 Here is a popular doll during the early 1950s that came with a hefty price at the time ($24).  Her box describes her as "Playmate".  Collectors know her as Noma the Electronic Talking doll made by Effanbee.   A very large 28" tall, she was able to talk, sing, laugh, and even pray at the touch of a magic button on her battery compartment in her tummy.  She is all original.  Her head is hard plastic, her limbs are early vinyl which have a tendency to get sticky and turn darker with age.

 
 


Her plastic battery operated talking mechanism is marked Noma Electric Company.  Unfortunately my doll does not work anymore, so I don't know what she sounds like, but the box states she has a real human voice.
