Niece loves it
I got this Melissa & Doug doll for my niece for her 2 year old birthday. She just loved it and it was really cute and the perfect size for her. It comes with a cute potty that the doll can use after drinking water from the bottle that comes with her. This was great because my niece is starting to potty train, so it will help her out to put her doll on the potty too. The doll also comes with a pacifier and a diaper. She is wearing panties under her cute dress and hat. Her eyes also open and close so she can really take a nap at nap time. I love all things Melissa & Doug and this doll did not disappoint. Annie, her clothes, and accessories all seem very well made and they should last quite awhile, even in the hands of a 2 year old. Just look at that face :D
My oldest daughter got this dolly last Christmas to have for a bathtub doll. We have religiously kept her draining after each bath (max 10 minute baths) by standing her on the bath ledge. By spring she had started to get weird stains around her eyes and we took her out to clean her and let her totally dry out. I cleaned her with a mild enzymatic cleaner (afraid to ruin her with anything strong or abrasive) and a soft bristled roothbrush to get into her eyes.
I mentioned to my mom (who purchased the doll for my oldest and had also recently given one to my youngest which we had NOT put into the bath) and showed her a picture I took of the doll. Needless to say she freaked out and was super upset. This was not an inexpensive doll, she had purchased 2 (one for each of my girls) and was super unhappy that this one had gotten super gross (and disturbing) after normal use.
I just cleaned her eyes again this afternoon and they're not any better (by the way, few things are as disturbing as forcefully brushing a doll baby's eyes.... just saying) and I am going to have to take this doll away from my girls. I'll also be contacting Melissa and Doug about this because let's be honest; they typically make amazing kids stuff so this is not their norm.
The size of the doll is good. The limbs are harder more like vinyl...the head is small. Its not in proportion with the body. The face is adorable. The doll is not an authentic reborn babydoll like you would see in you tube videos. However, those dolls are much more money. The doll is very stuffed which makes it impossible for her head to sit properly. The paint reminds me of the paint you would find on any other doll. This doll cannot pass for an infant. With that being said, she is quite adorable. A child would love her! And i think she would fit in real newborn baby clothes but i havent tried any on her. Again, she really does have a beautiful face. I never intended to take her out on a stroll so she will do fine for me. I am an adult doll lover.
My daughter bought this with her birthday money and she was counting down the hours until it was received. I’ve read so many reviews on reborns with different sellers and was so nervous she was going to be disappointed with the doll. To my surprise the doll was just as described and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase! Thank you for making my daughters day!
My daughter loves the doll. However her eye lashes on one eye are not attached completely and will be all the way off any time now. Any help would be greatly appreciated. She paid for the doll with her own money and I feel it’s not to her satisfaction.
She is adorable!
My little cousin is enjoying her new doll so much it feels and looks like a real baby as long as she's happy I'm happy you got my 5 stars...
It serves as a Baby Jesus for our Christmas Play
This little one exceeded my expectations. The number one reason I bought this one over the other races was because of the smile. So cute! I also bought it since other reviewers said it fit newborn clothes. NB is actually a little loose in the feet area, but otherwise fine and a lot cuter. Newborn hats are a little tight. I went to Goodwill for baby clothes because they are normally in great shape (babies don't wear them for long!) and much cheaper, about $1.99-3.99 for most sleepers, $0.99 for hats, and you just wash them up and you're good to go.
The packaging for this product was ridiculously difficult. If you are giving it to a child for a present, honestly I would take it out of the box (took over 10 minutes) and place it in a new box in blankets or something (more likely the child will like that better anyway, and they can pick baby up right away) to make it easier.
As you can see in my photo (red background), one of baby's thumbs fits --and stays-- in baby's mouth, which is super cute.
I added small "incisions" into the soft back and took out some of the stuffing and added cheap ankle weights into the head (accessible from the soft body) and into the body to make the weight more real. Very easy and it makes baby more fun to hold. Because it is newborn size, it makes it more real to add weight to the head so you have to support it, just like you do a new baby.
Overall, I am very happy with this little baby.
EDIT: I found a carter's preemie size sleeper and it's a little tight. See second photo with green background.
Just before my child turned four a year ago, she said she wanted a baby doll to be her "little sister". I started browsing and looked for a while before I found her! This doll is cute enough to literally take on a life of her own - my 4 year old takes her with us to the grocherie store and while in the cart (or being carried akwardly by small arms) we get double and triple looks from people, especially if leave her in cart when walk a few steps away from the cart. Some have even asked to take a photo of the doll to show someone at home (my daughter is a little possessive of her though). We have made sure to put a blanket over her (doll) when she's left in the backseat of the car so we don't have to worry about someone thinking she's unsupervised and in need of rescuing on a hot day.
We've had her for almost a year now with almost daily use (she's "baby sister" after all) and the only "injury" she's sustained was when my daughter threw the doll up into the air and she scuffed her head against the door frame (ouch!). Body torso has developed a few fuzzy pills from washing occasionlly in a pillow case but nothing to complain about.
She was great at motaviting/ bribing my daughter to take the yucky medicine when she had a bad ear infection (baby sister was holding the treat out and "talking")
This doll is a great price, has a fabric "body" that is stuffed with something like batting. Has harder (not super hard) plastic head, feet & hands. She is about 20" long and about the width of a typical 3 to 6ish month old. Am pretty sure her crib shoes are the size for a 6month old (but the leg is rather wide where it attaches at an odd angle to her very short but wide feet) so shoes that will have elastic at the top of the shoe or some kind of flexible closure is more ideal. My daughter has put her into some of the Build A Bear clothing items but honestly her head doesn't fit well through them and she's a much better fit for the baby clothing in size 6mo up through 9mo (large 3mo items and up to 12 month clothing if has been washed a lot and has shrinkage; best pant size is 3mo or 6 mo items). Baby clothing is far more ideal for fit and will be far cheaper (especially if you go to a thrift store or can use "hand-me-downs". She barely fits in the cheap metal framed umbrella style doll stroller. Not sure how she'd fit in the Melissa and Doug Shopping Cart. This doll definitely bulkier than a regular sized American Girl Doll (will not fit in that doll bike seat attachment & have not identified if there's a baby carrier that she'll fit into - looked too big for the doll carrier that is styled after the Urgo/Baby Bjorn baby carriers (haven't tried though; only saw carrier that belong to a friend of my child). One of the pics shows a stroller she fits very well into - was a larger (& more expensive) 3 in 1 doll stroller.
I think she had a bit of a "baby" doll smell in the beginning, but nothing unreasonable (we are ones to notice chemically smells).
Am including some photos to show her size. The clothing and plastic bottle and pacifier that she came with still exist and have held up but have not gotten nearly as much use as the doll herself.
Definitely recommend her if you're wanting a baby doll that is life size without spending a fortune. (FYI: Afterwards I did notice some of our local drug stores have slightly smaller sized dolls that are about this price or slightly lower & might fit a bit better in the metal doll umbrella style stroller and you can see in person the size which was the toughest part of buying this one). Am glad I got her & my daughter adores her - definitely the easiest way to provide your child with a little sibling (not the quietest though).
The size of this doll is great! I ordered two for a 2yo who became big sister to a set of twins. She loves them. I turned one into girl by pushing small stud earrings into the ears. I got Newborn diapers and clothes from the sale rack at the local discount store.
I was looking for a baby doll that would fit newborn regular baby clothes so my daughter could practice and learn how to do snaps, zippers, and buttons and this doll fit the match. I ordered 2 of these i was hoping they would be the same doll but as description said they could vary and they did. I was hoping for the same doll so when family members come over with younger daughters they wouldn't fight over this or that doll they would both look alike but it's ok they are both VERY cute and Im just happy i finally found a big doll that fit real clothes since baby doll clothes is so expensive and cheaply made and are only velcro so she really can't learn from velcro. I am trying to figure out how to post pictures to the article of the two i got so you could see the difference i got one just like the picture and the other has blue eyes with the mouth a little more puckered but open with two teeth still...and the outfit was pink instead of orange (but still both had the lady bug). Can't wait for my daughter to start learning while she is playing and i know she will love it to that she can go shopping for baby clothes for her doll for special occasions like her birthday. FYI thrift stores, yard sales and good wills are great for getting newborn clothes for dirt cheap since it is just for a doll baby, also can you use your own kids old clothes also. Oh and these dolls make it easy to turn them into a boy or girl which ever you or your child prefers since there is no hair or anything to make it only a girl which a lot of people love that when they see the doll. By the way my daughter is 2
Though the doll was bigger than I envisioned, my 2 yr old LOVES hauling around this doll... and it's shockingly similar in size to her baby brother. I've included a pic for comparison: my son is 3 months old in the 95th percentile wearing size 6 month clothes, doll is wearing NB clothes.
Super cute doll. Extremely life like (at first it's even a little creepy...) My 5 year old loves it. She dresses it in newborn clothes and they fit great. This doll is also very huggable and makes it a great doll for little ones to nurture, as opposed to the hard plastic dolls that ar uncomfortable to hug and hold. I would also like to mention that it is a good sized doll, but lightweight. All in all this is a wonderful doll especially given the price.
This doll is a great size for my 2.5 year old who wanted a “big baby”... it’s about the size of a 6 month old. (As seen in photos.) It is great for pretend play and will fit her sisters old clothes... also REAL pacifiers and diapers. Quality is ok. It’s head is a bit large but she doesn’t seem to notice.
Cute baby doll, fits in newborn clothes. Kind of a large head. I'm annoyed that it wasn't made to go in short sleeved anything. Nuk pacifiers and our dolls thumb stay in its mouth just fine. Newborn diapers don't work well, size 1 or even 2 might be better. Freaked everyone out Christmas morning with it being so life size. My almost two year old loves her to pieces.
Adorable baby. Not gender specific, so it can be dressed as a boy/girl. Chubby, and true to size so it fits perfectly into real newborn size baby clothing & 6 month hats. Realistic looking, without being creepy. Lightweight. Nice tanned colour, could pass as Hispanic, Native, biracial, or black. I'm VERY pleased, and my daughter was ecstatic on Christmas morning.
Cute, sturdy baby doll. Body and half of each arm and leg is stuffed material. Hair is plastic. Wish it had a little weight to it, but it is still cute and I think my 2yo will love it. This baby is an upgrade from the 12 inch one she got last year. The picture shows the doll wearing a newborn diaper (not shown), newborn sleep outfit, and newborn hat. The diapers are a tiny bit too small, but they fit well since the body is cloth and can get smooshed. The sleeper is a bit too big, but I saw in another review that a preemie outfit is skin tight. The hat is meant to have a folded brim, but it needed to be unfolded to have any chance of fitting. 0-3 month would fit much better I think, but I don't want to go to the trouble of returning it.
My mother in law originally bought this doll for my daughter two years ago. Since then we now have a 16 month old boy who loves this doll. I decided to order a second doll to limit the fighting over "baby Josh", but I'm very disappointed in the quality of this new doll. I'm not sure if the quality of the manufacturer has changed or if this is a knock off doll? There are many obvious quality differences you can notice in the pictures. It feels and looks like it has less stuffing in the legs and arms, the clothing and diaper material is completely different, the head, feet and hands are much larger on the new doll, the head is square and ears are lopsided on the new doll, and the material the doll is made of is much different feeling (rougher) and looking. Haven't decided if I will keep it or send it back. Quality wise it's about a $10 doll.
Falling apart after 2 months. The magnet has left a awful black spot on its face. The quality sucks for a $30 doll. I would not recommend, seems super cute at first but does not last long before it’s trashed. And all he does is sleep with it. The magnet from the pacifier discolored the face. Disappointed
So cute super soft I had been looking for a soft boy baby as my son loves them. A little pricey for a fabric baby doll that's doesn't do anything but I would buy it again!
Really disappointed with the quality of this doll. My son has only had it for a couple weeks, and it mostly just stays in his crib but the stitching is already falling apart Not worth the price in my opinion.
Got it as 1st bd gift for my baby girl. Her brothers 3, 5 y o stole it) nice quality, fun fabrics, good toy
We bought this for our newly 12 month old. She loves it! Loves putting the magnetic pacifier off and on his mouth. He is soft for her to cuddle. Perfect first doll!
This is the cutest doll ever and it’s bigger than I expected! So sweet.
My son loves his baby.. brings it to bed and daycare with him. Owned it for 6 months; holds up well and washes nicely. Great quality!
Melts my heart catching him feeding baby or wrapping it in a blanket. His little sister is due in 4 months and I think he'll do great!
