Buddy Lee dolls were made from 1920 to 1962, as an advertising item, for the H.D. Lee Company, Inc. Garment Manufacturers. The first dolls were dressed in Lee overalls and displayed in a Minnesota department store. Because Lee made uniforms for large companies, such as The
Coca-Cola Company, a Buddy doll was made that had him dressed as Coca-Cola route salesman. The uniform was identical to what the Coca-Cola route men wore, down to the hat, patch, and bow tie! Buddy Lee is 12 ½ inches tall and has eyes that glance to the side – he was even seen peeking at Jamal one day.
