1998. New with tag and mini Little Golden book. A Bass Rankin and Holiday classic! Boot vinyl for these dolls (and Santa) was too thin spray on latex that deteriorates over age but comes off smoothly leaving a slightly shiny cloth boot. This doll is unaffected by the now missing vinyl and the boots are now of the cloth variety. The picture shows the boots with latex.
Though we don’t have the official numbers on the very limited release of these CVS store only 12″ dolls, we do have the figures for the much smaller beanie dolls (approximately 26,000 of each character COUNTRY wide!) and based on our in person experiences we would put the common 12″ doll releases in the 15,000 or less country wide and probably half of that for the rarer dolls. The larger dolls sold out often times the day they arrived.
