This is a doll I received as a child. It's a Tiny Thumbelina - OTT 14 on her neck. She has painted eyes and rooted hair. I even have her in the original dress. This doll would be from the early 1960's. The whined up still works and has the original key marked Swisstone Music, Switzerland. Her body is cloth with no tears. I played with her a lot as a child but she's in remarkable condition.

    Welcome to CW ! So cute . Thumbelina is still a popular doll with collectors and to have her original dress too ! Thanks for sharing her :-)
    Ideal Toy Corp. made the original Thumbelina dolls in the 1960's and '70's, in 14 in. size (Tiny Thumbelina) and 20 in. size (Thumbelina). The first dolls had a knob on their backs and when wound up they gently wriggled. Later versions of the doll had criers and pull strings and were also made in 17 in. and 9 in. sizes. The OTT Number on bac of head represents size of doll . Although the 20 " is marked OTT 19 ? again thanks for sharing her .
