    I remember having a toy that had little plastic records very much the same as those with the doll but it was a red plastic toy telephone.

    I'm absolutely gutted that I have only just come across the 2 posts by pearsonsbargains I must have been away on holiday or in hospital at the time!!
    Still delighted to find she was indeed named Pam after all these years!!
    I'm only sorry i never thanked them for posting the advert and photos.
    That is indeed the exact doll I had

    This rings a bell - was it similar to Teddy Ruxpin in the way it (or should I say, she) worked?

    Hi. I know this thread was started few years ago but I don't have the doll any more but have lots of the records I'm looking to re home. Let me know if interested.

    When I was little I remember playing with a doll that I had at my grandma's house. She was made of hard plastic, about a foot tall and came with a set of mini records. There was a latch on her back that you opened to put the records in and then I think she 'sang' nursery rhymes and Christmas carols. I remember that the records were transparent and were blue, pink and clear. I'd love to know the name of this doll. This was in the early 80s though I suspect the doll was a hand -me-down from one of my gran's neighbours so she was probably from the 70s. Can anybody help?


    I had one also I think her hair was long and reddish but had the same transparent records. I'd also love to find out.

    Among some things belonging to my late mum, I found she had saved this newspaper cut-out of toys for christmas (1979 era)

    Although mine is currently selling on ebay at the moment I can give you a little bit of info about the doll and records. Mine too plays the records that are pictured above. She came with 16, one white one was one she spoke on, saying things like "good morning, momma, "are we home soon, momma and she giggled. The records were double-sided and all played nursery rhymes, the black ones played christmas carols. She uses 1 c battery to operate. She is about 2 feet tall and she can stand up and she can walk if u stand behind her and hold her hands up in the air. She kinda flops one leg in front of the other to mimic walking.

    Anyway, thought you would like to see some pictures and hear her talk. My mum has passed on so unfortunately, I cannot give you much detail about the doll, only that I receieved it around 1978.

    My doll was similar to the one you posted and it looks like the same record size.
    I had been looking for my childhood doll for years and just finally found it yesterday!!! She needs fixing so I'm hoping to find parts for her here. Her name was Mimi and I got her in 1972. She was known as the doll that could walk, talk and sing. She has platinum blonde hair and green eyes. She is a Regal toy Ltd (her head is Regal) but the mechanism in her back is Japanese made.

    I used to have 3 records that played in her back. Record size would be about 2 inches. One played Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, the other played Mary had a little Lamb and the last one played BaBa Black Sheep. On the reverse of each record, there were short phrases that she spoke. Once the mini record was placed in her back, you would press her belly button to activate the record.

    I'm missing the little records and the cover to the battery compartment. If anyone ever finds these, please let me know. Would also like to have some of her original outfits. I don't remember what they looked like. Thanks.

    It would be a pleasure to connect with you.

    I had a male version like an Action Man with the records in as well. Can't remember it's name either.

    Used to swap the records with my sisters girls version. Real funny at the time.

    I have one of these dolls too. Mine was in my parent's attic until recently. I've taken her down now and I'm in the process of trying to ger her cleaned up a bit! I thought I remembered calling her Pam too when I was a child. I would have been given her in the early 80's by Santa! I can remember the Christmas I received her as I also got a pram that year and I was so excited!

    I'd love to know what her proper name and make is. I'll post some photos of her when I get a chance.

    Since we first posted about these dolls I've seen a few different ones come up on Ebay, all slightly different shapes and sizes, but along the same lines

    Here's a few

    I still have my doll with the original clothes and the white record (plays the phrases). I think it just mumbles now as a battery leaked. I have often looked to see what sort of doll it was. The photo in the 2nd or 3rd post looks a little different, I think mine is more taller. If it's worth a bit I think I will take if back off my 5 year old lol
