Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Hush Li'l Baby

baby doll

Mattel, Inc.'s Hush Li'l Baby gave little girls a dose of real motherhood. The battery-powered doll rocks herself in her own little cradle. But she also "fusses, frets, and squirms" until her little mama gives her a bottle or pacifier. Then, the life-like doll calms down.
