Here is a 16.5" hard plastic 1950's walker with "160" on her neck. She may be LuAnn Simms by Roberta Doll Co. LuAnn was a singer, and one of her recordings is "Little Rag Doll." The 1915-1922 compo on the right is 15" Effanbee's "Baby Dainty," all original,complete with skates. Her body is cloth. They are both all original and in wonderful condition; dolls like this hold their value.

Effanbee's Patsy dolls were a hit in the 1920's and 1930's, and many other companies tried to copy her looks without getting too close in order to avoid a lawsuit. This resulted in many other cute dolls representing this time period for collectors to enjoy today. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this program on often overlooked dolls.
