4.0 out of 5 stars Good Reference Book for Us 50's Kids 2 Mar 2006
By B. Graupmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found a wealth of information in this book about dolls from the smaller companies and on Mattel's budding doll line. I even found a few I had as a child but have not seen in other books and had not been able to ID until now. A lot of doll accessories are included for specific dolls that are not usually seen unless you have an old ad or catalog /booklet for that doll. This is a good addition to any collector's library and nicely showcases the dolls and girl toys of the era many of us think was the best of American dolls .

3.0 out of 5 stars Teri Lee Teri lee 30 Jan 2006
By Sam Pea Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is good but VERY lacking in pictures of some of the more desirable dolls like Tiny Betsy McCall - not one picture!

Ditto with many other dolls. Teri Lee gets about 6 pages, most other dolls and manufacturers get 2 pages and sometimes NO pictures. Way out of proportion! I was disappointed at the unbalanced coverage, even though the book was very nice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Baby Boomer 1950s 11 April 2013
By Debra duPont - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good general purpose book for 50s-60s dolls. The photos are good and plentiful. I was mostly interseted in Ginny Dolls and the book offered 31/2 pages of info with color photos. Chatty Cathy, Patty Playpal were also on my list and the book presented basic info with photos. Overall, I am happy to have a copy in my doll library.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best reference 22 Jan 2013
By scooty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I find this book to be one of the best referances on dolls of the 1950's, i own a few dolls from 1950 and it is nice to see them in this book and to see what they would have come with brand new, ie, bottles, clothes, etc. Great reference book.
