Do you remember these? They had big heads, and little bodies, and when you pulled the body down and away from the head, it played a tune and then wound the body back up again. Anyone know what they were called, and who made them? Cheers!

How cool - thank you so much Daz! I forgot their faces were stickers! Love the Casper one too- wish I had one.

I have one, It's got a sticker face, and it's got brown plastic hair (in a bob), (there was one made with yellow hair too). When you pull the string, it says a few different sentences at random. "That's quite a stretch" "here comes my mummy" "opps, I lost my head for a moment" "opp gulp". On back of her head is stamped MATTEL, HONG KONG, 1971. and, I love her! I've kept her in perfect condition since I was 4 years old when I got her. I am now 44.
