Jill the Talking Doll (With the Enormously Long Neck)

1980s, Toys 2 1319

Jill seems to be a creepy, tween girl version of Teddy Ruxpin. Let’s lay out a few facts:

  • Freddy Krueger-esque stripes.
  • The thin, long neck of a giraffe.
  • A smile that never fades.
  • A jaw that barely moves.
  • Animated arms that flail about.
  • The height of a toddler with the appearance of a tween.
  • She has an obsession with being human.
  • …and worst of all, she also speaks in French.

Honestly… is there one aspect of this toy that doesn’t say “creepy”?

    I’m pretty sure this came out when I was in between 23 -25. I’m almost 50 now. What’s that tell ya?! (smile)

    They sold these when I worked at Hill’s Dept. Store, in the mid-80s. Creepy isn’t the word.
