Not Molded Ply Creative Playthings Doll Stroller


I've been meaning to post this for a couple of days now, but truth be told, with an opening bid of $375, I kind of figured it wasn't going anywhere too soon.

The eBay seller of this unusual [not molded] plywood Creative Playthings toy pram speculates that it's from early in the company's history, maybe even the late 40s/early 50s, when CP wood toys were first finding their way into Marcel Breuer's modernist show house at MoMA.


Personally, I have no idea, but I'd think the logo should be useful for dating it. All I know is, it's the best-looking plywood doll stroller Creative Playthings ever made--except for all the rest.

It's in the 1964-65 catalog. And was replaced in the 1965-66 catalog by the round bottom molded ply doll carriage.

[which was designed by Gloria Caranica. And there you have it. Thanks, AB -ed.]
