True I Love Lucy fans will rave over this addition to the Mattel Celebrity Doll series, featuring Lucille Ball in one of her most memorable roles as Lucy Ricardo. This doll commemorates the original September 15, 1952 episode, “Job Switching,” in which Lucy and pal Ethel set out to find work, defying Ricky and Fred’s assertions that “women weren’t meant to work.” Although Lucy doesn’t do much to disprove her husband’s assumptions, she tickles the funny bones of American viewers by trying. She and Ethel are eventually hired to work on a candy-making assembly line, where the antics begin.
This Lucy doll dons the very same dress uniform and hair cap she wore in the series. Her accessories include pale pink pumps and a single strand pearl necklace with matching earrings. She grips the notorious chocolates that cost her her first real job (a spare set of doll-sized chocolates come in the manufacturer’s box with Lucy). Collectors will be amazed at the doll’s striking resemblance to the real Lucille Ball–absolutely a dead ringer. Her exquisite makeup, brilliant red hair, long eyelashes–even her painted-on wedding band–make this a dream for collectors of Lucy paraphernalia
