  1. Dear Nancy,
    I have a true set of BAPS dolls….my wife’s parents bought them for her when they were stationed in Germany, 1947-50. I have 15 different sets from the Black Sambo Family to the Black Forest Woman and more. I am getting ready to sell most of the set through eBay and wondered if you had any thoughts on that or comments. Thanks, Ron

  2. Hi, I have a complete set of the Little Sambo dolls, two tigers, mom, dad, sambo with umbrella. Please let me know if you can give me information on them. The tigers are orange. I have seen brown ones. Do you have any idea how I would find out the production history? They are currently for sale.

  3. HI Susan, Baps dolls and puppets were made from 1946-64. They did both the orange and the brown tigers. They were made in Germany and started out as a cottage industry. The name BAPS comes from the 1st 2 letters in HIlde BArtel’s last name (the designer and original maker) and the last 2 letters in Edith von ArPS’s name (the business lady behind the the company. For more in depth information you can order my book for $36.95 plus shipping by emailing me at bapsdollspuppets@gmail.com. Thanks for contacting me, Nancy

  4. I have a doll that I believe to be a baps, it came with some other dolls that I have already sold. Can not find anything on what character it is or nothing. It is a character with a paint pallete in one hand and a large paint brush in the other. Large black hat, large red boots and a cape like feature that is ladybug in appearance. Just seeing if you have any knowledge of anything like this. Thanks.
