Here is a sweet 1955 23" Vinyl
Face IDEAL TOY CORP/ Saucy Walker with a vinyl
face. She was sent to us from Patsy, her new
Mommy. Patsy had always wanted a Saucy Walker
from the early years of childhood and recently managed
to find this one.
However as you can
see, whomever it was (we may never know), my heart
goes out to the lady who spent hours if not weeks,
creating crocheted arms for what might have been her
own childhood doll at one point. Because the
Saucy Walker doll parts cannot be bought in a parts
store, this poor lady had to do something for this
doll, so this method was all she had. She also
made a crocheted dress (Not here with us) to match the
arms so the arms would not appear as noticeable at a
glance as in the photo above.
Pearson, our well known seamstress has made an
adorable Polka dot (white and red) dress for this baby
and we are adding the white vinyl shoes and identical
replica socks from Spain that the Saucy Walker dolls
were sold in.
Please do not fail to return
from time to time to see Updated restoration photos of
her in progress and eventually looking like new.
Thank you so much for your interest.
