The Abraham Lincoln celebrity doll depicts him as the 16th President of the United States. The doll was manufactured by Toypresidents, Inc. in 2003 as part of their Commemorative Edition.
It is a talking doll that has an actor imitating Abraham Lincoln’s voice saying 25 unique and authentic phrases like “Leave nothing for tomorrow, which can be done today” by pushing on the lapel of the black 1860s tailored Presidential suit. It also contains an official Toypresidents biographical pamphlet on President Lincoln and a black adjustable doll stand in the box insert. The 3 button batteries (LR44/L1154) are changeable. The doll is fully articulated at the major joints including wrists and ankles and very easy to pose.
The clothing is exceptional on this Toypresidents doll with hand tailoring details that are true to the 1860s time period. Extras like tiny buttons and snaps sewn on, removable clothes, elastic stirrups keep pants down and shirt tucked in make it both a collectors doll and a doll to be played with.
The doll wears a black polished cotton double breasted long suit coat with tiny black buttons on sleeve and front, closure by snaps. Matching black pants with snap in front fly and black elastic suspenders with suede crossover and looped attachments complete the outfit.
Under the coat there is a black satin double breasted vest, black silk bow tie with elastic attachment, white cotton collared shirt that open from neck to mid chest, and tiny decorative white buttons and closure by snap Black knee high boots that probably can be removed with some heat (there is a foot in there) cover the feet and the pants come off over the boots.
The doll’s underwear are plain white cotton boxers. Included is a black plastic top hat that has been hand carved inside to fit the head.
The dolls body has black molded hair and Lincoln beard.
