Note: 1930's dolls were of composite material made by the Ideal Doll Co, 1970's ones were vinyl mainly by Ideal, and recent ones are commonly porcelain made by Danbury Mint. The original composite dolls had "sleeping" eyes, or "flirting" eyes which moved sideways. They are the most valuable in good condition but often suffer eye deterioration, surface crazing, or mould which slowly destroys the material. Top prices are paid for dolls with original box, dresses, tag, and pin

Shirley's own collection of more than 700 dolls was given to the Stanford Children's Hospital in 1972 for display in reception
