Robert Clay's Automatic Toy Company patented the 11" long crawling baby in the early 1870s.  A brass spring-driven mechanism controlled the arms and legs.  The head and limbs were made of painted plaster.  Technologically amazing for the time but totally failing as a cute and cuddly toy.  Set of two fridge magnets pictures doll clothed and unclothed.
