Joy was a very fashionable little girl. I found this vintage newspaper insert from the New York Times with lots of toys that were available at Abraham & Strauss. Joy popped up throughout the catalog. Take a peak-
Joy was dressed in lots of cute outfits. I love the little bobbed hair cuts. I’ve never been able to find a Joy with bobbed black hair, although their is a black haired Joy with center parted long hair (she was dressed in a Spanish costume). Here are some more pics from the catalog:
Anyway, you get the idea. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

This is a nice find!
Right? Vintage toy catalogs are so precious! It’s interesting how children’s playthings have changed over the last decades…and sort of sad, too.
Thanks so much for posting these. I am always interested in these dolls and it’s fascinating to me to see that A&S had them made especially for them. I have the one in navy and the pinafore doll, but have only seen the ruffled top in dolls that are in terrible condition. Didn’t even know that was a RHD dress.
Yes, I love the old toy catalogs. It’s great to see how these dolls appeared in pristine, unplayed with condition. And most of the original clothing I have is in terrible condition as well. : )
