A plastic doll dressed as a Scotsman. A cardboard label tied to his right wrist reads 'Scottish Doll - tartan, kilt, 124 1969'. He has painted facial features with open and shut blue eyes, and blonde mohair hair. He is jointed at the shoulders. He is wearing a kilt made from red, green, black, white and yellow tartan, decorated at the front with a tiny gold-coloured metal safety pin, a white cotton shirt with a tiny piece of lace at the front neck, and a black velvet jacket, edged at the cuffs with white lace. Underneath he has pants made from the same tartan. His white socks and black shoes are painted on, his socks edged with multicoloured braid. On his head is a black velvet tam-o-shanter which has a black tape edging, the ends of which hang over the top of his jacket, and a large red, nylon pompom on top. Over his left shoulder, and sewn in place both there and at the front waist, is another piece of tartan, in a square but folded into a triangle, decorated near the front point with a small, circular, silver-coloured and black metal brooch depicting a thistle.
Donated to the Museum of Childhood by Miss K Hall in 1991
