Listed is a beautiful Mattel African American Chatty Cathy doll, she is in very good used condition and would benefit. She has been in storage for quite some time as she previously belonged to a collector that has.
19"- 20" depending on where you start, she is wearing her original outfit and it too. Is in great condition, her slip and panties could use new elastic since it is stretched out and needs to be pinned to keep. Them up, she is also wearing her original red velvet shoes and socks (socks a bit yellowed from age).Her face and hair is under. A hair net and her hair is in it's original style which I believe is a pageboy, I have left the net on so as not to disturb the style. She has sweet brown sleep eyes that work well and all of her lush eyelashes. Little girl is a lighter brown than her arms, legs and face but not as light as it appears in the photos, her left calf is a shade lighter. The rest of her leg but is possibly a manufacturers defect since I can't find any reason for it. She has a working pull cord and she does talk, so far I have heard her say 7 of the 11 phrases that I read she can say, they are as follows. I'm Hungry - Please Carry Me.
I'm Sleepy - Please Brush My Hair. I Love You- Where are We Going?From what I have read these dolls were made in a limited quantity and are somewhat rare. She has the Mattel Square on her back. And it is marked Chatty Cathy- 1960 - Chatty Baby- 1961. Other US & Foreign Pats Pend. NOTE: This dolls face is NOT porcelain it is a hard plastic she is not a Danbury Mint doll! Most all of what I list are vintage items and they range in age from 20-60 years old, I describe them as in good used condition with normal wear from age and use which means they are not perfect. Or in new condition but presentable. If they need repair I list that but otherwise they are vintage (old) and not perfect unless noted. And I will do my best to resolve them.
