Thumbelina

baby doll

Ideal's Thumbelina doll signaled the beginning of animated baby dolls. A wind-up mechanism in the doll's torso enabled it to slowly move its head and limbs in imitation of a squirming infant. First offered in 1961, the doll remained on the market into the 1970s. Late dolls also featured a crier and a pull string to activiate sound.
