This is a darling little doll, 18" tall. She is made by Ideal in 1966-1967. She is a rare made in JAPAN Red Head. Her name is Giggles. When you pull her hands together her head rocks back and forth and her flirty eyes move from left to right, she vibrates, but doesn't sound like a giggle to me. So, I am selling her as SHE NO LONGER GIGGLES. She is too cute. She is wearing a replaced dress and panties made by her prior owner. She is wearing new white sandals with little pink, blue and lavender hearts on them. She has a hard vinyl/plastic body and a soft vinyl face. Her face is a lighter color than her body.

She is marked on the back of her head 1966/Ideal Toy Corp/GG-18-H-77-JAPAN. She is marked on her right hip 1967/Ideal Toy Corp/GG-18/Made in Japan. I talked to a fellow Ebayer and was told that the Japan red head dolls were made primarily for Australia. These dolls are new to me and I am not an expert, so ask questions and I will try to find an answer.

She is in very good condition. However, she has a bluish stain on the middle toe of her right foot and a small indentation on the heel of her right foot. Other than that she has a few very minor rubs, scrapes and nicks on her legs that are consistent with play and age. They are so minor, I did not photograph, but will send additional pictures if requested.
