Today's doll is one I just love. She's Play'n Jane.
Play'n Jane was made by Ideal in 1971.
She's wearing her original shirt, pants, and shoes.
Jane is about 16" tall,in spite of what her ad says.
Jane's gimmick was that she plays.
Powered by one C battery,she originally played basketball,horseshoes, and tic tac toe.
That's why she can assume a sitting position. She had to be able to operate her toys. When she did, her movements were raising and lowering her right arm and head.
Her right arm is in a bent position so she can smack the switch to flip the lever that flips the balls and things.
There is a drawback to that though. Because it's necessary for her head to mechanically lower, it can't be turned. She can only ever look forward.
But she has such a pretty face that I can overlook her limited posability.
You can see the commercial for Play'n Jane HERE.
I don't have any of Jane's accessories,but I think she's a very cute doll even without them.
She has silky red hair that's rooted to be in two ponytails.
She looks cute with it down too.
When it's combed, the part in the back is completely covered.
Tomorrow is another doll. See you then.
