The Seaside Co. recently bought Laughing Sal at auction for $50,000, and plans to display her at the Beach Boardwalk amusement park this summer. The new owners, with help from digital technology, are even bringing back her original cackle, reportedly provided by a woman who was drunk when it was recorded.

It was located in an arcade on the main strip.
The Re-made one's neck is too thin, the head is a little too big her "Laugh lines" are different, There is a "Adams Apple" type fold is in her neck that wasn't there on the "Real" Head, & She is missing her light green hat (it's connected to her head & it would be Surgery to remove it). Her Hair is too long & stringy & the wrong Color Red. The Paint is too perfect to have been in The Beach air & Sun for 32+ Continuous years, Laughinh & Moving, The dress is weathered as are her hands but her head is 100% Perfect. Friday-Sunday the Park was running from 9:00Am till Midnight. (my Father worked for Whitney in the 40's) we always went to Playland we lived so close to it.*** This post was edited by Jeffery A 5/15/2004 12:29:44 AM ***
