Vintage Eskimo Emotion Doll

vintage rubber 3 face eskimo doll brown
This Vintage rubber Eskimo emotion doll is one of my favorite pieces from my vintage rubber toy collection. It has a knob on top of its head and when you turn it, the doll changes moods!
It's either smiling and happy, crying and sad, or grumpy and being a sourpuss baby.

These type of 3 faced dolls were made in the early 1970s in both Hong Kong and Korea. And I have seen them with outfits in a few different colors.
Usually i keep him displayed with a happy face, but its fun to change its expression. What is your favorite look of this cute toy?

These are so cute. I have Native American ones. I didn't imagine they made them in a wide variety. These are exceptionally precious.
