Here are some more of the oddities I found at the Jockey Lot.
They're awfully cute and quirky, but they're nappy as hell. I'm not sure what these little angels are, but I'm pretty sure they weren't intended to look like homeless children.
I haven't been able to gather any info about them, because all I got from their markings is "Made in Korea." The guy I bought them from claimed they are "rare dolls from the 70s" (if that's the case, why'd they cost a buck each?).
It looks to me that these cuties are from a series of dolls that depict a collection of facial/emotional expressions (and quite possibly various ethnicities) that range from crying, to smiling, to giving the evil eye. They're so cute sitting there in their colored dresses (or onesy or whatever they're supposed to be).
You think these girls are anything like the Seven Dwarves? If so, it looks like I've gathered, Bratty, Huffy, Pouty, Whiny and Ditzy. Who's left in the collection? Sulky? Sneaky?
These may be considered what some doll collectors call "dirty babies" (which are essentially old, beat-up, dirty, nappy baby dolls). If anyone knows anything about these dolls, please help me out. I'm trying to run a blog here
