These Need New Homes, Too


I am offering the following dolls for sale here at the following prices. Shipping is extra based on the weight of the package and destination.  NRFB = Never removed from the box.  Paypal is the only payment method accepted.






David and Ruthie, Horsman 1975, an Irene Szor creation were America's 1st mass-produced, anatomically-correct dolls, which was controversial at the time.  The box has a warning to parents regarding the doll's anatomical parts.  They are 13-1/2-inch drink and wet babies with soft vinyl bodies.  They were featured and valued at $75 each in my first book, The Definitive Guide to Collecting Black Dolls.  Your price:  $100 for the pair.

"I used to want the Magic Hair Chrissy" too, D7ana. :-) I actually have another one that was purchased redressed without hair pieces that I plan to keep. When the boxed doll was purchased, I was into "I need to complete my black Chrissy family collection" mode.

Thanks for the good, luck wishes! This is just a tip of the iceberg of dolls that need new homes.

Like you I did get rid of some dolls, not many though... Still have blk Brigitte on my mind.
I hope you are successful.. I just gave loads of brand new Barbies , the lunch box, the keychains. and many NIB Barbie dolls away... Shindana, Zuri and all.. so many dolls here. A tiny tears even.. Trying to make room to play..

Black Doll Enthusiast said...

It's wonderful that you have been successful in finding new homes for your dolls. Trying to make room to play will eventually become every diehard doll collector's dilemma.

My Black Brigitte is a keeper. I hope you are successful in finding one.

King Family said...

Yes,,, it is a good feeling.. I still have to rid self of many more... Just have been busy of late to go through all the containers and try to eliminate a few large ones. Getting old and don't need all this in my way.. Best wishes are you selling some of yours.. I never sell, just get rid of. ha.. easier for me.

Black Doll Enthusiast said...

Yes, I'd like to sell those that I desire to sell.
