Or is she really creeping me out?
|Wanna come to my house?|
I don't know alot about her. I think she's from the early to mid sixties, and she was made by Ratti, an Italian doll company.I don't know her real name. I call her Creepy Ratti doll. If anybody knows her real name, please let me know. I know there was a doll with this face and blonde hair called Mary, (the doll, not the hair...) and a Pippi Longstocking with this face, red hair, and pigtails.I don't know if 'Mary' just came in various hair colours, or if all the different colours had different names.

I got her at an auction where I got LOADS of Italian dolls of various brands. Most were from this same era, or close to it. For example, I got several Furga S girls, etc. I got so many Italian dolls,just so many dolls in general. You may have read here before about the auction where I got so many dolls I am still trying to get rid of the last of them. Well that was her auction.I was literally having dreams where I was sorting through Italian dolls. More like nightmares really.Too many dolls! (Never thought I'd say that.)
The creepy thing about her is her eyes, combined with the weird smile. You may have read me say that I like dolls with teeth. Well I do. Maybe these teeth wouldn't be quite so weird if they were all painted white. But these teeth have pink from her mouth paint on them. Looks like gums and makes her smile weirder.
Her eyes look kind of like they would be the type that follow you but they're not...thank goodness!
So far I like her enough to keep her. The kids say she's not nearly as creepy as my Baby See N Say.
UPDATE: Thanks to a recent comment I now know that this is a Tjorven doll. See the comments for details. Thanks Alice!
