As far as I can find, she was produced in 1965.She's a pull string singer.Apparently she sang nursery rhymes.Mine is missing her string.
I rescued this doll at a yard sale run by a very grouchy lady who didn't seem to want to come out of her house.All the stuff was on tables in the yard, and I think it had been out there for more than a couple of days. A lot of it was wet.The doll was pretty grungy, but she seemed to need me. She cleaned up pretty well.
|She still needs a little work on her eyes.|
She originally came in a red dress with musical notes printed on it in white, white anklets and red shoes. She also had a red ribbon in the right side of her hair. She's about 17" tall.
|It's hard to see them because they have gone gray (Don't we all?!), but she does have freckles.|
She was fairly dirty, but she cleaned up nicely.Her outfit needed laundered too. It could do with a pressing, but I tend to be remiss in that area alot of the time. I don't even iron my own clothes any more.
You know, I like this doll, but looking at these pictures I'm starting to get a Marty Allen thing from her.
|Old comedian Marty Allen in the 60's. Apparently he's 91, and still working.|
|Tiny C. Baby.: "Did you hear what she said about me?!"|
|Tiny C. Brother: "I may be grungy, but she never said I look like Marty Allen."|
Tiny C. Baby: "I can't believe she said that!"

I kind of expected Singing Chatty to be more the size of regular Chatty Cathy.
And while we're here, another comparison: the difference between soft face and hard face Chatty Cathys.
|Soft face Chatty in the middle.|
The soft face girl seems to have a bigger head, with chubbier cheeks.
That concludes Chatty Week. See you tomorrow for another Skipper Saturday.
