Remember my mystery walking doll Roberta? I’m still trying to ID her. I thought that she might be an Ideal Walker from the 1960s, possibly Goody Two Shoes who was made around 1965. Mine walked and talked although she’s in bad shape and does neither now. I’d love to get her fixed one day.
I also came across photos of similar dolls made by Estrela around the same time. I think it’s quite likely they were making dolls under licence from Ideal.
I found this short video on YouTube of an Estrela doll labelled Prosinha.
In the video it looks as if the dolls mouth moves when she “speaks”. I don’t think mine would do that. If these pictures jog your memory I’d love some help to figure this out.
