Tippy Tumbles

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Tippy Tumbles was a battery-operated doll that used to do somersaults and flips. She was so cool for her day (in the 70's). Tippy Tumbles came with a little suitcase which held her batteries and she had short hair. I still have two of them. The adverts were great too.

    I still have my Tippy Tumbles although the little suitcase/battery box is long gone and her arm keeps coming off. I remember she made a really loud noise when she was switched on which was a bit creepy. And she looks spooky in my attic with her staring blue eyes and manic smile!! I have taken her to car boot sales with me to attract customers. Funnily enough no one has ever asked to buy her....

    It was my favorite doll. I think I overused her...When it broke down, it started leaking oil from the battery case, and I cried for ever, because I couldn't get a new one...

      Hello, Do you still have the Tippy Tumbles Doll. I would love to purchase 1 for my daughter. We bought her 1 for Christmas in 1970`s, and she loved it. then 1 day when we were on holiday the house was burgled and the doll along with other items were stolen. My daughter was heartbroken and always talks about her favourite doll.

    I had a tippy tumbles in the late '60 - I was never allowed to play with it when football was on the TV as it made the picture go all fuzzy! Have promised that I will try and get one for my daughter!

    Oh my goodness yes I remember my Tippy Tumbles, she had a pink suitcase for batteries, and navy colored body suit with I think a striped top, and a bad short haircut, I think she was blond.I loved her, and also my red headed chrissy doll too. Those were the days,I was born in 63, I had the first easybake oven, it was yellow and I think I still have it..wow its old.

    I unlike you lucky people, never owned a Tippy Tumbles. I longed for one, asked Santa, I can remember even praying, but as the second elest of eight children, raised soley by my lovely Mother, alas I never got one. I remeber her striped top, and her navy leggings. Now at the age of 47, I still give my Mum a hard time(tongue in Cheek), that they only thing I ever really really wanted was Tippy. I remember in later years my baby sister wanted a special doll (expensive), santa brought hers, but a few of us were working by that time. So to those who have them still cherish them, to those who gave theirs away...Shame on you. Pauline h

    I remember my Tippy Tumbles. I left the batteries in the blue box thing for too long and she never worked after that.
