Hi, i have one of these dolls, she is the one with the brown hair, i've had her since i was 4 or 5 years of age and she is well used. She does however still say all the phrases that she said all those years ago as i'm now 41.

I have one of these dolls that my dad brought back from Savannah, America in in the 70's - I was about 5 or 6.  It was one of my favourite toys and I found it again recently whilst clearing out some old stuff.  It is much loved and says here comes my body (my favourite) I lost my head over you, weeeep ding, I'm falling apart uh huh.  Very funny.  It is still working after 38 years as the date on the back is 1971, and it is from Mattel made in Hong Kong.

I think she also said, "Carry me, I'm portable!"  and "I'm sooo silly!"

Expertise

I can answer most questions regarding the age and identity of Madame Alexander dolls. Nude dolls missing their original outfits can occasionally be identified if the questioner can provide pictures to aid with identification. I can also identify Madame Alexander doll clothing by itself with detailed, accurate descriptions and/or pictures. Approximate values of dolls can be provided only if the questioner can provide accurate descriptions as to condition and completeness of the doll(s) or costume(s) they are asking about. If the doll being asked about is NOT a Madame Alexander doll, and I DO know what doll it is, I will provide that information, but I can not provide values. I will gladly guide that person to other sources to find the necessary information, however. I also have an excellent knowledge of vintage Liddle Kiddle dolls by Mattel, Inc. I can help with identification, completeness and age of the dolls and their accessories, but any values provided would be approximate, and based on current market popularity.

Experience

I have been collecting dolls, in general, for 14 years. For the past 12 years I have collected Madame Alexander dolls nearly exclusively. My personal library of collector books about Madame Alexander dolls contains nearly every book published about these dolls, including many difficult-to-find, out-of-print editions.
