Meet Ideal's Baby Snookie! Born ca. 1951 - 1955. And here she is in her original box! Here's how she's described on the box:

"The Baby Doll with the Life-Like Features.....She Cries!.....I Love my Snookie. She's Adorable!....Idealite Head.....Almost Human Features......Washable, Sanitary, Durable, Very Soft..."

This 10" vintage 1950's doll is dressed in her original pink cotton robe, tied with a ribbon. She's wearing her original white diaper secured with a safety pin. Her torso and limbs are a soft rubbery material that I believe was referred to as "Magic Skin." Her head is a very soft flexible vinyl. She has painted bright blue eyes and red mouth.

Squeeze her tummy and she "cries." It's really more of a squeak than a cry - but it still works!

Condition: Very Good. I honestly don't think she had ever been taken out of her box. Her face and cheeks are clean, and none of the paint has chipped from her blue eyes & and pretty red mouth. Lovely!

There are a few flaws. The box is holding together, but is somewhat bent / warped and has a few tears. Also, vintage "magic skin" is notorious for not holding up well. This little Snookie's skin is still squishy soft and pliable - but there are some little bubbles so it feels lumpy in places, and her toes look a bit misshapen. But I think this adds to her vintage charm!

So, the doll isn't minty....but she's still adorable. And when you see her, and squeeze her soft little cheeks and hear her squeak/cry - you'll fall in love!

Warm Wishes,

P.S. - A note about the SHIPPING COST!
This item will be shipped USPS Priority Mail. The $9.50 shipping cost quoted is the maximum you will pay - but it could be as low as $6.00. Email me your zip code before paying to get the exact cost - or I will be happy to reimburse you later, if necessary. My goal is to keep your shippings costs as low as possible!
