I only have one from my childhood. My Mom threw away all my dolls except for the Madame Alexander Miss Spain I managed to take with me when I got married. Some of the ones she threw away were very limited editions and a couple original barbie's. I no longer collect Barbie's. I know one doll I will never find no matter how long I search was my Aquametta Doll, she was large toddler sized and very, very limited edition.

She was a doll made by Aquanetta's husband Jack Ross who owned the largest Lincoln Mercury dealership in the West. She was in a couple movies in the 1960's I think. My Uncle Quentin was the service manager and would appear on TV with them and he and my Aunt Vera bought the doll for me. I got to go to the set sometimes and met her, she was very nice to me. I think there were very few made and I am not sure if any survived sadly. I am glad you found Kelly and Elly and hope you will find the Blonde Kelly as well.

:D What a lovely collection, Amy! They are all in such lovely shape. I love to see the older dolls. They bring back such fond memories. I have some of mine from the 50s and one from the early 60s. Thank you for taking the time to share them with all of us.

I have my Teenie Weenie Tiny Tears from the 60’s. She was my favorite baby.I received her for Christmas whenI was 3. I also have some Little Kiddles like the ones I had as a child, and. Newborn baby Tenderlove who was my last baby doll. I thought she was so realistic back then. I just didn’t know!
I have a Velvet doll. Chrissy’s friend. It was my daughters, given to her by her step Mom.
I fell for the old 50’s TinyTears so had to have some of those. LOL!

I have my first ever baby doll I got from my Gran when I was a year old. She is a 12" pedigree baby.....one of her big toes is flattened out where I used to nibble on her.
