Format: Paperback
The photos in this book are big, clear and there are some very nice toys shown. Given the price of this book I sincerely thought it would be more thorough given the VAST amount of Mattel talking toys that were made. It is nice to have as an addition to one's collection. One thing that bothers me is that it is "An Unauthorized Guide for Collectors" which means that material gathered was done so without permission of Mattel and therefore may have some information errors. In addition to this book I encourage you to read "Chatty Cathy Dolls" and "Talking Toys of the 20th Century" by Don & Kathy Lewis.

Format: Paperback
I was thinking this book was just going to be about the Chatty Cathy family, but it also includes a historical time line of sorts of almost all of the talking (and some other) dolls that Mattel made. Very helpful in identifying talking Mattel dolls of the 60s and early 70s. The Chatty Cathy section includes some info not included in an earlier book. Fun to look at and informative

This is a great book! I did not know until receiving it that it is large, like a magazine. It has a lot of color photographs and interesting text.

This book is exactly what I needed. I have started collecting ventage dolls from the years that I played with dolls. The book has helped me identify the correct names and shows information about them. I'm so glad to find this book!
