Virga Dolls - Kim Dolls
Beehler Arts, Ltd. was based in New York City and marketed dolls during the 1950's. According to the book "Hard Plastic Dolls" by Polly and Pam Judd, dolls marketed under the Beehler, Fortune and Virga names were all manufactured by Ontario Plastics. In "Hard Plastic Dolls, II", the Judds report that Virga was a division of Beehler. The company also marketed dolls under the Kim label. All of these companies are best known for their 8" Ginny type dolls, but small high-heeled glamour dolls were marketed under the Beehler Arts, Kim and Virga names as well.
