Not all, but most of my favorites.
Hiya there- thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!! I sure do!!! They are called ‘Baby Dear’ sculpted by Eloise Wilkin and produced by Vogue.
I’m not sure about crying- I have never seen any one selling them mention that. Neither of the two I have cry. However, I will say that I noticed one had broken pieces inside of her that were all smashed up. I researched and found out it was an old school crying mechanism…however, not sure if someone put it in there or if she originally came like that.
It’s quite the mystery!
They’re beautiful! I love vintage baby dolls!
You have a nice collection there.
@Kimberly You’re very welcome!! Glad I could help. Hope you are able to find one soon! They’re on the expensive side but if you’ve got a keen eye you can catch a deal sometimes, especially if you find one that’s unlisted- that’s how I found mine! Good luck and happy hunting!
Thank you, Amy, good to see you! Me, too- they’re so special. I love anything with some history behind it.
Thank you, Stephanie! I think it’s cool you’ve got the books- I’ve wanted them but just have not gotten around to buying any. You should definitely get a Baby Dear when you get the chance. Love their chubbiness. @Stephie
I still have my Baby Dear One dolls from when I was a child. They are very well loved!
I absolutely love the vintage dolls. I tried to buy an old Thumbelina doll on EBay once and the bid got too high for me. You have an awesome collection!! Is that Baby Dear?
WOW! You’ve got a wonderful collection!
Awesome dollys! I love them. I have some vintage dollys too. Some were “rescued” after a auction from going in the dumpster.
@Meandmydollie Wow!! How neat is that??! I feel so bad for my mother- she has no dolls from her childhood and she really wishes she still had the Mrs. Beasley she had as a kid.
@CindyLouWho Hey, Cindy, it sure is!! Great eye!
@kareninflorida So nice to see you around, Karen! Thank you!!
@sweet95kitty Thank you!! Some of the best dolls are rescues, you know!!
Awww. I remember Mrs. Beasley. I didn’t have one, but I certainly loved watching Family Affair when I was little. My mother had a Shirley Temple doll when she was little. She played with her, but when she stopped playing with her, her mother gave her away! Isn’t that awful?
That’s so fabulous! Thanks for sharing!
Love them! Especially the group in the first pic. Thanks for sharing:)
Wow, saw your photo and am speechless! Wow, my poor Dusty dolls are scattered or in boxes. My babies from childhood dry rotted after being put in a storage shed. My mom broke her baby when she was 82. Both of us were devastated. I saved my girls’ dolls even if they don’t want them! Hopefully I can get my room set up soon!
Thankfully, my son moved out and I took over his room!! I told him he could sleep on the pull out in the living room if he came to visit!!! lol
