The Patsy dolls were made of a material called composition. Composition is mostly a mixture of wood pulp and glue. Manufacturers added other ingredients according to their own unique recipes. The dolls were then painted. Composition dolls have a warm glow to them. “Compo” dolls were eventually supplanted by the hard plastic dolls common by the 1950s.
