This 1953 I Love Lucy Little Ricky Jr. Baby Carriage is an extremely rare and vintage collector piece for the serious I Love Lucy Collector. This is an extremely difficult item to find and if you are looking for that unique Gift.....this is it! This baby carriage was sold as an accessory to the 21" Ricky Jr. Doll we we also currently have for sale. It is of very good size. Not small like sold in stores for today's dolls, but much larger. It measures 30" long x 30" high x 16" wide at the wheels.
According to the original sales ad for this carriage, it stated, "RICKY JR'S PLAYTIME PRODUCTS DOLL CARRIAGE. No prouder little girl ever walked Main Street than your little girl, when she takes Ricky Jr. for an airing in his own Ricky Jr. carriage."
Navy Blue and gray in color, this carriage is in overall good condition. On both sides of the carriage are white pictures of little girls with carriages and the words, "Ricky Jr." It has the pull up sunguard hood and the old rubber wheels. The wheels do have some wear, but completely functionable. The inside is cloth lined with some minor worn spots. Overall, great for being 54 years old! It is made of vinyl, which is easily wiped clean. To store, the carriage can be folded down horizontal. The wheels and adjustable parts are made of silver metal.
Everything works including the wheels, brakes, springs, convertible top, which moves freely, and the lettering is quite good. It is missing three of it's four wheel hubs.
What a great I Love Lucy treasure!! A great piece of memorabilia!! A Fabulous Find for any true I Love Lucy Fan and/or Collector!! One amazing gift idea!!
