Item description for Effanbee's Dy-Dee: The Complete Collector's Book by Barbara Craig Hilliker...

Known as the "almost-human" doll, Dy-Dee was produced continuously by the Effanbee Doll Company form 1934 through the 1950s, and became one of the most-loved baby dolls for several generations of little girls. One of the earliest "drink-and-wet" dolls, she was available in several sizes. Layettes, clothing patterns, furniture and a multitude of accessories were produced for her. In this comprehensive collector's reference, Barbara Craig Hilliker, author of Bleuette: The Doll and Her wardrobe, traces Dy-Dee's history, providing identification information for the doll as well as for all the materials associated with her. The book includes hundreds of color photographs, including original advertising and publicity materials, guidance for care and restoration and a bonus pattern section. The year 2004 marks the re-introduction of Dy-Dee by the Effanbee Doll Company, which has been documented in step-by-step production photos featured in this book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Effanbee's Dy-Dee: The Complete Collector's Book?

Everything you want to know about Dy-Dee Baby........  Oct 3, 2004
This is a great volume for anyone who had ,has, and loves Dy-Dee Baby. I was amazed at the attention paid to details like clothing and 'baby stuff'. I had a lot of baby stuff for my Dy-Dee and her cousins, but there was a whole lot more available than I ever dreamed. That so many of these dolls have survived, is a testement to Dy-Dee's ability to inspire maternal love and nurturing. It's not only a book for collectors, but also an interesting look at marketing techniques and our culture.
Robert Tonner's motto, 'Believe in the power of play' is illustrated profoundly in this volume, and his reproduction of the Mold 1 Dy-Dee Baby, to be relaeased this fall, is a most fitting tribute to the baby doll that has captured so many hearts over the years.
