What happened to Dapper Dan?


My niece is going to be three in about a month, so I've been trying to decide what to give her for her birthday. In a flash of inspiration, I remembered the Dapper Dan doll I had as a child. Practice buttoning, zipping, tying on a doll, perfect! Sadly, it appears Dapper Dan has been redesigned in the past few decades. Maybe it's the hat, but there is something about the modern Dan that just seems wrong and even a bit creepy. I should see if my parents still have the old doll stored somewhere. I'm sure my niece would like it. Of course, that still doesn't help me with my gift. *sigh*

If you hurry, there is a vintage one for sale on e-bay for $4. I just checked. We had the Dressy Bessy. Chapstick doesn't come off of her lips, rather, it stains them. I'm just saying...
