It warms my heart to see Emma nurturing her baby dolls. They’re preparing her for the real baby doll that will be making his or her appearance next Spring. Well, sort of. I mean her baby dolls don’t make noise or eat, or need to be changed, although she likes to make believe that they do.
When she first saw the My Baby Alive Doll in the store several weeks ago, I watched as her eyes lit up with excitement. I knew this toy would be a must-buy for her Christmas list this year.
The My Baby Alive Doll comes complete with a dress, bib, bowl, spoon, bottle, diapers and doll food packets. This doll will take her experience as a “mommy” to the next level. She says over 30 sayings to tell mommy when she’s sleepy, hungry, or needs to be changed. Emma really gets a kick out of this, as it makes her baby doll seem more, well alive.
A great toy for girls aged 3 and up, this doll retails for $39.99. It’s a little high for a baby doll, but considering all that she does and says I can see Emma spending a lot of time taking care of her.
Another cute doll we’ve been seeing in the stores is the Crib Life dolls. The Hailey Hula doll, like all of the other Crib Life dolls has her own unique look and personality. If you haven’t guessed, she likes to practice her Hula moves. Each doll comes with a mini book, keychain and a doll charm with a special code which will allow children to play games online at Criblife.com.
The $14.99 price point is something parents will surely appreciate. The Crib Life dolls are recommended for children 5 and up, so Emma decided to donate to hers to Toys for Tots this year.
