I am posting these pictures in hopes that someone will know more about this doll. She is 24″ tall with a vinyl head with rooted hair and sleep eyes, and a one-piece stuffed vinyl body, with feet shaped to wear high heels. She was originally purchased in a supermarket like many of the Deluxe Reading dolls; but her distinctive face closely resembles Taffy by Arranbee and Patricia Walker by Effanbee. However, both of those dolls had jointed hard plastic bodies. If you know anything about this doll, please post a comment below.

  1. the 24″ doll with vinyl body and foot molded for high heel. One was given to me xmas 1957. She was wearing silvery heels, a satin wedding dress covered with layered lace with a silvery edge, scoop neck and no sleeves. She also had a small pearl necklace, pearl earrings that stuck in the 2 small holes in the head by the ears, and a veil. Have a picture of mine but the dress is not in good shape.

  2. Darling Debbie – Grocery Store Doll -sold in grocery stores in the 1950’s.

    • She is similar to Darling Debbie – but that doll is 6″ taller, and has a different face. She may be another Deluxe Reading doll though, since they did make many dolls with this body type. Thanks for your comment!
