...making the Toni Dolls a fun doll to display!
Toni Dolls Big and little sister--Little and big sister.
Toni Dolls Friends...Another friend.
Toni Dolls Twins and…
...Triplets Party Dress.
Toni was produced by Ideal Toy Corporation and is marked IDEAL DOLL/MADE IN U.S.A/P-90 (14") or P-91 (16") , P-92 (19"), P-93 (21") or P-94 (approx. 22").
Usually, most of her
hard plastic parts are marked with the size...for example, the legs
and arms at the ball for adjoining are marked with P-90 or such which
attains to the size of the doll.
I say USUALLY, as at
one time I observed a collector pull apart a literally mint in box
doll which had been handed down through the family, looking for the
markings on each limb. They were not there.
THIS DOES NOT MEAN
THE DOLL WAS NOT ORIGINAL.
eBay has a rather
large set of listings of vintage Ideal Toni dolls for sale, if you
are interested in a purchase, or to find values if looking for costs,
it is necessary to register with eBay.
Remember, dolls were
produced in mass quantity for businesses to make a profit. As the
line produced dwindled in popularity or production of parts was
hindered in some way, other unmarked similar limbs were used to
complete the doll.
The idea that all parts have to be correctly numbered to please a collector of the future is a thought that did not occur to all parties working to make a business profitable and children happy.
