The Christina Aguilera celebrity doll depicts as her 20 year old self, an American singer. The doll was made by Yaboom Toys, Inc. in 1999. This is the Genie in a Bottle: Song Collectors version. The museum also has the Fashion Collectors version (as a standard fashion doll) in the collection.
It is an Official Singing Characters Doll that with a push of a button on the doll’s belly will play the entire “Genie In A Bottle” song .

The doll is wearing the jean outfit Aguilera wears while on the deck by the beach in the “Genie in a Bottle ” music video. On top a faux suede brown halter top decorated at the bottom with brown lace is under a silver buttoned denim jacket. The jean jacket is tacked to the halter top on both sides at the front opening to keep it in place. It is removable if you cut the threads.
On the bottom is a matching pair of below the knees cuffed jeans with a silver button fake fly on the front and a working Velcro fly in the back. No underclothes and the pants are removable. On the feet are a plastic pair of high heel sandals.
The singing doll requires four LR44/A76 button batteries to play. It has an on/off switch, demo/full play switch, and a volume control wheel on the sides. The speaker is in the belly. A removable white ribbon tabbed audio cartridge slides into a slot on the back above the screw locked battery compartment. Like all singing and talking dolls that take batteries, they should be changed every 5 years or so because they will leak and ruin the doll.
The face has painted blue eyes and pink lips and a toothy smile. The blond hair is shoulder length and very straw like.
After photographing the doll, all the hair started falling out at the roots in clumps. I assumed it was because the chemical leak from the batteries but after purchasing the fashion doll version I noticed the hair roots also seemed to be weak.
A reroot on the hair restored the Christina Aguilera doll and improved the overall appearance. I have included a photo of the new and improved Christina.
The doll is articulated at the neck, shoulders, and hips with ball joints. The knees are click joints and the waist twists back and forth. The feet are soft and in fixed high heel position. The arms are stiff at a slightly bent angle.
