This album will show both Schwabinchen and Willy Wildebras because they were made from the same mould. Schwabinchen is named Bild-Lilli's little sister because the same cartoonist Reinhard Beuthien draw both Bild-Lilli and Schwabinchen. Bild-Lilli was for Bild Zeitung and when he later moved to Munich to work for Abendzeitung he created Schwabinchen. Hausser created the Bild-Lilli doll and when 3M wanted to create a Schwabinchen doll they had to come up with a very different doll as Hausser owned the patents for Lilli. I learned from a collector in Holland that 3M later sold both the patent and the mould for Schwabinchen to «’T POPPENRIJK »in Holland, they named their doll Willy Wildebras and the only differences are that Willy is unmarked and that she is rooted different. In Sweden Schwabinchen was sold under the name Betty and my 2 dolls and the outfits were all found in Sweden.
I have learned from doll friends that there was a doll called Gitta and that some of the outfits I was told were made for "Betty" in Sweden are actually for Gina, a boxed doll I have seen clearly shows these outfits so they have been moved to the new album I made called Gitta. I also found out I have a Gitta doll, also that was believed to be made for Åhlens in Sweden so she will be moved as well.
Dette album vil vise både Schwabinchen og Willy Wildebras fordi de er lavet i samme form. Schwabinchen kaldes Bild-Lillis lilles'ster fordi samme tegner - Reinhard Beuthien - har lavet begge figurer. Lilli blev lavet til Bild Zeitung og da han senere flyttede til München for at arbejde for Abendzeitung tegnede han Schwabinchen. Hausser fik lov at lave Bild-Lilli og da 3M senere ville lave en Schwabinchen-dukke måtte de komme med en ny idé, da Hausser ejede rettighederne til Bild-Lilli. Jeg har fået at vide af en Hollandsk samler, at 3M senere solgte både Schwabinchen patent og form til det hollandske firma "'T POPPENRIJK", de kaldte deres dukke Willy Wildebras og den eneste forskel der er på dem er, at Willy er umærket og at de har forskellig frisure. I Sverige blev Schwabinchen solgt som Betty og de 2 dukker og det tøj jeg har er fundet i Sverige.
