Thanks so much for your Kind words and another irresistible E-mail! Both "DeeDee" and her web site are Adorable! She IS a real live Baby Face! Many people live an entire life time, without ever being lucky enough to find anything, that truly excites them! To find something to be passionate about at such an early age, and to actively and energetically pursue that thing, is not only a gift and a blessing, but I believe, it is a sign of unique Intelligence! I'm pleased and flattered that Baby Face could be one of the first, of many things that, I'm sure will capture Maryjo's imagination in the exciting years that lie ahead her!
I've often wondered how a youngster today, could even begin to decide what "speaks" to them. They are
bombarded with so much, that's here for a day and replaced with something newer, bigger, better the next!
And there are so Many Choices!
By 1991, Galoob was in a real mess! Their bread and butter line of Micro Machines was slowing up, And
even though Baby Face was "Successful", She was not successful enough, to turn the company around, all
by herself! I had bought some Galoob stock several years before at $14 a share. It was all downhill from
there and I waited and waited, hoping to sell it if it ever got back up as high as $12 and now, in spite of BF it
was down to $2 a share!
Any toy company "worth it's salt", with a doll as successful as Baby Face would have known how to maintain
that success! Look what Mattel did with Barbie! Playmates introduced the bland and visually uninteresting,
Water Babies the same year as Baby Face, and they're still just as bland, and they're also Still Around,
