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 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 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 values, 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 has 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.
