WHAT A FIND! This very rare and hard to find 1954 Little Ricky Jr. American Character Doll is in GREAT condition. It is the perfect gift for that serious I Love Lucy Collector as it is an amazing collector piece.
This doll is 21 inches long. He has a hole in his mouth where a baby bottle is inserted and has reddish brown hair. Most of the Little Ricky Dolls created had molded, vinyl hair. There were only 2 models with actual doll hair.
In 1954, American Character developed several different Little Ricky dolls, but the final one was the 21" vinyl doll that was later used in the advertising ads. Vinyl darkening is common in these older dolls--but there is very little to no darkening on this doll. Considering his age, he looks amazing!
All the more amazing is that he comes in the original outfit consisting of a white shirt with yellow buttons and embroidered across the shirt is "Ricky Jr.". He is wearing a yellow corduroy romper with chickens. His Eyes properly open and close when lying down or sitting up.
Celebrate the long lasting appeal of America's favorite TV family with this Little Ricky Jr. Doll. We will continue to take you back to the I Love Lucy Era and make you smile!!
