ABC Toy Company Mama Doll 17"

ca. 1940s ABC Toy Company Mama Doll 17"

 

 

There is very little known about the A.B.C. Toy Company, dolls and toys were probably distributed through Butler Brothers, it appears the few dolls found marked or with original hangtags were perhaps purchased from other doll makers, then dressed and sold.      

 

ca. 1940s ABC Mama Doll, 17" tall, composition head and limbs, cloth stuffed body, Mama crier, lightly molded brown hair, brown sleep eyes, closed mouth.  Other sized Mama dolls were probably available too.

Doll marked on back of neck A.B.C. TOY CO. 

 

 

1949-1950s ABC Toy Company Mary Hoyer type doll, 14" tall, all hard plastic, some have molded hair with molded ears beneath the wig, blonde saran wig with curly bangs and two braids tied with plaid bows, blue sleep eyes, real upper eyelashes, painted lower eyelashes, closed mouth, fully jointed body at neck, shoulders and hips, came with an A.B.C. Toy Company tag and booklet with instructions for washing the saran wig.

 

Shown wearing her original clothing; a sheer short white puff sleeved blouse, red, white and blue jumper plaid with floral trimed suspenders, red plastic belt, matching big plaid hair bows, white nylon socks and red leather shoes with ties.  This same plaid jumper outfit is found on Arranbee's Nanette doll.

 

Doll is marked on back as shown below like the Mary Hoyer dolls without text inside the circle, it's possible other doll makers also sold this doll and likely Mary Hoyer, herself had sold the mold.
