My Baby All Gone
I fell in love with this doll once I saw it advertised on TV. Part of my Saturday morning ritual as a child was to watch all the cartoons on ABS-CBN. Before I could see Zelda and Jem (scheduled at 10:30am–I know this because I took my cartoon viewing seriously!) I had to watch 4KidsOnly, a magazine show that reviewed toys. They featured BabyAll Gone and as gullible as I was back then, I could hardly contain my excitement when I saw that this baby acts like a real one!
I had uncovered the truth about My Baby All Gone only this year. I was talking about it with my college classmate last week. I couldn’t stop wondering where Baby All Gone’s food goes after she drinks her milk and eats her food.
According to my friend, Baby All Gone’s milk bottle has a sponge inside that ‘absorbs’ the milk so it seems like she’s drinking the milk. The sponge then returns the milk to the bottle when it’s not tilted at an angle. The can of cherries turned out to be a disappointment. My friend says that the spoon with cherries has a magnet attached to it so that it will seem that she’s eating food.
I feel like the child who discovered that Santa doesn’t exist! Haha.
