Description From Sheryl Of Her Restoration
is a 1950's Saucy Walker 22" Doll by: IDEAL Toy Corp.
She is in great shape and was when we got her, no cracks or seam
splits. Her crier is mute. She has a Monique replacement
wig on that can be set easily enough in braids or a pony tail. (http://monique.com)
When we purchased her from a very nice lady's collection, she
had the rare pitch black saran hair of which we have had only a
couple that have come through here. We tried our best to
save it but it was too thin and showed the scalp cap in a few
places. Her double sided satin bows have been stiffened
walking mechanism was taken completely apart by Dr. Hubby and works
perfectly. Her head turns when she takes each step.
She has not been airbrushed except for her knee and hand
blushing. Her facial make-up is original. Dr. Hubby has
lightly sanded her body to take off the aging and to give the
plastic a softer appearance.
eyes are still factory clamped in her head which ads value and
we have polished them along with adding our installed platforms to
keep the eyes from rolling or sinking, or crossing. After she leaves
here and because we have no idea how she will be handled, we do
not guarantee the platforms but we know the platforms work
perfectly from an accidental experience of our own on another
doll. This doll has the best set of eyes that IDEAL
made. We date her at 1952 because it was the Earlier Issue
doll in 1951 that had the long white stems as this doll
has. However, the dolls in 1951 had a rod connecting their
heads and this one has the band which is great for posing.
The stems rest on the platforms and swivel making the flirty
eyes move with ease from side to side as you also physically
lean her from side to side as she was designed by the factory to
do. The eyes open and
Designer Replica Dress has been made by Lois Pearson, email@example.com. The
dress is similar to the Sears ad we have on our front page and also has put button holes and
three buttons on the back of the dress. This dress has the
attached cotton slip which is another way to ID and IDEAL Saucy
Walker Dress that is vintage. Lois also made a ONESIE for
her. IDEAL also ID'd their
dresses by the buttons which were pinwheel buttons at that time.
This dress has white buttons but are not pinwheel.
white vinyl shoes are the vintage Fairyland shoes of the era and
her socks were purchased recently from Monique. (http://monique.com)
Just a Note From Sheryl:
pricing on the dolls we sell are as reasonable as we can make
them keeping in mind all the days and hours and top notch supplies it
takes to get the dolls like new. I say this because many
who might not know of our reputation may not take this into
consideration and somehow forget that we have had to also
purchase the doll as well and the quality Saucy Walker is getting more
expensive as the time passes. We are the only ones who
offer the things that we do such as our own invented eye
platforms to prevent the rolling and sinking of the eyes that
Saucy Walker dolls are so famous for doing after 50 years of
storage. A new doll stand has always been sent out with
each of our dolls and the replica hang tag that in time is
expensive as well. From our site we also offer Lay-a-way on many
of them and/or the Hold Doll option.
do not have Saucy Walker dolls for sale very often and when we
do they sell fast however, we do not make a big enough profit to
cover the time it takes to make the dolls like new and because
the IDEAL Saucy Walker is gaining in value quickly, our cost for
the doll is rising higher with each passing month. We ask that
you consider this when you purchase your Saucy Walker elsewhere
and you find that she is not in the best condition, just
remember to contact us and we will be glad to assist you and do
all the work to make her the way you expected her to be. Please
