Doll Name:

Tiny Tears

A lovely vintage Palitoy Tiny Tears doll measuring approximately 16". She is very clean and fresh smelling, and is in good condition for her age. She is marked with '3506 3/4 EYE 16H PALITOY LTD MADE IN ENGLAND' across the back of her neck. She dates back to 1973 and was one of the first 16H dolls produced, as her body moulding doesn't have a belly button and is seamed at the sides.

Tiny Tears is an all vinyl doll with rotational joints which allow her arms and legs to flop like a baby's. She has soft shiny pale blonde hair with a longer 'topknot' section of hair which has been tied with two little bows. Her hair is uncut with no obvious missing hair plugs. Tiny's eyes are light blue, the palest of the Palitoy Tiny Tears eye colours. The weight inside one eye is loose so the eye needs assistance to open and close, and there is a dark mark on the eye as shown. There are eyelashes on both eyes but they have been trimmed, on one eye they have been cut very short.
Tiny Tears doesn't have any ink marks, and the only damage to her finger and toes is a tiny scrape to one 'fingernail', which barely shows but is being mentioned for accuracy.

Tiny Tears was designed to  be a 'drink and wet' doll, but this function no longer works.

This doll is a very clean, with freshly washed and conditioned hair. She is wearing a vintage Faerie Glen dress, a new pair of pale pink knitted knickers, and a pair of pink Cinderella shoes which are unused vintage stock. 

An lovely Tiny Tears doll for a collector or for someone who fondly remembers this doll.
