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!
Jessica M. Barnes

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.

Pamela 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 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!!!!

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.

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!
