DESCRIPTION OF HER RESTORATION.

She has been lightly sanded and her sanded body looks like soft skin.  and her walking mechanism is perfect after Dr. Hubby  took her completely apart and did his restoration magic.  He makes them walk like new again.  Perfect and quiet walker. 

She has not been painted except for her knees that Dr. Hubby blushed lightly and a light air brush blushing on her facial cheeks.  Her eye shadow is original with the right eye shadow either rubbed a bit or from the factory that way.  We want to leave as much original on her as possible. Her hands have their original blushing. 

Her crier is silenced  which is consistent with Saucy Walker Dolls of this age.  Rare to find a crier that works.  We shipped a doll to Australia recently that did not cry but she started crying after she made the long trip.  Go Figure!

Her hair is original and this doll, has her Banana Bangs in tact, no cutting. We have seen Saucy Walkers by IDEAL that do have the shorter braids and I saw no evidence of a child's cutting the length on this doll at all and have had other Saucy Walker swith shorter braids as well..  We trimmed the ends of the braids.  

Her eyes so easily move from side to side.  The reason for this is that this doll and our last Saucy listing have the better eye mechanism in them.  The eye weight is a long bar and on each side are long white stems.  It is in fact those stems that are designed to allow the eyes to move more freely.  Most Saucy Walkers made later in the 50's did not have them.  We machine polished them, repaired them and as always before one of our Ideal Saucy Walker 22" dolls leaves here, we installed the preventative platforms to help prevent her eyes from rolling.  Personally, I am the only one who uses these particular preventative platforms since I invented them.  

Her eye lashes are beautiful and full. She will look in both directions but loves to look to the right a lot. With these dolls it depends on the 50 years worth of warping direction of the plastic neck plate.  The only way to correct that is to melt the plastic and we don't want to take a chance on that.  She looks adorable glancing to the right with her head tilted slightly anyway.  She will look forward for you if you balance her head just right and or her feet. on the doll stand.  

When you start to walk her, make sure her chin is tucked under her neck plate. The head is attached with a very strong elastic band and we like the heads to be poseable for display and not stiff like a soldier would look. Tucking the chin under the neck plate will keep her head from seeming loose.  Remember, it is a strong elastic band that holds it on...So no worry.  

The arms have also been re-strung with a thicker elastic cord tubing band.  You merely need to hold her by her hand to walk her. Dr. Hubby used a plastic compound to seal a small seam split under her right arm.  Small arm seam splits are to be expected on these dolls.

The doll has no sour odor that you get when a doll is sent to you that has not been restored.  It is the bands that carry the sour odors most of the time. 

Her vintage white vinyl shoes are by Fairyland.  Her socks are replacement and stand up straight on her leg which is refreshing.  I love the lace socks on the Saucy Walker dolls but because we want this doll to reflect the 50's era, as they had no lace socks back then on the dolls, we went with the ones you see in the photos.

We added a new pair of lace socks and two new pairs of shoes on the side for you to choose from.  They are shown above in the photos.

The replica dress she is wearing and made by Lois is a similar replica of what so many of the Ideal Saucy Walkers wore and it has a white cotton attached slip like Ideal always added to their dresses.  The Added dress that we are included was also made by Lois at:  toniwear@aol.com.

We highly recommend that your Ideal Saucy Walker not be given to a child.  These dolls are old and should remain on display, after all they have gone through, they deserve a rest.  The Ideal Saucy Walker is gaining in value as the years pass and even the doll books are outdated on  their value.  So if you must give her away, give her to an adult family member who appreciates the value that these famous Baby Boomer dolls (as well as a walking doll that was copied by most all the companies in her time) have and will have.
