TINY BETSY MCCALL
Betsy McCall® Collection
To the delight of mothers and daughters everywhere, Betsy debuted on the cover of McCall's Magazine in May 1951. In 1957, Betsy jumped from the pages of McCall's Magazine into the active hands of her loyal fans as an 8-inch hard plastic doll. Produced by the American Character Doll Company in conjunction with McCall's this Betsy was an instant hit as a playtime friend!
Robert Tonner's 8" Betsy McCall® is an 8-inch, hard plastic doll with synthetic mohair wig and an extensive, fun wardrobe. Her sculpt is based on the original American Character sculpts...but the same molds are not used. Robert studied the original to better engineer away the flaws associated with the 1957 toy to create a collectible for the new millennium. Since the doll's debut in early 2000, collectors have been drawn very closely to the popularly priced collectible as an outstanding representation of the vintage Betsy, and as one of the finest and most unique examples of 8-inch hard plastic dolls today.
Many of 8" Tiny Betsy's outfits are based on original Betsy McCall® paperdoll clothes; each with an all-American charm that celebrates over 50 years of Betsy!
