Remember the BGBB commercial? I was that little girl. It was great fun making the commercial (and the proceeds helped pay for a
year of my college education). The director reminded me of Mr. Magoo. Bald as a cue ball, thick glasses and really funny in ways
that were often unintentional. Unfortunately, my schoolmates teased me incessantly about that commercial, chasing after me,
exclaiming, "I love you Baby Go Bye Bye." But, it was a great doll and a very creative bug car. I also loved the butterfly on/off
switch and the way you could program the car's course by changing the peg placement underneath the car. A very innovative product.
And yes, I did love it. My parents must have it hidden away in storage somewhere at home....

Oh gosh how I loved that doll. I had gotten it for Christmas and that was the best gift ever. There was this one restaurant my family and I would go to growing up. The waitress always set a place for my doll. Brought her a place setting, drink and French fries. I will never forget and thanks for the memories.

I received my Baby go Bye Bye for Christmas when I was in second grade. After Christmas break the class got to bring something for show and tell and of course I brought
Baby Go Bye Bye. Much to my surprise 2 of my classmates each received one for Christmas also. I remember all the other little girls checking out our dolls and buggy’s. The best part about it is we got to stay in at recess and race our dolls down the hallways of the school. One of the girls has remained my best friend today. I still have the doll and buggy in the original box with instructions, and I am hoping one day I may have a granddaughter who can play with it. My two girls never played with dolls.

I absolutely LOVED Baby Go Bye-Bye. My sister and I both got this doll one year for Christmas. I was born in 1964 and my sister was born in 1968. I believe we got here when I was about 6 and my little sister was 2 so that would have been Christmas of 1970. We use to play with our dolls in our driveway. We would race their little buggies together. I still look at old Christmas photos of our Baby Go Bye-Byes and it brings back alot of sweet memories of years past! Now I have a little 5 year old daughter of my own and would love to find one of these dolls for her!!!

Hi I am Jessica and I am 10 years old now. I received my first Baby Go Bye-Bye and her Bumpety Buggy this Christmas of 2008 from my Aunt Pam and Uncle Tony. My crazy Aunt Pamie in the picture below on this web page told you the story of me high jacking her Baby Go Bye-Bye this past summer, and now I have my very own 1969 Mattel doll. I know she is 40 years old and I plan on keeping her and her Bumpety Buggy in the mint condition. My Aunt Pamie bought this doll and her car for me and she also bought one for my cousin who is Casey and she is 9 years old. I have included our 2008 Christmas photos so you can see our happiness and love we receive everyday from this bundle of Joy. Ebay, Aunt Pamie and Uncle T, thank you for such a wonderful Christmas present. I will cherish her for years to come and keep her for my 1st daughter. Thank you for this great website!!
Happy New Year!

I love Baby Go Bye Bye. I still have mine. She will be 40 this Christmas. Unfortunately, I don't have the buggy anymore.
I am going to try and find one in working order for my new niece, Sophia.

Hi this is Pamela Erario. I received my Baby go bye bye at the age of 7 years old on the Christmas of 1970. Here it is just 38 years later and at the age of 45 I hand made her a new set of clothes and gave her a bath. Funny to say the only area that shows any wear and tear, "worn" spot is her lips. She has a lack of lip stick color in the middle of her precious lips due to all the kisses I have given her all these years.
To this date whenever I look at her precious face and blond pig tales, I break into this warm smile filled with inner laughter and happiness. She is so cute. She used to live in my guest bedroom amongst all the other teddy bears and clowns I have collected. But and this is a big one~ my niece 10 year old niece, Jessica, was visiting this summer and after driving her 6 hours back to her home she surprised me and said, "look who came with us Aunt Pamie?" I couldn't believe she had high jacked "Baby Go Bye Bye" and was now asking me if she could stay with here in a new home.
Well with my 60 year old husband, Tony and my 41 year old sister, Paula, looking at me as my 10 year old niece asked the question, I said, "yes". Well after finding this website I must drive 6 hours soon and get her back ... how could I have given my pride and joy up to my 10 year old niece. Well I didn't tell you the punch line about this "FAVORITE DOLL" of mine.
Well when my sister Paula was 8 years old she sat on "Baby Go Bye Bye's" pink convertible and broke it. Oh my world has never been the same since. Till this day we still fuss and laugh about how much that car and doll mean to me. How dear I at the age of 45 give up my Baby Go Bye Bye to a 10 year old. I am going to get her back that it and I'm going on line now to see if I can find her a replacement 1969 convertible.
Maybe this doll had some effect on my life cause today at 45 yrs old, I drive a convertible and wear my long hair in pig tails.
Love to everyone out there that shared the love energy that this little blond bomb brought to us all. Honk Honk

Words can not describe how much I LOVED LOVED this doll. I received her on my one year old birthday (yikes...this was 1969) and my mom said, when I first saw her I started to kiss and hold her like a baby. I think I rarely played with the buggy (which I think is still in my parent's basement) but only the doll. I received a doll every Christmas & birthday but always gravitated back to BaBy (I dropped the Go Bye-Bye). She went with me everywhere which my brother would be absolutely horrified when we flew on an airplane. When my brother & I would get in a fight, I would have to hide her because he would steal and try to bribe me to get her back. I remember playing with her catching her up in the air and she fell & broke. I cried uncontrollably and my mom had to console me. When my dad got home from work, he performed an operation on her (ie taped her) and I was happy again. Needless to say Baby has had several operations and is stuck together by tape. Oh, and she has very little hair but still cute as a button. She was on my bed throughout high school and even brought her to college, then I thought that was to the extreme and brought her back home…..LOL. BUT!! I still have her tucked away in my closet in my own house. I always thought I would give it to my daughter. Hey, kids had their blankets & pillows and I had my BaBy.

I had to have this toy. My dad really wasn't too thrilled with me wanting a baby doll seeing as how I am a male but it also had a car which is a very male thing so I got my Baby Go Bye Bye. I still haven't been able to live down wanting a doll as a wee lad.

I was 3 years old. I came down on Christmas morning, and found my present from Santa straightaway. Riding around in a little butterfly car was my Baby Go Bye Bye. Man I loved that doll. It was my favorite doll from my childhood. I've told my children about the little doll in the butterfly car and think they thought i was loony til I found it tonight.
Brings a big smile to my face.
I haven't seen this doll since my mom gave it away one day when i was at school. I cried like a baby.

I got her when I was 4 or 5. I remember I loved that little butterfly on the buggy. My cousin was so jealous of me, it's still brought up to this day, I'm 39 she's 37.
Little does she know that I was slightly jealous when she got Baby Drowsy Beans, but then had the upper hand with my Barbie Townhouse! ;D

I never got this doll.... BOO HOO!!.. I did want her ever so badly as a little girl, and can't remember what doll I got in her place that Christmas so many years ago, but I am sure I was disappointed that it wasn't Baby Go Bye Bye. We were talking about this doll last night at Christmas Eve dinner, my 2 sisters and I, and about all the other toys we wanted but never got.. oh so sad... anyways... I got online to find some pictures to print up for them... so we could laugh over all those funny memories at Christmas dinner later today!!

I received a Baby go Bye Bye when I was about 4 years old. I had seen the commercials on TV and loved her, so I got her
for Christmas soon after. I was terrified of the car, so my mom threw it away. A few years later we moved to another house. My dad
threw her in the trash, but my mom rescued her and I still have her to this day. She sits in my curio cabinet with all my collectibles,
but she is my favorite, though worn through time. I love her and always will!

I happened upon this site, and thought how neat. My sister and I both had Baby Go Bye-Bye. We loved her. Unfortunately, prior to moving, a large number of miscelaneous packed boxes were stolen from our mother. Many of our toys were among the stolen items, including BGBB. It broke our hearts. I have been searching for her and her buggy, off and on for over 25 years. A couple of my other faves were Velvet (her hair "grew") and Mimi Sings, a doll that played small plastic records of "I'd like to teach the world to sing" in a number of different languages. I found Mimi, but no records.

I am interested in the doll and buggy you have (if you still have it.) Please e-mail me with any response. Thank you

I received BGBB as a Christmas present,when I was 3 years old.Of all the toys I've ever had she remains my favorite.I really don't recall how she came to her end,perhaps she ran over my parent's feet one time to many.BGBB,whatever happened to you? I miss you.

I still have this doll! I don't have the car anymore though, but I sure treasure this little girl. She has such a happy face!

I also had the BGBB doll and loved it. It was so cool to see her ride in the car! I saved the doll and passed it down to my daughter. Unfortunately, one day I found her in the mud in the back yard and I think a dog chewed her up, so Baby went Bye Bye for good.

They simply don't make dolls like this one anymore. This toy is very special to me. It not only takes me back to my wonderful childhood memories, but Baby Go Bye Bye reminds me of my daughter Simmony. Lots of fun and cute as a bug!!!!

BGBB was one my favorite dolls along with drowsy BGBB and drowsy went many places with my family. BGBB looked so much like my cousin Thresa.Thank you for the wonderful memories

I was thrilled to see this site. I must have been around eight years old on Randolph Air Force Base in TExas and I got my doll on Christmas morning. I remember picking her out of the Sears x-mas book and asking for the black one because I thought she was cuter. I remember my parents had to ask Santa about it and well x-mas morn Ihad my black baby go bye bye. I loved her so much. Wish I could have her back now.

Did she have shoes and socks? Thought mine did, maybe I just took some from another doll. Does anyone remember and little socks?

I saw this site and just felt like sharing with everyone about my baby go bye bye doll. I was 3 years old when I received my doll. I thought she was the greatest I loved her buggy . I still have my doll. She does not have her original clothes or buggy. My nephew who is my age thought it would be neat to ride the car. He sat on it and that was the end of the buggy. I have just purchased the doll and buggy and it should be arriving soon. Hope evereyone has a great day.

Baby Go Bye Bye is the best doll and always will be. I loved mine while growing up and took her on vacation with us every year ... she would wave to all the passing cars. We had a VW Van :-) My best friend growing up, Jill, loved my doll as much as I did and always wanted one but never did get her. Over the years I lost mine but a few years ago I purchased one on Ebay and she sits proudly and cutely in my room. I have even purchase a couple more of my little blonde baby ... figure one day I may have granddaughters to pass them along to :-) The best doll ever made!

This was my favorite doll given to me by my favorite person (My Grammie). She worked at Kresgee's and always gave my sister & I the 'cool' doll of the year. I still have my doll but can't remember if she came with shoes or socks. Does anyone know? Thanks Kim email@example.com

Hi There, My husband just surprised me with an original Baby Go Bye Bye with her Bumpety Buggy for Christmas today. He got it on E-Bay. It was my favorite toy as a little girl and it brought me to tears when I opened it. Good luck to all of you searching for one.

I have a baby go bye bye with her original car and box if anyone is interested. I do not have the instructions. I also have a vintage Ad from a magazine dated 1971 in which this doll was advertised. (The ad would be sold seperately) Its amazing how cheap she was back then!
I'm not sure what shes worth, I guess its, what is she worth to you? Will look at all offers.
If you would like to see pics, please post your email and I'll fire them off to you.

I am a triplet and my sisters and I had three BGBBB and we loved them. We played with her all the time. We would push her in her car up to the TV and pretend that she was at the Drive in Movie. We still talk about that doll till this day. I would love to find one with her car.

I loved my baby go bye bye! I thought that must be the best thing in whole world - to ride around waving at folks and getting so much attention. I gave her a bit too much attention and took a bath with her and the "go" in baby go bye bye was never the same. I can't wait to show my kids there really was such a doll! Now on to find stretch armstrong...

I still have and love my Baby Go Bye Bye doll but I don't have her car. I remember changing the pegs under the car and with a turn of the "butterfly key" it would move around in different directions. I even have a picture of me hugging her when I got her for Christmas!

I come from a family with 6 siblings. We never had much money, but my mother had a wonderfoul way of treating us some how. It was the late 60's and I had to go to the doctors to get a shot. My mom said I could pick out a toy to make me feel better and I longed for a Baby Go Bye Bye with the bumpety buggy. We moved to a new city in 1971 and my doll didn't make the move. I think my mom gave her away having to much to pack:-( I know my sisters also lost a Chatty Kathy, Tiny Tears and a Sherly Temple doll. My mother is gone now but in our adult years did find and replace our dolls. I don't think she new how much we loved them. I have the baby, however not the origional dress or the car. Oh how I loved that doll!

I wanted a Baby-Go-Bye-Bye so bad! I must have been 5 or 6 and knew the box under the tree was it! It was the same size and shape I was so happy. Needless to say, my parents, to trick me, had put my name on my brothers present (a basketball) only they didn't remember to change it and I opened it, everyone laughed and thought it was sooooo funny, everyone but me. I was sooooooo disappointed. I never got the doll.

I didn't know others loved this doll as much as I. She was a great "baby" to have as I was growing up. I kept her through 3 house moves, until I let a friend's sister borrow it, and she took it to a friend's house, and I never saw her after that. BUT, I did purchase several on Ebay.com, and I just LOVE her! I received her in San Francisco, around 69-70 for Christmas, also. She is a cute, darling doll. Interesting to find out that I am not the only one that got comfort from having this "dolly" growing up during dysfunctional times. She is definitely worth the price, I think.

This seems to be the same doll I wished for as a little girl. My mother used to collect green stamps in a booklet & I guess she had saved up enough to 'purchase' this doll for me. It was supposed to be for my 9th birthday, but it came in late. I was so excited!! It was a similar doll to the one shown, but I would almost SWEAR it was called the toddler Thumbelina doll. She had red hair in side ponytails, sort of like Buffy on Family Affair. She drove a little VW bug & it was a pale blue color. You'd pull her string, wrap it around the wheel on the back of the car & her feet would move. She'd get the car going, pretty much in Fred Flintstone fashion. You could also hold her little hands & she would walk too on her tippy toes & her head would nod from side to side... Cutest thing I ever saw!! 2 Weeks after I got her, some family members came for a 2 week visit. I got along with the girl so well, I recall I begged her to live with us. I wanted a little sister so bad. She was all for it, after I gave her the doll. I showed her what a wonderful big sister I could be. In truth, she had those blonde Buffy ponytails & I'd have been fiercly jealous over those - probably would have cut them off in her sleep... LOL!!
A HUGE part of me wanted to ask for the doll back when the adults all said no, that she could not live with us. I remember hearing their laughter when we left the room. But I never had the heart to take it back. We had a word we used back then -Indian-giver & I hated anyone ever calling me that word. So the doll went home with her.
I asked her about my doll about 5 years ago & she could not recall whatever happened to it. My grandmother may have given it away or something... I wonder though, since she still has her Chrissy doll & her Baby Chrissy doll..

Wow I thought I was the only one. I received mine on christmas morning too. That little doll helped me through a long sad childhood. I would look at that happy face and it was the only smile in my world. My dad gave her to me on christmas morning and about 12 years later he died on Christmas morning. I bought a doll that was labeled baby go bye bye on ebay and it was not, after searching I found that is a sister of baby go bye bye she is a Wigglie Jigglie doll. Now I can't stop collecting her on ebay when I see no one wants her I add her to my little family.

I don't actually have a memory of this doll but I had one as a kid because we have video (9mm) of this doll and myself from when I was about 3 or 4 on one Christmas morning. Funny to have stumbled upon this website while searching for a discontinued security blanket for my own daughter. Never heard of the Pretzel Jetzel ever but I loved my Easy Bake Oven!!!

My sister bought her for me for learning how to use the potty. I always wondered what happened to her. Now at the age of 39, my husband found one on e-bay in great condition, original dress and perfect hair. I was so excited to open that package. She did not have the buggy but he found that too. It is silly that I am so fond of this doll. All of my memories that far back include her. I am lucky to have a husband that cares enough and wasted his time to make me so happy.

OMG! I was so excited to see this picture! I never, ever thought I'd see 'Baby Go Bye Bye' ever again...and in fact I never even knew that was her name. All I know is that I loved the doll and her "Bumpety Buggy" and I was never more excited the christmas I got her under the tree. There is a picture of me with her that christmas morning way back. I was probably between 3 and 5 years old in the picture,(71-73) but I'm not sure. Every time I ask people if they remember the doll in her little car no one knows what I'm talking about. I was resigned to the fact that she may only exist in my memories for ever after.Thank you SO MUCH for validating my memories and bringing back a wonderful time for me.

Oh My gosh - I wanted one of these sooooo bad when I was a kid. Too bad we had seven kids in the family and could never afford it. I have very distinct memories of longing for this toy. I check ebay once in awhile to see if anyone is selling one. I'm 43 , I should probably let this go :-) Monica in California

There are no words to describe the memories of this doll I have. It is just a feeling that I remember about this doll. My parents ended up throwing out my doll and buggy, I left home and the stuff was in storage for years. I did not realize how precious this doll was to me until a few years ago. I did find another doll at an Antique store in Vancouver, but have not been able to locate a buggy. This would be my fondest dream to be able to have a working buggy, so my daughter could play with her the way I did. No one I know remembers this doll or the cool way her buggy drove around. Glad to know there are others like me out there.

Hi, I have baby go bye bye but am I the only one that had her with a different haircut? mine looks more like pebble flintstone with the bow. My neighbor and I both had the same doll. But in all the advertisements she has pigtails. just wondering?
This memory was added on: March 26, 2006
Why don't they make toys like this now? Do you remember changing her path by altering those things on the power pack? She was so beautiful and she wasn't remote with a cord attatched...she went on her own. I can't believe I gave that precious doll to my neice who didn't understand that she was so special. Not because of the E-Bay craze but because she made me happy. Toy makers could be creating memories like this for our children. Why aren't they?

This doll was my absolute Favorite toy! I have three older sisters and I was lucky enough to be the first one to get a black doll. My parents never like the way the others looked. Through one of our many moves (we were an Air Force family), my precious doll got lost. I would love to have another one. Can anyone help?

Baby go Bye Bye, my Dad and Christmas will be forever synonymous in my heart. I lost my doll many years ago but my father and I would often sit and reminiss about Christmas morning and that beautiful doll. When I lost my father to cancer I went on a hunt and finally was fortunate enough to find a new doll complete with buggy on eBay. Opening that parcel when it arrived was like that Christmas morning so long ago filled with awe and magic. Finding it again was like receiving one last gift my Dad.

I remember getting Baby go ByeBye for Christmas maybe 69 or 70. She was the greatest doll ever made. We moved alot and I'm not sure what happened to her but I will never forget the way I felt on that Christmas morning. I think I will try and find her again.

I loved her!! I am not sure what ever happened to her car but I had the doll for probably 20 years. Ex husband threw her out. I really want to locate one. If anyone knows where I can find one please let me know @ email@example.com
P.S. Am I the only one who thinks she looks like Cindy Brady??

Okay! I am so happy that I was able to find this site! I still have my "Baby Go Bye Bye." For some time I thought my dad throw out the motor for her car. But thank goodness when they were getting rid of "junk" it was popping out at me. So I have everything complete again!!!
I remember when I got her for Christmas. Santa knew exactly what I wanted. I have treated her and the big "Ballerina Barbie" like they were special and now I am glad that I did.
