1966 Effanbee Doll, Chipper Touch of Velvet with Tags and Box, collectible toy, 1960s vintage doll, NRFB

This is Chipper an Effanbee Doll wearing a gorgeous dress called Touch of Velvet.
She is in pristine, mint condition, has been in storage in her original box and has never been played with.
She has beautiful golden blonde rooted hair pulled back in a ponytail tied with a red velvet bow. (The curls in her ponytail are the slightest bit flattened from being in a box all these years).
Her sleepy eyes are light blue, she has light pink lips and lightly rosy cheeks.  Her long dress is white cotton and red velvet with a ruffled collar and a pretty red velvet bow around her waist.  She is also wearing white velvet flat slip on shoes and white cotton underpants.
This vintage doll is very clean and all of her joints are tight. She is made of plastic and vinyl and is 15 ½” tall. The back of her head is stamped “Effanbee 19©66”.
Her gold heart-shaped wrist tag says “I AM Chipper an Effanbee Doll that will Touch Your Heart, Since 1910” on the front. The back of the tag says “I am just one of the many members of the beautiful Effanbee Doll family, created by expert dollmakers who have been making exquisite dolls like me for over 60 years. Love me, take good care of me and I will love you. And because I am an Effanbee Doll, I’ll be your friend for a long, long time. EFFANBEE ® Doll Corp. 200 Fifth Ave., N.Y., N.Y. 10010 Made in U.S.A.”
The box is in nice condition, it is blue and pink striped on the sides and the lid has its celophane intact with blue edges. The lid reads “An Effanbee Durable Doll” and at the bottom “Effanbee means Finest and Best”. In the upper right corner there is a sales sticker that reads “$48”. There are a couple of small tears in the cardboard around the celophane, but it is very clean with major stains or marks. It measures 8 ½" wide, 4 ¼" tall and 17 ¾" long.
