She had a string pull and she talked, I don't remember her phrases, though.

I had this doll too - Mattel Talk up Doll. Said 8 phrases including... "My feet are getting closer" "Weeee Boing" "I'm so silly" I had the brown haired one in the mid 70's and she was hard plastic and very small.

I had one which had brown hair. there was something wrong with it ?not sure if the pull cord was broken, so it had to be replaced. When it came back it had blond hair. One phrase I remember was "Will you play with me" I got this doll around 1972.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault: TV commercial which displayed all the various Chatty Cathy dolls. Most prominently: Charming Cathy, the one with dark-framed eyeglasses and straight blonde hair. This aired on the "Bugs Bunny Show" over ABC (9/12/64). The first Chatty Cathy's came out in 1960. Originally said 11 phrases ("May I have a cookie?"), later expanded to 18. Charming Chatty had a different talk feature, requiring the owner to purchase small records which were inserted into a special player built in the torso. Whitman Publishing issued a coloring book of Charming Chatty. Mattel discontinued most of the Chatty Cathy line in 1966, keeping Charming Chatty an extra year. Higher production costs and declining sales the reasons. Charming chatty first made the scene in 1963.
