Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Big Effen Bee (Matt McGinn)
Subject: RE: Does anyone know the Effin Bee story?
Effin Bee. That rang a very large bell, but it didn't have anything to do with a song or an insect. It took a few moments for me to dredge it out of my memory.
In the late 1930s, I was a little squirt. My older sister (by two years) was given a wonderful doll by a friend of the family. Mary was ecstatic! It was an Effanbee doll, about the size of a toddler, complete with real hair and a whole trunk full of clothes. Mary spent many an hour playing with this doll, dressing it in different outfits. Great gift for a little girl!
It was called an "Effanbee doll," made by the F & B toy company, I believe.
Just a little nostalgia trip. Now back to our regular broadcast.
