First butcher shops, now this. No, really, why were we not born in another era? They have the coolest toys. In 1959, America had the disaffected Marybel (also expressly termed The Doll That Gets Well), a doll that came with her very own medical supplies: crutches, bandages, casts, gauzes and adhesive tape. Plus sunnies to rock the doll-in-recovery look. We imagine the little trooper would have been quite a hit with sick kids waiting to get well.
