I got this doll from my great aunt I would love to know how old she is. She has three faces ,happy, sleeping and crying. She made out of soft fabric and is still in good shape. I would love to know if there is any more out there and what she's worth.

    This is Ideal's "Little Lost Baby" from 1968. It was battery operated, and she would coo, laugh, and sleep.

    Whoops.... I spoke too soon. This is not the battery operated one, this looks like a slightly later model, smaller, and without the battery/ talking feature.

    I dont think it take's battery's but there is something hard is her stomach but no opening. I wish I could find out if there's more like her.

    Although I wasn't successful at finding this exact doll, since Ideal made the more complex and larger Little Lost Baby, my guess is they decided to make a less expensive version a year or two later. I'll certainly let you know if I find out anything else about her. Ideal was a very large & successful toy company, and I'm sure there are more like her out there!

  8. stefdesign stefdesign, 6 years ago
