Interactive Baby Annabell and Comfort Seat
Emily can’t get enough of baby dolls. I watch her caring for her babies and think about what a great big sister she would be. She loves feeding them with a bottle, swaddling them and pushing them around in pushchairs. Around her birthday, she received an interactive Baby Annabell and comfort seat.
Baby Annabell comes with a really soft romper suit, hat, bib, bottle, dummy and a necklace with amulet (I’m a little confused as to why she needs a necklace!). She is a lovely looking baby doll, perfect size and weight for toddlers and very cuddly. You can also get some gorgeous clothes to dress them in, however, all of Emily’s babies end up naked, so I have never seen the point of buying baby clothes for any of her babies!
Baby Annabell is much more like a real baby than any other baby that Emily has owned. Baby Annabell cries real tears from the water tank fitted inside her, which is filled up with water when she is fed with the bottle. To soothe her, you can stroke her cheek, give her her bottle or her dummy. As I can see that Emily loves baby Annabell a lot, I thought about getting her some extra accessories to go with it. I was recommended by a friend of mine to look into Silver Cross dolls prams from Play Like Mum if I wanted to help develop my child’s imagination. It isn’t just a doll for kids. For parents, it is a tool that is used to help their children with their development and encourage the skills that your child will need later on in life.
When she is happy she babbles and laughs and may even do a little burp. She will even close her eyes and go to sleep. Emily was very wary about having the batteries put into her Baby Annabell. When I asked her if she wanted to hear Baby Annabell cry, she looked at me like I was some sort of monster – why on earth would I want to make her baby cry? She did eventually relent, and loved hearing her Baby Annabell babbling and was so sweet soothing her when she cried.
The comfort seat enables you to strap Baby Annabell in and carry her around using the Z-shaped handle. You can also easily push back the handle to turn this into a seat. The shape of the handle makes it much easier for young children to carry around. The girls love having a carry seat for the baby as they think it is just like the one their cousin Finn arrives in when he comes to visit. It kind of is, but Baby Annabell’s comfort seat is a lot pinker! Emily, only just 3 years old, finds it a bit too heavy to carry around, but Freyja has no problem doing this.
