Here is Phoenix, my African American Our New Baby Doll. Phoenix has the Pleasant Co stamp on the back of her neck, with no # underneath. She has very soft coloring, and long soft eyelashes. Her skin tone is ligther than the current African American Bitty Baby, I believe. Her vinyl is creamy and soft. She is just adorable. She is West German made and is fabulous. Her 3 piece Meet outfit is tagged 1990 West Germany.
I believe the African American Our New Baby's are the hardest to find. If you see one, you wont be sorry if you get it!!
There are so many versions of Mollys Christmas Stocking that it is hard to keep them straight. I have decided to upload some pics of my Stocking that in my opinion, is one of the harder ones to find.
There are several versions of the yo-yo, flip book, paint set, and the ballerina. This particular set that I have includes the hard to find wooden blue ballerina. I was so thrilled to find her in a lot that a local woman was selling! In the picture below, you will see all the pieces....however, the little barrettes are missing.
The pieces in this set are awesome quality, typical of the old Pleasant Co days.
Here is one of the version's of Mollys retired Christmas Box.
The complete set consists of a cardboard shipping box with red and green tissue paper inside. There is supposed to be a piece of twine tied around the box.
Also, there is a nurse doll. Some of the nurse dolls have the red cross symbol on their hat, while others do not.
Lastly, there is a Christmas snow globe. This version is the early version with a GLASS globe and wooden base. According to my early Pleasant Co catalog, these snowglobes were only shipped during the summer months due to the risk of the glass shattering from the cold. During the winter months, Pleasant Co would substitute random items to take the place of the Snowglobe.
My particular snowglobe has a red base with a tiny red bow around it. There is a snowman inside.
This set is superb and really reflects the old Pleasant Co quality. I have both the older and newer sets and of course, this one is my favorite.
Like most of the Our New Baby items, this stroller is fantastic. It looks fantastic and is made wonderfully.
The stroller frame is metal. The cloth is red denim. There is a canopy that opens and closes. The seat reclines or sits up, depending on whether or not your baby wants to lay down. There is a bar on the back to hang your diaper bag. The stroller folds up for easy storage.
I believe these are pretty hard to find. Which makes sense since they are around 20 years old!!
I give this item an A. Here are some pics of Aubrey in the stroller:
You get a cute little red tshirt, and red and white striped overalls. Very casual and classic, and can be worn for such occassions as Christmas and Valentines Day if you dont want your ONB to wear BB clothing.
I give it a grade A-, only because its a tad hard to get the shirt on, and mine tore a bit at the seam by trying to force it on. Here is Zane modeling it for you all to see!
