Very special and hard to find Wee Willie Wand elf or pixie doll from 1949-1950. This elf was made for the Wolf and Dessauer Department Store in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It is a toy unique to the store that was based on a character who would entertain children while they were waiting in line for Santa Claus.

A local Southern California designer named Beatrice was contracted to make the dolls that are based on Wee Willie. These dolls were handmade and one-of-a-kind by this small start-up company that soon after became the Mattel Toy Company.

He stands up on his own holding out the silver tinsel wand that sparkles and shines. The original paper label is still attached, a wonderful bonus and in such good condition. It reads:

Wee Willie Wand
Works Christmas Magic

The lime green and magenta suit is made of soft felt, draped over a bendable wire body. The collar is metallic gold crinkle ribbon, the feet and hands are hard rubber. The head looks to be bisque ceramic, hand painted with the sweetest expression and big eyes. A lock of gold blond hair sweeps across the forehead. Wee Willie measures 5 inches tall to the tip of the cap.

Each doll was handmade, not mass produced, and this one is in great vintage condition. The colors are still bright, his face clear and unmarked. The silver tinsel wand is straight and strong, the original paper label excellent. There appears to be dried glue which has aged to brown and is peeking through the pant bottoms where they attach to the feet. This is not unusual for glue that is over 70 years old!

This Wee Willie Want pixie is so very special and a bit rare. Makes a wonderful addition to any doll or Christmas collection.
