Lisa is still looking for this doll in PINK after all these years. And now, thanks to one of our Fabulous Finders, we have a good photo, and we know that she played Rock a Bye Baby.
[pinit] I am looking for a doll from my childhood. I had it when I was 9, and it was THE only doll I ever loved. I lost it when my family was on a vacation here in Canada and never saw it again – or anything like it!
From what I remember of it here’s the best description I can give:
She was cloth, circa late 1960/early 70’s I think, and she had yellow yarn for hair, wore a pink and white gingham checkered dress (same style as a Holly Hobbie doll) but with the non-HH face – more of the big round eyes – almost kewpie-like). She was anywhere from 12”+ AND HERE’S THE MAIN THING I REMEMBER: She had a musical wind up in her back and she played a soft lullaby (I can’t really remember the song(s)..
I would do ANYTHING to find her. I KNOW she wasn’t the only one made, but it sure feels like it. I’ve seen close to her but nothing..I would LOVE to have her again, to keep and pass along to my daughter…
IF you find it in your heart – PLEASE pass this post along to any collector, or anyone who can maybe direct me to a location to find her. It sounds silly but, it’s almost like looking for a lost child – or a lost piece of my childhood, really. If you know where I might find her, please let me know! I’ve already searched through eBay…
Sincerest gratitude for your time!
