I know she is super cute. The story about this doll is that when I was 4 years old I went to preschool and saw this doll. This particular day a little girl brought this doll to school. It was as big as she was and, I wanted a doll just like it so bad. So, when mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas I thought back to the day that I watched that little girl hold that doll all through school. (In my day you could take toys to school in preschool). I watched her more that day than I did the teacher lol. I told my mom I wanted a doll as big as me because, that was all I could remember. I didn't know what kind of doll the little girl had. Mom found a wonderful doll for me that was quite large. I still have her actually. All my life I have had this moment stuck in my head. As an adult collector of antique and vintage dolls I have learned over the years exactly what doll it was I remembered. I have what is called a photographic memory. When my friend brought her over she was identical to that little girl's doll. Yay I finally have my childhood obsession. ROFLOL. What a great friend right? She is so cuddly and floppy. I would give anything to go back in time with her. I know I would have been over the moon to find her under the Christmas tree. My memory of certain things from childhood scares my adopted sister. For years I told her she had a bikini with hippos on it. She swore I was wrong until she cleaned out her father's garage after his death. She found a box and walaa there was a box. She opened it and inside was the hippo bikini. See I told her so!! LOL She doubts me no longer. I think the reason I remember certain things so vividly is that I am overly observant due to anxiety issues. I see things intensely and in great detail. There are some things though that I really have forgotten completely.

Thank you guys for enjoying my dollies. I have so much fun posting photos of new ones or old ones you have not seen. Its super fun for me.

If I could pull a doll out of time and space I would pull my baby heather out. Of all the dolls I have had I miss her the most.

She was my Baby Heather Doll


This is not my picture but its hard to find one with all the stuff on it. We did not have a lot of money when I was 5 So don't know how my parents got her for me she was expensive even back then. She could "grow from 6 month to 1 year to 2 years the more you played with her. She came with a bonnet, onesie, skirt,bottle, juice cup shoes and socks and for some reason I think a spoon that had fake peas on it. She could talk move her head. Listen to you and do all kinda of stuff.

She was my best friend Considering I had none or any that really cared about me. I played with her even after she stopped working. It was very traumatic to a 11 year old when there favorite doll despite not working head falls off and the wires are the only thing holding it on. We tried so hard to glue the head on with super glue or hot glue but sadly it would not stay and my mom and day had to throw her away.

Gods I cried for days and days lord I feel like crying now. I have alaway wanted another one so bad but there hard to find. I don't care if she works or had her bottle or juice cup.
I just would love to have one with her bonnet, onsie, skirt and shoes and socks.
God I miss my Doll so much I slept with her I took her EVERY WHERE this doll was my best friend in the whole wide world sigh I still miss her so much.

Dear Santa bring me another baby Heather for Christmas Please.

Oh wow @Ology I have never heard of her. I saw one on ebay but her legs are broken and I can't quite figure out how one would put them back on. She is fascinating. I actually don't know a lot about dolls post 1970's. My dolls were alive as far as I was concerned when I was young. They were my friends too. I would never have thrown the doll away. There is always a way to get a head back on. Let me tell you I have done some wild things to dolls to put limbs and heads back on. lol

Her head pin broke in half and sadly you could not get it out. I am sure now a days something could have been done to get it out and fix it but back then nothing could be done.
I still remember screaming and trying to grab her from my mom as she was carried to the trash bin and thrown away. It was very traumatizing for me as a kid who saw and still see her toys as friends and protectors. Its prob one of the reason I cant stand to see how some people treat there toys or when my niece had a favorite Barbie throw away just cause her hair was messy she cried. I felt her pain.

I still give anything to have another baby heather. Its not just Human things that can traumatize a child things like this can too.

Sure I get that with no problem. I just know if I had been your mother I would not have done that. My mother tossed my blanket that the dog tore up. I screamed and cried for weeks. I could not sleep. She could have put it back together and saved just a little piece of it for me. She did not. I am just different. I would have.

I have been thinking of taking some of my more valuable dolls to a place that can put them on ebay for me. The reason behind this is I cant stop thinking about owning another Baby Heather Doll. Is that wrong? I have some things to pay off to kind people who help me out but after that is it so wrong to want to save for one. Like right now there one on ebay for 40 with all the parts I care about she does not work.

I am probably being silly and all.

They might be on amazon too, have you looked on Toy Wiz? I don't know if they carry Barbie or not. Etsy will let you pay as a guest by credit card. Check there too.
No its not the point of paying I don't have a credit care at all. I am a cash only person or Money order or gift cards kinda person. I could only get these if someone gifted me with the money to get them I should say as I am broke as a horse in June right now. But I do understand what your saying.

Oh yea that is hard, but never underestimate the possibility of finding them second hand either. There is a store in town here that has a Raggedy Ann section. I have no ability to go any time soon due to illness, but maybe when things are better I can check and see if she has this set for you.
