FOUND! – MY Favorite Childhood Dolls FOUND, Well Almost… — 9 Comments

  1. HA!! LOL!! I’m not going to disagree with you, Jonathan, based on these pictures, but I promise you, I loved them dearly. They looked and felt SO REAL!

    These were some of the first vinyl dolls with realistic feeling skin, not hard like regular plastic, composition, or bisque head dolls that were common before this time.

  2. Gee I should take a look at my nan’s doll collection. She’s been collecting them since she was a young girl and she’s got dolls that are 50 years and older.

    I’ll have a look to see if she has any of these ‘ugly dolls’ in your post.


  3. Thanks, Deb! I’d appreciate your taking the time to look. I’m sure my memory of them is better than the reality, but I’d still like to have one, ya know?

  4. There is a squalling baby on eBay.

    Vintage 1949 Horsman SQUALLING BABY Doll Crying Yawning


  5. Gee I had one I believe was the 1949 orginal.
    I loved it so but some of my kid friends stole
    the head off of it. Now it just not the same. I wish I could find another one!!! I’m so sad

  6. I just listed a 1948 Lastic Plastic Squalling Baby Doll, Fleischaker Character Vinyl & Cloth – 300626995612 on eBay:

  7. Both Ideal and Horsman had one of these. Ideal called it blessed event. We had one we called Booger.
