I was fiddling around in the basement and found a box of my Crissy dolls. I didn't find the outfits, the ooak Crissy, or the smaller grow hair dolls. The light burned out in the back basement. So I didn't go any further.
Basements, especially ones around 100 years old, are spooky, cold, and damp. There may be spiders.
Ewwww, thats just creepy. Actually mine is heated but still it's spooky.
But here are three of the four Crissy dolls that I found.
in the 90s (I think) by CBS who destroyed all the Ideal toy records. So there is now no way to know
if the golden hair was planned or the Canada co just had plenty of gold hair to use up. There seems to be
a large quanity of golden haired Crissy. They are only a bit more expensive than a red haired doll.
1970s outfits that nowadays look so bland and unattractive. I bought her off eBay. The lady had a damaged Harmony doll, so she put the head on a Crissy body. Now she can wear all Crissy's mod outfits.
gold filled chain. I have had that necklace for years, and it is perfect with the green nighties Crissy is wearing.
gorgeous. She looks a lot like my Mom.
their supplies and the prices were very reasonable. My ivory elephant came in the pretty Krementz box, and cost $7.95.
Krementz was a family owned company in business for over 130 years. It was sold out of the family in the late 90s. They were in Newark NJ, and the building was actually gold plated!
George Krementz invented a new way to overlay gold when he saw a gun cartridge making machine at the Centinial Expo of 1876. He captured the gold overlay button market for the world.
I just wish I could find a picture of the gold plated building!
