Description
Small baby puppets. The head was nylon and looked almost like a potato, the body was terry cloth and came in pink or yellow if the doll was a girl and blue or green if it was a boy. The hands were also nylon and it came with a blanket with a hole in the middle and possibly a basket. You put it on your hand like a apuppet and stuck it through the blanket then held it like a baby.

I actually have one of these, and it's still in the box. My Mom gave it to me for Christmas one year, and it was one of my favorite dolls. It came with a basket and a blanket, mine has a yellow dress, so it's a girl. It actually comes with a really neat story too. A lady named Gabriella, who was a designer of children's clothing created them. She had a dream about a rainbow, with 7 bands of color. Each color represented a child with a flag of a different country. She helped the tiniest of the children after he had dropped his flag. She then knew that she was to create dolls for children of many different countries. She made the dolls to look like the tiny child, and she actually made the dolls for seven different countries. She chose the name "Goo Goo" for the dolls because it is the universal language of newborns!! These dolls are very rare, and hard to find, they were made in the mid 80's.

I found one of these dolls in original box never been played with for $4.75. I got this for my daughter to play with, it's a boy with the rainbow blanket and basket. I don't know if it has any dollar value, but if this is a rare doll i think I will let her play with it just sometimes and keep the box and baby certificate, it will be a nice treasure for her to keep.

I bought mine from a garage sale years ago, was just playing with it the other day for my grandchildren, and they got the biggest kick out of it. Then I saw the tag, says, "GooGoo Doll" (Not Little Sprout. They do look a lot alike though. It is the cutest puppet I have ever seen.

This puppet doll is sooo adorable...my SON loved it and it helped in cultivating gentleness and tenderness all boys should have a baby doll for that very reason and this is the perfect teacher....

I have one! A friend gave it to me about 20 yrs ago. She is in her basket with a blanket and pink PJ's. How much are they worth now, as times are tough.

I totally had one of these. My mom would entertain us by having the thing scream about being bald, it was hilarious. Lost it years ago :-(

This is the toy the band Goo Goo Dolls named themselves after. Odd, huh?

I love baby dolls of all kinds and I was so excited when I found 2 of these at a thrift store today. A boy and a girl still in the original box with the little certificates. The dolls were still attached to the baskets and had never been played with. $1.00 each. My little girls have not stopped playing with them today!

I still have my original baby boy from when I was 5 years old. Still in the box with both cards. One of the history and one with his ID. Also, he still has his blanket and lace for around his basket. Not a pull on the boys head! Ha ha! I love him!

Man I am having such a hard time finding one of these! I am trying to get one for my cousin who is expecting. She had a boy, whom we called "hand baby" and I used to baby sit her and 'hand baby' was the one that took care of her, this went on for years LOL. Now, she's expecting a little girl and I'm dying to find one for her...kind of like a hand baby revenge LOL. But still...I think it would be sweet...if only I could find one, gah!!

This 'electronic museum' has Goo Goo dolls on offer. Wikipedia etc. are useless as the band that took its name - no copyright issues? - overwhelms the original.
