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.

Dolly Rekord


The Averill doll company entered the talking-doll business in 1922 with its Dolly Rekord and her phonographic cylinders. This 26-inch doll, the size of a toddler, spoke nursery rhymes like "Old Mother Hubbard," "Little Boy Blue," and "London Bridge" via the small phonographs inserted into the record player in her torso.
