Lesney "Chubbie" Ginny

Along with Lesney's re-styled "skinny" Ginny in the mid 70s the company also produced a "chubbier" costumed version, similar to the Tonka dolls. They too represented various countries but these dolls had painted eyes. Today she is often referred to as the "Lesney Chubby" Ginny.  Some of the costumes were a bit skimpily made but these dolls do have a sweetness to them.  The hardest to find of this grouping are the American Pioneer and the Jamacian Girl because they were only produced for one year.

"American Pioneer Ginny"

According to some publications she is considered rare because of her limited availability.  As an American, she depicts our pioneer period, our "wild west" days.

"Italian Ginny"

It is always fun to collect at least the ethnic dolls of your own ancestors. In my case though, I would have to practically buy them all (Heinz 57). Though I am not Italian at all, my kids have a strong Italian background from my husband's family so I wanted to have this sweet little Italian girl.
