Vintage pictures of children with identifiable toys are such treasures!  This 1939 photo of a beautiful, raven-haired tot with her Pinocchio doll is certainly a find!

The doll shown in the photo was made by the Ideal Doll company around 1939/1940 to coincide with the release of the Walt Disney Film.  As many of you know, the Ideal Doll company is most famous for their best-selling, authorized Shirley Temple doll. 

Many toys were made in the likeness of characters from this classic film including a Pinocchio wind-up toy by Marx,  paper masks of Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket, and Jepedo, and bisque figures of characters from the film.  The Knickerbocker Toy company also made a wooden Jiminy Cricket Doll that is as cute as a button!  I have included an image in the gallery!  Enjoy!
