Doll-A-Day 2019 #9: Belly Button Baby

  Today's doll is Belly Button Baby.

Belly Button Baby was made by Ideal.

The dolls were produced in 1970.

She has a cute open mouth face sculpt with teeth. You know I love dolls with teeth!


She has thickly rooted hair.

She's about 9" tall. You can see a commercial for Belly Button Baby HERE.
The dolls came in various outfits, and with a variety of hair colours.

This one is a boy. There was a girl in a coordinating outfit.
There was also an African American Belly Button Baby, who had a different head sculpt.


I'm not sure if mine is wearing her original outfit, but this is what she was wearing when I got her. 

As her,(or is this one a 'he'?),box says, the doll can be made to move by pressing the 'belly button'. In this case, it's an actual button on the doll's stomach.

The limbs and head are on strings. 

When the button is pushed the arms and legs move,and the head tilts.
The action is sort of like the tiny dolls attached to a stand which has a button in the bottom.

   That's the doll for today. See you again tomorrow for another doll.


  1. Ideal dolls always have such character in their faces! This one certainly is a cute one.

  2. She has a sweet little face with those teeth...yes, I like teeth too :)
    You do have so many different dolls that I've never heard of and think maybe were never available in the UK? I do enjoy seeing all these different dolls, so please keep 'em coming! :)

  3. Another new doll for me.


Thanks in advance for your comments.
