It's Mrs. Beasley! This adorable doll got her start on the American Sitcom, Family Affair. The character, Buffy, was always seen carrying the old Mrs. Beasley around all the time, and people fell in love.
Best of all, this Mrs. Beasley has her original pull cord and voice box. Her voice is slightly crackly, but it is very clear to the ear what she is saying.
Actress Maureen McCormick of Brady Bunch fame, lent her voice to the doll's voice box. She says six phrases in total:
"Would you like to try on my glasses? You may if you wish." "I do think you're the nicest little friend I've ever had!" "Gracious me! You're getting to be such a big girl." "If you could have three wishes what would you wish for?" "Long ago, I was a little girl just like you." "It would be such fun to play jump rope! Don't you think?"
Though it's a tiny bit scratchy, her voice sounds just fine!
She is made of blue fabric with white polka-dots and wears an apron to match. Her feet are covered in soft yellow fabric. Her apron and her little Peter Pan collar are embellished with bright yellow rick rack.
The doll's hands and face are made of light flesh colored vinyl while her enormous eyes are bright blue. Our favorite part is her big and square wire glasses.
The glasses stay on her face firmly, but can be taken off if you get the urge to try them on. They really do go perfectly with her curly yellow hair.
There are one or two scuffs on her "skin" and her outfit shows some areas of slight wear. There is an area of slight discoloration on the left shoulder and the right sleeve has been recently professionally repaired.
The original silken "Mattel" tag remains perfectly intact and stitched to the doll's right side.
Despite some very minimal condition issues, this Mrs. Beasley remains in spectacular condition!
This is a rare find because she talks and she has her original glasses. Fabulous!
