The Elton John celebrity was manufactured by Yaboom Toys in 1999. It is the Singing Crocodile Rock version. A button on the doll’s stomach is pushed for it to sing.
Proceeds from the sales of the doll went to his AIDS foundation.
Accessories are a pair of rose colored sunglasses, red loafer shoes (no socks) and a black and silver microphone. The singing mechanism has a cartridge for Crocodile Rock and uses four LR44/A76 button batteries. There is a switch for the two programs (30 second demo and full versions) of the song. There is also a volume control. The audio track cartridge pulls out of the back with a white ribbon tab above the screw secured battery compartment.
