They looked like regular Cabbage Patch Dolls, but they talked. They tell you when they're sleepy, hungry and bored.

These kind of freaked me out a little. I just never liked a lot of fancy stuff on my toys. We spent too much time in trees and playing outside to make batteries and electronics that much fun.

I had this doll. I got her for Christmas and all I remember she was expensive! I still have her somewhere!

Mine was scary!! It made a whirring type noise when its mouth moved and it smelled funny, sort of like burnt plastic (??). Eventually the batteries leaked all over and then only the mouth moved and she made some odd sounds. I never liked her as much as the one my mom sewed for me. Does anyone else have a home-made cabbage patch kid? Apparently they're supposed to be worth a lot more then the originals. They were plastic heads that came with a pattern to sew the body and they were really from Xavier Roberts. I have a boy and a girl.

I really loved my little doll, but then decided to watch 'Childs Play' and that put me off it forever!. It now lives wherever I can't see it, I'm just too sentimental to get rid of it.

I had one and I never liked her as much as my other Cabbage Patch Kids. She was heavy and blocky feeling.

I had two talking Cabbage Patch Dolls as a child, one blonde and one redhead. They were incredible toys... I would turn them on together, and after a while they would become "aware" of each other and begin talking back and forth. They even sang songs in harmony together, which I thought was the coolest thing in the world! :) After a few years, something happened to the redhead that made her unable to sense her cup anymore to take a drink. She would beg for "her little cup," and I always felt so guilty I would have to turn her off every time she became thirsty (which never took long). Even with the malfunctioning mouth though, those toys were two of my absolute favorites growing up. :)

I still have mine. I remember saving up money for a Cricket doll. When I had the money saved, we went to the store to get it...and they were out. My mom suggested a talking CPK instead. I thought she was better than Cricket.

We were cleaning out my moms house and came across our talking dolls. We have four because there were four girls. We put new batteries in and all four of them worked. We even had all their sippy cups. If anyone would like to buy them contact me at cindycc_73 at yahoo dot com

Anyone know how the sippty cups work? My parents found a bunch of the talkers at Goodwill, but they are missing their cups and its depressing when they ask for a drink and you cant give it to them. I'd like to attempt to make a few cups, but I dont know what the talkers respond too. Magnetism, touch? Does anyone know what is so special about the cups that the dolls sense?

Jamie - I just put the batteries in 3 of my dolls for my daughter, when she asked for a drink I held a magnet up to her mouth and she drank.

Omg I found mine in my old toy box that I refinished for my daughter... SHE STILL WORKS GREAT!!! She has all her clothes and cup! My daughter loves her just as much as I did! Can't believe that after 22 years she still works!

Mine still works! My daughter plays with her all the time. We both love her! My sister's doll quit working about 5 years ago, I was sad they couldn't sing together anymore. Love these dolls!

I bought a talking Cabbage Patch Kid for my daughter and we heard that if there were two dolls they would communicate with each other so I bought one for myself. Ten years ago mine stopped working but hers is still going strong. I would love to buy a second one to communicate with my daughter's doll. Or if I can't buy one, does anyone know where to get the broken one fixed? My email address is: Please email me at that addy if you have one to sell or know where I can get it fixed. Thanks! Renne H.

I bought a Talking girl cabbage patch doll that is beautiful but she doesn't talk. I put new batteries in her but all I hear is a noise. Does anyone know who can repair it or I may also want to sell it

I still have my daughters in mint condition. Birth certificate, cup, all the clothes she came with etc Bought for my daughter when she was a baby she was not really interested so I packed it away.
Brandi - December 02, 2012 - Report this comment
I had one. She scared me so bad I left her in the closet deep under a large pile of clothes. It was the time that childs play was out. And she talked on her own. Like if you left her on her stomach, she would say "PLEASE TURN ME OVER"!!! AHHHH just thinking about those days gives me the heeby jeebies!!! LOL

Oh i had a talking cabbage patch doll, she had red hair and blue eyes and although i collected all cabbage patch kids, she was my most favourite, my stepmum had the brown hair blue eyes one and i used to like to put them together and sing with them...... i took my redhead girl everywhere, i adored her until my dad decided to "see how she worked" (electronic freak) and totally broke her, i remember when i lost her cup and she would beg for it i felt so bad, i still have mine, she is just a shell now because when the brown haired one broke my dad "transplanted" the red heads parts into her (no idea what my ex stepmum did with her) so mine is sitting in a box, no clothes and just a shell of her former self, been more then 10 years maybe 16 years and today my dad called me to tell me that he found an exact one to my girl and paid top dollars to get her sent here to Australia, she is still working and has the same red hair and blue eyes but my dad wants to transplant the faces (dont ask me why, its the same face, may tell him to leave it)she comes with no sippy cup (will need to find one) i might be 25 years old now but i still got excited to know that i will finally get another one of these dolls. @DIANE...... im in sydney and my dad is great with electronics, if you email me at .... i may be able to help get your daughters doll fixed :)
