Plated Moulde, Inc.

As a Buyer and Seller of old vintage dolls, toys and collectibles on eBay, I purchased a large black plastic Dydee doll at an auction that came in a large sealed cardboard box with some other miscellaneous items.


In all my years of buying and selling old dolls, I had never seen one like this.

It is about 18 inches tall, has molded hair and eyes with real eyelashes. The doll is dark brown and has jointed curved arms and dumpy legs. (See Photo)

On the back of the head is engraved "Plated Moulde, Inc. (c) 1961". I recently learned that the Ideal Toy Company made toys under that name in the 1060s out of Pennsylvania, but have not been able to verify this,

If anyone knows who the maker of this doll is, and its possible value today, I would appreciate hearing from you. The doll is in very good condition, except for a sleepy left eye that has trouble opening wide.

The name of the parent company is Plastic Moulded Arts. Go to Pat Smith's first guide on Modern Collectors Dolls, 1972, by, I think, The Hobby House Press, Paducah. There is some history on the company there. Good Luck!
