Not long after World War II (1945) ended, new development in
plastic material was introduced by doll makers as a replacement to
dolls made of composition. The new material is durable, could be molded, washed, etc.
Ideal was one of the first companies to produce dolls of plastic material
beginning in 1946, soon followed by the rest of the industry.
