Barbara Ann Scott  

"Barbara Ann Scott was born in Ottawa, Ontario, on May 9, 1928  
Her first skating assignment came when she was 6 years old 
 and she skated as Raggedy Ann in the Ottawa Skating Carnival. 
 In the following years, 
she won many championships, culminating in the 1948 Olympic gold medal. 
 In 1942, Barbara Ann Scott of Ottawa became the first female figure skater 
to land a double lutz jump in competition  

From 1948-1954, the company produced the Barbara Ann Scott doll in her skating outfit. 
She was also a very popular doll. 
At one time, almost every little Canadian girl had her on her Christmas list. 

The composition Barbara Ann Scott skating doll was 15" tall. 
In later years the Reliable Toy Company would become famous for its plastic toys, 
but the Barbara Ann Scott doll continued to be made of composition. 

The Barbara Ann Scott Doll, made after her 
1948 Winter Games triumph at St. Moritz, Switzerland, 
remains a prized possession of admirers and collectors alike. 
She was honorary chair of the 2006 world championships in Calgary 
and her autograph was the most coveted by fans of the sport during her visit" 

Reliable Toy Company of Toronto 

"In business since 1920 under the ownership of Alex Samuels, 
Reliable was the largest toy manufacturer in the British empire 
and had become famous for its many different dolls. 
Its most famous doll was the Shirley Temple doll for which 
Reliable held the Canadian license. 
Reliable manufactured composition Shirley Temples in many sizes in the 1930s. 
The company was famous for its attention to detail and its quality products"
