Oh, this is the stuff of my youth. Believe it or not, although I was born in 1962, I did not own a Barbie doll growing up. But I had this doll, Talking Julia. I also had Mattel’s Rock Flowers and Timey Tell and Hasbro’s World of Love. That was back when girls still played with dolls until they were 11 or 12. Now they play video games. Sigh.
Talking Julia was made with the Twist ‘n Turn Barbie body and the Christie head mold. There was also a regular (non-talking) version of Julia who has straight hair and wears a nurses’s uniform.
