Living Baby Tender Love

baby doll

Baby Tender Love, a variation of a drink-and-wet doll, first appeared in Mattel catalogues in the early 1970s. Though several dolls in the Baby Tender Love line doll had nonposable bodies, the Living Baby Tender Love doll came with jointed limbs so that it could sit up on its own. The doll had soft, life-like skin made of "Dublon." Mattel made the doll in a talking version, one with an African American complexion, and one with anatomically correct features.
