I was six years old back in 1987 when I was very ill with measles, I was lying on the sofa in a dark room when my mood suddenly lifted. I was presented with a huge box, I ripped it open and what I saw was a beautifull doll with red hair. Her name was Julie.
Julie had a pink sweater with a collar and matching dark pink trousers and light pink trainers. Julie was like a small child. I turned her on from the back and she said "Hi I'm Julie. Lets have some fun". When Julie talked her mouth moved a little and her eyes moved up and down.
Julie had her own book which she read the pictures from and she touched the book with her small metal sensors on her fingers.
We learnt to read together. Julie was tickleish too when I pressed her tummy! When we stoped playing we turned the lights out and Julie went to sleep. I felt a lot better by then, so we cuddled up together till morning. That was 18 years ago and I still treasure her now.
Apparently there "once was a competition to create the greatest doll for the daughter of the king", and so, Julie Doll was born. It was said to be a doll that understood you, but after two minutes or so, it was pretty obvious that her words were just on a loop!
