Description

Here is a Super Rare I Love Lucy Baby by American Character in 1952 -
only in production for a few months and in great condition!!
When you find this doll at all, all of them are unmarked, so unless
you are a collector and know how to identify her, she's largely lost
in the world of doll collecting.
This is a great opportunity to add this to your Lucy memorabilia..
She is 16" and was produced while Lucy was pregnant and was also used
on the show in place of the real infant.

Originally this sold for $9.98! When her baby,
Little Ricky was born, American Character came out with the
Ricky, Jr. doll and production of this baby was discontinued.
An ad stated: "You will see Lucy and Desi play Poppy and Mommy with this wonderfully lifelike doll on the
"I Love Lucy" TV Show - you will see Lucy feed it, diaper it, watch it cry real tears and pacify it...your little girl can do all these things with the "I Love Lucy Baby."
And this baby does indeed do all these things!
This Lucy Baby has a hard plastic red molded hair; rubber hands down
body - just like the Tiny Tears doll that was in production then too.
All of this baby's lashes are intact, her face is high color with bright blush, clear complexion.
Her molded hair is a lovely golden red and is just about perfect with only the very slightest specs of paint loss. She's all original and simply GREAT!
Her rubber body has no cracks - she is soft and supple - squeezable sweet! The coloring of the body is still light. The baby comes with her
original factory layette robe with pink embroidery and ribbon trim down the front and lace at sleeves and collar; matching romper and matching
bonnet with embroidered organdy and net lace trim, along with a satin ribbon flower. Clothing is complete and items are still crisp and beautiful.
* Her inner legs have a "smudge" in the mold - it's hard to explain - it's not damaged, but part of the mold.
