I AM FINDING THAT IT IS TIME TO DOWN-SIZE MANY OF THE ITEMS IN MY HUGE BETSY MCCALL COLLECTION THAT I STARTED IN THE LATE 1980S—OR MAYBE YOU COULD SAY, IN 1960 WITH MY FIRST 8” BETSY DOLL…
In 1964, the McCall’s magazine introduced a new 11 ½ inch preteen type Betsy McCall doll. The McCall’s Corporation used their popular Betsy paper dolls and dolls to advertise little girls’ dresses, McCall’s patterns, children’s plates, dolls, etc. In that fashion, the McCall’s Corporations used these records to advertise their new doll in 1964.
Each 33 ½ rpm record shows that they were created by ‘Canadian American Records, Ltd.’ and copyrighted by ‘McCall Corp.’ The description on the back of each album begins with: “Now, America’s favorite young lady, Betsy McCall, who appears every month in McCall’s Magazine, visits your child through this record.”
BETSY MCCALL 33 1/3 RECORD; B.M.’S SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY (#BM-101)
A portion of the description on the back states: “For children, there’s nothing more fun than a surprise birthday party. This new album lets your child visit Betsy at hers….It is filled with games, songs and stories your child will love.”
The album cover shows wear on the corners and edges and parts of the top and bottom edge have split open. The paper sleeve to protect the record is still present. Though I see light scratches on this record, I have TESTED THIS RECORD on my record player and there are no skips or problems with the way it plays.
BETSY MCCALL 33 1/3 RECORD; B.M. GOES TO SCHOOL (#BM-102)
A portion of the description on the back states: “This delightfully entertaining and informative album is designed to acquaint your child with that most important event of all, going to school! Every child wonders about school: What’s it like? Will it be fun? This album, actually tested in class rooms, is an attempt to help your child gain confidence as she looks forward to the wonderful days of school. Betsy McCall takes your child step by step through the school day: from the moment she enters the school bus, through the games and lessons of a typical school session, to the time when she comes home.”
The album cover shows wear on the corners and edges and also a tear and missing corners on the paper portion of the back of the cover. _The paper sleeve to protect the record is missing._ Though I see light scratches on this record, I have TESTED THIS RECORD on my record player and there are no skips or problems with the way it plays.
BETSY MCCALL 33 1/3 RECORD; B.M. TELLS BEDTIME STORIES (#BM-103)
This is a very RARE example of Betsy’s Tells Bedtime Stories’ album because it’s original plastic covered packaging has Not Been Opened, therefore, it is in Near Mint condition. A portion of the description on the back states: “Here’s a delightful way for your child to prepare for bedtime. Betsy is your storyteller for her favorite fairytales. We’re sure that they’re your favorites, too.” The plastic covering on the bottom two corners have opened just a little, so the cover underneath is slightly worn—I don’t see any other damage to the plastic covering.

In my opinion, this collectable Betsy records will make excellent additions to your collection—just as they did for me.
