Hard Plastic Doll Ideal Playpal Terri Twist Miss Ideal Daddy's Girl Vintage

Up for auction from a local estate is a late 50's, early 60's Ideal Miss Terri Twist or Miss Ideal. She stands approx. 28 inches tall and is marked (IDEAL TOY CORP. S P-30- S) on the back of her neck and back.

Terri is wearing her original dress, jacket and shoes, the hat was added by me. I thought it added just the right touch to her outfit. I believe her panties are replaced. Her dress will need mending at the seam (see photo).

Terri's face is very high in color, she has all of her brush lashes, clear blue sleep eyes and no missing hair plugs that I can see. Her hair is on the dry side and could use a shampoo and set to get her original curl. She is jointed at the neck, shoulders, hips and feet. She also has a swivel waste.

Terri is loosely strung and her arms do not hold a pose, but she can be restrung. With a little work she will stand on her own. As for flaws, Terri has a broken right foot. I'm not sure how this happened or how to fix it. She is still a beautiful doll and great for display, especially for Christmas. She will need a light cleaning and sprucing up to be ready for display...


Please note that the above information is given to the best of my knowledge and ability I do not knowingly hide and defects. All of the photos provided are a large part of my auctions, so please view and enlarge them as you may see something that I did not mention or may have over looked. I take my ebay business very serious and always strive for a five star rating so if there is a problem with any my products, please contact me a.s.a.p. before leaving feed back and I will do my best to make it right. Thank you for viewing this auction and have a Great Day...


Please scroll down to read entire listing.

Payment must be made within two days of auction's end. Please contact me if you need to make other arrangements.

Items are shipped within 24-48 hours of payment received and cleared (excluding holidays and weekends). I take great care in packing my items and insure most of my shipments. I use new and recycled boxes and sometimes cut down boxes to fit to save us on shipping fees. I always use appropriate packing materials, i.e. bubble wrap, packing peanuts, etc...

I am happy to combine shipping when appropriate. You can contact me first for revised shipping cost. Please wait for me to send the invoice before making payment.

I try to keep the shipping and handling charges as low as possible for you so please keep in mind shipping charges are actual USPS postage plus a small $2.00 (unless otherwise stated in listing) which helps cover any packaging, materials, confirmation of delivery, insurance, fees, etc... Honestly, I make no money on shipping and there are no hidden costs. Items shipped UPS Ground are a flat rate.

Delivery times are dependent on the USPS/UPS. I ship promptly and can not control USPS postage charges or their delivery times. Please be considerate of that when using the star rating system.

International Customers: Any customs fees, taxes, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery are at the discretion of your country's import regulations. Should they occur, I am in no way responsible for their execution or payment. For any additional information refer to your local customs agency. Also, please know it is becoming quite common for overseas shipments to take a long time to reach their destination. (I don't know why) The time spent in customs is increasing and packages could quite possibly take over a month to be delivered.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your item, please give me the courtesy of contacting me prior to leaving feedback.

Note: Most items I sell come from estates or other sales so I can not be certain what environment the items have been exposed to, i.e. smoke, pet odors, etc... I make no guarantees. If an odor is detected, I will certainly mention it. Since many items I sell come from estates, they are more than likely not brand new. I try to describe the condition as accurately as possible and provide detailed pictures, but if you still have concerns or questions regarding the condition of an item, please feel free to ask questions before bidding.

Returns: Items can be returned, if not as described, within 14 days, at buyer's expense for full item refund, less the s/h, unless stated otherwise in specific listings. Item must be in the same condition as it was when I mailed it out. You will need to contact me first prior to returning an item to insure that refunds are processed properly and quickly. I am not responsible for an item if you don't contact me first for details.

I work hard to make sure you receive prompt service, great communication, a great product and protected packaging, all at the least possible cost to you! I value your business and strive to make sure every transaction is a pleasant and positive one!

I always try to be as accurate as possible in my listings and do now knowingly hide any defects or issues. Most of my items come from estates or other types of sales and there is always room for additional information or clarification based on your questions and/or knowledge to help in bidding decisions.

I am fair and reasonable... almost any problem can be worked out.

If there is a problem, please contact me prior to leaving feedback or anything less than 5 stars so we can resolve it quickly. I appreciate your positive feedback and always give the same in return.

Rest assured, You can bid with confidence! Here's what some of my recent customers had to say:

"Excellent! Quick Ship-Exactly as Described! Would Buy From Again-5 Stars!"


"»-(¯`v´¯)-»?Thank you for a terrific doll!??GREAT SELLER!! ????»-(¯`v´¯)-»?"

"Easy Ebay auction. Great commun. Super descrip. Packed so nicely. Very happy."

"Super WOW!!! 100% perfect! 5 stars seller *****GRACIAS / THANK YOU*******"

"I wish all sellers were like this one, great transaction."

Please take care when using the 5 star rating system. I would appreciate you rating me just as you would like to be rated - we all work hard and positive acknowledgement is always welcome! Some things (i.e. shipping costs, delivery times) are out of our control and I would appreciate not being held accountable for something that I don't have control over.

Feel free to email me directly through eBay. I'll get back to you within 24 hours.

 This was brought to my attention today so I wanted to clarify my listing - Miss Ideal came out first, with straight ankles. Terry Twist came out later with jointed ankles. They apparently are not one in the same and something I didn't know. So this is indeed Terri Twist.
