1967 Newborn Thumbelina

Not long ago our daughter Elaine, shown here at age 4 with her father, came home for a visit and sorted out her childhood dolls. Newborn Thumbelina, a 9.5 in. 1967 vinyl doll by Ideal was a favorite. A pull string in her foam filled body makes her wiggle and look alive. She is wearing her original outfit with others I made in the background.
