Ideal's Toni was the biggest selling doll of the late 40's and 50's
due to an advertising tie in to the Toni Home Permanent made by Gillette
She was a very expensive doll to buy due to the licensing fees Ideal had to pay
She had a groundbreaking nylon wig that could be styled and set over and over
Toni initiated the era of hair play with dolls
In the late 50's Gillette licensed the Toni name to American Character for
another doll with high heels.

Rare Collectibles & One of a Kind Irreplaceable Items
We never alter, repair or replace any of the features
on our bears & animals as we like to leave them
in the original condition for our collectors
We feel replacing them with anything from a different era
makes them no longer original or authentic
All of our bears are heavily researched for hours by our staff
with a massive library of Bear Collectors Identification Guides & Books
Bear magazines and Internet research
Everything we can find that pertains to that particular bear we then type in the description
We do our utmost to correctly identify and price all of our items accordingly.
Professional photographers work to take as many pictures as possible
to help show the buyer what they are purchasing.
The bears are then carefully packaged and put into storage
where they are not removed until purchased and shipped.
