 RESTORATION DESCRIPTION AT BOTTOM OF PAGE

Description From Sheryl Of Her Restoration

This 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 for display.

Her 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.

Her 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 close.

Her Designer Replica Dress has been made by Lois Pearson,  toniwear@aol.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.  

Her 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:

Our 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.

We 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 see our new site at:  http://saucywalkerdollhospital.com

Each of our repair dolls under our Package "A" will have her own web page so you can follow along with her restoration progress.  You can find many that we working on or recently repaired under our BEFORE AND AFTER sections on the front page or our previous restorations as well on our Doll Hospital page.
