Little Button loves playing with dolls. Just like I did when I was little. Over time, her games have evolved to become much more complex with problem solving being at the heart of everything. This means her dolls capabilities get stretched to the max and she tends to sway towards ones with that little bit ‘extra’ interaction. BABY born is already a big hit with Little Button for exactly this reason, but we hadn’t realised that she has an interactive big sister until now!
BABY born Sister doll review
BABY born Sister from Zapf creation is a perfect addition to add to the family. Being a couple of years older than BABY born, she’s a great way to enhance role play with your little ones existing doll collection.
What is she like?
She’s a substantial size, weighty and very well made. She feels the same as BABY born to touch and shares that wide eyed, plump cheeked look – which we love.
She comes fully dressed in jeans and a stylish top. Which instantly makes her look older than her baby sister.
What does she come with?
Like BABY born, the BABY born Sister comes with fun accessories. Included in the box is:
- 1 pair of shoes
- 1 water bottle
- 1 hair brush
- 2 hair scrunchies
- 3 pretty hair clips
- 2 friendship bracelets; 1 for the doll and 1 for your little one
Everything is of a good size and I think there’s just enough to keep little ones entertained. My pet hate is when toys come with way too many little accessories, as I always find they end up forgotten at the bottom of a drawer… or half chewed by Alfie our dog!
All about THAT hair
Little Button LOVES this dolls hair. It’s a full head of long blonde hair which feels silky to touch and easy to style up or down. This is great for when I’m brushing Little Buttons hair and I need to give her a distraction while any knots are being brushed out. It’s also a lovely way to introduce ‘practicing’ tying up hair, for when the time comes for them to do their own hair (or at least try to that is).
And she stands too
This BABY born Sister has the lovely quality of being able to stand on her own. I wasn’t sure she was going to, but sure enough, she does! It is quite easy to manage this, as long as she’s being stood on a flat surface. #VeryImpressed. Along with being able to stand, she has super flexible joints on her knees, making her feel life like and posable.
The only thing I would say is that if her legs are exposed, so are the knee joints. Littler ones would need to be aware of this to avoid pinched fingers.
Let’s get to the water bit
I’m going to be really honest here. My heart sinks just a little when I find out a doll drinks water. It’s not that I don’t like water play, it’s just that I don’t like to helicopter around holding a towel and interrupting play when the inevitable happens… the doll somehow leaks vast quantities of the stuff everywhere.
But, I’m thrilled to report that this doll doesn’t do that! Hooraa! The water very easily goes in via a cleverly designed water bottle. And comes out as tears. As it only holds a small(ish) amount, I don’t have to run around mopping up. It’s a win win! BABY born Sister is also able to join your little one in the bath. She can’t be fully submerged though.
Our overall thoughts
BABY born Sister from Zapf creation is a gorgeous doll that would compliment most little ones doll collections. Her life-like interactive elements make her a winner for Little Button, and we love how she’s still very much a doll to cuddle. We’ve already had lots of fun with her over the holidays and I think she’s very much set to be one of Little Buttons favourites.
