Times Past: A good listener (and more?) for $9.95
Would you really buy Gretchen, the 5-foot-4 inflatable doll, to, as the ad says, "dress up your office"?
Or to use as a "conversation piece" for your clients?
Or to make burglars think there's "somebody at home"?
Or as a toy for your daughter?
But how would you rationalize the description of "human-like softness" and the "please rush" mailing option?
