No nipples? I call her fanette or Areola 51. Souvenir from Miami (probably not south beach) about 60 y/old. You crank it and she hoochie koochie gyrates.

What Allee has to say about this:
The more I look at this the more I think I had one of these when I was a little girl. I remember the way the rubbery body twisted as you turned the crank. I was so intrigued with Miami anyway living in freezing cold Michigan and being obsessed with palm trees.

I love that this is called “Fanette”. What on earth does that have to do with anything?!
