When I was a kid I got a doll with a tape player inside of her for Christmas. She came with a tape about safety that told you how to call 911 and don't talk to strangers and all that jazz. I don't think it was a story, but it was just these kids talking and singing about safety. I know that Cricket is a tape player and I really want her too, but I don't think this is Cricket because all the Cricket tapes I've heard on Youtube are just one kid talking. This was a group of kids. I loved this doll and I played her a lot until she finally started sounding like she was singing under water, so Mom tossed her, which was sad because she probably just needed a new battery. I've thought about her for years and I've been trying to find out about her ever since I discovered online forums and groups. I've asked on doll forums, bear forums, and 80s toys facebook groups, and nobody has been able to tell me. I really hope you guys can tell me who she is so I can have my childhood doll back. Thanks.
I love that Julie commercial, but that's not the doll I had. I watched a vid of someone playing with a Jill doll and that's sort of close, but I don't remember my doll encouraging you to talk back and speaking based on what you say. The way I remember it, you just listened to the tape. Do the Jill tapes have several kids' voices or just one?
I don't think so. I have her brother Skippy Scribbles and he has an arm that sticks out all weird so he can draw. She didn't have that, it was just a tape. I'm pretty sure her mouth moved and probably her eyes, not sure as I have no eyesight, and I think her head might have moved as well. I'm wondering now if the tape was meant to go with this doll or if she was a Cricket or one of the others that just had another tape stuck in her. If this will help, I got her in 1992 or 1993, but she could have come from a yard sale so she could be older.
