This vintage doll was designed after a rattle my father had when he was little.
The vintage doll would make a great baby toy if you remove the bells.
You could create a loop at the top of the head, so that the toy can dangle from something.
You could put a teething ring through the arms, and then sew the together so that you have a nice teething toy.
The doll is 8 inches tall.
