Roberta 9" Walker & Roberta 7 1/2" Non-Walker
Roberta was one of the early companies to use hard plastic. By 1950 they offered a rich line of plastic character dolls in many sizes and baby dolls with plastic heads and latex or vinyl bodies.
Roberta's history is of selling dolls of very uneven quality. Many of their dolls were cheap imitations of more expensive dolls. Others were quite excellent.
To fill the "Ginny-type" market niche, Roberta sold 8 1/2-or-9 - inch tall "Roberta Walker" and a smaller (7" - 7 1/2") strung (non-walker) doll that is identical to Doll Bodies Products' Mary Lu with unique molded-on slippers with a bow.
