Description From Sheryl Of Her Restoration
excited to finally get this Gorgeous doll available for a new
Mommy to love and cherish her. As you know she was
manufactured by IDEAL TOY CORP. She is 22" and she is
one of the famed Saucy Walker Dolls that were copied by so many
companies in the fifties. IDEAL sold more walking dolls
back then like her than any other company did at that time.
Dr. Hubby has taken her
apart and made sure her walking mechanism is working
perfectly. Merely hold her hand to walk her. Her arms
and head are strung with our surgical elastic cord tubing.
been sanded to being out the soft look to the plastic and her
hands and knees have been blushed. She looks nearly new.
He has also blushed her cheeks. Photos always makes the
blushing darker than it is in the real. Her original cheeks needed no
blushing at all until I began playing around with trying to take
two teenie tiny lil spots off her face and messed her gorgeous
blushing up. The little spots are gone though. She
almost looks like she did when new, he did a beautiful job.
She was well taken
care of before we received her.
Her crier is mute as
most 22" Saucy Walker Dolls by Ideal are after years of
storage and bath time with the the young mommies However, as I
have said before, there was another doll who's crier I said was
mute and when she was received by her new Mommy, she
cried. Have not figures that one out yet.
Her neck plate was not
warped like most all the dolls we have seen are. So her
head can be posed very well and with ease as the head slides
around on top of the neck plate. You can lift her head a
little to see how strong the band is that is holding her head
on. We use all surgical elastic cord tubing on our dolls.
No fear of wearing out. We suggest a spot of super glue on
the back of her neck plate if you want only the head to look
only straight forward and only to be moved by the movement of
her legs. We prefer the little girl look in display with
the head posed.
Her eyes have been
machine polished and her metal eye lids have been air brushed
with our special Saucy Blend paint. Her lashed are perfect
and full. Her eyes move freely from side to side as her
head is leaned or if you lean her entire body as they were
designed to do. I have installed the platforms that I invented
several years ago to prevent the sinking, crossing and rolling
of her eyes. Saucy Walker Dolls are known to have the wacky
eyes after 50 years. Possibly with the platforms inside
her head they will not ever roll again, but no guaranties on
that statement. We never know how the dolls we restore are
treated. The right eye has no problem except the platform which
the weights rest on tends to be higher and caused a tiny bit of
her metal eye lid to show. When I see that I merely put my
fingernail under the lashes and push it up. We have
adjusted the price for her with that in mind.
Her hair is original and
Gorgeous! We have cleaned it thoroughly. I have seen
a couple dolls with bangs like hers. They were in small
curls with the pins holding them in place. I di not think this
doll was intended to have the banana bangs. The bangs do
not appear to have been cut and the bangs are thicker than the
dolls with the banana bangs.

DOLL Book: Showing A Saucy Walker With Thick Bangs And
Her replica dress with attached
cotton slip and the three buttons and button holes in the back is fabulous and
made by our seamstress Lois
Pearson. She is rather famous now for her ability to
make such beautiful doll clothing and almost identical replica
clothing for all dolls. Make sure you see her web page by
clicking on her doll clothing links throughout our site.
On the side (Free of
charge) for those who love the older doll dresses, we are
adding an original IDEAL Toy Corp SW 22" Doll Dress with
attached slip to match an original ONESIE. Her bows are
double sided satin and stiffened for display. Her Shoes
are made also by IDEAL and her socks are replacement socks from
Spain. She also comes with a new Chubby waist Kaiser Doll
This is a Gorgeous doll and the
photos do her no justice. Make sure you read and look at
all the images and descriptions about her before you decide.
God Bless and thank you
for your interest.
Just an added 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 and 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
