1959-1960s Jolly Toy Jinx doll, 20"

Not much is known about the Kaysam-Jolly Toys Company of New York, USA.  They manufactured various hard plastic and vinyl dolls into the 1970s or so.  The Kaysam name would seem to imply a melding of the two founders names, as dolls are sometimes found with only the Kaysam marking. 

 

Other dolls have the Jolly Toy added in the marking, and still other dolls have been found in boxes marked with Nasco Creations labels, another USA doll manufacture during this era.
