Thirstee Cry Baby

I was given my grandmothers doll like this. I remember playing with her when I would visit in the summer as a little girl. My doll is a little different as her eyes are golden brown and her speaker box is long gone. :(

This darling little baby has a unique original feature. You insert a “D” size battery in the compartment in her back and flip a switch and she starts crying until you insert a bottle into her mouth that pushes a little lever to make her stop crying and start cooing and making happy sounds.

LIMBS: Hard vinyl arms & legs, bent baby legs, not a walker
HEAD: Softer vinyl, open bottle mouth w/shut off mechanism

EYES: Open/close blue sleep eyes, rooted upper lashes
JOINTS: Flange neck, arms, legs
