Baby Beans

"Soft as a baby's bottom!"

Baby Beans were produced by Mattel from 1970-1984. They were soft bodied baby dolls stuffed with polystyrene bean bag balls, and plastic heads. Meritus took over production from 1991-98 with their own line, and Estrela had their own concurrent line to Mattel in Brazil during the 1970-80's and again in 2011-12. They were very popular, hence the sheer amount of them all over the world!

Talking Baby Bean

"I'm so playful and funny! Pose so many baby-like ways...I sit, stand, lie down, cross my legs, even stand on my head! I'm soft foam stuffed, extra floppy, super-cuddly with hair on my plastic head."

Talking Baby Beans was produced from 1972 for over 10 years. She had a pull-cord on the back of her neck to activate a small record, which said one of eight phrases each time.

  • I Love You
  • Baby Hungry
  • Night-Night
  • Kiss Baby
  • I'm Sleepy
  • Say Bye-Bye
  • ?
  • ?

Some had plastic hands and some had fabric hands. The dolls with plastic hands also had button down the front, whereas the fabric hand version did not.
