Description From Sheryl Of Her Restoration
is a 1950's Saucy Walker 22" Doll by: IDEAL Toy
Corp. She has unusually thick uncut bangs and is one of
three dolls we have ever seen with the curls in the bangs.
Read below for more information.
walking mechanism was taken apart by Dr. Hubby and works
perfectly. Simply hold her hand while walking her. Her head
turns when she takes each step. She has been lightly sanded
and her hands and knees air brushed with blushing.
eyes have been polished by our machine and very
delicately. We have added Teflon balls to the eye mechanism
to make them move easily across the preventative platforms that
we have installed to help safe guard her eyes from rolling or
crossing. As we have said, we do not guarantee anything
regarding the eyes as they are perfect now and proof is in the
photos below... but once she is in others care we do not know
how she will be handled. We accidentally dropped our own
doll pretty hard on her head on a concrete floor and the eyes
did not have one lil problem at all and you can imagine how
happy we were about that. So glad that we invented this
technique. Her gorgeous lashes are full.
have had only three dolls in all these years and in a row lately
that have the thick bangs as this one does. We feel that IDEAL
had no set rules on testing the market with different looks from
time to time. This Doll today that we are listing has
bangs too thick for banana bangs if they were as long as the
banana bangs usually are. When we got her the bangs had the
original curls but were relaxed too much from 50 years of
storage. So we shampooed the hair and refreshed the
curls. Her hair bows are double sided satin and we have
stiffened them for display.
is a doll directly below that we sold that was our number one of
the three...instead of the curls we decided to brush them out
and wow, we should have left the bangs as she came to us in her
original hairdo. This dolls original bangs (before we
brushed them out) were exactly like we have styled the one we
are listing on this page today. This is a rare Saucy
Walker and we have a Blonde number three doll yet to list with
the same thick uncut bangs
From Judith Izen's Third Edition IDEAL DOLL Book:
Showing A Saucy Walker With Thick Bangs And Curls.
Below is the First of three with the same type
And Here is our blonde
(number three below) as we got her and before we had even begun
the restoration. Her eyes will being polished and the
platforms installed later along with all the rest. We have
already washed her hair and re-curled her bangs. This
photo was taken before we did all of that. Her hair had never
been taken down by a child and in this photo she has the
original rubber bands and hair-do set from the factory and looks
exactly like the doll we are listing today had looked (except
different hair color).

replica styled dress on the doll we are listing today with the IDEAL type
attached slip and Onesie was made by Lois Pearson (firstname.lastname@example.org) This
is a common look for a Saucy Walker and Lois is wonderful at
making them so gorgeous. Lois has also put her tag on the
dresses she makes for us.
shoes she is wearing were quite expensive but well worth it
because they look nearly new for being 50ish years old.
They have IDEAL molded on the bottom of each shoe. Her
socks are replacement.
Kaiser Doll stand is included along with her replica hang tag.
Her lil Raggedy Andy doll is a compliment from Lois Pearson who
knows we love to have little cloth dolls for the Saucy Walker's
to hold on display.
Whomever it is to take her home will see that she is an adorable
doll and needs to be loved and cherished.
you so much for your interest.
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 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, crossing, 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.
