Pink Haired Ballerina by Belle Doll & Toy Corp.

Pink Haired Ballerina by Belle. View her full-length photo and her original box.

Not much is known about the Belle Doll & Toy Corp. They are most known for their glamour dolls: Twixie‘s posability was meant to capitalize on the popularity of Uneeda’s Dollikin; Margie and Marjorie are all-vinyl high-heeled dolls whose faces resemble Alexander’s Cissy; Little Miss Margie is similar to Ideal’s Little Miss Revlon. One thing that seems certain is that, while the company’s dolls were patterned after the successful dolls of other companies, they had a charm and personality of their own as well.

  1. I am in search of a Pink Haired Ballerina by Belle. My sister had one as a child. All she has left of her are her slippers. Any help in locating one would be appreciated.

    • Sheila, she is a tough one to find. Because she is not marked “Belle” most people cannot identify her unless she is in her original box. So those who might have one for sale won’t know how to describe her correctly. My only suggestion is to keep searching online for pink hair ballerinas, email dealers who carry a lot of vintage dolls, and visit doll shows in your area. Good luck in your quest!

  2. I have a Margie the teenage doll, that I have had for since 1956 or 1957. I know nothing about the doll. I am trying to get some info on the doll or the manufacturer and can’t seem to find much info. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank You

    • Leslie, I don’t know much about Belle and there are no reference books on their dolls. Do you have the 10″ Little Miss Margie or a larger size?

  3. Hi Leslie, I have a Belle Margie Doll I recently listed on eBay. Maybe it’s like yours? I spent a lot of time on line trying to get info on this doll:
