My father gave this to my sister when stationed in Germany in the mid-late 50's. The box said her name was "Gigi" and was German made. When tilted, she said, "Mama." There is a speaker on her back that her "voice" came out. She had "sleeping" eyes. Her limbs were connected via elastic bands inside the cavity of the body. She was made from hard plastic.

My sister had her up until a few years ago, when rain seeped into the storage where she was and the doll was ruined. I do not know if they are still out there and how much it would be worth to get another one.

If anyone has any information on the company, doll, etc. I would be most appreciative if you could contact me with the information.

Thank you!

    What year was the picture taken?

    I finally found a doll I think could be yours. Sadly it's in German, but the key words to this doll is 805/45 Puppe. The picture you have isn't very good :( I hope this is her.

    Dear Vestaswind: That photo was taken in 1963. But the doll was given to my sister, I think, between 1959-1962.

    Totally could be..So close to Christmas and I have sworn off buying dolls for awhile. I love this kind of sale. Clearly the seller is not a doll collector and left the cleaning up to the buyer. Love it.
