This baby doll is the perfect size for my two-year old to play with. I was very surprised at how soft the dolls body was. I thought it would be all plastic and not very moveable when I bought it. The face, arms and legs are plastic, but the body is fabric and filled with stuffing and bead pellets. It is nice and squishy for when your child gives the doll a hug.
The clothes on this baby are also removeable so you can change them out for other outfits (not included). The baby has blinking eyes and her mouth is always open. It came with a pacifier that fits into the mouth easily. The hair is soft and the pigtail holders are easily removed to change the baby dolls hairstyle.
I also like the many add-on items that are available for this line of dolls from Melissa and Doug.
Honestly this is like any other doll. There's nothing INSANELY special. I bought it because Melissa and Doug products are good.
Quality: Good quality, the hair is not falling apart with regular use of the doll. My daughter has only brushed it a few times, we have not gotten the hair wet either. The clothes stay intact. The eyes open and shut.
Size: Great size for a toddler. It's soft but not totally plush. The material inside feels like beads. Great size for a child to put in a baby stroller, carry in car seat, to pretend feed etc. I would not recommend sleeping with this doll because it's not totally plush. The hands and feet are plastic.
Con: For some reason kids love taking baths with their dolls (at least some girls do).
This doll is not appropriate for that. Not fully plastic so NOT a bath toy.
Pros: At the same time because its not fully plastic - it's softer than dolls that are.
I happen to like this doll. All dolls are securely packaged I've noticed and this one was no different. When opening just be patient and grab a pair of scissors and you should be fine. My picture shows her size compared to a pair of scissors. Her hair is soft and she sucks her thumb and her pacifier. I plan on waiting a few months to give this to my daughter for her second birthday. I also feel good about this doll because it's made by Melissa and Doug
She's pretty cute, looks much better in the pictures though for sure, my daughter loves her because she looks realistic, unlike her baby alive, a couple minor things wrong, like her pants don't stay on at all, there's not enough stuffing in her like you'll see in the picture, the top of her legs are completely without stuffing, it's like they filled her up halfway there's also paint missing from her lips, the hair quality is not as good as expected but I rubber banded the pony tails so that should keep
it intact for a while, my daughter doesn't notice these things as she is only 2 1/2 she still loves her and that's what's important, still the 3 stars is because of the issues and I honestly expected better quality from mellisa and Doug doll
I feel like I was mislead on the description. The doll wasn’t what I was expecting. She’s not friendly looking but kinda scary in my opinion. She looks way better in the picture than what came in the box. It’s hard to explain exactly but I just felt like it wasn’t the same doll even though it is. Her hair on one side was messy, almost kinked or curled but the other side was completely straight. It was supposed to be a Christmas present but it’s not a doll I care to gift. If I had seen it in a store I would never have bought it.
Purchased for a 5-year old granddaughter who wanted “a doll with a binky.” Beautiful head of auburn hair in pigtails. Eyes open and close. Soft body with soft plastic arms and legs - includes a binky! ❤️
We received the ‘dolly’ yesterday. She is very cute with beautiful brown eyes.
I thought she was perfect at first but after several months of being carried everywhere her hair became an awful frizzy mess and will not de tangle. I have tried lots of things. The clothes also ball up after a wash. However, my 1 year old loves her and takes her everywhere.
My daughter favorite toy ????????????????
These shoes are very cute, but are tight on my 4yo feet. She has wider feet so real shoes can be challenging too. One pair fits jut fine because each one has a different style toe. She likes them a lot so she's going to try to get used to them and stretch them a little :). She is currently wearing between a sz 10-11.
We are obsessed with play shoes! These are great quality compared to others we have gotten in the past. Very recommended and my 2 year old likes to wear them out of the house- although they are big on her I'm glad she will have them for a long time and can grow into them. This set comes with 4 pairs but we have a collection of about 10 dress up shoes that she loves.
***At her current shoe size 5.5 the blue fabric slippers are too big but they do grip the hard floor well. The plastic ones have the best gripping I've seen for play shoes so I am very pleased with my purchase.
Bought these based on quality of M&D Products. These don’t meet their quality. Two pairs of shoes were deformed plastic on top that were misshaped making it very uncomfortable for my daughter to wear. She just turned 4. I did contact M&D and they had amazing customer service and sent out a new set. While the replacement was a bit better, they still weren’t perfect. I wouldn’t recommend and while it says ages 3-5, my daughters foot that she’s 9.5 right now won’t be able to wear long. If your kid had more petite foot and smaller size, then this could work ok.
Compared to be Disney ones these are more sturdy and less expensive. The accessories on the shoes are flimsy so they won’t last long but the shoe itself has grip which is nice considering my daughter likes to wear them out and about.
My daughter is 3 and she’s a 9/10 in regular shoes so these won’t last too long but she has skinny feet and bigger than average for a 3 year old.
My daughter seems to slip less in these than other plastic dress up shoes. She’s a toddler size 7.5 maybe and has plenty of room to grow into these by can still walk well. Our neighbor is toddler size 10 and these fit her perfectly. (Photo is of a size 10 foot on a 5 year old)
I’m sharing this shortly after unboxing the package and I can’t believe that a shoe is missing. I read reviews of that happening with cheaper brands and that’s why I specifically ordered Melissa and Doug shoes. You can see in the picture how the side looks like it has been opened and a shoe has been removed. It’s fishy to me that this apparently happens with every brand. Is it really an accident happening so often?!! This is not a brand issue it’s a processing/shipping issue. Given the amount of reviews, Amazon must be aware of this so why does it keep happening? I don’t know if I have time to return these since my daughter’s party is soon and it’s a headache anyway. Buyer just beware. So disappointed.
My 2yo daughter loves these shoes. They're big for her yet, but she still tries to walk around the house in them. She hardly can walk in them, so most of her time is spent putting them back on. She doesn't mind in the least. What she doesn't like is how the jewels fall off SOOO EASY. I don't like it either. I am continuously putting them back on for her. For as little wear and tear they've gotten, it sure is a bummer they are falling apart already.
Super annoyed. My daughter got these for Christmas. These came with 2 left shoes. And the bow has already came off. Really disappointing considering these were something my 3 year old daughter begged for.
Photos for reference - she is 2 and wears a size 7 shoe normally. These are harder to walk because of the larger size but does not stop her! The only ones she has not worn yet are the blue ones.
These are so cute. My twins love them. They're three and the shoes are a little big, but my girls are a little small and still wearing 24month/2T clothes. They both love putting the hard shoes on and stomping around the house. The heels aren't too high and the bottoms aren't too slick, so we haven't had any accidents, which is always a positive! Great addition to any dress up set!
Perfect Will Buy Again
We were a little disappointed with the doll due to the discrepancy in how it's advertised and what the instructions state. My 3 year old daughter loves mermaids, and she loves bath time so this looked liked the ideal toy to combine those two things.
First the positives: The doll itself is cute and in my experience kids love any activity involving water, so the fact that this Baby Alive drinks and wets her diaper definitely adds some major entertainment value. Also the mermaid skirt that makes the doll look like a mermaid while it still have legs is pretty great too. My daughter loves that she's "just like Ariel!". Overall just the concept of this doll is fantastic, especially right now when all the little girls are so into mermaids.
What i didn't like: This Baby Alive is specifically advertised for "in and out of water". The package even shows a girl putting the doll in water with the caption "Play in Water!", and another picture on the packaging states "Waterplay fun!". So that makes me think it's going to be the perfect bathtub toy that I've been looking for. So I'm curious as to why the instructions state, "Not intended for bathtub play."? Maybe it's just a sentence that is on all the Baby Alive instructions and it wasn't excluded for this particular doll model? Either way, we decided that we'd let my daughter use it for her bathtub toy anyways and she's been having a blast. I just make sure that I lay the baby on a doll after she's done with her and try to drain all the water out. And believe me, this doll fills to the brim with water!
So other than the issue with the instructions not jiving with the adverstisement, this is a pretty entertaining doll that your mermaid lover is sure to enjoy.
This baby alive doll is amazing. She comes with her mermaid outfit on but you simply undo the back and it slips off to reveal her legs. She has a diaper and bottle that she comes with as well. My daughter had me doing the diaper, then the mermaid tail, then the diaper, and well you get the idea. She loves her.
Details are great on her. Love that she can go in the water and out. That is wonderful as they always want to bring there babies in the tub. I gave this five stars but I would have given more. This is a wonderful gift. I know my girls are baby crazy and they are only 3 and 4. I am sure it will be years before they are out of the baby doll stage.
My little girl loves baby dolls! Baby Alive is her favorite because she loves being able to take care of her baby like a real "mommy" does. This doll can drink it's bottle, wet it's diaper, and go swimming in the water. My 4 year old takes her baby in the bath tub and plays with her. It comes with doll's shirt, mermaid tail bottoms, baby bottle and a diaper. This makes a great gift for any little girl, super cute, nice quality baby doll.
Super cute mermaid style doll with all of the fun Baby Alive interaction. Basically you can buy clothes and accessories from the Baby Alive line for this doll. It doesn't have real doll hair, but honestly I like that cause my 5yo makes such a mess of doll hair. She's been toting this cutie around for two weeks and we ended up buying more "diapers". So be prepared for that cash outflow.
Vibrant outfit, easily poseable and perfect size for little hands.
I'm glad I got this item on sale because I would have been furious if I had payed full price.
I was off put at first because the teacher and student boards are actually just part of the box. That would be totally fine, and is actually a great concept, but it's just a cardboard box, which will not hold up for long. If it was plastic or something I would have no complaints about that aspect.
Next we've only had this product about a week and used it a total of 4 times and the cards are stained beyond use and the printed on lines/numbers are coming off. We have followed care instructions and used the provided pens so there really shouldn't be an issue.
Overall the set seemed kind of chinzy but I was okay with it because it is quite neat, however the quality just isn't there and definitely is not anywhere on par with the Melissa & Doug standard.
Save yourself the money and buy a classroom circle time set for less.
What I like:
-variety of jewelry
-top for four princesses with appropriate crowns/head-pieces
-decent variety of items for the price
What could be improved:
-not the best quality of material.
-only one of the tops (Belle's) has some stretch to it, all the others have no give.
-tops seem pretty small
-only 3 skirts, if four children, either Snow White or Belle gets the yellow skirt.
-nice variety and kids of all sizes could wear parts (such as the head pieces) which is fun. Okay quality, not thrilled with this but will probably use it from time to time.
I bought it for a 2 year old, it was a little loose but she wasn't drowning in it and has some room to grow. It's true the fabric isn't the most durable or fantastic but for the price and purpose I think they're great. She was happy and I'm happy with the purchase.
I’m more than upset about this! The box came in unrepairable shambles! It’s crooked and and the latch is half ripped off and the bottom looks like someone took a knife to it!!! ????And the clothes are cheap! This is horrible for the price! I’m really upset about this!
Well, I do not think they could find a cheaper quality fabric if they tried to.....they are cute but man they are poorly made and the seams are not meant to withstand even the normal movement of a child. If your child does not sit, bend, or move when they play then these are great. The seams on the 2 skirts she played in ONE TIME are coming apart. Really wish these were better quality.
The girls love the variety, and I thought how cute to get all these little outfits before leaving for Disneyland so they can dress-up and take pictures with their favorite princesses. Unfortunately the outfits won't be making it to Disneyland with us it was a waste of money. Every outfit skirt ripped in half . They weren't to small for them they were actually two big but we were only going to put them over their clothes for princess pictures anyways then use them at home for play dress-up.
The material freyed apart at the seam on them after twenty minutes tops. I don't recommend this item it's not a good buy for your girls they will be very disappointed.
Also my girls had on bike shorts with them, nothing to snag the material just a cheap material and no way to hold the thread to the material.
THESE OUTFITS ARE SO ADORABLE! Sure they aren't the "best" quality, but my niece doesn't need something super fancy just to play in. This was a PERFECT birthday gift for her! She loves them and so do I!
A little big on my about to be 3 year old but she still loves all the outfits. They are all skirts with separate tops.
Box arrived damaged. Granted, it is a cheap cardboard trunk-style box, but it looks tampered with. I bought this to give as a Salvation Army Christmas gift to a child in need, and the box looks unpresentable :( I did carefully open the box to check that the content was there, and it looks like it is.
My daughter is going through a princess phase so we decided this would be a good Christmas gift. She has a good time dressing up with them. I am giving 3 stars because one of the earings were missing when I opened it. She doesn’t care much for the accessories yet so I didn’t feel the need to return for that one piece. The clothes are very thin and the tops seems cheaply made. Good to play around the house but I wouldn’t use them as a full blown costume for a party or Halloween. My daughter wears 3t and they fit her okay. I’m sure she will be able to still fit in them for a while longer.
The kit itself is what was expected. It comes all crammed in one bag so if you are gifting you may want to open and refill everything. I ironed the crown and choker because it came wrinkled, but that fixed them right up.
I bought it for a gift and I was expecting the packaging in the video. It came looking cheap. The product still looks okay inside the plastic bag but I didn’t open it any further to check out the quality. I wouldn’t recommend buying for a gift, looks like I shopped at a dollar shop.
Bought this for my niece's third birthday! She was thrilled!
—Feel free to ask me any questions about my review!—
My niece is 2 and is really into accessories. The only reason for 4 stars is because it’s really small. I understand she’s two but I’m just hoping the products inside aren’t so small they’re choking hazzards.
I hope my description was of use to you!

Such a cute little play purse set! My 2 yr old loves it. All of the accessories fit inside of the purse. The compact mirror and coin pouch both open. The only small piece is the lipstick so be careful with that. Overall great set! Would definitely recommend!
When my daughter was opening the bag, her hands turned black. When I looked at the bag there was something black on the outside and inside of the bag. And the black things were inside the lining as well that even after washing, it would not come out.
Cute, just watch the choking hazard of the lipstick top! Otherwise cute gift.
as you look at the photo
Everything that was on the picture was in the box. I was worried because the box showed up very beat up (as you can tell in the pictures) however nothing was broken or messed up due to the box. I would buy this again, it came exactly when it said it would.
[[VIDEOID:f29a2ac35e4519799401dbe6f1d48de4]] Bought this for my 18 month old granddaughter who loves to get into my purse for my keys and phone. The little butterfly sunglasses were adorable. She LOVED THE PURSE and all the accessories!
Love this great quality and adorable
So cute and perfect for my one year old :)
My step daughter loves this ! She takes it everywhere with her .
My little one just loves this! It has “her size” versions of everything mommy has.
Coin purse was broken when received, and does not close....but the other items worked fine. Overall I would purchase again, but only at a lower price. Would purchase for a max of $8 due to quality. Other than that, it is a cute set.
Such a great hit for my 2 year old niece. She loved it. Great buy. Great quality for the price!
I was a little bit skeptical on this purchase after reviewing the 1-2 star reviews & since my granddaughter 21 months old has been using one of my purse's with a set of old car keys, old cellphone, etc...
This is BY FAR one of the BEST purchases I have made!! Its absolutely adorable and my grand daughter loves it!!! the purse is perfect in size and made with excellent quality- sure the items that come with the bag are made of plastic and the cell phone doesn't work (no ringing, cant push in the buttons etc.) but she doesnt care. She still pretends she is making a call, receives calls, etc. she pretends with her lipstick and Grandma (myself) likes to pretend that my grand daughter is paying for our day of shopping with her debit card.
My grand daughter must have her purse when leaving the house. its perfect for her to slip on her arm.
Got this for a 1 year old for Christmas. She's always going in my purse and mimicking everything I do so I thought this would be perfect. She plays with it about equally as much as all the rest of her toys. Would be better if the phone made noise, but overall I was pleased with this.
My 18m old just loves this little set. The handbag is easy enough for her to open but sturdy enough that it doesn't open when she drops it. The handbag itself has a protective coating on it that makes it easy to wipe down & I love that the handles are soft where she holds
it. She loves to put things in and out of it like her little toys and trinkets.
Everything in this set is adorable and your little one will love it.
Just like the pictures. I got it for my niece, she loves to take a any old plastic bag when we leave, because she sees me taking my purse. It’s cute. The only thing i did not like was that the purple wallet does not open.
I LOVE this toy! My daughter kept stealing my bags (or even grocery bags) and I was tired of stealing my car keys and wallet back! I got this purse not realizing it came with all of the adorable toys inside. Granted, they lean a little on the "typical girl" side, ie, lipstick, a compact, credit cards. But all that aside my actual CHILD loves it to pieces. She carries it everywhere and fills it with all of her toys and babydolls. A+!
My 18 month goes everywhere with hers! Loved to put on her "lipstick" and look pretty.
My granddaughter loved this little bag. The phone and credit card were a big hit too! For me, her excitement in getting this purse was well worth the money.
Purchased this for my 1 year old Granddaughter and she absolutely loved it! Especially the lipstick! It's also very light to carry. Note, it does not come with the brush, but plenty of room for a small doll brush. So cute!
Great product. My granddaughter loves it.
My 1 year old started to want to play with my purse all the time. I decided to get her her very own purse and this one had great reviews. I was not sure if she would like it since it does not have zippers or pockets like mommy's purse, but she loves it. She carries it around with her and plays with all the cool stuff inside.
Found dead bugs plastered in between the cup moulding. Check everything before giving it to your child.
Much nicer than the Fisher Price one. I couldn't be more pleased. Adding a picture of my granddaughter enjoying it at only 5 months old. You can't see the basket in this Christmas morning photo, but you can see some of the pieces and how she is enjoying it with her brother looking on.
I got this for my 2 year old for Christmas. I bought it here on Amazon and got it for a great deal. It's really a cute toy. There are 2 plates, 2 cups, 2 big forks and 6 shapes of food (3 for each plate). The picnic basket sings little songs and will teach them shapes. I don't understand why my daughter hardly ever plays with it though. Maybe she's too young for it. But I really don't have any complaints. It's a well constructed, safe toy.
I was going to order the fisher price picnic basket for my baby back at Christmas time even though I had not seen it in person but this one ended up going on sale so I purchased it instead. I'm glad I did now that I've seen the other one in person. This one is large and has much more going on. She loves pulling out all the stuff and chewing on the foods (she's only 9 months). I can see her using this in the future since the basket is bigger and maybe having some educational value then. I have caught her putting the pieces in the right spots on the plate already though (circle, triangle, square).
So adorable my niece will love it, It has all the 14-pieces shown, helps children build motor skills and its so cute for them to learn the shapes and colors and play Picnic all at the same time. Keeps my nieces highly entertained. LeapFrog as the most educational and Fun toys for kids.
My baby loves this. Pieces are perfect for her little hands. She loves taking the objects out of the basket. We’ve had it about a week.
my daughter loves to play with this basket and is really cute.
my daughter is 1 and she loves playing with this picnic set. It has high quality and looks super cute!!!
This tutu is the perfect tutu. My daughter looooved it! She turned 3 today and i surprised her with it and she went bonkers. Ok it has an elastic waistband. You tigh the bow in the tutu yourself but the hair clip is already a bow and secure aka my daughter didnt destroy it in minutes. The colors are all seperate so its super easy to run and play in it too. Such an awesome tutu.
Love it!! Purchased 2 of these size S for my granddaughters who are both slim/ petit and it fits them beautifully
Great quality and as described. The fabric is soft and it is colorful! It is comfortable to wear. It's nice that it came with a bow to match the skirt. Good for little ballerinas. My daughter loves wearing it!
We got it a few hours earlier than I expected and we were so excited to try it on! It is well made and adorable. Keep in mind it is shorter than it appears in the picture, same length as a mini skirt, but my daughter loves it! There's going to be a lot of fairy princess play time happening in the near future!
Cute tutu. Just FYI- tool is not connected. It’s not a solid layer all the way around, but rather pieces of tool next to each other if that makes sense. Stitching is a bit rough, but it’ll serve its purpose for one day and then probably end up as a costume around the house. For the price, you can’t complain. The bow is cute though, and seems a bit better quality. Perfect for play, or something that you only need once.
Bright, vibrant colors. My 5 year old love it! The size L 4-8 fit her perfectly.
I should’ve looked through the pictures from previous purchases because it’s not as thick as I thought. It’s also separated into segments instead of a whole piece, so you’ll definitely need shorts or leggings underneath. The colors are very bright and pretty but my girls have big bellies and they’re kinda tight.
This tu tu surprised me it was even prettier than I expected. My daughter loved it she wore it for her birthday party we washed it and everything is still good.
Arrived flat as a pancake and took a lot of work to restore it. A lot!
It's super thin, but at this price I expected that.
She was adorable and still plays with it.
Beautiful and fits perfectly
