On a recent trip to visit my grandmother (Jax’s Great Grandmother!), she ended up digging out some vintage toys that she saved from her seven children. She was particularly in love with this one doll with “battie” eyes that she insisted on posing in the background of all the pictures with Jax (see below).
Despite the fact that I have come across the “official” name of this doll before and that Grandma said it many times during the strange photo shoot, I couldn’t remember it when I was saving the pictures from the trip. I Googled “Vintage doll with eyes”– because, clearly, that is the best way to search for an old doll that you know nothing about.
This was the result. Seriously? I’m going to have nightmares for a week.What’s even more disturbing, is that I sifted through these results to page THREE where I finally found an image for my grandmother’s doll- the Kewpie Doll.
