I make a lot of things for Chatty Cathy dolls which came out in the 60's. They had a pull string on the back of their neck and they talked when you pulled the string. Mattel made them. There are many collectors out there now for the Chatty dolls as they grew into a whole family of them. These red shoes (postively exactly like the originals) are made of red suede leather and went with the red/white dress with her red corduroy coat with the white fur collar. We have them for sale on eBay along with other things I make for Chatty. (The red shoes are new and will go on eBay on Monday night Nov. 19, 2007.
