RARE Vintage Effanbee Mold 3 Dy-Dee 20" Dy-Dee Louise Baby Doll MINT in Box


Includes original accessories and THREE outfits


Adorable ~ Rare ~ MINT ~ 20" Dy-Dee Lou 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 with original light and even tone. The Mold 3 dolls retained Effanbee's popular 'soft rubber ears' feature* and her ears are completely intact with no cracking or crazing.  Beautiful BLUE eyes peek out from a high color GORGEOUS face with all painted features intact -- NO RUBS. Her brown caracul (lanbswool) wig is perfect with no thinning or shedding. Her pretty eyes open and close perfectly. Such a beautiful and PERFECT baby girl.


THIS HIGH COLOR DY-DEE gives the 'IT FACTOR' when she is lovingly dressed in her beautiful clothes~


She arrives in her display suitcase style box with accessories -- doll and all her accessories are in unplayed with condition with some light storage wear. Included are:


  • RARE RARE "Welcoming" Announcement Card
  • RARE Dy-Dee BRACELET (needs restringing and I will do so before sending out if desired)
  • Paper GOLDEN HEART Hang Tag indicating her new feature where she cries tears
  • Faux 'Silver' Feeding Spoon -- not aluminum, but the more desirable 2nd issue 'pot metal'
  • Bubble Bath
  • Baby wipes -- soft round pink flannel 
  • Dy-Dee glass Nursing Bottle
  • Bubble Pipe with SOFT rubber tip 
  • Pacifier that SQUEAKS loudly when inserted in baby's mouth and her tummy is gently squeezed 
  • "What Every Young Mother Should Know" instructions for care and feeding your new baby 


Baby's original layette includes:


  • White birdseye weave diaper -- lovely updated issue of the more classic birdseye weave with rounded corners and 'no folding' design
  • White cotton knit undershirt
  • Pink flannel layette blanket
  • Pink-and-White gingham 3-piece Sunsuit, Coat/Dress, Sun Bonnet
  • Pink nylon plisse dress
  • Blue cotton print pajamas
  • White Oilcoth shoes and Blue stripe rayon socks
  • Pink 'Eiderdown' Bunting


The gingham sun suit set is adorable; set has never been laundered. The rare plisse dress is perfect and beaufiful but for a small mend at one shoulder seam, and one shorter blue waist ribbon. Her pajamas are 'dead mint' having never been worn or laundered and are PRISTINE; this style pajamas are rare to Dy-Dee's factory layette and are just gorgeous on her, complimenting her blue eyes.


Dy-Dee Lou's retail suitcase style box is sturdy and holds baby and her layette for a lovely display.
