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.

    1. "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.
