dollCan any one please help me obtain another doll like this one. If you know the name of the doll or the manufacturer would be helpful. I got this doll for Christmas when I was in the 3rd grade 1984, this photo was taken of me and Tom thats what I named him, in May of 1992. I figured after all those years he finally needed washing so I put him in the washing machine and he was torn to shreds. I tried my best to put him back together but no luck. My mom doesnt even remember what store she bought him from, so the internet is my last hope.

good/bad/or all of the above

It is so fun to hear about all the toys from my childhood. It is kind of dangerous though. Yesterday, I logged and then went right to a search engine scouring for my strawberry shortcake, and rainbow brite. I remember how amazing the strawberry shortcake dolls smelled and unless you buy one in the box they are mostly stated that the scent is gone. I was sort of sad about that, as dumb as that sounds when talking about a toy that came out about 79'.

I had all the popular 80's toys and played with them all the time. My basement used to flood and a lot of my toys stored in the basement toy chest got ruined. Then my Mom gave away my Rainbow Brite doll to my cousins girlfriends son. I was sooooooooooo upset. Recently, an ex friend donated my belongings that were she offered to store at her house, including books, games, card games, toys... I was so mad I did not even know what to do. I wanted those things for my kids. I am a sad 80's toy fan/collector

Need help finding a doll for my GF Please

Posted By bellasera33051 on Dec 1, 2009 at 8:34PM

My girlfriend is 29.  She was born Jan 10th 1980.  She was telling me the other day about a doll she always wanted and used to ask santa for it everyday and never got it for christmas.  She quit believing then. I am trying to find the doll.  The doll she described was a baby doll.  The eyes moved, and the baby had a diaper that when you placed under water, and the diaper got wet it said whether or not it was a boy or a girl.  I would love to find out who made this doll and if one is available as well as some information on it.  Would be a great christmas present. Any help would be great, or maybe you have one for purchase. You can email me back at bellasera33051@yahoo.com


Thanks much

Gerber Baby

Posted By Yo samity sam on Feb 2, 2008 at 10:43AM

Made of vinyl with a soft body. She had flirty (blinking) eyes. They rolled from side to side.
The Gerber Baby has been around since 1936, but this particular model was made in 1979 and I played with her all throughout the 80's.
I loved my gerber baby - I put diapers on her and my mom made clothes for her. She still has her, but I think her head is a little wobbly. I treated this baby as if she was real.....

Whoopsie Doll

Posted By Yo samity sam on Feb 2, 2008 at 10:22AM

She is 13" tall and made of vinyl made by Ideal. A novelty little doll that I'm sure drove adults crazy, but thrilled children for hours. She has a soft foam filled body that when squeezed, makes her little pigtails fly up and she lets out a very loud whistle that sounds a bit like "whoopsie". Her body is one piece, not jointed. She is wearing her original one piece sun suit and she was sold barefoot. I still have mine, but she isn't very pretty! haha
