RARE Vintage Effanbee Mold 3 Dy-Dee 15" Baby Doll MINT in Box
Earliest Mold 3 issue retains soft rubber inset ears -- has tear 'holes' for crying
Adorable ~ Rare ~ MINT ~ Dy-Dee Jane is the hard to find Mold 3 baby with tear holes at the inner eyes so she can CRY REAL TEARS much like her friends Tiny Tears and Betsy Wetsy. This newly designed sweetheart has a perfect rubber body that is soft and retains its original light color. The Mold 3 dolls retained Effanbee's popular 'soft rubber ears' feature*. Beautiful BLUE eyes peek out from a high color GORGEOUS face with all painted features intact. Her auburn painted hair is nearly perfect, with just a couple of small light marks. Eyes open and close perfectly. Such a beautiful and PERFECT baby girl.
NOTE: my last photo shows this lovely baby dressed in an original Mold 2 / Mold 3 Dy-Dee layette dress set, which is not included in this sale, but available for separate purchase in another listing, among others. THIS HIGH COLOR DY-DEE gives the 'IT FACTOR' when she is lovingly dressed in beautiful clothes~

I have added a cute little heart-shaped rattle that is 'just her size' and will include a NICE pair of booties for her, as they appear to be the single item that was not included in this set.
Dy-Dee Jane's retail box is sturdy and holds baby and her layette for a lovely display. The bottom of one corner has detached, but I have since repaired that to hold together nicely. It does have a lid, but the sides are all missing but for one. Please ask for photos if needed, of course.
*The ears are intact and still soft... I forgot to clean them before photos, but will do so before sending her out to her new home.
