Effanbee PATSY 20" Reproduction Doll, NRFB-Vintage Dress Included-Tonner OOP
Patsy dolls are arguably the second best-known doll to come out of the composition doll era, second perhaps only to Shirley Temple dolls. This reproduction is rare in its size (20") and availability. Most Patsy dolls are available in smaller sizes and come with outfits. This doll comes nude, so you can dress her and sew clothing for her. I am including one vintage dress (40's-50's) made of a soft lawn fabric (see-through cotton). The dress is in the Patsy style and ties in the back of the neck. I'm also including a "onesie" piece of underwear that Patsy typically wore. I didn't want to remove her from the box to dress her, but you can see how well this dress will look on her.
All Patsy and Patsy family dolls were made incomposition through the 1940s. Nearly all reproductions made from the 1980s on have been in vinyl, sometimes made to resemble the look and feel of composition. Most Effanbee dolls have molded hair, but some had wigs over that in the 1930s, and Tonner Dolls has produced Patsy family dolls with actual hair (not molded) as well.
Tonner Dolls purchased Effanbee Dolls out of bankruptcy in 2002 and has produced many Patsy and Patsy Family dolls; the dolls are high-quality reproductions made in hard vinyl. Although Patsy dolls are not currently in production at Tonner Dolls, they retain the license to produce them.
