Soft Talking Madeline, is 17" tall. In Ludwig Bemelmans classic tale, Madeline is the shortest little girl in Miss Clavel's class. She mostly wears blue and yellow outfits, and this 70th Anniversary Soft Talking Madeline doll is adorned in the yellow outfit and yellow hat with a black ribbon. With a squeeze of either Madeline's left hand, or her right hand, you will hear her say a few phrases.
This soft plush Madeline doll speaks both French and English. The phrase is English on one hand, and French on the other. I think it is a great toy for my Madelyn. She loves to have tea parties with her!
I think this doll is made with great quality! I love that the hat does not come off, and that the dress is secure. So often clothes for dolls get lost. There are no buttons, or pieces that can fall off this great doll, either. I find that a great safety feature. There are books (hardcover and softcover) about Madeline. You should check out the original Madeline book. We got this book, and it is great! There is also another book called: Cats of Rome that looks great!
You can find this Soft Talking Plush Madeline doll at Toys "R" Us for $24.99.
