This exquisite red-haired "Wendy helps mummy in the garden sometimes" doll is documented in the "Alexander-Kins for 1955" brochure as design #422 -- though it's VERY hard to believe this pristine charmer is almost 50 years old.

Rosy-cheeked as the day she was made and in perfect working order, she honestly looks brand-new and her checked gingham dress and rickrack-trimmed turquoise pinafore are factory-crisp. She even has her little yellow garden spade. The only fault we can find is the usual problem with stretched socks and shoes lacking straps; those snap shoes and weird socks were a menace! Replacing these is a wonderful pair of red and gold sandals from the same era (included). Wendy will come to you in her original box, marked 422 and sporting a Texas shop's $3.95 price tag. In good though not perfect condition, the box still contains a piece of that famous pink tissue. You'd have to look a long time to find a red-haired Wendy this old in such fantastic condition.

Thanks for looking!
