|This doll I found at an outlet that
gets overproduced things. This Michael Jackson-doll
is part of a series called Street Life that is sold in
Europe by the French company AB Toys - they have also
made singing Spice GirlsTM
Michael comes in two versions; one ordinary, mute doll and one that sings. Both are dressed in this black and white outfit. The singing dolls comes with a cassette that you put in his back and when you push a button on his belly, the doll sings "Black and White".
There is also a fashion set with Michael Jackson's red leather jacket and black pants. This set includes a cassette with the song "Beat it". I've bought two dolls as one will have the original set of clothes and the other the red outfit.

and to the right is my singing Jackson-doll.
And here are two boxes with different logos on the front.
|May 9, 1999: I have now changed clothes on one of
the dolls. What great quality they are! The doll is made
in China and that really shows. His arms have that joint
at the shoulder that can make him move his arms any way,
his elbow is jointed and the hands can be turned. He has
molded-on "white shorts with black waistband". The
legs are made of a rubbery plastic with two clicks and
they can be put in any position - he can do the split (to
the sides I mean of course, an ordinary split can any
The clothes then. They all
have labels marked Michael Jackson / China. The black
pants are all lined in white (polyester?) to prevent
staining and perhaps for easier dressing on those
rubber-legs. The "leather"-jacket is also
lined, in red.
The cassettes includes a whole copy of Michael Jackson's hits "Black and White" or "Beat It" and I guess they are of mp3-format to get room in these tiny computerized cassettes.
