Cricket (Doll)

Teddy Ruxpin Cricket Doll

Remember Cricket?  This was one of those Teddy Ruxpin girlie spin offs.  The toy was unveiled by Playmate Toys at a toy show in New York City in 1986. She had a little brother named Corky and an older sister named Jill.  Cricket came with different hair styles and different skin color as well.  There was a tape player under her shirt, that when activated, made here mouth and eyes move.  There was a number of different tapes that could be purchased and used with her, as well as outfits and playsets.  Cricket would say things like "Are we having fun or what?", or "I'll be talkin' to you".  Some of the tapes would also tell knock knock jokes.  Cool thing about this doll was you could shut it off.
