Today's doll is Charmin Chatty.
She's the tallest member of the Chatty Family, and she stands about 25" tall. She was introduced into the line in 1963. Oddly enough, even though she was produced after Chatty Cathy, Chatty Baby, and Tiny Chatty's, she had a more primitive talking system in a way. Instead of just pulling a string, she had a slot in her side and spoke when records were inserted into the slot and her string was pulled. It was more primitive in a way, but also more versatile: Charmin' could have more sayings added when you bought another outfit, which came with records that included sayings having to do with the theme of the outfit. For instance her nurse set, tea party set,foreign lands, shopping, birthday party,etc.
She came with either blonde or red hair.Her original outfit was a white sailor jacket, with a blue skirt with an attached blue and white striped shirt front, red knee socks, and saddle shoes.She also had cute black framed glasses, which unfortunately I don't have...YET!
I think her blouse and skirt are homemade, but they look cute on her.
I read something recently that compared Charmin to Skipper's friend Skooter. And you know what? They do look almost exactly alike!
Tomorrow we'll see a couple of 'Piggy' Chatty Cathy dolls, (They have double ponytails.) , and Singing Chatty,and check out a size comparison of all the Chatty Types.
