Meet Buddy Lee! This 12 1/2 inch guy with the cute smile and clever looking eyes has quite some stories to tell. He started his career in the 1920s as a model displaying miniature versions of the clothes made by H. D. Lee Company and eventually he gained in popularity. At one time he was actually the second highest selling doll in USA!
