This is a circa 1950s 21" unidentified Betsy Wetsy doll marked '4 1/2" CT on her head and 20 on her body. She is designed to drink and wet. She has a sculpted, dimpled realistic vinyl child's body, puckered red lips with a drinking hole, blue sleep eyes with painted lashes underneath. She has honey blond curly saran hair and a red, white and green taffeta dress marked Nano with a pink crinoline. She is in good condition, however her dress has been repaired. She is wearing white socks with black vinyl shoes. One eye looks crooked when she is asleep but not when her eyes are open. She has a tiny hole between her legs and an outlet on her butt. The wetting apparatus which needs a new bladder has been removed and will be included.
Betsy Wetsy was one of the most popular drink-and-wet dolls of the Baby Boom era, originally issued by the Ideal Toy Company of New York in 1935. Named for the daughter of Abraham Katz, the head of the company, the doll's special feature was simulating urination after a fluid was poured into her open mouth. The Reliable Doll Company in Canada also had a Betsy Wetsy doll this size.
