Dolls with pastel hair colors, especially pink, were popular in the late 1950s. Schoen & Yondorf, under the trade name Sayco, jumped on the trend with this pretty toddler.
She is 15″ tall, with a soft vinyl head and arms on a blow molded vinyl torso and legs. She is jointed at the neck, shoulders and hips. She has rooted pink hair in curls, with a circlet braid on top and bangs. Her blue sleep eyes have brush lashes and painted lashes below. She has single stroke painted brown eyebrows and orange-red lips.
She is marked “©: SAYCO DOLL CORP.” on the back of her head.
This doll wears a pink satin strapless gown with attached stole and overskirt of nylon with a satiny floral design. She has bouquets of pink flowers at the hem of the overskirt, at the bodice, and in her hair. Underneath, she wears a crinoline with a narrow strip of vinyl stitched to the hem, nylon panty, rayon socks and white vinyl Mary Jane shoes.
