The doll you see in all the photos is an authentic, vintage, made by Mattel, Chatty Cathy. She is a soft faced Canadian blonde bob....she has a #4 body with an open speaker. This beautiful Chatty is spotless with a lovely color from head to toe...she has no marks, scratches, stains or blemishes of any kind anywhere on her body, limbs or face. The hair is a beautiful golden blonde with a tiny bit of red, there are no cuts and no missing plugs. Chatty has been professionally repaired to talk and does so loud and clear with no background noise or missing phrases, her seams are beautifully sealed and finished leaving them smooth & neat looking. I have cleaned Chatty thoroughly, shampooed and conditioned her hair and then curled it giving her what is known as a ''boil perm''. It does a very nice job of reviving the hair producing a curl that will last a long time with a reasonable amount of sensible care.
Chatty is spotlessly clean and smells sweet and fresh! Her hair is original and not re-rooted. Her large, blue pinwheel eyes are also vintage original to this doll and have not been replaced with different eyes....they are so gorgeous! Eyebrows, eyeliner and freckles are original....I have repainted Chatty's lips and cheek blush with acrylic paints and then sealed them both with a matte acrylic sealer....this seals the paint and keeps it fresh and bright indefinitely. It will not chip, peel, fade or wash off....however, whether repainted or not, care should be taken to never use anything abrasive on the face, just mild dish soap occasionally to keep her clean and fresh will do no harm and is recommended. Chatty's limbs are not swingy and will hold a pose nicely, she sits and stands on her own as evident in her photos, her head moves easily from side to side and her eyes open and close as they should and eyelashes are thick & perfection....I guarantee what you see in the photos is what you will get. Head, body and limbs are all original to this doll.
