Recently, a close friend of mine was in an accident, where her son was severely injured. Please read his story here and lend any support you can!


Carlson Dolls are plastic dolls dressed in a variety of costumes, primarily relating to American history, including numerous Native American Tribal attire and American Period dress, including specific historical figures. There are are also dolls in various international attires and female dolls for the different months.Carlson also produced small leather tipis.


I bought one of these on a trip to Mt. Rushmore when I was about seven, and collected several on subsequent travels from the mid eighties to the early nineties. I recently found a few of these dolls at antique and thrift stores, and wanted to know more about them, but have found very little information available online about them, other than sales. There is a mention of them in this blog. Given the overall lack of information available on the internet, I have tried to compile what I know here. If you have any corrections or additions you would like to make, please let me know. I susalluy only update the page every few months, but I do update. If you are interested in selling your dolls, please consider eBay or Craigslist; I am not looking to buy dolls from individuals at this time.


If you are looking to find out how much your doll is worth, all I can really suggest is looking at completed auctions to see how much similar dolla have sold for. Common Indian dolls usually go for $10-12 dollars, some fo the rarer dolls like the conquistador might go for $30 or more. Most of these dools are not worth too much, though. If I see one of these at an antique shop for $20, I generally feel it is overpriced. Please don't ask me to price your dolls. If you are looking to sell, I suggest listing them on eBay with a low start price, and letting them to find thier own price, so to speak.


I had been unable to find virtually any information regarding the company which manufactured Carlson Dolls on the internet, until, because of this webpage, I was contacted by David Carlson, the son of company founders Ray and Ann Carlson. Carlson Dolls was started in 1946 by Ray and Ann Carlson in Maple Lake Minnesota. The plastic dolls featured on this page did not appear until the early 1950s. Prior to that, the company produced skookum dolls. These are the dolls which have a plaster head and a painted wooden body, with a blanket wrapped around it to make it appear the doll had folded arms. These dolls had several different faces from young to old; the ladies had a little baby on the back (just the head). If you see one with a pair of twins, Carlson the only company to produce that. These early dolls were sold by the Arrowhead Company.


The company also produced Minnetonkaa Moccasins for Arrowhead, as well as a line of animal salt and pepper shakers. In the early 1960s they also made stuffed animals and then ski boots. These other lines fell off due to Japanese imports, and by the late 1960s, the company was strictly dolls.


At the height of their production Carlson Dolls produced some 500 different dolls, and had 100 employees in their three factory locations (two in Maple Lake, Minnesota and another in Milan Minnesota), the factory in Milan being used primarily to produce the Eskimo dolls. After the death of Ray Carlson, their son Lowell took over the company, with David being in charge of West coast sales. In 1997, production was closed down when they could no longer compete with cheaper (and in my opinion, lower quality) Chinese copies.


Carlson dolls were primarily sold at tourist locations in the United States, such as National Parks and sites of historic interest, and gift shops associated with these locations.



These Dolls come in several different body types:

 


Carlson Comanche Princess Doll


7.5” Regular Dolls: These Dolls are about 7.5 inches tall, and have movable heads and arms. They have soft hair wigs glued to the head. They have sleepy eyes which open and close.


 

 


Carlson Buffalo Hunters Princess Doll


7” Child Dolls: These dolls are the same height as the regular dolls, but have thicker bodies and larger rubber heads with childlike faces. They have painted on eyes.


 

 


Carlson mohawk Brave Doll


6” Pudgy Dolls: These Dolls are about 6 inches tall, and have movable heads and arms. They have soft hair wigs glued to the head. These dolls are typically used for Native American “braves” dolls.


 

 


Carlson Toddler Indian Doll


4” Toddler Doll: These Dolls are about 4 inches tall, and have movable heads and arms. They have rooted hair and a rubbery body. They have painted on eyes. Some of the larger dolls may use these dolls as papooses.


 

 


 


2” Papoose: These are solid plastic dolls usually used as papooses on the 7.5” dolls.


 

 


Carlson Sacajawea Doll


Large Regular Dolls: Carlson also made larger dolls, many with the same costumes found on the 7.5” dolls, but with greater detail. These dolls are around 11 inches tall, and have soft wigs glued to the head. They have faces similar to the 7.5” regular dolls with sleepy eyes which open and close. They carry the same 2” papooses as the 7.5” dolls.


 

 


Carlson Cheyenne Princess Doll


Large Child Dolls: These dolls are around 10.5 inches tall, and have rooted. They have child-like faces, and with sleepy eyes which open and close. They carry the same 2” papooses as the 7.5” dolls.

 

 


Carlson Sioux Princess Doll  


Very Large Dolls: There were also some dolls in the 18 in range. These may be mounted on cradleboards as full-size baby dolls, or dressed in costume. They have more child-like faces than the regular 7.5” dolls. They have rooted hair and sleepy eyes which open and close. They carry the 4” toddler dolls as papooses.

 

 


 


Very Large Porcelain Dolls: These may be mounted on cradleboards as full-size baby dolls, or dressed in costume. They have more child-like faces than the regular 7.5” dolls; their skin is also a lighter tone than the plastic dolls.These were sold at gift shows but not put in catalogs; these were high end items with a price mark around $300 retail.

 

 


 


Purses: Carlson also made several Leather purses with built-in dolls. The few I have seen have the 6” pudgy dolls in them, but I believe there may be ones with the 4” of 7” dolls as well.

 



The dolls with hard bodies were manufactured by Carlson, and in fact, sold some of their bodies to other companies, who costumed and sold the dolls under their own labels. Likewise, soft-bodied and porcelain dolls were purchased by Carlson from outside sources, then costumed and sold under the Carlson label.


The costumes on the dolls can vary greatly… the same dolls may be re-issued with variations in costume (as in several versions of George Washington) or may be produced at the same time in many colors or patterns, such as the Pioneer lady, which may have different hair & eye colors and different dress materials, even in the same shipment. I have listed variations which I either own or have seen photographs of, though there are undoubtedly many, many more variations than I could go into here.


This is a list of known Carlson dolls, collected from sales and photos on the internet, as well as the handful of dolls I have. There are a number of American Indian dolls from Carlson for which I have no name, so have been listed as “Indian Doll.” There are links to dolls for which I have photos, unfortunately, I do not have access to all my dolls at the moment, so have photographed what I can. If you wish to contribute photos or information on Carlson Dolls you have, please contact me. Note that there are many dolls which are similar to Carlson dolls, such as Storybook dolls and other American Indian dolls. I am not looking to add information on dolls form other manufacturers at this time, as this would simply be too overwhelming.
