Description of Doll for Sale

I am pleased to present a beautiful example of a vintage 14 inch Betsy McCall doll made in 1951- 1953 by Ideal.  This is the first Betsy McCall doll made.  Many other companies made Betsy McCall dolls in various mostly smaller sizes and it is still in production today. Ideal made the doll for the McCall corporation using their existing hard plastic body from the Toni doll and a custom vinyl head. 

Betsy is all original and wears the pink version of the classic Betsy McCall dirndl inspired dress.  Betsy also has her original matching panties, shoes and socks.
