Shirley Temple Still in her Box, Toodles, a Nun Doll. a Yo-Yo Doll and Other Childhood Friends

My friend Barb collects all kinds of dolls, most from her childhood,  There’s a photo of her in one of the pics, holding her doll.  She has a glass and wooden cupboard filled with her collection.  The reflection makes it tricky to get a clean shot,  I  looked up Toodles  and she is definitely a contemporary from our childhood years in the ’50’s.  What do you collect?

Vintage Yo-Yo Clown Doll Spared from Trash

Vintage Yo-yo- clown hanging around.  Looking pretty sad. Full of dust.
Time to throw him out?  V, we talked about things with a face!  Fifty years of saving him,  gave him a bath. Spared from the trash.  Don’t remember really playing with him,  just propped up on a bookshelf, flopped really.  Colorful and jingles when you move him.  The bells probably dangerous for a child. I think there are still people who make these yo-yo dolls and will check it out. He was just always there.
