Baby Tender Love

Several people have inquired about this doll lately so I wanted to get it posted for them. Baby Tender Love from the 1971 Sears Wishbook.

Awww, so cute.This doll has the sweetest face. I was a tomboy when I was young (having two brothers certainly helped), so I didn’t spend a lot of time with dolls. But there were a few, like this one, that caught my eye. Never did get her, though. 🙁


So sweet. Exactly the kind of doll a little girl envisions and I had one very similar a few years earlier – but like Martha, by this point I was playing in the dirt with Tonka cars, making roads and bridges lol!

well i have an original Baby Tender love African American girl doll from 1972, in which i have named Pee-Wee,lol. I am looking for another girl baby tender love but can’t find one…help me please.


Hi Ora and thanks for stopping by! I have no idea where to find one. Your best best is to try Ebay if you are looking for an online outlet. You can also try some antique stores in your area. Pee-Wee is a good name! 🙂


I am so happy you have shared this! I L-O-V-E-D my baby tender loves (I had three)!!! I now wish that I had kept them….Thank you again.
