Littlest has always loved more traditional toys like stuffed animals and dolls. She can often be found dressing them, caring for them and setting them up for pretend play like tea parties and staging plays. I knew that she would love an interactive doll such as Baby Born. When Baby Born contacted us to ask us to review a doll and a new Baby Born Wash Basin, I was excited to see what she thought.
If you would like to see how Littlest got on with using some of the features of the doll and wash basin, you can check out our video below.
One reader can also win both a Baby Born doll and the Interactive Wash Basin for their little one. Just scroll to the Rafflecopter at the end of the post to enter.
Our Baby Born Video Review
Baby Born Doll
Baby Born has lots of lifelike functions which all work without a battery: crying, sleeping, drinking from her bottle, using the potty to name but a few. She also comes with over ten accessories including a dummy, dummy clip, potty, bottle and feeding spoon and plate. Also included are a heart necklace and bracelet. I thought was a little odd as they would be a choking hazard for a real baby! Littlest loved the fact that she came with so much as it allowed her to role-play all kinds of activities with her baby.
Many of the doll’s functions involve water (crying, wetting nappy and washing with the basin). My one note of caution would be to prepare for things to get wet when playing with them!
However, Littlest was perfectly happy to play with the doll and basin without using the water. There is no need to get things wet every time you play. She loved the fact that Baby Born’s eyes close when you put her down to sleep.
Baby Born Interactive Wash Basin
LIke the doll, the Interactive wash basin has great functions – it comes with a real water tap and light up interactive basin for Baby Born to use in the morning and before bed.
Whether you are using the flashing mirror or using the duck as the basin plug whilst washing, the basin provides you and your doll with lots of wash-time fun. The basin includes a soft towel to pat down and dry the face of your doll. When the cup is removed, the basin plays gargle and tooth cleaning sounds. It’s great functions include:
- Light up mirror
- Towel holder and towel
- Special duck plug
- Washing sounds
- Real water tap
Using the real tap was a big hit with Littlest but, again, it does mean that things can get a little messy!
