Granny Comment:

How many of us had Chatty Cathy dolls? How about Thumbelina, Tubsey, Cheerful Tearful, Baby First Step.... the dolls of the late 1950s and early 1960s were the best. I have seen reproduction or new issues of these dolls but nothing beats the originals.

I my uncles started this company together. Their names were George and Charles Collis. The company was sold in the early 70's and Charlie started Princess House in 1963. Princess House is also a home party plan company that is still in business.
