Christmas Day I got mine - the same day she lost an eye (it wasn't working properly) and I ended up with 2 - the first one had nicer hair and said more!

I got mine on christmas day, I think it was in 1987 from my mother. I loved that doll but she eventually broke a few years later I pulled her out of my toy box and the top half of her head came off. I named mine Alicia.

i had one when i was little and ive been looking for one for my daughter. we were watching one brand new in box on ebay but i missed the end of the auction as i was out looking for other old toys at op shops. it sold for 62 us dollars but i found one at one of the op shops. not sure if it works but im gonna give it a go and if it doesnt i only paid 3 dollars for it. i think its had a haircut and its face could do with a clean but im soo happy i found it!!

I remember she'd ask you to feed her at times, and she'd also go to sleep. Did she go to sleep automatically or did you toggle something. Also, did she ever cry?

Mine was sooo adorable, had soft face, arms, and legs. She had blond pigtails, and wore a pink romper with I think yellow flowers. She looks like she was cuter than this doll. The sound of her mouth moving was almost as loud as the words coming out of her mouth, which were mostly "wa wa" and "ma ma" right? And you were supposed to "teach" her how to speak? Help me out here! zzzonkout@aol.com

When I was in kindergarden my friend brought hers to school. I guess it malfuntioned or something becuase it started talking and wouldn't stop. The teacher got so mad! LoL

I had this doll! Got it in 87, it had short blonde hair and a pink jumper. She worked perfectly for 10 years!! Found her in the garage in 97, and it still worked even though my parents had never changed it's batteries. It freaked me out, so I took the batteries out and I swear to gosh it still talked. I took it to the field across the street from my house and beat the crap out of it and it STILL talked. I thought it was possessed but then my mom remembered there was a "back up" battery supply in the middle of the doll somewhere. Does anyone else remember a back up battery???
Rebecca - December 19, 2008 - Report this comment
I can't remember if this is the doll I had or not. I remember mine would suggest games to play, and would say "You Choose." And in my young state, I could never figure out what "yhoochoose" was...

I got this the year I found out Santa wasn't real!! I was playing with my lovely baby talk & overheard my mum saying she'd looked everywhere to find it for me - but father christmas left it at the end of my bed!!!????..i was 8 and blamed this doll for it!
Anna - January 18, 2009 - Report this comment
I had this doll! I loved her when she was new, but after a while her hair got messed up, and I figured out how to push her eyes down into her head, and then she reminded me of a robot or alien. I don't remember what she said. I mostly remember her from when she was without batteries.

I used to play with this doll all the time! I had the 85 version and I just remember when I would have to go to bed and I couldn't get her to shut off so my parents had to take out her batteries but she would still make noise for a bit. Creepy! After that I just played with her, without the batteries at all!

OMG...I loved My Baby Talk doll. I had to have heart surgery when I was 5 and I wanted this doll so bad so my mom and grandfather bought her for me and gave her to me on the way to the hospital. I will never forget that doll. I really wish I could find another one, not sure what happened to mine.

I got mine at my 7th birthday and I hugged my parents like a million times. It was my number one gift! After a few years she started talking on her own in my closet "turn me over, turn me over" ... kinda freaked me out so I got rid of her LOL

I got my Baby Talk doll for Christmas in 1987 the year my brother was born and I was 6. I loved her and she was a nice suprise. I ended up getting rid of her aged about 12 or so when I outgrew dolls and had no space for them but she didn't work properly after the middle bit got taken out by my sister and left outside in the rain I was devastated. Does anyone know where I can get one to have at my house for my nieces to play with? - I live in England.

I got one of these doll for christmas back in the eighties. My brother and I would play jokes on each other with the doll, and would hide it in each others rooms. So when we would go to bed at night this creepy doll would either start talking from underneath the bed or the closet. It's been 20 years and it still works.( freaky ).. found it in the attic about a year ago, so i thought for one last hurrah the night before his wedding i had his fiance sneak it into the house and put her underneath the bed. Needless to say , he almost killed me when he found the doll...she still lives, and i'm waiting for her to show up at my house someday soon .. lol

I had a Baby Talk got it on Xmas day, my fav toy ever. Until my friend pulled her out my hand and ripped her arm off :-(
Hannah - October 15, 2009 - Report this comment
I LOVED this doll, today in an acting class I had to recreate my childhood bedroom and I went straight for her and burst into tears. She used to be dressed in one of my baby dresses, pink. I used to have her sleep in a cot at the end of my bed and get her to say goodnight then when I was eight my friends brother let us watch child play whilst babysitting and after that she had to be locked in the garage every night by my mum before I slept. I was scared of her only at night and I loved her still. My Mum threw mine away when we moved house without consulting me. Still can't forgive her. It's the worst thing I've lost.

We just found this doll after 22 years and we put a couple batteries in it and it still works. We used to terrorize our youngest sister with it by locking her in the closet with the doll. We thought it looked like Chucky from Childs Play- the way it said 'let's play' was especially disturbing. To this day our youngest sis will not let us forget how cruel we were to her. Nightmares and all!! Now that we found it at our parents over Christmas w/o her knowing, we are going to surprise her with the 'chucky doll' and do our best to bring back the old childhood memories! She will love us and the doll of course. This doll was and is the creepiest doll we have ever known-- what were our parents thinking. we would never buy a doll like this for our own kids.

Wow, she is so much scarier than I remember. I brought her in for my kindergarten show and tell class, and was pretty sure I had *the* coolest item for show and tell, then 3 other girls in class had brought their Baby Talk dolls as well. All my dreams were crushed after that day.

My sister and I had Baby Talk and she talked without batteries. I remember a girl on Jenny Jones who said the same thing. How did she do that. It's puzzled me for years and I had a dream about her last night. She was talking in my dream without batteries and then she talked like Regan in The Exorcist.

I got baby talk wen I was about 4 years old, I she did not work properly so we took her back and exchanged it for another, she was amazing, I remember when she use to say I'm sleepy then close her eyes and go sleep, I use to make every tip toe around!! then she wake up and say lets plap a game, close her eyes then pop them open saying peek a boo! and feeding her was annoying, she would always say more, more, more more, so many times! tho it was amazing how she moved her mouth, eyes blinked, the words she spoke! there was so many, like: I love you mummy, im sleeply, lets play a game, Im hungry, peek a boo......thinking back there wasnt that many but it was amazing at the time!!!! I still have her, hair matted, dont think I know anyone who managed to keep her hair the same. all the clothes, might be missing one shoe, and I have lost the bottle, though I still have the bib!!! Last time I tested her she still work, eyes, mouth and speach, hate the thought of her sitting in the Attic alone, so if anyone is serious about buying and promises to take care of her I might be tempted!!! Email me on gibbi_nikki@yahoo.co.uk with offers

I got Baby Talk for Christmas in '86 or '87. I loved her so much I think she went everywhere I went. I also, remember her talking without batteries! It freaked me out, I just saw someone's comment on here that said she had a back-up battery! That explains it. Just found one for my little girl, so excited!!

Toall you guys talking about Baby Loves To Talk, she is a completely different talking toy, Baby talk is like Talking Julie, baby loves totalk is kinda similar, but you teach her to talk as if she was an infant.

I got this doll for my 7th birthday and I adored it, and still do! It even kind of hurts when people say she's scary LOL. Since I got the dutch version (I live in Holland), I bought an english one a few years back on EBAY. They both work fine. I think it amazing that after 27 years, of all the dolls that you see on EBAY (or simular) most of them still work! Are there any people who know more about these dolls? I've searched Google in vain to find out more about these amazing dolls, as I think there could be a lot of interesting information about these dolls, like who created them (I know they were GALOOB's, but who's the person behind the animatronics?), how were they produced, how many different ones were produced, why did they stop making them (I guess to expensive), were there "other" baby talk items an accessories (I know ther were at least a few)? I've found pictures (besides the "original" one and the boy) of an caucasian baby with curly hair and one with dark hair, and an AA baby. And I know for sure that there were at least 4 different languages eg: english, french (le bébé de lansay) spanish (Bebi mia) and dutch (mine), I can imagine there are more... and I strongly asume that baby talk was "the same" as smarty bear Is there anyone who knows more about these dolls, or who knows who I could ask? Thank you!!!! xoscha@yahoo.com
