A HTF Talking Christie Barbie with the rare unoxidized darker raven-black hair color and green bathing suit with pink bottom. Not mint, but nice for display. Note, the 'pull tab' did detach from the string, but the string can still be pulled because there is a small knot to grab. Legs are "frozen" and do not bend at the hip. I did not try to move them, as talkers can crack if forced. The arms do move, which is a bonus. History of the doll is unknown. Since most talkers are mute, I am "guessing" that the talking mechansim was repaired to talk, but I have no way of verifying. Note that some phrases do repeat themselves. I have a link to a video which shows a short sample of her talking. Sold in as-is, as-found condition. Please ask questions in case I missed something important to you. Shipping times are estimates only as the mail is slower these days. Thanks for looking!
