This was my favorite doll in 1972. She had a pink watch and "mommy" got one too. When you turned her watch to different times and pulled her string she would say things like "12:00, time to eat lunch". She also had pink plastic accessories so you could feed her and give her a nap etc.

I had a timey tell doll in fact I still have it and it was one of my least favorite dolls. It was really hard and not at all cuddly. It was very annoying when it talked.

Timey Tell was my favorite doll in 1972. Everywhere i went, she went. A few years back, i found her on ebay, in the box, with all of her accessories and clothes. She looks brand new. Her previous owner rarely played with her. Unfortunately, the pullstring is not working. Even so, she brings me much joy and i love to see the little girls in my family play with her (under close supervision of course!)

I loved my Timey Tell. She had the nicest blonde hair. I played with her until the string broke and she couldn't talk anymore. I remember begging Santa Claus for her and was ecstatic when I opened the box with her in it!

I had a Timey Tell doll has a child and gave it to my friend when their house was destroyed by fire. I have thought about this doll for a lot of years. Imagine my suprise when I went to a second hand store last week and bought her for 7.99. She is perfect except pull string not working.

I asked Santa for a Timey Tell and got Flip Wilson/Geraldine instead! Pull his string and it would insult me with things like, "The ugly people know who they are, don't they..." You spoiled girls actually got Timey Tell!? I'm jealous!

I would love to get a timey tell doll for my daughter. She is 43, and still talks about her timey tell doll. Anyone know where I can locate one.

I wish I still had my timey tell doll. There is a Christmas Pic of my brother opening a gift under the tree which had a ton of still unopened gifts and in the background you see me about four years old playing with the doll. No clue and could care less that there were more gifts to open. I want that doll again!

I loved my Timey Tell too. I cut mine and her hair when I was about 4 years old so she looked a little different than the other Timey's.

Wow...I thought I was the only Timey Tell lover. The only doll I really loved was my Timey Tell. She was the only doll to ever wear a watch and tell time. Here I am now, and I am a Watch Collector, many of them luxury watches such as Cartier, Omega, TAG Heuer, Maurice Lacroix, Rolex, Movado, etc. And it all began with Timey Tell...

If I remember correctly you need the "Mommy" watch for her to talk you are supposed to set both watches to the time and then pull her string so find a doll with the "Mommy" watch and you should be in business

I never had one, but a girl in my first grade class named Cynthia did. She brought it in for Show & Tell, and we all loved taking turns playing w/ it.

I found one today at a 2nd hand store for $3! She has her watch & original dress & the pull cord but she doesn't talk. I had never heard of a Timey Tell doll before today. She needs a good clean but I can't wait to pretty her up!

does any one know any of Timey Tell's sayings? I only remember "Lets play ring toss at 10"

I still have my Timey Tell doll. She no longer speaks and her dress was long lost (she is actually wearing one of my baby dresses now) but I would never dream of letting her go. And not only did I learn to tell time with her but I am a bit of a watch hoarder too, unless it is normal to have 50 or so watches. :)

In the early 70's I got the white Timey Tell and eventually gave her away. I was able to purchase a talking African American one and I don't remember them existing back in the 70's. her watch isn't accurate anymore, but I love her anyway.
