From my previous posts here of my first German Tadie Clone, and later here, talking about the company that makes these similar face painted dolls. This German Bendable Doll has quite a story to tell us!
She arrived to me Yesterday, and since I was taking my husband to his Physical Therapy appointment, I decided to take the doll with me, to inspect. As I sat in the car waiting for him, I took these initial shots below:
Her body is made of some kind of plastic foam type material, almost feels like paper mache' of sorts. Inside are wires to help her bend. But, I'm afraid if I bend her, her body will rip or tear at the seams! It's no wonder why, we can hardly find these dolls... They've all probably disintegrated? Not the best material to use at all. I'm sure early on, those who bought this doll, their doll's body probably fell apart or tore… They had no use for the head and probably chucked the whole doll. I believe that only because, of her being kept in an attic all these years, and in her bag, is what saved her from falling apart.
Below, a photo of her with my original Tadie Muz… She looks nothing like Tadie, only slightly, more like the other clone doll I have above. I will need to find substitute bodies for both dolls. I'm afraid to dress up this one to many times, for fear the body will fall apart. But, for now, she is wearing a World of Love top, and pants made by an etsy seller for Middie Blythe. Her feet are huge! So, she is wearing a pair of Knickerbocker Holly Hobbie dolls shoes and socks!
Below, comparison photos I created using most that I've found from my research on this particular doll. Please note: Some photos are not mine and were used only for reference purposes. If you would like me to remove your photo, please notify me via email. Thank you.
