Interesting Dee & Cee Chatty Cathy things and other Dee & Cee things (below)
Boxes Chatty Cathy Came In (Below)
(Above) Box #2 ... "Window Box" This is the second Box dated 1961 and has a stock number of ??? I think that number is ripped off the box
so I do not know what it is.  This box was used for the early dolls the dolls that still said 11 phrases.  I bought this box and the doll that came in
it was a  #3 brunette bob/Paige Boy hard head that said 11 phrases. She was dressed in the pink peppermint stick dress.  This box is marked
brunette which I think is odd because it is a window box and you could see what you were buying.  I am so unsure about so much when it comes
to these boxes, I just do not buy that many boxed to know a lot about them but I am learning.
(Above) Box #3 ... This is the last box made and I cannot find my pictures of the back of the box but it is the same as the Canadian box below.
So until I buy another one this will just have to do.  This box is dated 1962 and the top of the box can be marked , Auburn 745, 746 Blonde, 747
Brunette and 742 for the Black doll, the doll came in one of these 2 dresses.  This could be why we see so many pink peppermint stick and red
party dresses out there. This is also the box Dee & Cee used.
(below) is the hand tag that came on the doll.
(below) Number Stamped on
the box. Sometimes it was
hand written.
Box #1 Dated 1959 (below)
Box #3 Dated 1962 (below)
Dee & Cee French / American Canadian Box Dated 1962(below)
Dee & Cee Marked the box
everywhere, so there is no
mistake this is a Canadian Dee &
Cee Box.  They even have the
"Fabrique AU Canada"
Marked on the side of the box
which means Made In Canada in
French.  See Picture Below.
Hence The French Speaking
Chatty CathyDoll.
Also notice it says it's a "Division Of Mattel INC".
So Mattel must of bought them out by the time this
box was made.  That alone is very interesting.

Also notice something else on all these boxes it says
"Mattys Funnies On TV"  So we know Mattel did
most of their advertising on TV and that could be
why it has been so hard for me to find sales ads on
the Chatty Cathy doll.   Plus what little kid didn't
watch the Saturday Morning Funnies????
Above is the hand tag that came with the
Canadian Doll.  It says the address is
dee & cee toy co. ltd.

It also gives the same 90 day warranty.   To
send your (cheque or money order--no C.O.D.
$1.00 to have your doll repaired
Also says
You can't see it is the picture below but
the top of the box says STOCK NO 746
and the word blonde is hand written next
"Fabrique AU Canada"
is French for
Made In Canada

(Above)  Barbie Wardrobe Box, I found this picture and was very
surprised that Dee & Cee also had something to do with the Barbie Doll,
but after reading the box above where it says dee & cee "Division Of
Mattel INC" means Mattel owned dee & cee in 1962 before the box was
made and continued to use the name dee & cee on the boxes along with
the Mattel INC.  As well as they did on the dee & cee clothes tags.

Boxes Dee an Cee dolls came in.  Notice their motto
"Quality Above All"
Chatty Cathy Things (below)
Chatty Cathy jewelry.  You could get this in
red or blue (I think) It came as a neckless,
hair clip and a ring.  All three had this same
setting on them.
(Above) Shoe Horn that came in all the boxes.
(Above) Paper dolls date on these is 1963
(Above) Pattren was made by Advance in Canada 1962

Summing-up... I am still looking for rare dolls ads, boxes but this is my last page.  I think it is time for me to put my
Chatty Cathy research to rest.  I have been on the hunt now for at least 10 years and longer for some dolls.  I will
continue to up-date my pages as needed especially the pinwheel eyes in the hard head dolls and the Canadian clothes, not
to mention the foreign dolls and the boxes......LOL....... mmmm maybe I am not done yet!
(Above) Box #1 ... This is the first Box dated 1959 and has a stock number of 681 and have seen stock number 682 stamped on this box.  
Those stock numbers are the same as the stock numbers on 2 different sets of the Chatty Cathy clothes.
(Click Here for Cahtty Cathy
Clothes Page).   But I am unsure if those numbers stand for the clothes the doll came in or the color of her hair (blond or brunette).  The
reason I say that is because on the later boxes those numbers stand for the color of the hair and not the clothes.  (I think)....The box might of
been dated 1959 but the first dolls did not come out until 1960.  I am also thinking that is why the sayings on the box are different than the 11
phrase record and the story book.  Because the first record was not made until 1960 (see picture above).  This was the box the Prototype came
in as well as the other cloth covered speaker dolls.
Box #2 Dated 1961(below)
Notice the Matty's Funnies TV
advertisement is on all 3 of  the
Chatty Cathy boxes from 1959 to
The box says:  MATTY AND CHATTY
UNIT U.S. PAT. 3,017,187, OTHER U.S.
know why there is a JAPAN tag on the
American made Chatty Cathy clothes.

(Above) 1998 Remake box.  The box was made in 1998 and the doll sold in 1999.  Same as the
very first box above except it is marked at the top as to what doll is in the box and what she is
wearing.    Also the 1998 hand tag and picture of  the Aug 1999 doll world magazine showing
the remake Chatty Cathy doll and how Mattel made a new doll.  She is called the Holiday
Chatty Cathy doll and says different phrases than the original 11 or 18 The only phrase that is
original is "I Love You".   Also when Mattel remade the doll and her clothes they retired the
"Red Party Dress" not the blue one.

Chatty Cathy Doll
Spanish Box (6 pictures above)...Notice this box says this Spanish speaking Chatty Cathy doll only says 11 phrases.

Also... I think that number 683 is for the outfit she had on (not the pink peppermint you see in the picture but another one) I say that because
on my Chatty Cathy Box Page the early boxes are numbered and those numbers match the numbers on the outfits on my Chatty Cathy clothes
Page,  but I am unsure about that because on the later boxes those numbers stand for the color of the hair and not the clothes.  (I think)....
Canadian dee & cee Chatty Cathy Box (Below)
Box #1 "NOT" Dated (below) Picture given to me from Cindy W
(Left ) Canadian Box #1 ... This is the first
Box form Dee & Cee it is not dated but I
am sure it is also a 1959 or 1960 box.  It
would of been the first box Dee & Cee used
for the Chatty Cathy doll.  The box says
CC20 and there isn't any French markings
on it at all so I am sure this is the very first
box Dee & Cee used for the very fist
prototype Chatty Cathy dolls.  This was the
box the Prototype came in as well as the
other cloth covered speaker dolls.  NOte
now that a #1 and #3 Dee & Cee boxes
have been found.  It is very likely a #2 Dee
& Cee Box is out there.  It would look like
the box below labeled #2.  Please Email me
if you have one.
Thanks and Thank You Cindy W. for these
wonderful pictures!
