Uneeda 1958 Dollikin, 19" tall,

1958 Uneeda Dollikin doll 19" tall

Uneeda Doll Company Inc. made the Dollikin dolls from 1958-1980s.  Dollikin's began as 19-20" fashion dolls - the world's most posable doll.  Marked UNEEDA 2S (sometimes mis-read as Uneeda 25 or Uneeda 28), they had rooted hair in various colors and several styles, sleep eyes and most amazing - sixteen joints to pose her, just like a human (well a young one at least).  The doll had a wardrobe as usual, that resembled the current fashions. 

 

Note; There are Uneeda 2S marked dolls that used the same dollikin heads, but do not have the sixteen multi-joints, just (six) the neck, shoulder, waist and hip joints.  These dolls are "dollikin like", high heel fashion dolls, but do not command a price anywhere near that of the true multi-jointed Dollikin dolls.
