|She's wearing her original outfit, minus her booties.|
|Yesterday's doll of the day was this Chatty Cathy. Today is her sister Chatty Baby. I got both from their original owner. It's a Yard Sale Tale.|
This Chatty Baby is so minty.The lady who owned her as a child preferred her cars and trucks to dolls.
She has such a clean face, with pink cheeks and lips.
|Her hair is shiny and soft,and her clothes are so minty too. (Except maybe for those saggy underwear...) She even has all her eye lashes.|
|Like Chatty Cathy, she has those cute little teeth.Sometimes they are missing, but you can buy replacement teeth. Hey,they're over 50, ok? Lot's of people over 50 buy replacement teeth.|
|She has her original booklet too.|
Chatty Baby was introduced in 1962, the same year that I was.Unlike Cathy, who came in several hair colours throughout her 'life', Chatty Baby was only ever available as a blonde or a brunette.Like Cathy, there was also an African American version available.They had the same head mold and were just made with brown vinyl.
|She has 'decal eyes'.|
She measures about 18" tall. My doll no longer talks, but, like Cathy, she is a pull string talker.
Tomorrow we'll have a look at Tiny Chatty Brother, one of my childhood dolls.
