ZANY...Lovable Puppet Dolls


This is a rare, vintage, boxed, hand puppet doll of Dick Tracy's daughter Bonny Braids as manufactured by Zany Toys c1952. Bonny was the daughter of Tracy and Tess Trueheart from Chester Gould's famous newspaper comic strip detective.

The doll itself is about 9" long and she has "vinylite" (rubber-like) hands, feet and head. She wears a fabric one-piece, pink pajama with kittens and musical notes printed on it, and the pajama is sewn to a green blanket, about 10 x 12. It is designed so that a child's fingers fit through a slot in the back of the blanket into each arm and leg so that the doll can be moved or wiggled like a baby. With the doll is a 5-1/2 by 8-1/2 instruction sheet explaining how to use "The Zany Baby Puppet Doll."

The box measures about 7 x 12 x 3 and pictures a girl playing with the puppet doll and a diagram showing how to insert fingers into it. It reads "Easy-to-Work Life-Like Soft, Cuddly Vinylite Hand Puppet Doll-With Her Own Fleecy Blanket."

The puppet doll and blanket are in excellent-plus condition and appear to be only very slight soiled mostly due to aging. The dolls face has darkened and the pink on the lips is gone. The box is complete and in fair condition but the corners have been taped, and there is a spot on the front whee tape has pulled off some of the blue paint.

This is a rare item that is very desirable for collectors of Dick Tracy, Chester Gould, vintage toys, dolls and figures, comic strip character dolls, vintage puppets and hand puppets, and the like.
