"A Perfect Combination Gift for a Perfect Little Girl." The old wooden doll spent pleasant days in an attic with her mice and spider friends. Then little girls came to the house again, but the doll was too old and worn, and they let her drop out the window. The mice rescued her, dressed her up as you see, and left her with a good child who named her Rose. Open the box to find a real little doll lying next to her book. Gift condition.
