Historical Information on Effanbee Dy-Dee Baby

The Effanbee Doll Company first produced their famous Dy-dee Baby doll in the 1930′s. The doll continued to be produced into the 1950′s with various changes. The first doll (Mold 1) had molded ears, hair and almond-shaped sleep eyes with human hair or mohair eyelashes. The head was made of very hard rubber which almost looked like composition or hard plastic and the body was a softer rubber. 

Sizes and names differentiated the dolls. The 9-inch was “Dy-Dee-Wee” and the 11-inch “Dy-Dee-Ette.” “Dy-Dee-Kin” was 13 inches while “Dy-Dee-Baby” was 15 inches. Other names in the line were “Dy-Dee-Kins,” “Dy-Dee-Jane,” “Dy-Dee-Louise” and “Dy-Dee-Ellen.”
