This baby is a MINT in BOX Mold 3 -- 15" Dy-Dee for those of you who follow the different factory issue dolls. She is from the 1940s and she has a GORGEOUS red caracul wig -- she is in mint, unplayed with condition! Beautiful painted features are completely intact... outstanding. Face paint is FLAWLESS. All original... no touch ups or restorations of any kind.
For those of you who are new to Dy-Dee she is a marvelous WONDER DOLL. She can drink and wet like many baby dolls, but when she wets the special valve system inside allows the moisture to leak out slowly from her backside opening ust like a real baby. She is VERY HEAVILY weighted to feel like a real baby in your arms, too. Another unique feature is that you can turn her head to the side with her eyes open, and when you go to lay her down her eyes stay open. Alternatively, you can close her eyes and turn her head to keep them closed even when she is held upright. She BLOWS BUBBLES (her bubble pipe is included) and loves to be bathed. Her special jointed system prevents water from getting inside her when bathing -- just an all-round AMAZING doll. Any little girl would be happy with a Dy-Dee of her own, how about you?
Dy-Dee has an OUTSTANDING head and body... nothing like the 'squeaky' sound of a Dy-Dee doll's rubber joints emit when moved. These are tight and pose well -- her rubber is in EXCELLENT condition-- she has been cleaned and has beautiful, skin tone, and still firm and strong (and supple!) with only small signs of her age showing at all.
NOTE: If you would like photos of her body, front and back, please drop me a note and I'll send you links to them... already used up my 'quota' of 9 photos here.
Simply beautiful, and classic Dy-Dee face with those BIG eyes -- just perfect. Her eyes are EXTRA large as seen on these earlier Mold 3 dolls and work perfectly -- beautiful full and thick, jet black brush lashes are all there with no rubs on the lids. Captivating eyes in a captivating shade of BLUE.
Dy-Dee comes in her original FACTORY box, including the accessories insert on the inside of the lid, with original accessories as shown. She comes with FOUR original Dy-Dee Mold 3 outfits -- her original, 3-piece, pink cotton sun dress set -- dress with matching panties and extra-wide rimmed bonnet; Dy-Dee 'drop seat' flannel pj's with VERY RARE 'eiderdown' pink rayon robe -- complete with sash -- truly an amazing set; flocked print organdy dress and matching bonnet w/slip; blue-and-white gingham and dotted swiss dress -- all mold 3 Dy-Dee original outfits. The gingham dress is a really unusual factory Dy-Dee dress, in a classic late 1940s style -- mint condition... still crisp and clean with no wear noted anywhere. She is stunning in it, don't you think?
Included are her diaper and sleeveless undershirt, and a pair of handknit booties, as the original ones were lost from the set long ago. She brings her original Dy-Dee glass bottle (marked 'Dy-Dee') with intact rubber nipple -- so hard to find in good shape... still soft and supple -- gotta' have a nursing bottle so you can check out her 'stuff' when she arrives home!
Included is her RARE original hang tag announcing definitively she is Dy-Dee Jane (name for the 15" doll). Wonderful provenance and an asset to assure the value of your doll.
My photos are excellent and show off her lovely outfits Everything fits perfectly on her. So annoying when you purchase a doll and find her wardrobe that was shown with her does not actually all fit -- never find that here in my auctions.
Don't know what else to say about this wonderful doll, except that you won't be disappointed and you will fall in love.
BONUS: I will include a photoCOPY of Dy-Dee's ORIGINAL instruction booklet illustrating her many unique features.
