|About Doll: German Chatty Cathy She is 22 to 23 inches tall and is 50 years old. She is fragile and has old plastic parts inside her that can and do break
easy if you drop her. She has been repaired to talk but she needs to be treated or displayed like a fine piece of china. She is Not meant to be played with
she is being sold for display only. The doll is not for Children. Please do not let children play with the doll. The doll is vintage and she stains and can break
easily. The Doll is not Child Proof.
Type: Not numbered. Back is not stamped but she does have the Schildkrot Turtle Mark on the back of her neck. The doll was made by Schildkrot a
German company but her voice box was made by Mattel. Her record is from 1963 so the do would of been made in 1963 or 64.
Voice Box: Round grill. Doll has been repaired to talk. She says all 18 phrases, with little to no background noise. She is a loud and clear and very good
talker. (I think, but she is a German doll so I do not know for sure if she is saying all her phrases correctly).
Eyes: Original Clear Beautiful Blue Pinwheel Sleep Eyes. They open and close as they should, her eye are original and she has all her sable lashes. Her lashes
are somewhat curled.
Hair: Has Not Been Cut. Her hair is very thick and there are a few plugs missing here and there. She has nice short bob cup hair. No curling necessary
just was and fluff and it will curl back. Her hair has been washed and conditioned and has not been curled and it does have factory curl left. She will come
to you with her hair freshly washed and conditioned.
Face: All Original! She has good face color. She has doesn't have any face freckles and never has had any. Her lips are a light red and she still has some
cheek color. No added color or make-up has been added to her face. Note: Just look at her face! I swear every time I look at her face she looks like she is
just plain disgusted with life! Like "what's your problem"? "Don't touch me!" I swear sometimes these dolls really do talk to me...LOL... Do you think
maybe I have been in this business way too long! LOL...LOL...LOL...
Arms: Both arms hold a Pose. Both arms are held by a big rubber band so they are not very stable meaning you would not want to pick up the doll by
grabbing one of the arms. There are some serface scratches but nothing noticeable, no stains.
Legs: Both legs hold a Pose. Both legs are held by a big rubber band so they are not very stable meaning you would not want to pick up the doll by grabbing
one of the arms. There are some surface scratches but nothing noticeable, no stains. She will stand but is not real stable.
Hands: Both Hands Have All the Fingers. No noticeable nicks or stains.
Feet: Both Feet Have All Their Toes. No noticeable nicks or stains.
Head: Soft Head, Turns As It Should.
Body: All seams are closed and look ok (see pictures). Her body is in excellent shape.
Over All Color: Arms and Legs are all the same color, a skin tone color. Body Is A Nice Peachy Color But Different From Arms and Legs. Head Is A
Nice Tannish/Peachy Color.
Over All Condition: This is a very rare German Chatty Cathy doll. Very very hard to find. I hunted for one for years. Truthfully I didn't know what the
doll looked like so maybe that is why it took me ten years to find one. This doll held a wealth of information for me. I not only found out that Mattel did
make foreign speaking records for sure but I also found out that all the talking dolls foreign or American dolls had Mattel made voice boxes back in the
1960's. The voice box was made a little different in the foreign dolls but basically the same and much loader than the closed one in the American dolls This
doll is in very good shape she has a white record which means she is a very good talker. As soon as I find out what she is saying I will post her phrases.
The doll isn't made as well as the American Chatty Cathy doll because the limbs are held in place by a big strong rubber band. Which also made her very
hard to repair. Although her limbs seem like they are going to fall off because of that rubber band, they don't. Meaning I have swung her around just to see
if they would pull off and they don't. They always snap right back in place. Her body is made out of the same hard plastic as the Chatty Cathy doll but the
limbs are made of a light thin plastic. The color of her limbs match her body much better than most Chatty Cathy dolls. Her eyes are pinwheel and are very
pretty and are not the same as the pinwheel eyes in a American Chatty Cathy doll. She has thick lashes that are long and curl upright. Her face is 100%
natural. She has very nice color. Her hair is short and cute and easy to work with. It bounces right back after washing or even if she has been laying
down for a while. She is over all a very nice RARE doll.
Clothes/Shoes If Any: She is wearing a cute old dress with matching panties, shoes, socks and ribbon for her hair. Note:. Her clothes are not new and I
think 50 years old. I do not think they are original. She is ready for display.
Age Of Doll: "For Newbies" Please remember this is a very old doll and it will have the wear and tear of any 50 year old doll. The doll is not new and is
not being sold as a new doll. She may have light staining or discoloring on her body and limbs. Anything that I notice will be in her description. But if it is a
small line like a 1/4 inch pencil or pen mark I will not mention it. These dolls are so old and all of them have been played with by little kids. So all of them will
have some little thing wrong with them. Anything that is noticeable is always mentioned in her description. Please look close at all pictures. I am also going
to tell you here (below) what to look for. You can use this list when you are buying from me or on eBay or anywhere you buy a doll. But Also remember
that not everything will show up in a picture.
