The Rosie O’Donnell plush celebrity doll portrays her as herself in cartoon form. The talking plush doll called the “Rosie O’Doll” was made by Tyco Preschool Toys in 1997. O’Donnell is an American comedian, talk show host, and actress. Rosie O’Donnell donated 10% of the profit to Rosie’s Kids. The museum also has the 1999 Rosie O’Donnell “Friend of Barbie” doll in the collection.
The plush doll wears sewn in sleeveless shirt, blue polyester pants, and black satin shoes. A removable matching blue polyester jacket with blue satin collar, embroidered pink button (Velcro button enclosure behind it) and pink “Rosie” embroidered chest patch finish off the outfit. The ears are decorated with pink embroidered sewn in earring. The brown hair is quilted stuffed brown felt like material on the oversized head. Brown eyes and light pink lined with dark pink are embroidered on the face along with a tiny stuffed button type nose.
Underneath the jacket the talk box and battery compartment are enclosed and tied to the inside the body with cloth ties, Bought as never opened, I assume the three dead AA batteries are original. Amazing after 23 years there were no leaks and kudos to the designers for using Eco batteries that have proved to be safe for both the doll and children. There is no expiration date on the batteries so it makes it more likely they date back that far when they didn’t necessarily date them.
If you squeeze the belly of the doll it says one of five phrases. The quality of the sound box and sound track are exceptionally clean and clear for a doll.
