Regular price $0.00 Sale

Brother plays farmer with different faces for fun!

Grace Drayton’s cartoon characters brought joy to many children and their families in the 20th century and now, almost a hundred years later, her drawings are still popular today. Grace and her sisters grew up in Philadelphia. She was a prolific and accomplished artist, belonging to the most prestigious artist circles. She was actively drawing from 1904 until her death in 1936. She is most famous for designing the Campbell’s Kids and Dolly Dingle, although she painted in oils and was a student of Robert Henri.

Although Grace Drayton doesn’t mention his name in Dolly Dingle’s Brother Plays Farmer, it’s easy to become attached to him. Especially because she presents a lesson to children that a happy face is more appealing than a “Cry Baby Cry” face or a “Cross Bad Boy Face.” She gives us a selection of heads that fit over Dolly’s Brother’s head so his emotions change as often as you want them to.  There is even a farmer face along with clothing changes for play and a suit for Sunday.

  • Dolly Dingle’s Brother doll in a white undershirt and briefs, holding his kitty cat and wearing socks with tie shoes
