Mary Lou was also the child of Buzzy Bee's creator (Maurice Scheslinger) and in fact slightly preceded Buzzy Bee. The first Mary Lou wooden dolls were sold in New Zealand from 1941. In the 52 * 7 minute animated series of Buzzy Bee & friends, Mary Lou is the town mechanic (the ever so slightly bossy older sister type).
In "Mary Lou's" Matt has carefully composed a matching pair of vintage Mary Lou dolls belonging to his children.
All of Matt's kiwiana series are handsigned and titled in pencil below the image.
