Something about a doll with teeth

Just doesn't sit right. Or is it "bite right"?

Dissin' da dolly

Aw! Don't you listen to those old meanies, you poor little thing! I think you're beautiful!

That is Barbie's Grandma

And you can tell by her posture, she was also a flirt but was flat-chested, unlike her granddaughter. Like they say, you plant a McIntosh, you get a McIntosh.

Not quite right

The chair is too big for the doll. Her feet would be dangling. This is the sort of thing that annoyed me when I was a kid, so I didn't like playing with dolls.

I propose a contest: find the Lady of Shorpy who most closely resembles this doll. I can't remember the name of the lady (movie star, maybe?) who posed with the fancy roadster a while back, but seems to be she should be in the running.

Okay, creepy

That is all.

Bride of Chucky

It had to be said.

Of all the nights

I pick tonight to browse Shorpy before bed.
