Guess What I Found?

While I was recently looking thru a bedroom closet I found this …


An old doll of mine. Still in the original box.

She is a little lumpy and settled but aren’t we all getting that way these days?
I got on the internet and found that she was made in 1963. She might actually be worth something if she talks.
Here goes nothing …

She still talks!
Apparently she is afraid of noisy boys!

Back to the shelf for another few years!

I wonder if my sister still has her Chatty Cathy?

    Very cool! That is so neat that you kept her and in her box. I wish I would have kept a few more things from my childhood. I bet she is worth something also but maybe not what she meant to you as a child :)
    She would probably love a new outfit made from Good Morning or Twirl fabrics.

    Barb, If you ever want to get her cleaned I have the prefect place to handle for you. I have my original Mrs Beasley Doll, with her original glasses and she still talks. Not as old of Chatty but I did get her given to me in 1975.

    How fun! This doll sure looks well-loved. I bet she brought back many happy memories!

    Aww she is adorable and loved!! My Chatty Cathy is long gone :( I grew up as the only girl with 3 brothers and 3 boy cousins and somewhere along the way she was used as target practice. My poor mother always wanted a girly girl so she could buy all the pretty dolls for me. Unfortunately if I played dolls the boys wouldn’t let me play!

    I had one of these!!! but my poodle chewed her face a bit…. I did the repairs.. I think I still might have her up with a few stuffed animals I have kept!
