in reply to hmm person above , the my buddy doll did come out before chucky and its my firm belief that the creators of chucky made the movie because they were driving us friggin nutz with that stupid my buddy and me commercial! and after the movie guess what? no more commercials lol and no more stupid "My chu.. Buddy and me"

I found out about a year ago that this doll IS Chucky! The boy in the first movie had a My Buddy doll, and he turned into Chucky. And the bride in 'Bride of Chucky' is the blonde-haired Kid Sister doll.

Scary, scary, creepy-looking, dolls. I never had one, but when "Child's Play" came out, I was sure from that point on that I would NEVER want one! I remember the songs from the commercials and the kids pretending to walk with the dolls or riding their Big Wheels with the dolls.

My little brother had one. After seeing the Chucky movie, we decided that we HATED that thing. That year at Halloween we shredded his clothes, covered him in fake blood, and hung him by the neck from a tree in our front yard. :oD Mom was not too happy that we wasted her money and ruined that doll. Erick & I were QUITE happy with our fine work! hahaha

all these stories bring back so many memories and keep me lol'ing! my brother had my buddy and i had kid sister when we were like 3&4 and once the chucky movies came out I threw my kid sister off the balcony of our 3rd floor apartment and we set the my buddy doll on fire in the back yard at grandpa's house. lol now i'm almost 25 and i'm so missing all the dolls i had as a kid, i wish we hadnt overreacted about the possibility of dolls coming to life. :) good times.

I LOVED my My Buddy doll, until i saw Chucky. After that I was convinced he moved around my room at night, and I gave him away. I immediately wished I hadn't though and felt like I'd hurt his feelings...

WereDog - May 20, 2009 - Report this comment
It's a common theory that these dolls' sales plummeted as soon as the Chucky movies came out. I believe it. While Chucky himself was based on Cabbage Patch Kids ( I saw an interview with the creator while watching the movie one night ) The My Buddy doll DOES look a lot like Chucky. Frankly I think if the theory IS true then Chucky did the world a favor. This thing gave me the creeps before I'd even heard of Chucky.

Does ANYONE know or have a black/African-American My Buddy Doll they would like to part with? I have space for one more doll in my collection and I really want it to be that particular one. I'm looking for an original (removable hat, shoes, shirt); not the cheap remakes in the 90s.

I'm looking to buy a MY BUDDY doll. I have looked everywhere for a nice one, and the ones on ebay looked welfare. I need one that's white, dark hair, brown eyes, and needs to still have his origional shoes and cloths. If anyone can help or has one in good condition they want to sell please contact me at kmpsaysfml@yahoo.com It would be greatly appreciated, the price is negotiable, depends on how well of condition the doll is in. We're willing to pay alot of money for this doll though.
Andy - September 26, 2009 - Report this comment
I had one of the originals. I don't have good memory of my early times with it, but I do remember how mine lost his clothes and I had to dress it in baby clothes. I even remember cutting his hair. The sad thing though is that my brother was scared of the Child's Play movies and my stepdad threw my My Buddy doll away, without me knowing he did it. I only found out a few years ago that it was him, and why he did it. Three Christmases ago, my mother bought a 90s version and gave it to me for keep's sake, which is cool. I'd like to pass it down, when I have kids (I'm 23, by the way). A funny tidbit is that I'd always get annoyed at how my family found it amusing to joke that my name was the same as the boy from Child's Play, and that I also had a similar doll...You can only guess why my brother was always scared!

I just got one of these (vintage) at a toy swap for my little boy. The tag says 1986 - well before 'Chucky' came out. Chucky was certainly inspired by the 'My Buddy' doll, despite what they may claim. Chucky looks a lot more like 'My Buddy' than a Cabbage Patch doll, coveralls, striped shirt... I still think it's a cute doll though.
julia - December 30, 2009 - Report this comment
These stories of the movie ruining the doll are hilarious. A friend had one and after the movie, she took it out of her room and her brother would torment us with it saying it was chucky. The makers of the movie just do not want to be sued. The character is clearly modeled after the my buddy doll. I'd place my bet that the writers reacted to a doll being marketed to boys in this manner. It does not look remotely like a cabbage patch doll. Going on all these stories, it seems likely the sales dropped after the movies. By the way, said friend never removed one single cabbage patch doll from her room after this movie.

I had forgotten about this doll and the commerical until my husband starting referring to our new born son as "Buddy" then the song came back in full force. We're trying to find a doll for him on ebay but don't know if I want a reminder of Chucky in the house.

I always found these dolls to be very creepy even before Childs Play was released. My next door neighbor had one and it would always sit on his bed. Maybe it was that weird multicolored shirt and overalls, that perfectly cropped hair and freaky painted on smile on his face, or maybe it's the fact that he was biggest doll I had ever seen at the time coming in at what had to be a good 2ft tall!! Well I never touched the damn thing and was happy to see a movie come out and finally wipe them off the map forever. Though I must admit I do still enjoy that jingle, it'a catchy as hell.

My paw-paw got me one of these when I was around 5 or 6 and my parents got so mad at me cause I hated it after my grandparents drove all the way to our house to give it to me. I despised the doll so much I can remember tearing his sewn-on denim cap lol. This toy def. corresponded to the "child's play" movie, If you watch the first one you can see that the actual chucky doll in the movie is an off-shoot of my buddy and all the kids wanted them lmao you really were cool if you had one of these back in the day, but it wasn't worth the torture when you were trying to get to sleep and you just know that doll is in the closet working like macgyver to open the door and get you!!!

I got my kid sister doll when i was 7 and I got my school picture taken with it. I still have her today and she still looks brand new. I love her as much as I did when I first got her. Now I am 27 years old and every morning when i get up and make my bed I lay her on the bed with a stuffed dog my husband got me for valentines day named Mr. Floppers. My daughter loves to lay next to my Kid sister doll and sleep. i think it is cute.
RoboDog - August 20, 2011 - Report this comment
Chucky may not look like a Cabbage Patch Kid, but Cabbage Patch Kids were still the inspiration for Chucky. Chucky's creator got sick of all the hype surrounding the Cabbage Patch Kids and created Chucky as a response. They couldn't very well make Chucky look like a Cabbage Patch Kid or they would have gotten sued by Coleco. Unfortunately Chucky looks enough like a My Buddy that people notice the resemblance but not enough for Playskool or whoever to be able to sue. There are only so many ways you can make a doll look afterall. I think the resemblance was coincidental not intentional. Either way the Chucky movies put an end to the My Buddy line.

I bought my buddy for my son when he was 4 because he was afraid to sleep in the dark. He took that darn doll everywhere with him, someone stole him out of our car one day and my son was crushed he slipped out of our house and walked 3 blocks to the police station to report buddy missing, the cops showed up , I was frantic looking for him and I was also very red faced when I told the cops it was all over a doll. Buddy was never recovered. R.I.P.

My brother had one in 1986. I just got one off ebay for my 2 year old... Always check feedback. Seller ripped me off and i have to give him more than a bath. (sew his hands and clothes) anyways.. The Chucky movie was inspired by the My Buddy Doll they just didn't call it my Buddy in the movie. So Chucky came after Buddy. Btw.. My son loves Buddy, haven't gotten to fix him yet (have had 3 days and waiting for ebay to help me with the seller)

I remember buying the My Buddy doll for my son who was born in 1983. We bought the doll sometime after 1985 and he slept with it. His sisters loved it too. Then the Chucky movie came out and we swore that we could never let the kids see the movie. They'd freak out. Don't know what happened to the doll but we weren't too fond of it after that movie. I saw that interview where the creater of Chucky said it was based on Cabbage Patch dolls. Yeh, sure. That's why it looks the same as My Buddy. He said he didn't want to get sued by the My Buddy people. Well do you think they would invent a doll that looked like Chucky the mass murderer? My Buddy came first.

OF COURSE Child's Play's inspiration was the My Buddy doll! The idea wasn't "stolen." It was what sold the movie. MY Buddy was a HUGE pop culture sensation that came out in '85. In '88, Child's Play's popularity (aside from it being AWESOME!) was due to the fact that every house with a young boy had a My Buddy doll in it! And... It is most certainly NOT the same doll used. That would have been illegal and BAD for business. They are just similar... Obviously so. :)
