My Baby All Gone

February 8, 2007 at 12:07 am 22 comments

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.

    i think the bottle has another cylinder inside, so that the amount of liquid required to “fill” the whole bottle would fit inside the cap. the whole middle part of the milk bottle is actually empty, and the “milk” only fills the wall of the cylinder. the trigger mechanism atop the bottle would be the one that acts as the mechanism to let the liquid flow to and from the cap and the double cylinder.

    just my take😀

    I had one as a child too. My mom bought me one at my insistence. I don’t know why I wasn’t that hmmm…. I can’t tell.

    JAKU: i think the bottle has another cylinder inside, so that the amount of liquid required to “fill” the whole bottle would fit inside the cap. the whole middle part of the milk bottle is actually empty, and the “milk” only fills the wall of the cylinder. the trigger mechanism atop the bottle would be the one that acts as the mechanism to let the liquid flow to and from the cap and the double cylinder.

    exactly what I had noticed. It’s as if the milk is sandwiched between the 2 cylindrical glasses. So, there’s a hollow part in the middle, see? it doesn’t fill all the way up.

    and the cherries, ah! I love the smell… hmmm. I wonder where my mother keeps it now. *goes to the bodega*

    I had one of those dolls when I was a little girl.
    I had told my 4 yr. old about it.

    Anyone know where I can find one /

    I had Baby All Gone! I remember I got her for Christmas a couple years after I initially wanted her. The cherries didn’t have a magnet. On the back of the spoon was a little sliding lever thing. Think of how an exacto knife works. Something like that, but it’s flush with the spoon. You’d put the empty spoon into the cherry jar, and when you did, there was a little plastic piece that slid the lever on the spoon, making the cherries come out onto the spoon. When you touched the cherries to her mouth, they’d go back into the spoon because the spring would release them. Oh! I know. Ok, it works like a pen. Like the ones that you can pick a color, and you push down/slide down the color you want. Then to release it, you push a button and it goes back in. Same concept,

    MY GOSH!

    Naalaala ko itong commercial na ito!

    Pero na-pull out yung manikang yan sa market dahil sa isang incident sa US o dito na yung darili ng bata eh na stuck sa bibig ng manika!😄

    Oh well, brings back good memories talaga…

    Just wanted to tell everyone that Hasbro, I believe is releasing a doll that comes with a “magic” spoon so that the doll can “eat” “bananas”…Unlike the doll of our generation, this doll has 25 different phrases and operates using batteries!

    BABY ALIVE BABY ALL GONE
    (Ages 3 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $24.99 /Available: Fall 10)
    Little girls will know it’s time to feed BABY ALIVE BABY ALL GONE doll as she speaks more than 25 sounds and phrases to let “mommy” know she’s hungry! This curlicued cutie is ready to eat her delicious “bananas,” which “mommy” can “feed” BABY ALL GONE again and again using the “magic” spoon. To fill the spoon, girls simply place it into the bowl of “bananas.” Girls will enjoy watching BABY ALL GONE “eat” as the bananas “disappear” when the spoon touches her mouth. BABY ALIVE BABY ALL GONE makes real baby noises as she “gobbles” the “bananas” up and “drinks” from her sippy cup, which has “magic” disappearing “juice!” Requires 3 AAA batteries, included. Available at most major toy retailers nationwide and on HasbroToyShop.com.

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers!

  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]

  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
