Big Dreams Of The Big-Eyed

You've heard of Big Eyed Art, right? I never owned any big-eyed art, but I did have a crying basset dog bank that I sorely want back.

(Feel free to bid on it and send it to me.)

But did you know there was also a big-eyed doll in the 60's -- complete with tear?

Little Miss No Name by Hasbro Toys (1965) was designed by Deet D'Andrade. Little Miss No Name wore a burlap dress, had a hand made for begging, and that large plastic tear... I'm guessing I never heard of her because few little girls wanted to play adopt the homeless begging orphan (Little Orphan Annie had a lovely red dress -- and too much spunk to let herself go like that). Fewer still wanted to plan & play a day in the life of a pitiful waif (also probably why the Kate Moss dolls never came to fruition).

But I want her.

I'm guessing when I find her, she'll be more expensive that replacing my old retro sad dog bank... But it won't stop me from fancying the two, together, in my office.

It's better to have big dreams of big eyed art -- and be left with a giant plastic tear -- then to never have dreamed at all.
