Retro Dolls

Looking for the Mrs. Beasley doll from the "Family Affair" tv show?

What's a Mrs. Beasley doll? Mrs. Beasley was the doll of Buffy, on the "Family Affair" sitcom and she was very high in demand back then and now she's an in demand collectible doll.

With her polk-a-dot outfit, grandma glasses and yellow hair, she was a one of a kind to any little girl and is a special treasure for any doll collector. She was my favorite doll and still remains one of my favorite memories.

About Buffy's Doll - More Mrs Beasley Dolls

Mrs. Beasley made her debut on the hit 70's show, Family Affair, as Buffy's favorite doll. Buffy, played by Anisa Jones, went almost nowhere without her special doll. The doll has a pull string that makes her talk and she has about eleven different sayings. Her blue outfit with the yellow polka dots and big yellow shoes, plus her cute glasses are one only a few reasons this little doll fast become a favorite for little girls everywhere. We all wanted "Buffy's doll" and many of us were lucky enough to have received her as a gift.

Now, there's a newer version of Mrs. Beasley, with the same retro style clothes, but recorded now with Cheryl Ladd's voice. Same cute doll, just a new voice. Great nostalgic gift for someone you know that loved Family Affair and maybe even had the doll as a little girl! Definitely sure to stir up some great memories.

      I had a friend who had a Mrs. Beasley doll. I don't know why, but I never wanted one. Mrs. Beasley just never appealed to me. I think I wanted dolls that portrayed kids instead of adults.

      Gosh this brings back some memories. I remember the show was canceled and I was so disappointed as it was one of my favorites.

      I wanted one of these so bad when I was a kid! My friend had one and I used to play with her all the time, she was the kind with the string to speak :) Blessed!
