Bouncin' Babies were (was?) a doll line in the 80s and early 90s.
I am going to date myself here, but I got this doll in 1991.
I call her Rachel! The Bouncin' Babies were battery operated. They could do different things , like crawl. Rachel can move her head. This is activated by removing her pacifier.
You can see a commercial, which includes a doll like Rachel, here! It seems that her clothes have faded a bit over the years.
Rachel came with a lot of furniture as well. This included a bassinet, a walker and a rocking horse. I have all of them, I think, but I didn't find all of them for this post.
I still think she is adorable! Unfortunately, I left the battery inside her and it corroded. This is so stupid, because I had another battery-operated doll and I knew better.
Rachel has hard plastic limbs, but they are loosely attached to the body and can flop around. They can go into nearly any pose, but don't necessarily stay that way. Overall, her body is kind of cuddly, considering that her actual body is mostly battery pack. I wouldn't have liked the crawling doll with the hard, unposeable limbs nearly as much.
And yes, she has purple eyes! Very 90s.
I hope you enjoyed this look at the beginnings of my life-long doll obsession!
Confessions of a Dolly Lover wrote a post about her Bouncin' Baby. I found out from the box pictures that she shared that Rachel was originally called the "Cuddly Baby!" That explains why she has some foam wrapped around her body, making her feel cuddly in my hand. The other Bouncin' Babies do not seem to share this. I still think I picked the best Bouncin' Baby, haha.
