This poor doll has got to be the worst thing I've ever seen. Her eyes roll around independently of each other. Her arms are melted....and she's wearing a wig. She has molded hair under her wig. The only marking I see is Ideal. She has a talk box, so I think she's a horrible former Mama doll. Her tag said Aunt Mary's Flossie Flirt.

Mystery Solved

    Ideal doll Flossie flirty eyes is exactly who she is :-) 1923-1931 Ideal Flossie Flirt doll, Flossie Flirt Junior doll, 12-23" tall, 1928 Sears ad states: "Americas best known Ma-Ma doll", rolls her flirty eyes from side to side, winks and blinks her sleep eyes, soft rubber arms and hands, marcelled parted mohair wig, composition head, smiling open mouth with teeth, body and legs are stuffed with cotton.

    Also, 1926-1929 Ideal Vanity Flossie or Gay Flossie, 20" tall, same doll came with comb & mirror & other vanity accessories, available as a premium for Needlecraft magazine in 1927

    I'm not used to people calling my stuff beautiful! =) Thank you! I think what got me was her arms are melted so they have a really odd look to them. And I didn't know about her eyes moving independently of each other, and when I picked her up one was facing the top of her head and the other was facing right. A little alarming at first but I believe she grows on you. =) I was shocked at the price they charged...just $9!
