My little lady is just growing super fast and although she likes to play with her older brother, she loves to play with her dolls and sometimes have tea party with me.
Last month, I received the Baby Alive Doll from being a BzzAgent and what a wonderful opportunity it is to try it.
While I was trying to open the box, the kids, especially my daughter, were hovering me.
When she finally saw it, she had mixed emotions!
What a special moment to be able to capture her different reactions.
The kids cannot wait to play with it while I was taking it out from the box and figuring out how to use it.
The package came in with a couple of diapers, food packages, spoon and a sippy cup.
Okay here's what the doll is supposed to be - a real baby.
My son immediately mix the food with water so they can feed the BABY ALIVE®, because once the doll's power button was on, it started to request for food.
While my daughter and I helped each other to put on the baby doll's diaper.
My kids just look so cute feeding the doll and I feel so amused about the whole thing.
You can definitely tell from the pictures that my kids are having so much fun!
Then the doll would say, "did i make a stinky" or "Uh-oh! I made a poo-poo", that prompted us all to check the doll's diaper.
That's where all the laughing began! We all thought it was weird and funny to have a doll that actually pee or poop!
And yes she did! So we changed her diaper and by the time we were done, the doll was thirsty.
Then I realized why we were doing this on the carpeted part of the house!
Oh well, the kids had so much fun, especially my daughter!
They pretty much used up all the diapers and all the baby food because the baby doll won't stop asking for it.
My opinion about this whole baby alive?
It was really fun to watch the kids nurture the doll while giggling but for me it was just so messy and so much work to clean up after.
I will not buy anymore food for this doll or diaper as well because cleaning the doll was all on Mommy.
For me, this kind of doll would be very good for bigger kids that knows how to clean up afterwards. Otherwise, I don't recommend it to smaller kids.
• the kids love it and enjoyed it
• the doll was interactive - asks for food or water then tells you to check her diaper
• allows the child to nurture the doll
• expensive to maintain - you have to purchase diapers & food
• the doll's voice is too loud - no control to lower or higher it
• a little messy because the food stays in the mouth instead of going down
Disclosure: As a BzzAgent, I received 1 BABY ALIVE® with 2 diapers, 2 bags of food, spoon & sippy cup to try in order for me to facilitate the review. However, everything that this post contains are my own genuine experience/opinion.
