Arrow Rubber & Plastics Corporation made thousands of hard plastic, rubber and vinyl dolls in the USA from the late 1940s, until sometime in the 1960s.  Edward Mobley designed dolls and toys for Sun Rubber, later for Arrow Rubber an can be noted from his name in their respective markings.

Arrow is a doll and toy maker mainly known for knock off or look a likes, that were reasonably priced and of fairly good quality dolls.   They also made rubber animal and small dolls squeak toys.
