The Fisher Price Lolly Doll was a cloth children’s doll manufactured by the Fisher Price company during the 1970 and 80s.

 

Information

The Lolly Doll was marketed as ‘Baby’s first doll’, and manufactured to be safe for infants. The dolls were completely washable, contained an internal rattle, and were often used as teething objects.

There were two versions of the doll, one for girls and one for boys. The ‘Lolly’ doll was made from pink gingham, and wore a matching pink dress and hat with a ruffled white brim. The ‘Cholly’ doll was made from blue gingham, and wore a plain blue vest with a rounded collar and a matching peaked cap.

The dolls were introduced in 1975, and manufactured for around 10 years (although no official discontinuation date exists). Today they are fondly remembered by generations of adults, and have become popular with doll collectors.

To identify genuine examples, the dolls will feature the following ,anufacturer’s numbers on their labels:

  • Lolly Doll: #420 1975
  • Cholly Doll: #419 1977

Value of Fisher Price Lolly Dolls

Due to their common use as a teething object, combined with regular washes, Lolly and Cholly dolls in good-to-mint condition can be difficult to find.

Examples which have never been played with or washed can be found for around $30 - $60 on internet auction sites such as eBay.
