I have to say….we kinda missed out on the Baby Annabell craze….that is until we recently received a Baby Annabell Brother for review.
OHHHHHH NOW I GET IT!
The moment this arrived, my daughter has been absolutely obsessed! She has always loved babies and we had a charity shop acquisition which until recently has been her baby companion but this baby….WOW!…it’s on a totally different level.
They really weren’t kidding on the life like functions front. It almost makes my womb want to cry. For those hoping to finish things at two, or three…be warned….this might make you think otherwise!
Because it’s absolutely true – Baby Annabell’s Brother Doll looks and acts just like a real baby boy complete with realistic baby sound effects and cute little movements.
My daughter is absolutely smitten and has been providing round the clock care which is literally her dream come true.
She couldn’t wait to strip him down, and get that nappy on – which by the way…he can actually wet! – and feed him. He also babbles, gurgles, sucks on his bottle or dummy with real sounds and features realistic mouth movements and my daughter’s absolute favourite part – he cries real tears.
Yes real tears!
The other piece de resistance – other than the cute burps and yawns – is that he falls asleep when he is rocked. Here is my daughter in the process of lovingly rocking him to sleep (excuse the nappies on the floor – hey some things never change lol!)..
Which is utterly adorable.
Although we are not planning on having any more children (although I think my daughter might hope otherwise now!) the way the doll focuses on all the caring and nurturing aspects of being a mummy or daddy makes it ideal for introducing little ones to the idea of a new baby coming along.
What do you think of the latest addition to the Baby Annabell family? Do leave a comment and share.
