TAKI - Beautiful chunky asian baby representing Japan and designed by Annette Himstedt of Germany for " The Barefoot Babies Collection" 1990/91 produced by Mattel Inc. for US Market and made in Spain. Taki is approximately (23") tall . She is barefooted and is a sitting doll with a Tan Velvety fabric body, Hard Vinyl Head and Limbs. She does not have a shoulder plate but has a weighted pellet body which the head and limbs are connected to directly so she would feel more like a real baby. Her head turns on the body for posing. Her limbs and neck have the Himstedt imprints She has a baby fine Dark Brown Mohair wig and Brown eyes. She is wearing a Pink Cotton dress, bonnet and matching bloomers with White eyelet and ric-rac trim. She has a White cotton full slip. She has not been removed from her packaging since I bought her. I do not know if she had been displayed but she appears fresh and new looking with no marks that I could see. She has an original certificate and her booklet which has some rubs on the outside and original box. She was shipped in the wrong numbered Himstedt shipper box. She comes from a NON-SMOKING home with NO MOLD OR MILDEW . Please ask any questions before bidding and I will be happy to answer them.
