Doll-A-Day 2017 #316:Worlds of Wonder Julie

  Today's doll is this girl.

She's Julie.

These are Julie's original clothes, except she is missing one shoe. I think she had socks as well.

Julie was made in 1987 by World's of Wonder,makers of Teddy Ruxpin and friends, and Pamela.

Julie has silky strawberry blonde hair,big blue eyes, and 'real' eyelashes. Unfortunately mine is missing most of her eyelashes.

Julie was the first interactive talking doll.

She operates on 4 C batteries. Of course, as is par for the course around here,we only have 3 C batteries, so I can't show you what she looks like going through her motions!

She responds to certain 'secret words',for example, when you say 'melody' she will sing.

When activated Julie opens and closes her eyes,her eyes move,and her mouth moves when she talks. She has soft, translucent rubber skin so her mouth can move. 

She responds to movement, light, and temperature,and recognizes voices. She 'knows' when she has been picked up,or when she is taken into a dark room. She has sensors in her fingers that allow her to 'read' special books made for her.

Julie had an entire wardrobe made for her,including pajamas and a night gown,each with matching slippers.

You can watch the original commercial for Julie HERE.

Julie is 22" tall.

That's it for today. See you tomorrow for another doll.
