Pink Saturday

As stated in a previous blog, I'm doing a doll theme for Pink Saturday. Here are a few of my "pink" dolls~~~some are vintage and some are not.
Here is photo of my beloved American Character Tiny Tears doll from the 1950's. I played with her quite a bit and she was my "baby" when I was a little girl. She is completely original except for her shoes.

This photo is of "Shea" dressed in a darling pinafore over a pink-striped dress. I bought Shea at a doll show and I love her coloring and open mouth.

This is my Vogue Ginny doll from the 1950's. I have several vintage Ginny dolls and my original Jill doll (Ginny's older sister). This Ginny is not a walker, but I do have two bent-knee walkers.

This is Meg from the Little Women. She is sitting on a tufted bench and she has her embroidery hoop and stitching in her hands. I have the other three Little Women dolls, but they are not dressed in pink.

This is a mini Jan Hagara doll that I bought at a doll show.

This is my very first walking doll from the 1950's. She is completely original except for her wig. I played with this doll quite a bit and she still walks and turns her head when prompted.
Thank you again, Beverly, for hosting another Pink Saturday. This is such a great group with so many wonderful photos to share.

Wow! These are just your pink dolls; you must have quite a collection. Thanks for sharing them with us, I didn't know there were so many collectible brands of dolls.

All the dolls are adorable. Happy pink day.

Sue Daly said...

Very cute vintage dolls. Happy Pink Saturday.

Mimi said...

Your Tiny Tears sure took me back...some really good memories. Unlike you, mine is a thing of the past. Whenever I outgrew a toy my mom donated it to the church nursery. A good cause, but I WANT MY TINY TEARS!

Angie said...

Oh, what pretty dolls! I think my fave is the tiny wonderful that you still have her! Happy Pink Saturday!

Beverly said...

Oh my gosh, Loretta. I started crying when I saw Tiny Tears. I had that exact same baby. I kept mine until last year. Her arms and legs dry rotted, and she just came apart. I cried.

Thank you for sharing that memory. Happy Pink Saturday.

I still have my Ginny doll, too.

I have that Tiny Tears doll! She was my baby too! That and my Suzy doll - not sure who she "originally" was but to me she was Suzy. What a fun collection.

Happy Pink Saturday!

What a great collection of dolls...I wish I had saved mine from childhood!

Kathleen said...

I just love your dolls. I also had a tiny tears doll, and a Ginny doll. Mine are long gone, and oh how I wish I had still them. Thanks for giving me a nostalgic rush, and Happy Pink Saturday!
