Hello, This is a vintage 1962 21-in Ideal Thumbelina doll that has holes on the back of her head for a speaker and was originally a crier. She also has a hole in each ear for the crying mechanism.
She no longer works and is in a very rough state. The blue shorts were on her and are of the period but I do not think they are original. She does not have any other clothing.
There is soiling on the cloth legs of the body.
Her head rattles when moved and the mechanism inside is broken. Both pinkies are damaged on her fingers, please see picture above. One is almost completely off and the other is disigured and might come off easily. The big toe on the left foot is also damaged.
She has a tear/hole under her left arm. There is a split in the seam in the crotch area.
Her hair has reasonable thickness but needs to be restyled and the bangs do not lay flat. The bangs may have been cut or just need to be restyled.
The right hand has damage. The tip of the pinky is broken off, the middle finger is worn, the index finger has damage, the thumb is worn. The left hand has damage to the thumb and pinky.
She is being sold as is, as found.
