VERY RARE 1940s Effanbee 10" Composition Patsy Babykin Magnetic Hands Doll -- Toddler straight legs version.
DARLING ORIGINAL DRESS, BONNET and SLIP -- FOURTH of JULY THEME with her VINTAGE American Flag with the CORRECT 48-Star flag.
NEAR MINT CONDITION in original 'July 4th' outfit with Magnetic Hands that hold her toys.
This super rare Patsy Babykin will be a most welcome addition to any Patsy Family doll collection. This special edition of the 1940s all composition Patsy Babykin has magnets imbedded into the palm of her hands. This allows toys with metal attachments to be held by Babykin -- Super Fun!
Patsy Babykin wears her original layette factory dress by Effanbee -- lovely red stripes interspersed with blue roses on a light organdy fabric background. A matching wide-brimmed bonnet shades her eyes from the effects of the sun... beautiful blue eyes they are, too!
Her face is MINT with no paint wear, NO RUBS and perfect composition. She has blue eyes with full, thick and even brush lashes, and ALL painted facial features are intact. Her cheeks glow with a healthy blush.
ALL ORIGINAL Doll with NO RESTORATIONS wearing her original dress set.
Babykin is in near mint condition. Her body is COMPLETELY CRAZE FREE.... not one craze line, no cracks, no wear except a single chip in tthe composition on the top of her big toe -- otherwise a PERFECT composition body that is ALL ORIGINAL. I have color matched it and sealed it the chip on her toe to ensure this nearly perfect baby is ready to enjoy for another 80 years. Her beautiful dark brown molded curls have seen some light rubs.
Although these are not her original factory toys -- I made them by adding metal washers to each so as to adhere to the magnets in her hands -- they are similar. For many years it was impossible to know what toys these little dolls came with from the factory, as they were always separated and lost over the near 80 years gone by now. However, I have now seen the original card with the toys attached that came in the box with Babykin when she was 'born' I will include a copy of it with this purchase.
Her four toys include:
- American Flag
- Bell Rattle
- Shaker Rattle
- Wooden Duckling
