2004 Dolls Magazine Award of Excellence Nominee. LE1000. Dressed Doll.
Button Nose was first manufactured in 1938 as an 8" composition doll with side glancing painted eyes and molded hair. A popular Effanbee doll throughout the early 40's when doll wigs were scarce, her molded hair and "impish" face bring to mind a toddler who is full of fun. The Baby Button Nose doll manufactured from 1968 to 1981 bore little resemblance to her early namesake. A traditional baby-doll, she often came with a wardrobe of outfits.
Our 2004 edition of Baby Button Nose is made from a commissioned sculpt done for Effanbee? by renowned doll artist Ann Timmerman. Our baby combines the "impish" charm of the 1940's doll with the sweet sensibility of the best Effanbee babies! At 20" of huggable vinyl, crafted with inset, high-quality acrylic eyes and available in three hair colors, this baby is a wonder! We cannot wait for you to meet her in person!! Baby Button Nose has been designed in limited editions of 1,000 pieces per style for her 2004 debut. Baby Button Nose is a 20" vinyl doll with a painted face, inset, high-quality acrylic eyes with an applied wig in a choice of three hair colors.
