It’s a boy! Prince George and Princess Charlotte aren’t the only ones to be celebrating the arrival of a new baby brother, Baby Annabell has a new baby brother of her own too! We were sent the new brother doll by Zapf Creation* to review here on my blog and of course he was instantly named Louis by my daughter. As you can see, we rolled out the bunting to celebrate! Ha!
The new baby brother is an interactive doll and reacts like a real baby. He gurgles and slurps water from his bottle and even cries to be burped. His mouth makes cute movements as well as the sounds. He makes lovely babbling sounds when you play with him and can even be hushed to sleep. He comes wearing the cute little blue babygro outfit shown and has additional accessories including the feeding bottle, dummy, bib and nappy.
You can feed him water using the special feeding bottle. We have found that the doll takes the water straight away and you can see his mouth sucking away like a real baby and his eyes blink. When when he is finished, you hold him upright over your shoulder and he burps when you pat his back which my daughter thought was hilarious of course!
He has a wetting function too and can use a potty. You just press the love heart symbol on his tummy when you are ready for him to use the potty. The body of the doll is made of a soft but waterproof type material but we made sure he was completely dry before dressing him again.
If he cries, you can soothe him with the dummy or by stroking his cheek. He can be hushed to sleep and he gently sighs before nodding off, it is so sweet! To wake him you put him back in an upright position again. We love all of the giggling and babbling sounds he makes it really is lifelike.
The new Baby Annabell brother doll is available in all good toy shops now priced at £49.99 RRP (Please note that the doll requires 3 x AA batteries to fully operate that are not included) We loved the little accessories that he came with but he is also the same size as our other Baby Annabell dolls which means that he is compatible with all other accessories too which is handy.
The functions including the eye and mouth movements are really life-like as are all the sounds and of course, any doll that uses the potty is always going to be a hit here. What is it with children and weeing?! This new doll gets a huge thumbs up from us, my daughter absolutely loves him and he makes a perfect addition to our ever-expanding Baby Annabell family.
