Who said boys can’t play with dolls? When Little Man was around 3 he was desperate for a doll to play with and I let him have one of the dolls I had as a young girl. He loved her and used to dress her up and feed her but now 3 years later all he is interested in Playstation, boxing and board games.
When I had the chance to review the Baby Born interactive doll, I wasn’t to sure if Bubs would like it or not. I thought he might but not as much as he actually did. He couldn’t wait for me to get her out of the box and to feed her the bottle. Wow how much have dolls changed since I was young, about 26 years ago.
As soon as I got Baby Born out Bubs was feeding her and putting her on the potty. If I asked to have a go with her he wouldn’t let me, she was his baby which is really cute.
Baby born retails at £49.99 and I feel she is excellent value she comes with…
- Body suit and a hat
- spoon and plate
- portion of porridge
- dummy/dummy chain
- birth certificate
- bracelet for Baby Born and yourself
She also can… Cry real tears, controlled wetting and pooping, arms and legs which move and eyes which open and close. She feels beautiful quality which I knew she would because Zapf have been around years and are know for the amazing quality of their products.
She has a hard body which is great because your child can bath her which I know children like to do. When I was younger I always had the soft body dolls which you were unable to bathe. You can treat her like a real baby and with all the features and functions she is so life like.
Bubs is 2 years old and he loved everything about her, he wasn’t quite able to change her nappy so I gave him a hand with it. Hopefully she might help him to potty training himself. The potty did come in handy when he wanted to sit her up to eat though.
I already know that Baby born is a massive hit with him, he is so gentle and caring with her and it really is beautiful to watch the way he treats her and looks after her.
