Retro Toy Chest: Barbie talks! (1969)

Once upon a time, Mattel experimented with a talking Barbie doll, and, in addition to Barbie's British friend, Stacey, you can imagine they tried this experiment with the rest of the line. Mattel had the talking See & Say toys out at the time, which may have led to this experiment.

Eve Plumb (The Brady Bunch) stars in this ad.

Sadly, the talking dolls are off the market, nearly 50 years later, but are probably on collectors' wish lists.

Ok, so I missed Teen Talk Barbie, which didn't last long, either.
