Here’s the original post I made about my favorite pair of ugly baby dolls, My Favorite Childhood Dolls.
Well, in trying to help someone locate information about their own childhood doll, I ran across some pictures of just what I’ve been looking for on the Antique Dolls Collectors Online Advisors, a research site I can definitely recommend to anyone trying to locate a vintage or collectible doll.
I remember them as being so ugly they were cute, and boy, was I right!!
I’ve since searched the Internet and can’t find any for sale anywhere, but I’ll certainly be on the lookout, now that I know that Horsman made them in 1949, and most importantly, their NAME, Squalling Babies!!
Does anyone remember these dolls? Horsman made a reproduction of them in 1980, so some of you “young whippersnappers” may remember those. If anyone runs across the original doll for sale, I sure would appreciate a heads up!

I have recently decided that my dolls were NOT made by Horsman, but by Lastic Plastic Fleischaker Co. in 1948.
