Despite several years of experimentation and development, the Edison Talking Doll was a dismal failure that was only marketed for a few short weeks in early 1890. The doll was an almost instant failure for several reasons. The crank mechanism had to be turned at a steady speed in order to hear the one individually recorded nursery rhyme. The steel needle caused the wax record to wear out. Plus the high price was equal to about two weeks salary for the average family. Production ceased at the beginning of. 1890 and the dolls. All Edison dolls are very scarce today but those with their original phonograph intact are extremely rare, with only a few survivors known to exist.
