Martha Finley's Elsie Dinsmore comes alive in this unique eighteen inch all vinyl play doll produced in conjunction with Lloyd Middleton Dolls. Elsie Dinsmore comes complete with authentic Antebellum clothing (dress, petticoat, pantalettes, shoes and socks), miniature Bible (which she can hold) and one hardbound volume of the authorized version (unrevised) of the Elsie Dinsmore series of historical fiction books. Emphasizing traditional family values, your child's character will be enriched, as have millions since the 1860's.

This is the final catalog description from 2002:

Elsie Dinsmore™ Complete......Elsie arrives wearing her flowered dress in the authentic fashion of the 1840's. The white satin ribbon ties in the back to form a luscious bow. Her dress closes with snaps, not Velcro. Her eyelet trimmed petticoat and pantalettes have growth tucks and elastic waist. Her patterned stockings peek out above the white button-on shoes with a jeweled bow. Her dainty hands hold her very own Bible. Elsie has golden brown hair, hazel eyes, rosy cheeks and lips. She is available with a choice of one Hardcover book from the "A Life of Faith: Elsie Dinsmore" series.

Notes: 

This version of the Elsie doll is very hard to find and can go for $200 - $300 in very good to mint condition. The doll was sold by Vision Forum for $95 briefly in 2001-2002.
