Finger Ding Dollies

Today I share with you my vintage "Finger Ding" dollies. By placing your fingers inside each leg you can make them walk, run, dance and leap! The four I have in my collection include: Millie Mod, Sally Ice Skater, Betty Ballerina and (Flower Kid) Li'l Rose.

They were made by Remco from 1966 to 1969 and were just 5-1/2" tall. They featured the same face as another Remco doll, "Pip". Each came with little shoes (or skates) but were flat and not able to fit on fingers so shoes are a rare find. Fortunately, my Li'l Rose came in her packaging and still has her shoes. Remco also made finger ding Monkees, Animals and an Adventure Boy. Fun!!

Find your own Finger Ding dolly on Ebay! Search for Finger Ding Doll. (There's lots!!!)

They're so sweet! I have one, and I love her cute face!
What are those pages you've photographed? Are they from a book?
