Description of Doll for Sale

This is a cute example of a vintage Madame Alexander Little Genius doll made in 1959 - 1962.  The Little Genius doll was Madame Alexanders small (8 inch) drink and wet baby doll.  Little Genius dolls have short caracul wigs with baby like hair instead of the long adult styled wigs seen on Cissette and the other Alexander-kins. She has an all vinyl body and head with sleep eyes. 

She comes with his original box which is marked as model 100.  The number 100 Little Genius was sold as a plain baby with just a pair of lace edged panties.  Madame Alexander sold a number of additional outfits for Little Genius.  The sweater and socks are factory made and are most likely part of one of the additional outfits.  It is unmarked as were most of Madame Alexander's add on outfits.  The outfit which consists of a pink shirt and shorts with ivory trim topped off with a felt beret are hand made probably from a Ginny pattern.  The outfit is very well done with lots of hand stitching.  Under the pink shorts Little Genus has the original lace trimmed panties that came with her from the Alexander factory.  Little genius is wearing a pair of Ginny vinyl shoes and knit socks that possibly came with the sweater. 


The doll is unmarked.  In this era Madame Alexander made some of the smaller dolls unmarked so they could sell them to other companies to use in their products.  Madame Alexander usually did not tag the add on outfits they sold to go with Little Genius.
