Baby Surprise

Baby Surprise was the baby that came with a cloth pouch that you put in the water so that the cloth would dissolve. Enclosed was the baby's 'papers' and its name, which you would mail into the company so that the baby would be registered to you. Until you put the doll into water you wouldn't know if the baby was a boy or a girl - that was the surprise! The little paper booklet that came with Baby Surprise included several ideas for names for your new baby.

There were also similar toys Puppy Surprise, and Kitty Surprise.

    We never had one, but I think this is the doll that started the whole Puppy Surprise and Kitty Surprise.

    I do believe I remember these. Were these the large dolls or the small ones? because there were some that were around $1.00 a piece that were small almost quint size and they came with an accessory.

    I remember wanting one of these so badly. If I remember correctly, there was a chance that you could get twins. I walked up and down the ailes at KBToys lifting each box up to see which one might be heavier. I never got one of these dolls, but I sure loved my Puppy Surprise.

    Wow! This was my favorite childhood doll, I think I got this as a gift when I was in kindergarten. I'm in my early twenties now, and I still have her. As I recall, the doll came with a small paper booklet full of names, to help you choose one. It also was wearing a baby bonnet in the box, so you could not tell if it was a boy or a girl doll right away. I was so excited when I put that pouch in water and found out my doll was a girl! I haven't heard of or seen these in ages, I wish Mattel still made them.
