I I’ve had this doll since I was born in 1997....and yes, it may look absolutely awful and to some, but it’s a comfort object! and it has been very well loved and withstood (and is still standing - I AINT getting rid of it) the test of time (hey, 21 years is pretty good if you ask me). I decided to buy another just in case at some point they stop being made. They are so soft! there is a review on here saying they are over stuffed and I don’t get that because mine came in just fine! the picture is not misleading at all, in my opinion. I’m 100% happy with it!
I bought two of these for my daughters- it’s the closest I have found to a replica of *my* beloved childhood doll. The picture is very misleading. The facial features on them are not centered, which ends up changing the effect/emotion of their face. They are also pretty underfilled in the arms and legs, and almost over filled in the head.
Don’t judge, dolly is 29 years old and has traveled the world with me! She’s been through a lot, but she’s one strong doll! Lol
This little one exceeded my expectations. The number one reason I bought this one over the other races was because of the smile. So cute! I also bought it since other reviewers said it fit newborn clothes. NB is actually a little loose in the feet area, but otherwise fine and a lot cuter. Newborn hats are a little tight. I went to Goodwill for baby clothes because they are normally in great shape (babies don't wear them for long!) and much cheaper, about $1.99-3.99 for most sleepers, $0.99 for hats, and you just wash them up and you're good to go.
The packaging for this product was ridiculously difficult. If you are giving it to a child for a present, honestly I would take it out of the box (took over 10 minutes) and place it in a new box in blankets or something (more likely the child will like that better anyway, and they can pick baby up right away) to make it easier.
As you can see in my photo (red background), one of baby's thumbs fits --and stays-- in baby's mouth, which is super cute.
I added small "incisions" into the soft back and took out some of the stuffing and added cheap ankle weights into the head (accessible from the soft body) and into the body to make the weight more real. Very easy and it makes baby more fun to hold. Because it is newborn size, it makes it more real to add weight to the head so you have to support it, just like you do a new baby.
Overall, I am very happy with this little baby.
EDIT: I found a carter's preemie size sleeper and it's a little tight. See second photo with green background.
Just before my child turned four a year ago, she said she wanted a baby doll to be her "little sister". I started browsing and looked for a while before I found her! This doll is cute enough to literally take on a life of her own - my 4 year old takes her with us to the grocherie store and while in the cart (or being carried akwardly by small arms) we get double and triple looks from people, especially if leave her in cart when walk a few steps away from the cart. Some have even asked to take a photo of the doll to show someone at home (my daughter is a little possessive of her though). We have made sure to put a blanket over her (doll) when she's left in the backseat of the car so we don't have to worry about someone thinking she's unsupervised and in need of rescuing on a hot day.
We've had her for almost a year now with almost daily use (she's "baby sister" after all) and the only "injury" she's sustained was when my daughter threw the doll up into the air and she scuffed her head against the door frame (ouch!). Body torso has developed a few fuzzy pills from washing occasionlly in a pillow case but nothing to complain about.
She was great at motaviting/ bribing my daughter to take the yucky medicine when she had a bad ear infection (baby sister was holding the treat out and "talking")
This doll is a great price, has a fabric "body" that is stuffed with something like batting. Has harder (not super hard) plastic head, feet & hands. She is about 20" long and about the width of a typical 3 to 6ish month old. Am pretty sure her crib shoes are the size for a 6month old (but the leg is rather wide where it attaches at an odd angle to her very short but wide feet) so shoes that will have elastic at the top of the shoe or some kind of flexible closure is more ideal. My daughter has put her into some of the Build A Bear clothing items but honestly her head doesn't fit well through them and she's a much better fit for the baby clothing in size 6mo up through 9mo (large 3mo items and up to 12 month clothing if has been washed a lot and has shrinkage; best pant size is 3mo or 6 mo items). Baby clothing is far more ideal for fit and will be far cheaper (especially if you go to a thrift store or can use "hand-me-downs". She barely fits in the cheap metal framed umbrella style doll stroller. Not sure how she'd fit in the Melissa and Doug Shopping Cart. This doll definitely bulkier than a regular sized American Girl Doll (will not fit in that doll bike seat attachment & have not identified if there's a baby carrier that she'll fit into - looked too big for the doll carrier that is styled after the Urgo/Baby Bjorn baby carriers (haven't tried though; only saw carrier that belong to a friend of my child). One of the pics shows a stroller she fits very well into - was a larger (& more expensive) 3 in 1 doll stroller.
I think she had a bit of a "baby" doll smell in the beginning, but nothing unreasonable (we are ones to notice chemically smells).
Am including some photos to show her size. The clothing and plastic bottle and pacifier that she came with still exist and have held up but have not gotten nearly as much use as the doll herself.
Definitely recommend her if you're wanting a baby doll that is life size without spending a fortune. (FYI: Afterwards I did notice some of our local drug stores have slightly smaller sized dolls that are about this price or slightly lower & might fit a bit better in the metal doll umbrella style stroller and you can see in person the size which was the toughest part of buying this one). Am glad I got her & my daughter adores her - definitely the easiest way to provide your child with a little sibling (not the quietest though).
The size of this doll is great! I ordered two for a 2yo who became big sister to a set of twins. She loves them. I turned one into girl by pushing small stud earrings into the ears. I got Newborn diapers and clothes from the sale rack at the local discount store.
I was looking for a baby doll that would fit newborn regular baby clothes so my daughter could practice and learn how to do snaps, zippers, and buttons and this doll fit the match. I ordered 2 of these i was hoping they would be the same doll but as description said they could vary and they did. I was hoping for the same doll so when family members come over with younger daughters they wouldn't fight over this or that doll they would both look alike but it's ok they are both VERY cute and Im just happy i finally found a big doll that fit real clothes since baby doll clothes is so expensive and cheaply made and are only velcro so she really can't learn from velcro. I am trying to figure out how to post pictures to the article of the two i got so you could see the difference i got one just like the picture and the other has blue eyes with the mouth a little more puckered but open with two teeth still...and the outfit was pink instead of orange (but still both had the lady bug). Can't wait for my daughter to start learning while she is playing and i know she will love it to that she can go shopping for baby clothes for her doll for special occasions like her birthday. FYI thrift stores, yard sales and good wills are great for getting newborn clothes for dirt cheap since it is just for a doll baby, also can you use your own kids old clothes also. Oh and these dolls make it easy to turn them into a boy or girl which ever you or your child prefers since there is no hair or anything to make it only a girl which a lot of people love that when they see the doll. By the way my daughter is 2
Though the doll was bigger than I envisioned, my 2 yr old LOVES hauling around this doll... and it's shockingly similar in size to her baby brother. I've included a pic for comparison: my son is 3 months old in the 95th percentile wearing size 6 month clothes, doll is wearing NB clothes.
Super cute doll. Extremely life like (at first it's even a little creepy...) My 5 year old loves it. She dresses it in newborn clothes and they fit great. This doll is also very huggable and makes it a great doll for little ones to nurture, as opposed to the hard plastic dolls that ar uncomfortable to hug and hold. I would also like to mention that it is a good sized doll, but lightweight. All in all this is a wonderful doll especially given the price.
This doll is a great size for my 2.5 year old who wanted a “big baby”... it’s about the size of a 6 month old. (As seen in photos.) It is great for pretend play and will fit her sisters old clothes... also REAL pacifiers and diapers. Quality is ok. It’s head is a bit large but she doesn’t seem to notice.
Cute baby doll, fits in newborn clothes. Kind of a large head. I'm annoyed that it wasn't made to go in short sleeved anything. Nuk pacifiers and our dolls thumb stay in its mouth just fine. Newborn diapers don't work well, size 1 or even 2 might be better. Freaked everyone out Christmas morning with it being so life size. My almost two year old loves her to pieces.
Adorable baby. Not gender specific, so it can be dressed as a boy/girl. Chubby, and true to size so it fits perfectly into real newborn size baby clothing & 6 month hats. Realistic looking, without being creepy. Lightweight. Nice tanned colour, could pass as Hispanic, Native, biracial, or black. I'm VERY pleased, and my daughter was ecstatic on Christmas morning.
Cute, sturdy baby doll. Body and half of each arm and leg is stuffed material. Hair is plastic. Wish it had a little weight to it, but it is still cute and I think my 2yo will love it. This baby is an upgrade from the 12 inch one she got last year. The picture shows the doll wearing a newborn diaper (not shown), newborn sleep outfit, and newborn hat. The diapers are a tiny bit too small, but they fit well since the body is cloth and can get smooshed. The sleeper is a bit too big, but I saw in another review that a preemie outfit is skin tight. The hat is meant to have a folded brim, but it needed to be unfolded to have any chance of fitting. 0-3 month would fit much better I think, but I don't want to go to the trouble of returning it.
[[VIDEOID:d64c661afab08cbadd77fa3d636357a7]] My daughter just flips the pages over and over. There's nothing really interesting about this toy, it just reads out the nursery rhymes. And there's one rhyme on each side of a page, so you always have to listen to the first rhyme to hear the second rhyme. Not a fan of the buttons either
When I purchased this storybook, my grand baby was only 6 months old, so she couldn't open the pages yet but liked to push down on the buttons or maybe I should say "slap them". She liked listening to the voice and talked back to it.
Update: Baby is now a 1-year old toddler and this is now one of her favorite toys. She can now turn the pages and listen to all the songs (although she keeps flipping through and so gets short clips of each). I found out that there is a volume control and we have it on medium and we are all happy. She plays with this every time she comes over and hasn't gotten tired of it yet. She bops to the songs and obviously enjoys it immensely.
Colorful pictures and frame
Fun short songs for baby
Some counting and shapes and words
Visual clues to the words
Easy to carry
Can be turned off to save batteries (or nerves) and volume is adjustable from medium to maximum
Hard plastic might injure baby if she "swings" it around and may hit herself so not for very little babies who are not very coordinated
DO NOT BUY THIS THING!! My 8 month old was flipping through the plastic pages of this book and found his finger pinched between the pages. What ever genious designed this toy negated that it would not often be adult hands turning the pages on this toy and allowed just enough space for infant fingers to become stuck and thus hurt my son. This is clearly not well thought out.
Bought this item as a gift for my granddaughter and had it shipped to her because she is 8 hours away from me. Very disappointed to get these pictures of a book that some pages are in English and other pages are in another language. Pictures and details show it is supposed to be all in English. Not happy at all!!!
I was a little disappointed when I opened the box because of how tiny they were BUT they made up for it on how they make the glug glug sound as if it was being drank. I saw some today at WM that were not nearly as nice as these ones. The design on them are a bit outdated, but otherwise pretty great! My son is going to love feeding his baby's with these.
Purchased about a month ago, everything seemed fine. Never really noticed an active leak, but obviously now both bottles have gone down by about 1/4. I mean, I wasn't expecting amazing quality, but still extremely disappointed.
Kid loves it. After 5 months and of tons of use, it still has the liquid in it. Liquid "disappears" when you turn it upside down so the baby "drinks it". The liquid comes back as soon as you turn the bottle right side up.
These are unbelievable. Do not buy If only I could give a zero ....this is very small ink pen beside it. When I saw it I had a good laugh. Ridiculous
The bottle of juice came empty. I'm giving two stars only because my daughter loves to play with it.
The Milk Bottle arrived LEAKING and no returns.
Received this set as a gift. I disliked the obnoxious pattern that covers both bottles, so I wiggled a knife under the edges and then peeled them off and scrubbed the bottles and now they look just like the ones I had as a child!
I got this for my niece’s 1st bday. It’s very cute, but very small. I think it will be a perfect doll for a 1 year old.
This doll is so small. I also didnt expect it to come in a plastic bag and was hoping for more of a traditional cabbage patch doll box. It's cute and it smells good but not what I was expecting at all. I would return it but am not paying 5.99 to send it back.
As you can see.. my 12 month old loves this doll!! It was a gift for her 1st Birthday!! It’s so cute!! A great first baby doll!! It’s soft and comes with a blanket to wrap the doll! It’s a wonderful first baby doll!
My Mother wanted to purchase a doll for my daughter that would feel good against her skin, that didn't have a hard face or features. This was the only doll out there that fit the bill. It's perfect.
This doll is my daughter’s everything. She goes with us everywhere. If you want to find your child a great doll that is easy to wash and easy to love, look no further. This doll is being loved to bits.
They aren't kidding! We are buying two more as backups!
My Mother in law bought this for my daughter, when she was born and now she will not sleep without it!
I don't know the washing instructions, but we have put ours through the washer a couple of times. We try not to take it anywhere that would get it too dirty...
This Aunt could not be happier that "Emmy" is my niece's favorite toy! :) 6 months gone by, Emmy can never be left behind, been washed a few times, still so soft. Love this. Huge hit!
Looks a rather simple doll. Not a lot here, but It is well made. I actually thought I should have made one instead of waiting for it to arrive. And then reality hit me & I realized I’m not that kind of grandmother. I’m more of the get full of flour, baking with granddaughters kind. Then my 14 month old granddaughter opened it, hugged it, & didn’t let go of Alice (we named her Alice). And I realized, I’m exactly the right kind of grandmother. My instincts said she’d be lovely, & she is. And granddaughter loves her, instinctively.
Love this doll. So soft and so cute!
My 2 year old great niece seemed to like it a lot.
My daughter received this adorable doll (and a somewhat matching outfit!!) as a gift when she was born. When she was 4 months old, she started playing with and loving this doll. She tries to eat her shoes and her pigtails, and loves to snuggle her! I have a feeling this doll will be in our lives for a long time. I'm buying a couple more to have on hand in case this one falls apart or to give as gifts.
10/25/15 - my daughter is now 13 months old and she still loves this doll. We call her "Dolly" and she's always with her in the car and at daycare. I've washed her in the washer and dried her in the dryer numerous times and she's held up very well. So darn cute!
The toy is really cute but... In general, I wouldn’t say it looked shabby. However, it arrived damaged. There was one lose stitch next to the head. I was extremely disappointed and had no time to return the item before Christmas. I ordered it last minute. So to save the situation, I put a pink bow on the doll’s neck.
My friend’s daughter liked the doll a lot, but I assume this particular toy will be all broken after one day of playing with it. I hope my friend and her little daughter will not judge me for a poor quality toy I gave as a gift.
Perfect for little hands to hold, squish, and pat. The rattle is a cute feature, if you don't mind the noise for tiny ones. For us, it's quiet enough that even if we take it to church or places where kids' noise is very noticeable, it's not too big of a deal. She is squishy, soft, and has a sweet face. Definitely a favorite at our house.
My 1 year old grand-niece went crazy over this cute dolly. I put her on a super-cute tower of gifts.
This doll is So cute and well made! My daughter loves her. She likes to press the chest to make the doll laugh.
It was in plastic but still came dirty and gross
es un poco pequeña...su cabeza muy grande respecto al cuerpo
No small parts that become detached, great safe gift! It's great for humans as well....:-)
We had stache and tutu party and this was a cute table decor that OFCOURSE ended up being loved by a 2 yr old later :)
This was suppose to be like the picture my daughters birthday doll came with a chevron design :( I wanted it to match her. Its still cute but I'm disappointed
I purchased this doll (Annette) for my son’s birthday. He adores her. She is very huggable and her skirt is soooo soft! She is also the perfect size for him to carry around. We are both very happy with her.
Muy linda lo que me la esperaba un poquito más grande
Cute, soft & cuddly, lightweight doll.
Very happy with my choice. Fast delivery.
Too cute! This will be babies first doll and I placed it on top of a diaper cake. If hit
This doll is precious. She has a small rattle and she's very soft. Very well made and perfect for an infant or toddler to hold onto.
Bought this as a gift. I had a hard time giving it away as it is so adorable.
My 5 month old babe loved this little doll the minute she laid eyes on it! It’s adorable and feels like it can take some tugs and drool! Her and I are very happy with our purchase!
Exactly like it was pictured, she arrived perfectly !
My granddaughter loves her first doll. It’s very soft and machine washable. A must have
I’m in love!
Doll is really cute but so much smaller than I expected.
Cute but her heard is huge!
I almost feel bad for her. Even my son asked me if she was sick. Loll
This doll is seriously adorable! We have triplet grand babies, 2 girls and a boy who are 7 months old. I wanted dolls for the girls for Christmas that would be safe and well made. These are it! They are so soft and sweet. The body of the dolls are like a velvet material and the skirt is a very soft, minky type material made in sweet, pink rosettes. They are the perfect size for little ones to grasp and hold. We haven't needed to wash ours yet but the sewn on label says they are machine washable and I don't see why not. Attached is a picture of one of our little miracle angles with her dolly today.
I'm a guy, and I have to say the item was an awesome gift. Both my daughters love it. The 4 month year old holds it every day and the 4 year old brings hers along on car trips and randomly plays with it. This surprises me because she likes physical dolls like Barbie, more than stuff dolls. I wanted to switch things up a bit and was not let down. I also got the youngest one the matching blanket. Very soft and cuddly. Absolutely nothing negative to say.
Bought this for my niece. She just turned 1 and didn't have a dolly yet. She loves this thing and I will be buying this one a "friend" for Christmas!
My great niece loves her new Baby Starter Plush Snuggle Buddy Pink Dolly. I sent this to my 1year old great niece, Harper, for her First Birthday. My sister (Harper's Nana) told me that Harper loves her new dolly and always has it with her and sent me this so cute picture of Harper with a pink outfit on holding her pink Baby Starters Dolly.
Love her. She is perfect for my 10 month niece. May need a second for when she is in the washing machine. There are tons of different textures on this doll. My niece loves that. I tried to show the textures in the pictures. Couldn’t be happier.
Super cute for my 6 month old granddaughter - I bought this because of course it is pink and sweet, she has a happy face, and most of all washable!
Very cute doll. Bought it for 1st birthday of my niece and my 4 year old niece quickly snatched it up and ran away.
This doll is well loved by my one year old ???? It’s been washed countless times and has held up great.
Absolutely adorable! So soft and a great size. Can’t wait to give it to my 4 month old granddaughter for Christmas!
My daughter received the sugar and spice doll as a gift. It’s been a hit, and I was surprised at how nice it is. She’s currently six months old, but has been playing with it for a few months. It’s soft all over, and well thought for the details-the fleecy hair, the satin underskirt- I can see why the little ones love it.
