Baby Boo would also cry if you turned out the light or if she became uncovered in bed. A memorable moment in my childhood was when she was upstairs in my bedroom and I was in the kitchen and she started to cry on her own. My mother and I looked at each other since we knew that the only way she would have been crying is if the pacifier was pulled out of her mouth. My mom sent ME up to see how it happened only to find the neighbor's cat had slipped into our home and was playing with the doll. Somehow the little scamp had hooked her paw in the pacifier ring and pulled it out!

I wanted one very badly when I was a child in the 1960s. I would go to the local Roses 5 & Dime and just gaze at it. I never got one, but I do remember getting a doll several years later called "Giggles." Every time you pushed her arms in towards her chest, she giggled.

I had a Baby Boo doll when I was young. At the age of 18 months I was diagniosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. I used to carry Baby Boo with me all the time. My Mom said when I was feeling bad (in pain) I always had to have Baby Boo. I carried her around by the hair. It was the weirdest thing. I remember she only had hair left in the middle of her head. I am looking to find a Baby Boo. Anyone with info please email Thank You!

I got a Baby Boo doll for Christmas one year. The only thing I remember about her is that my older sister held her in evey Christmas photo, and I am pouting (and holding a tiny troll doll) in every photo! (She got a doll bed, which didn't photograph as well as a doll being held in your arms.) I still give her grief about it!

My mother had bought one for me and my sister for christmas, I was in the 3rd grade and 8 years old. The following summer a girl I seen from our school came over to play with us and we went in for a glass of water and when we returned both dolls were gone. We were pretty upset. Then about 5 years age my husband went to Savannah GA. An were were in an Antique Store there on the bottom shelf was Baby Boo I began to cry need less to say I bought. She now sits in a rocking chair in the living room. I have been lookin for some place that can clean her up real good and fix the mechanics in her. She still has the orgional clothes. I also need advice on cleaning them they are begining to stain due to the age.

I had a Baby Boo doll as a little girl growing up in the 1960's. I remember that doll to this day, and I'll be 52 soon. I got it for Christmas. I remember she was cold, and I thought it must have been from being on Santa's sleigh! I hugged her, and warmed her up! Oh, those were the good old days!

I received my Baby Boo and a beautiful coach carriage from my Godmother one Christmas morning. Oh! How I loved my Baby boo doll! I would play in the empty apt. below us in Brooklyn and pretend that I was raising her alone while her daddy was fighting in the Vietnam war. It was Baby Boo and I against the cruel world. I am 51 years old and still have my Baby Boo doll-she doesn't work but she is in very good condition.

Christmas 1966; I was almost 2 and Santa brought me a Baby Boo. I cherished her all during my childhood, cut her hair and painted her nails. As a teen, I stuck her in the back of my closet. Imagine my horror when I came home from college one day and found Baby Boo in the Goodwill Box. I rescued her and took my mother to task. The next Christmas (I must have been about 20) I found Baby Boo under the tree, with a new dress and new hair; my mother had taken her to a doll restoration shop, bless her! I married, had 4 children, etc. 5 years ago I pulled Baby Boo from the top of my closet. Her body crumbled in my hands. I was mortified. I still have her head, her arms and legs. You can imagine the ribbing I get from my 4 boys and husband, but I still love Baby Boo Someday, I'll put her together again!!!

I wanted a Baby Boo doll so much for Christmas 1965, when it first came out. I was 11, and my mother said I was too old. Another girl inm my neighborhood got one, so I was over her house playing with hers. I ended up buying one off ebay. She had her original clothing, which can be washed in the machine with just detergent, no bleach. The pacifier can probably be found on ebay as well. Anyway, I'm very happy that I finally got my very own Baby Boo. She is just beautiful!

I am 56 years old and like everyone else never forgot my Baby Boo. I remember she was in a small crib beside my bed and she would cry everytime the light came on. My neice was 10 yrs younger than me and had to have one too. Now I'm wondering how old I really was when I was still getting dolls. So happy to see she was not forgotten by anyone else either. This would have been in the late 60's.

I am looking for a doll from the 1960's called Baby Boo. My older sister had one when we were little and it was her favorite. I got a hold of her Baby Boo one day and cut her hair and pretended to put make-up on her with a ball point pen. I ruined her Baby Boo. So, I thought it would make a nice Christmas present for her this year. Can you help me find this doll?? Thanks!!!

Wow!! Thought I was the only one who loved her Baby Boo doll so much. I had gotten her for Christmas and a few yrs later she had stopped working, even lost her hair. So I later made yarn hair so I have something to "style", and handmade clothes from scraps my mom used making dresses for me. Then she was lost in a tornado, and I still always remember that doll. So one yr I went looking on ebay for one, won both of them. So now I have twin Baby Boos. One was well loved, the other was in almost mint condition, but no pacifiers nor do I know if they cry. Out of all the dolls I have collected, she was the most memorable.

I'm 55 years old. I had a baby boo here in Mexico City where I'm from. For me, she was my real baby. My brother used to imitate her crying. I took care of her very much but also I wanted to know how she cried so, like many other objets, I took all her apart and then put all together. I learnt too many things with My loved doll.

Still have my Baby Boo. She has been playing "Baby Jesus" in the church Christmas pageant ever since I got her back in the 60's....that is more than 40 years now! Never mind that her blond hair, blue eyes, and female gender are not quite a match for a little baby boy of Jewish heritage!

I loved my Baby Boo. I got her in 1966. The following Year I had gotten a Baby Tickles and my sister Got Baby First Step. I have such fond memories. I would love to find each doll again. I remember getting so frustrated with Baby Boo. I was sitting beside the Christmas tree and the lights shined on her, She was the most beautiful doll, but when I stepped away from the tree she proceeded to cry, darkness lol. After I mastered Baby Boo's temperment we had many fun times together.

I'm in my 50's & didn't even know anything about a Baby Boo doll until I just bought one on ebay. The poor baby has had some hard times. Her tiny face wears some leftover stains, couldn't remove them all. I love her just the same. My cat is BooBoo, who we sometimes call him Baby Boo. We didn't want to confuse him.I have given her a new name Keike.I don't have her special pacifier either. Does anyone know if a Tiny Tears pacifier would work for the Baby Boo cryer button or one of the new interative doll pacifiers?

I really would love to find another Baby Boo with her red bow, booties and red pants and white shirt with the yellow duckies on her shirt, and pacifier. My Baby Boo helped me through a difficult time in my life as my parents divorced and me. my sister , and two brothers were sent to live with our paternal grandparents. Baby Boo made it through the first move, and after the second move all dolls and toys disappeared. Our someone felt we had outgrown toys. I was 8 years old. I just know, I told Baby Boo all my worries, and secrets and she was an awesome part of my coping with the changes occuring in my life. I wish the Deluxe Reading Company would do a re-release of the original Baby Boo. Thanks for listening, uhhh er hmmm reading! Baby Boo I still miss you and I'm 54!! LOL

I received Tickles for Christmas 1966 from my 18 yr old brother. The following August, he drown, I was only 9yrs old. Every year since Tickles has graced the under neath of my christmas tree. She is my prized possession. Her tiny record player no longer works, but she still has her original outfit and hair. I would like to have her restored a little, but I just don't trust leaving her in someone else's hands.

I received a baby boo from Santa one year when i was small. she would cry when you took her pacifier and when you held her clse to you she would stop. She had a solar sensor on her chest. I think she was ahead of her time. We were poor and I don't know how my family afforded this doll for me and one for my sister. I carried her around for years! I still have her. her hair is worn and her eye lashes are worn. her eyes are faded but I loved her so much. I wish I could get her restored.

I want to know how I can purchase this doll for my sister. She had one when we were young bought by our grandmother for christmas to her. We had a house fire and lost the doll that ment ever so much too her.Today she is suffering with bladder cancer and has a bladder replaced by her intestines. Today (01/04/2013) she is in Niles Hospital in Michigan. I trully wish I could find this doll for her. She has suffered so much through the years I wish there was a cure for her, but even a gift such as this doll would mean the world too her. She knows I would always try too hunt for this doll. I just want a little happiness her way and it would mean the world to me. If anyone knows how I can get this doll PLEASE notify me at I love my sissy so much I would do and give anything to make a dream of hers come true.

Since my last comment on my newly acquired Baby Boo in my house called Keikee, I have tested her cryer. Although it works manually from pressing billow inside back of her battery case the crier inside her mouth doesn't.There are so many variables to test for problem it can't be done by a regular person. Lots of wiring, button on her chest stuck in "off" or "mute" position or broken, switch in mouth may not work anymore, battery connections could be bad, gears not go around when batteries in to work them-(they are attached to crier's billowing system). Who knows why crier stops working. I can tell you though you do not need the original pacifier to try to see if she will cry. Use a dumdum lollipop stick.You know-(the small one banks give out), that fits in hole in her mouth to hit crier switch.There are a few of these dolls on ebay in original clothes so if anyone is still looking try there. Also once in awhile has them for sale too.Remember people not always know she's a BabyBoo.So be dilligent in looking @ the pics it could be her & seller not know her name.Good luck finding the just right Baby Boo for you!

I loved my Baby Boo so much. One of my favorite things about her was her "real" baby clothes with the little ducks on her blouse. When I came home after a semester of college, I hunted in the garage for the box she had been stored in, desperate to see my Baby Boo. My mother told me, "Oh, your daddy must have taken the box to the Goodwill with some other stuff." I was crushed! I have never gotten over my loss of my sweet Baby Boo.

Just for everyone's FYI, Baby Boo did NOT have a record inside her like Tickles did. Baby Boo had a little plastic bellows and it moved back and forth with the motor and made a squeaking sound, like a dog toy. It sounded nothing like a crying baby. I've repaired dozens of these dolls....very easy fix.

Baby Boo was my favorite doll. I got one for Christmas in 1965. I've searched for one but could not remember the doll's name. Yesterday I saw her in an antique store in Scotsboro Alabama! I knew her the instant I saw her. She is in great shape, although her previous mom did trim her hair. She has original clothes and she is now mine thanks to my mother-in-love who insisted on buying it for me. I think it was a great deal at $40. Her mechanics work but have difficulty in getting her to stop crying, so took batteries out for now. I love, love her sweet face.

I just bought this doll at an antique store because I fell in love with her. She is in perfect shape. Doesn't have the original clothes, but her hair is not cut or ruined. Took me a while to find out what doll it was. Took the back off and the mechanism is all in place and makes noise when manually manipulated but does not work on its own. Seems to be missing a battery connector or something to make it work. Does anyone have the original manual that they could scan that part for me - the part about inserting batteries? My dad thinks if I put a spring on top of each battery to make a connection to the back cover, it might work. please send manual copy to Thank you!!

I still have my Baby Boo from when she came out in the 1960s. I was fortunate to find her original offit at a community fle market about two years ago. I cleaned them in Dawn dish soap starched them and,put new elastic on the vintage offit. I just turned 60 in November and, I think I had this doll for maybe fifty years or more. I am searching for a replacement pasafier as she did come with two originally. At some point I would love to hear her cry again but, her internal machincs need a little work. Does anyone know anyone who knows how to fix these please post. It's nice to see that some of us girls still have our babies and moms telling of their lost little ones. 12-21-2016

I was about 4 or 5 when I think I had a Baby Boo, not sure if it was real or just my imagination, because I wanted one so bad. I remember it could walk, talk, cry, eat, sleep, just like a real baby. One day it was gone, and I blamed the little girl across the street for stealing it. And I ran over to her to beat her up. I to this day think she never really existed, except in my mind. I do miss her still.
