English Palitoy Talkative Jane Doll. 1963. Has a deeper voice than the other talking dolls. Says things like I love you Mommy, I want to go bed, what a pretty dress, Can I help you Mommy and a few more. This doll has a complete make-over including eyelashes.
This is a German Turtle Mark doll She says 11 different phrases in German. It has a Mattel talk box and record. I imported the eyes from Germany they are also Turtle Mark eyes
This Canadian Chatty Baby came to me with milky colored eyes and no lashes. She also didn`t talk. I was able to restore the color to her eyes and remove most of the smaller scratchs. Then replaced the lashes and repaired the voice.
She arrived safe and sound yesterday. Her eyes are beautiful to see me with and she can now talk to me :-). You did a wonderful job on the eyes; I really appreciate your efforts.
thanks again, JoAnn
