Description
These were sets of quintuplet kids. (They were rather sweet,actually...) They came in all different races and eventually they had some older cousins who would babysit for them, and they had hundreds, I mean*hundreds*, of accessories, from small cats to hairdressing salons to horse carriages to shopping trolleys.

My sister and I had some different sets of these I think...they were always Barbie's 'babies'. We didn't play Barbies the same as other kids, I guess.

"Quints. Quints...I love taking care of all of you!" I remember the commercial. Never had the dolls though. My very best friend and I would play with her Quints and her peeing Baby Alive.

I totally remember these because they lasted for a while. There was a first version where the babies had chubbier faces and came in a house made out of the same stuff as three ring binders, haha. I got the second version, also the white babies with blonde hair, but totally different looking than my sisters. They game with playground set which was pretty fun. I remember getting frustrated when the babies couldn't "play" that well on the equipment though, haha.

Haha I'd forgotten about these and it didn't click until I saw the picture! I think a friend or cousin of mine got these and I ended up with a couple of them. They ended up being Barbie's babies.

OMG!! I had like 3 sets of quints and a BUNCH of accesories. I used to take them everywhere, and I left them in someones car once, (it was my moms b/f at the time and he didn't want his other girlfriend to see them so he threw them out.. my mom told me later)But I would still have them if I hadn't lost them. I have a 2 year old daughter now, and I would love to have them back for her. I do have my Polly Pockets for her though.. the tiny ones, not those newer big ones. WHat a walk down memory lane.

I remember the advertising jingle from when I was five!! I told the kids I nanny it and they say it all the time now!! I had the red haired summer fun set that came with little birds in baskets. I still remember my mum wouldn't buy them for me but my granny did.

I still have two sets of quints - brunettes with freckles, and blonde ones that had little levers on their backs to make them do different actions e.g. one would wiggle its head side to side, one nodded, one shook its head, one moved both arms and one raised one arm. i also have a bedtime set of little robes and sleeping bags PLUS I still have my quints playground! 5 swings, sandpit, etc etc. Amazing.

I had a set of blondes, that came in a sleeping bag made to sleep 5. I remember pouring over the list of name suggestions that came with them.

L - January 13, 2008 - Report this comment
I had them and their house. I remember their numbers on their diapers and the accessories that were, thankfully attached in sets of 5. I also had their triplet cousins "Quints cousins, one, two, three, the three coolest cousins you will ever see"

There are numerous websites that still sell some accessories - especially in the UK. Just enter quints 1980s into any search and you will find plenty of sites.

My sister (the blonde batch) and I (brunettes) had them,with a 5 baby crib. Now I passed them along to my daughter. We also used them as Barbies babies.
Ann - May 10, 2008 - Report this comment
I had a set of them that I loved (they were blonde). I don't have my originals anymore, but I do have some blonde ones I found at the thrift store and a MIB set of black haired ones and a MIB tricycle. They are the sweetest!
Ducky - July 22, 2008 - Report this comment
I always got a kick out of being able to take care of them simultaneously with the neat accessories that were attached to each other :) Like the spoons & bowls...the bottles...the baby powder...if only it could be that easy with real life multiples! (I've got quadruplet cousins, & they were NOT as easy to babysit as the quints lol)

I absolutely loved my quints! Had the blonde set until my cousin chewed the arms!!! Then got the brunette set. Also had the house, bath set, five little cats, kitchen set and still have the Little Golden Book. I have fond memories of te quints!

I had the quints dolls! I remember getting them for Chistmas when I was 8! Quints, Quints 5 times the fun! I love taking care of each and every one!
sara - December 06, 2008 - Report this comment
I don't know if I had the soft dolls but I had a house that had multiple levels and a balcony and the roof would pop open. Where the roof and house connected there was a little white heart and on top of the roof was a plastic ring. It was kind of a smallish house. WAS THIS A QUINTS HOUSE??? I have been trying to figure it out for years!!
Meredith - December 12, 2008 - Report this comment
From what you are describing, it like that is their house, Sara :). OMG I had several accessories to go with the dolls and their cousins. I used to play with them for hours. Such great fun!
Shannon - December 13, 2008 - Report this comment
My sisters and I had a set of blonde ones, and even the Quint's cousins which were a set of tweenish aged girl triplets to babysit the quints!

I still wish I had these. They are so cute.
Rachel - December 28, 2008 - Report this comment
This was such a neat toy, and I remember going to Toys R Us to buy them. I loved naming them, and all the accessories they had to go with them. So much cooler than today's dolls.
Jen - January 04, 2009 - Report this comment
My sister and were hopeless Quint collectors as kids. We had a TON of them...the blonde, brunette, black haired, AND babies. We, too, used them as children for our Barbies. I would actually carry mine around with me and play with them in other places (I was a bit wierd). I've tried to find them again because my friend's little girl is turning 2 in a few days and she would LOVE them, but I can't find them. It makes me wish I'd somehow kept all my old Quints.
Amber - January 15, 2009 - Report this comment
Okay, I was at a swap meet with my mom when I was about six and I had my Quints in my pocket and then I couldn't find one. I was freaking out and yelling, "Mom, I lost Trudy!!! I lost Trudy!!!" and some guy came over and thought I lost a real little kid. It was pretty funny. And Trudy was still in my pocket.

I loved these. Mine had blond hair I had two boys I named Jack(blue) and Tommy (green) and three girls I named Melinda (yellow), Melissa(purple)and (I can't remember the red one's name). I wanted to get all their accessories, but never did. I only had their bed and feeding set.

Wow, I had these but I had no clue there were so many different playsets and accessories. I kind of feel like I missed out now. Still, I loved what little I had. My quints were the blond set that had molded-on diapers and came with a sleeping bag and bottles, and the only additional playset I had for them was the rocking horse one. I eventually unsnapped all the horses from the base so my quints could have free-ranging cowboy adventures! Ah, good memories.

I loved my quints, too! I had the blonde set plus the swimming pool and rocking chair, and their calendar is still in a drawer in my room. I also loved writing stories about them, and their names were Pinky, Bluey, Yellowy, Greeny, and Purpley. (kind of weird, right? at least you people had normal names) It's cool to find out other people share their quints stories, too.
