SUPER RARE & RETIRED Daddy Long Legs Doll - Miss Lilly. Miss Lilly is being sold AS IS (please see all photos). The room key she used to hold in her hand snapped off...but I do have it and it can easily be re-attached with glue. She still has her certificate of authenticity attached.
Ms. Lilly is also autographed by Karen Germany.
EACH DOLL IN THE FAMILY OF DADDY’S LONG LEGS WAS DESIGNED BY KAREN GERMANY OF SOUTH LAKE, TEXAS, USA.

THIS UNIQUE WORK OF ART WILL BECOME A TREASURED KEEPSAKE IN YOUR PRIVATE COLLECTION. PLEASE ENJOY….
KAREN GERMANY, DESIGNER OF DADDY’S LONG LEGS DOLLS, WAS BORN IN TEXAS. SHE FIRST MADE PRIMITIVE DOLLS AS A HOBBY IN 1979 AND BEGAN SELLING THEM AT LOCAL ARTS AND CRAFT SHOWS.IN 1989 DADDY’S LONG LEG DOLLS WAS CONCEIVED AND BY 1992 WAS RECOGNIZED AS AN AWARD WINNING AMERICAN –MADE COLLECTIBLE DOLL. SINCE THEN, DADDY’S LONG LEGS HAS EARNED A FINE REPUTATION ACROSS THE GLOBE. THE ARTIST CLAIMS “THE REAL FUN IS IN CREATING A CERTAIN APPEAL WITH THE DOLL’S IMAGE, THE CLOTHING, THE TINY ACCESSORIES- ESPECIALLY HIS OR HER NAME”
Realizing that there was a void in the doll industry for good quality ethnic products, Karen developed Daddy's Long Legs dolls into a predominately African-American collection. This unique family of dolls quenched the thirst of many collectors for over eighteen years.
*Sadly, the company has retired Daddy's Long Legs® collection in July of 2003
Most of the dolls were made in the 1990s and Karen Germany would break the mold, making them collector’s items!
