Happy Mother's Day


They were dubbed "The mother and the baby of today" in 1973. That's right I'm talking 9" Jenny Jones and 2.5" Baby John. No Mr. Jones was included or mentioned on the box or in any of the advertising. Jenny wears a silver "band" on her left ring finger so the assumption was that Jenny was married. No one complained about the lack of a husband in the box, but those were different days. Sigh.

Mothers appear in other fashion doll series. Jenny reminds me of other playscale mother dolls even though she was a little "hipper" than most. I will be posting a list of playscale mothers this week.

Happy Mother's Day!
