Shari Lewis was a popular children's television star in the late fifties, and her popularity, along with that of her puppet, Lambchop, continues today, despite her untimely death in 1998.
This is an unusual doll for Alexander in that it was made with an entirely new head mold, which was never re-used. She was made with the one-piece graceful arms used on the later Cissys. The doll came in six different outfits, all available in 14" or 21" sizes. Her wrist tag featured a photo of Shari and Lambchop.
