As an only child who lived a good distance away from her best friends I spent many of my early years creating playmates for myself However the Christmas after I turned five my grandmother brought me Cricket Cricket wasnt a puppy or a goldfish or anything alive She was simply a doll Dolls like Cricket arent made anymore She was nearly as tall as I the box she came in was even bigger with blonde hair and blue eyes Her hair was neatly pulled up with pink yarn bows into pigtails of what I called boing-boing curls and her eyes were round like that of a Precious Moments figurine She smelled of new plastic and baby powder - that sickeningly sweet smell prevalent on preschool toys She was dressed in the height of fashion for a child in the mid-eighties A pink striped sweater over a white blouse a green skirt and pink plastic shoes completed the outfit She stared up at me with surprised blue eyes from my living room floor amidst the Christmas wrap and tissue paper strewn everywhere Continuing to unpack the box I found the best surprise of all - Cricket could speak Pulling up her sweater and blouse we found a tape player embedded in her back Inserting the blue and white tape cassette that came with her Cricket suddenly came to life A tinny little-girlish voice said Hi Im Cricket and her mouth started to move in sync with the words Crickets eyes always fascinated me too - they moved back and forth sometimes stopping in the middle or looking upward it depended on what she was discussing She talked about a lot too set after set of clothes came with new tapes games and books to entertain me Cricket was my best friend - she provided another person to talk to when I was alone I had conversations with her more than I had conversations with actual people
