Product name Musical Ice Cream Vans and Lovely Dolls
Description The “Musical Ice Cream Car” resembles a large toy delivery van. It is bright red in color with brightly colored decals pasted on the front, sides, back, and top of the vehicle depicting ice cream treats and identifying the toy as a “Musical Ice Cream Car”. In the rear of the van is a crank mechanism to wind-up a moving scene which is displayed through a clear plastic window on the driver’s side of the van and the music box which plays as the van moves along the floor. The toy is also equipped with a pull cord that is stored in a compartment under the vehicle. The “Lovely Dolls”, Model D13/3 consist of three 5-inch plastic female dolls with rooted nylon hair (either blond or dark brown in color) with painted-on eyes. They are wearing one-piece brightly colored fabric dresses and plain panties. The “Lovely Dolls”, Model C1372 consists of two dolls (one 5 inches and one 10 inches tall) with rooted hair. The larger doll has eyes that open and close and cries when it is tipped over. These dolls are clothed in pastel-colored one-piece fabric dresses with plain white panties and socks. The smaller doll has painted-on eyes and is clothed in a brightly colored one-piece fabric dress with plain white panties and no socks.
