This baby is a Mold 1 -- 15" Dy-Dee for those of you who follow the different factory issue dolls. Issued in the early half of the 1930s -- she has a near MINT classic rubber body; deep chocolate brown molded curls with NO rubs; high color blushed facial features, and stunning blue glassine eyes with bright whites -- she looks like a 'real baby'... those innocent eyes!




She has a GORGEOUS head -- Beautifully painted features create an almost ethereal effect to her countenance.


For those of you who are new to Dy-Dee, she is a marvelous WONDER DOLL. She can drink and wet like many baby dolls, but when she wets the special valve system inside allows the moisture to leak out slowly from her backside opening just like a real baby. She is VERY HEAVILY weighted to feel like a real baby in your arms, too. Another unique feature is that you can turn her head to the side with her eyes open, and when you go to lay her down her eyes stay open. Alternatively, you can close her eyes and turn her head to keep them closed even when she is held upright. She loves to be bathed. Her special jointed system prevents water from getting inside her when bathing -- just an all-round AMAZING doll. Any little girl would be happy with a Dy-Dee of her own, how about you?


Dy-Dee has a beautiful head and body... nothing like the 'squeaky' sound a Dy-Dee doll's rubber joints emit when moved. These are TIGHT and pose well -- her rubber is in nearly MINT condition with no perceived flaws -- she has beautiful, skin tone, and still firm and strong (and supple!). NO dryness at all -- PERFECT fingers and toes. Simply beautiful, and classic Dy-Dee face with vivid BLUE eyes that have been replaced -- Her eyes work perfectly -- a full complement of beautiful full and thick, dark brush lashes are all there with no rubs on the lids. Captivating. 


Dy-Dee comes with her basic FACTORY ORIGINAL wardrobe -- ready for you to add your own layette to this BASIC BABY set. Her original layette includes: a birdseye weave cotton diaper, rayon undershirt (vest style that was so popular in that era), white cotton replaced slip, Signature Dy-Dee drop-seat pajamas, replaced white knit booties, and her Effanbee 'Red Heart' TAGGED white cotton lawn pleated dress with a "white-on-white" embroidered collar and original bonnet --


THIS is the same dress Dy-Dee wears while 'playing in the sandbox' that is featured the wonderful Dy-Dee book...




Dy-Dee's dress is in excellent condition with a commonly seen mend between the collar edges in the front, but done well and the pretty pink silk bow above it makes it seem all better! 


She comes with her Esmond "eiderdown" Blanket to snuggle up in.


MY LAST PHOTO shows Dy-Dee with her layette -- 


She is CALLING OUT TO YOU -- "Mama, won't you please bring me home?"


Dy-Dee's phone and lamby are NOT included with this purchase, but available separately.



A new baby... always a welcome gift!
