I received my Toni doll as a gift from my maternal grandmother on the day I was born, September of 1954. She has lived in her original box ever since and has yearly visits with me.
Because she is in mint condition, I wonder what she is valued at? Of course, to me, she is priceless and I will not part with her. My daughter, and now my four granddaughters, visit her on my birthday every year and we marvel at her perfect features and clothes.
I can't tell you why I never "played" with her, but she has brought me countless hours of pleasure nonetheless.
