SOLD Before She Was Listed

1952-1953 22" IDEAL Toy Corp Saucy Walker Doll  Which was requested by Emile Pandolfi for his beautiful sister for a Christmas surprise.  We took the order to restore this doll and had her in his sister's home before Christmas.

Emile reported that she was thrilled with her doll, reminding her of her childhood. He too remembers his sisters playing with their loved Saucy Walker Dolls so many years ago.

HISTORY OF THIS DOLL FROM HER ORIGINAL OWNER.

We lived in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, were 8-year-old  and received the dolls from our maternal grandmother, who lived in DuBois, PA. She had gone out herself (a rarity in and of itself, since she owned and worked at a local bar and grill 6 days a week!) and bought these two Saucy Walker walking dolls for us and mailed them along. Our parents placed them under the tree on Christmas morning in the mid-1950s and Diane recalls that her own eyes nearly popped out when she saw her gorgeous blond doll. She never had seen a doll so lovely and the fact that she could walk was pretty amazing, as was the fact that Grammy had selected and sent her. Also, we were doll-lovers and never dreamed that we'd have a doll like her.

She distinctly remembers walking her around the room and loving it. Together we played with our dolls often, always tucking them away in their original boxes for safe keeping.  One day those boxes just just fell apart. Some years later, Mom, who was an expert seamstress, made bridal outfits for each doll, a cape and a green velvet outfit too. Since we are identical twins and always received the same presents, Grammy chose the blond doll for Diane and the brunette for me, so we could tell them apart! Lord knows people could not tell us apart! These dolls remained with us after marriage, during several moves, and occasionally we permitted our daughters to play with them. Now we are at the age where we are down-sizing and thus decided to list the dolls together on EBay. It did not seem right to separate them!  

Diane and I are thrilled that they found such a wonderful eBay buyer who specializes in restoring unique Saucy Walker Dolls by IDEAL. May the next owner, Pam enjoy, treasure and delight in her blond beauty, as Diane has.

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 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.

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 or http://saucywalkersdollhospital.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.  

Those from our own site please note:  If you should have questions, feel free to contact us but please also read our Frequently Asked Questions page. Before you purchase her make sure you read our Refund Policy on our page linked below:
