"Marybel Gets Well" Doll

A young girl on crutches reaches for a "Marybel Gets Well" doll, which was produced in 1959. This doll, like many Madame Alexander dolls, could serve important emotional and educational purposes, teaching a child about caring for others or acting as a helpful companion to one struggling with an illness.
