This Toni doll has blond hair, blue "sleep" eyes, dark brown eyelashes and a closed mounth. She is dressed in her original baby blue dress with a "Peter Pan" style collar (rounded collar) trimmed with white lace edging and pink embroidery. The dress has short puffed sleeves, and a white petticoat is stitched in place at the inside waist of the dress. The front waist of the dress is trimmed with a piece of machine embroidered white insertion, over white satin ribbon; the ribbon continues around to the back and serves as the sash of the dress, tied in a bow, center back; two white plastic buttons complete fastening the back of the dress. Her blond hair is pulled back in a pony tail and tied with a blue velvet ribbon (different shade from that of the dress). She has pink "Mary Jane" style plastic shoes on her feet.

Toni dolls had hair that could be styled, and were linked by advertising to Toni home permanent waves. Dolls could come with "play" hair solutions for "play" waves.
