Over the years, through moving home and the like, I have lost many of the dolls I collected during my Childhood...Sadly my Kewpie was one of them.
In recent years, I have managed to get hold of a few more and here they are:
|9 Inch Vintage Kewpie (on left). |
7 Inch Vintage Maori "Holiday Souvenir Doll" (Right).
5 Inch Vintage Kewpie (in front.)
I've seen a couple more of these recently so suspect the pink pants are original (unfortunately these are sun-faded at the back) when you drop them...boy do you get a surprise!! lol
Anyhoo, other than that I know nothing, no manufacturer's stamp that I've noticed so any info would be great guys! xx

8 Inch (Vintage) Kewpie.

5 Inch (Vintage) Kewpie.
2 Inch (Contemporary) Kewpie.
Both the 5 inch Kewpie and the 2 Inch Contemporary Kewpie have moulded wings stamped onto their backs.
|This little guy (Oddly, my largest Kewpie) is my favourite,|
along with Mr.Tinkles!
He looks just like the one my Aunt Bessie gave to me.
He stands at 9 inches tall.

I didn't even know you could get dark skinned Kewpie dolls, so when I saw this one I had to have her!!
She's 7 inches tall and as cute as a button!
Here's my "Big Baby" again, he just seems to have the perfect Kewpie Look,
well as far as I'm concerned anyway!

It made him have a kind of "fold" in the plastic of his face around the eye region, and as this just didn't fit in with my idea of a "Kewpie Ideal", I decided he needed to be rehomed to someone who would love him!
I ended up giving him up for adoption to Simon, (a Flickr Friend). They make a good match!
