Mission accomplished!! just paid for the Merri Puffalump doll via Canadian eBay. Thanks again so much for helping to locate this doll. I owe you big time. God Bless you and yours 🙂
Thank you so much, and thank you to your “helpers” too!
[pinit] I am searching for a pink Fisher Price Puffalump baby doll. The one my daughter sleeps with at (17 yrs) is 16.5 years old. She loves it and calls it Sister Baby. She received it at Christmas the year she was born. She was 6 months old at the time. We bought others and she named them Brother Baby, Other Brother Baby, Mommy Baby and her cherished Sister Baby. The others are around somewhere, but the original sister can’t be replaced.
I am searching for one to have to give to a grand-baby one day. I know they are hard to come by, and they are so soft and washable. Her Sister Baby has been sewn & re-stuffed over and over. We don’t dare try and wash her anymore, and eventually my daughter will put her away for safe keeping.
She only recently introduced her boyfriend to “Sister Baby”. She usually would hide her in the closet whenever he would come over. She doesn’t actually hold her anymore – just wants to keep her in bed where she belongs.
Sending a picture would not really help. She is disfigured, her head is unattached at the jaw line, and her face has dark patches from the washer and dryer. She has no removable clothes and no Velcro closures.
Thanks so much for taking the time to look…
I sent Catherine to one of the sites I use for Puffalump research, and she found a photo of her doll! So now we know that it is MERRI she is looking for!
