This Betty Boop doll was sent to Freda, a 9-year old living in England. When Freda came to Canada as a war bride, she brought her doll. The decal in front of her dress is a red heart bordered in black with the inscription “Betty Boop Des & Copyright by Fleischer Studio.”
It was donated to the museum in 1996.
