It is so enjoyable to get a peek into the past by looking at old photos.

CHILDHOOD DOLL PHOTOS - PAGE ELEVEN

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Charlotte and sister, Faye, proudly pose with their "twin" dolls.  Photo circa 1944/45.  Not sure who these sweet faced dollies are but they appear to be typical mama-dolls made of composition with mohair wigs.  I'm guessing they may have had cloth bodies.  Melinda (daughter of Faye in photo) does not know what happened to these two dolls but would love to find a doll like these as a keepsake.  Does anyone have an idea of who might have made them?

Found this precious photo in an antique shop.  No details on the back.  From the way this baby girl is dressed, (she is wearing spats!), it must be very early 1900s.  It is difficult to see the details of her dolly but it appears that it could be a bisque head doll from either France or Germany.  Wish I knew more.

Try as I may, I cannot get this photo any clearer, but these sisters are celebrating a successful 1956 Christmas with two new American Character Tiny Tears dolls (hard plastic head with molded rubber bodies/palms down).  (The doll case in the background holds Tiny's dress on hanger.)

Not only are the sisters above growing up in this Christmas photo dated 1957, but their dolly preferences are growing up, as well.  Gone are the baby dolls of prior years and now the sisters delight in a pair of Uneeda Dollikin fashion dolls.

Lori got a "new sister" when she received this beautiful Ideal Penny Play Pal doll for Christmas in 1960.

Looks like Grandpa is holding three Tiny Chatty Baby dolls by Mattel. Oops!... No, there's just two, the sweetie in the middle is real!  Photo taken in 1964.

As my daughter, April (5 mos.), stares at her first Christmas tree's shining lights and ornaments, Christmas 1977, two dolls peek out from their boxes behind her.  One I recognize as Hasbro's "Annabelle" rag doll, but the other is unidentifiable to me.  I can read part of the top of the box.  It says "Softest" but the rest is hidden by the tree.  Neither of these dolls became "memorable" in our household.  Both are long gone.

Perhaps you have a treasured photo of yourself, or a loved one, with a childhood doll,  that you would like to include on this page.  It could even be a photo of an unidentified child that you stumbled across in an antique mall, like some that I've included.  What is important is that there be a doll in the shot and it be somewhat vintage.   If you have a CLEAR photo that you would like to add to the page, email me to get instructions on sending it.
