So, these are some vintage dolls. They were made by my favorite illustrator, Mary Blair, who everyone knows is my favorite. She did all of the It's a Small World illustrations and a lot of amazing posters in the 50s and 60s. It was unusual, at that time, that a woman would get to work in that world and be so prevalent.
She's most well-known for her color work. In the backgrounds of a lot of cartoon shows and movies she would create mood by using color which was kind of a new idea that would really influence the emotions of what was happening in the show.
These dolls are so cute.
When my boy, Bud, turned 1, Clark and his wife, Lauren, bought him a ton of vintage Mary Blair books. So, I've been soaking her up for a long time now.
HAHA I was just thinking Mary Blair. This is too tough! I need some time to think about it.
