Baby Born – The Doll That Does It All

My girls are at a stage where they love playing “mommy”. They are role playing traditional momma roles and one thing the just adore is feeding their babies.

You can imagine their utter delight when we were sent the Baby Born Soft Touch Doll for review.

I have talked about how great these dolls are in a previous post, and I wanted to do an updated review seeing as the brand has gotten bigger and better with a whole new range of accessories also on the market that will appeal to any age.

The doll is super soft, almost plush. So it’s perfect for cuddles and even makes a great toy to cuddle with at night unlike most hard plastic baby dolls.

The Baby Born play concept grows with the child and there are no limits in terms of the imagination.

The soft touch Baby Born dolls are able to perform 9 life like functions. They can drink from their bottle and wee in their nappy or in the potty. She can be fed (matching bowl and spoon included) and then does a poo in the potty as well.

But perhaps the feature my kids love the best is that she cries real tears when her upper body is squeezed!

Baby Born dolls are also perfect for the bath. I love the fact that there are no batteries to fuss with, kids are able to start playing immediately.

Significant improvements have gone into the new models to ensure full mobility in the arms making dressing and undressing a breeze. Gently laying down the Baby Born doll will see her closing her eyes and drifting off to dreamland.

There’s a full range of accessories to choose from that will complement your Baby Born doll, including car seat, feeding chair, changing bag, bottles and feeding accessories, carrier, toilet and tooth are spa. You can also buy extra nappies and food sachets when they run out as these are sold separately.

If your little one is at an age where they’re exploring parental roles in their playtime, I’d highly recommend a Baby Born Doll.

Review: Baby Born Doll

Baby Born dolls was introduced to the market in 1991 and since then more than 22 million have been sold! Prima Toys gifted the Twincesses with their own Baby Born dolls and it’s easy to see why they are so popular.

The quality of the dolls are outstanding. The new soft-touch body feels supple, adds a greater dimension of realness, and makes you want to cuddle the doll even more. 

The dolls are 43cm in length which makes them perfect for even the littlest of toddlers. There’s options of boy or girl dolls as well as a doll with a darker skin tone. There’s even a choice of an older sister or brother doll.

The Baby Born dolls come with a full range of accessories including a potty, pacifier, nappies, baby food, bottles, bowl and spoon.

But perhaps what makes them so very unique is the 9 life-like functions that all work WITHOUT batteries. Yep, you heard that correctly – no batteries required!

So let’s run through the functions the Baby Born doll can perform:

 She can sleep. The dolls eyes automatically close when the baby is laid down.
 She can move. The dolls arms and legs bend and move easily allowing for painless dressing and undressing.
 She can drink. Baby Born dolls come with an adapted bottle from which they can drink water. The Twincesses love to pop the bottle into their dolls’ mouths to feed them.

 

 She can wet her nappy. Whilst actual parents may loathe the nappy-changing regime, the Twincesses eagerly await a chance to change their baby’s nappies.
 She can wee. By pressing on the doll’s belly button, she can make a wee on her potty.

 She can eat. I think this function sets the Baby Born range apart from other drink-and-wet dolls. The Baby Born dolls comes with sachets of baby porridge that is specially adapted to the range.
 She poops. What goes in must come out, right? A press on the intuitive belly button and the baby porridge is dispelled into the potty, much to the delight of my toddlers.
 She can cry. Real tears! A simple press on the upper chest made tears flow liberally from her eyes. This was the winner for my girls…as you can see in the video below.

 She is fully bathable. The doll can be completely immersed in water, so your little one doesn’t have to part with her best friend when she takes a bath. 

The Baby Born dolls provide hours and hours of fun for my girls. They adore giving their dolls a leisurely bath, which has been the perfect activity for this scorching summer days. 

They take so much delight in the doll’s bodily functions (should I be worried? Lol) On another note, if your toddler isn’t yet potty-trained the Baby Born doll in my opinion would make the perfect companion for your little one during this dreaded phase. Children learn by example after all.

The doll comes with cleaning instructions, so you don’t have to worry about mould build-up or clogging the functioning parts.

With special added touches like their very own birth certificate and matching friendship bracelets for both the doll and your toddler, the Baby Born dolls have thought if literally everything.

The quality is immaculate, so I can safely say this doll will be around for ages, and since it has been consistently holding my children’s attention this past week, I doubt it will be relegated to the bottom of the toybox anytime soon.
