Description
This is a very good condition 1975, #1176 Effanbee Doll in a pink laced outfit. It's in good condition as well. She measures approximately 11" height. The number is 1176. Her eyes can close and open.Her hair looks like it had sometype of tie on it but it's no longer there. And her shoes are missing as well.

Effanbee was started in 1910 by two businessmen who operated neighboring shops on Atlantic City's boardwalk. Bernard Fleischaker and Hugo Baum began by selling toys and dolls; within a couple of years they were having doll heads made especially for them, and by the 1920s were making their own composition parts. Although the company was officially called Fleischaker and Baum, they began using the trademark EFFanBee (from the first letters of their last names) by 1915, and eventually that became the name of the company.

In the '70's, the company began to look toward the collector market and devised a new business strategy in which the dolls were catalogued in "collections" wearing matching outfits.
In 1976, Effanbee introduced a standard basic doll that was used for many different historical and storybook characters, both male and female. The dolls were initially 11" tall, but in later years, 15" and 18" basic dolls joined the lineup.

Mailouts are Mondays and Fridays.
