Street. All of us grew up watching this film and came away with "I Believe" no matter what age we were at the time. A warm reminder that our pure, childhood thoughts and dreams are worthwhile.
This is a GORGEOUS Baby!
These dolls were made by Ideal Toy Co and marketed under the name "Baby Beautiful". They came in a wide range of sizes as well as with brown eyes or blue eyes (this one). Baby Beautiful is GORGEOUS in her equally gorgeous ORIGINAL baby pink cotton organza dress, original slip, pantaloons and matching bonnet. Nearly mint set -- bonnet has a small stain on the back is all to mention. She wears her original oilcloth shoes and silk socks with a pink stripe.
I have added a BREATHTAKING MOLLY'ES baby pink SILK coat and bonnet -- the silk is still strong (not fragile). The coat and bonnet set is in excellent minty condition. Baby herself is in MINT CONDITION having been fully restored. Lovely BLUE eyes open and close perfectly. Her body is strong and intact and mint condition with a nonworking crier. These dolls are very hard to find in this condition in any size... she is anb "I Believe Dream Come True" baby.
Lamby toy not included.
PERFECT GIFT for a Special "Someone" this holiday season~
