Description

These dolls were large with a plastic head and had an ice cream cone around their necks. They stood about 24 inches tall and came in a boy or a girl. The girls wore night caps and the boy wore a brown overall outfit with a cap. They were stuffed, with rounded feet and their left hand held the position universal sign for I love you. They had yarn hair in pink for the girls.

I had forgotten about my ice cream doll until I had a dream about it recently. I had to find them on the net but this is the only thing I found. Do you think they will bring them back like they did Rainbow Brite and Strawberry Shortcake? I would love to find one again!!

Yes i love these dolls, i have one just like the one in the picture, i was wondering if they were worth anything.

All, thank you for the thoughts about the Ice Cream Dolls. My family manufactured Ice Cream Dolls in the 80's. Village Toys unfortunately is not in business anymore. As for bringing them back manufacturing ceased on these dolls and there are no plans to bring them back. As for their value you can find them on eBay on occasion. You will have to check there for the prices. I truly hope that you enjoy them, and their memories as they bring back fond memories for us.

My aunt has an Ice Cream Doll and I really love that doll but she wont give it to me cause her late husband gave it to her. when i was about ten my mom found me a girl ice cream doll and i took it everywhere i went, until my brother got evil and riped the head off. I was so angry at him and i will never let him forget it. I am 19 years old and i really want one. Is there anywhere else to get one other than ebay?

James, a big hug and thank you for the ICE CREAM DOLLS!! I purchased 3 boy dolls for my sons, 2 of who are identical twins when at Knott's Berry Farm in the 80's and still think of that time as so special to our family. God Bless You

I got a pink haired girl on a trip to Wales in 1986, she was about 3 inches smaller than me, and I could barely carry her. She was with me always; my mom even put my car seat in the car so she could ride in it. I still have her.

We were visiting my husbands dad, and started going through his late mother's doll collection. I've always wanted an Ice Cream Doll when the first came out, but never seemed to get it..not even from Santa. So as we were going through his mom's collection, i see this doll wrapped in a see through plastic bag, but VERY dusty! It looked like an ice cream doll, but that was too good to be true. Once we opened the plastic bag, I felt like a young girl again whose dream of having an ice cream doll was coming true. It was indeed a boy ice cream doll that was well preserved in the plastic bag. It was like new! I love my new Ice Cream Doll!!

I had the girl Ice Cream doll I believe my uncle bought her from Taiwan for us many many yrs ago! She wears a peachy colour cap and a pink dress/apron, and a vanilla cone on a shoulder strap! Her hair is light brown made with yarn! I saw the boy Ice Cream Doll being used as part of the store display at Loblaws (a Canadian supermarket) and the display manager told me she bought him a few yrs back from a Salvation Army store and restored him to use as display.. sweet!

I use to be a foster mom and came across a girl we had 25 years ago. She loved these dolls and I found some on EBAY but really had to search hard..vintage dolls, ice cream cone dolls, whatever description it too. Anyway we got togethere and we both started to cry, remembering our time together. So thanks for the dolls and memories.

Hello. I just realized I have an ice cream doll. I own a children's resale & decided to look it up. It has a different dress than I have seen so I am not sure if it is original but it sure fits like it is made for her. She has pink hair but no cone. I just found that something was recalled on her in 1988 - you can check the cpsc.gov web site to check for recalls. I am guessing it was the cone hanging from her neck. Probably a strangulation hazard. Let me know if anyone is interested or I will just put her on ebay.

OK when i was a kid i had an imaginary friend named sister aim. i went on with her so much people actualy started to wonder if there was something there. so for one of my birthdays i got this for a gift and as soon as i opened it i yelled "sister aim what are you doing in the box!" and started yelling to get her out. it freaked eveyone out and they still talk about it to this day.

Oh my God, I had a little boy one! I had it from when I was about five until I was seventeen. I didn't play with it for all those years, but my little brother got mad at me and bashed its head on the pavement and broke it. It went through a lot of abuse. My mom once had to sew his head back on. I forgot all about the little ice cream cone around his neck! I miss him. :(

I had an Ice Cream doll growing up for about 5 years. My family and I had a really bad house fire in the winter of 86' in Skokie, Illinois and my doll didn't make it. I LOVED MY DOLL with all my heart and she gave me wonderful memories. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters and they always messed with me and would take my doll to either wrestle with it or hide it from me. When my siblings took my doll to mess with me they all ways'd managed to break her head off of her body. So i always had duct tape to put it back on. Sometimes i would use her head to defend myself but i wished i could have her now.

I got one of these dolls for Christmas when I was probably 3 yrs. old. I don't remember that she had an ice cream cone, but maybe I just lost hers. She was my favorite doll. When her neck broke, I was devastated. My dad used black electrical tape to wrap her head back on, and I still have my ice cream doll with her homemade "neck brace."

Does anyone know if they made miniature ice cream dolls? I had several small little plastic figurines, about two inches tall, all plastic that looked very similar to the full size dolls. Each had a different ice cream on their head. The two I recall were fudgesicles and an ice cream cone.

Hi, I am looking for a doll (there is an old 1 at my daughters playgroup) and I think it could be related to the ice cream doll. It has large soft body and a hard plastic star in its chest that when turned plays music and makes the feet sparkle. Even though it is old it still smells of strawberries and is better looking than the ice cream dolls and is dressed a bit like strawberry shortcake but is not strawberry shortcake. She has one hand that is holding a hard plastic ice cream (exactly the same as the ice cream dolls) that fits in her mouth like a dummy. My daughter just loves this doll and I would love to get one for her birthday - any ideas???

Found these on Ghost of the Doll and was speechless when I saw one sitting on a shelf at my local goodwill for fifty cents! Here's the catch, though -- mine is PORCELAIN. Her hair is yarn and the top of her head appears to have been broken off of a real Ice Cream Doll (actually found the doll with her hairdo on eBay) but the rest of her head and hands are porcelain. Her face appears to have been hand painted. Her body is plush. Does anyone else have a half porcelain ice cream doll? I'd love to know who made her so I can get her some siblings!

I had a boy and girl ice cream doll and I loved them (especially the pink haired girl). I wish I still had them.

This weekend my brother went and had to go clean out a neglected family storage. It's been untouched for close to 20 years, and most everything in there was ruined by termites, but in a bag they had set out were my two Ice Cream Dolls. I don't remember their names. I have a 4 yr. old daughter so you can just imagine her excitement. We've cleaned them up the best we can, his face is a little smashed and her hat is falling apart. It was nice to find them, they are so different than dolls now. My daughter loves them. Thanks you James and your family.

Does any one know of a site where you can see the whole set, and what their names were. I've not seen pictures of the girl that I have. She has red hair with a braid on each side, her dress is sort of rusty red plaid. He has blondish hair with blue overalls and a stripe shirt.

I have both boy and girl Ice Cream Dolls. They have since lost their cones. And sadly the girl has also lost her dress. Both these dolls were my Granddaughter's favorite playmates when she was just a wee little snip of a girl. Does anyone know where I can these items so that my dolls will once again be fully outfitted.

I want to Know if there is a place you can take these dolls to get repaired or re-done. Like a doll hospital or something. The hair on mine needs to be redone, when I was little I used to trim her hair and now I regeret doing that back then.

Posted two ice cream dolls by j Mitchell from 1983. New with tags. Been in storage and are super nice. Do smell a little of moth balls. But think they will air out nicely. Clothes and bodies super clean.
