Baby Annabell Brother Review

For rather a long period of time, I wasn't sure that my daughter would ever enjoy playing with dolls. She much preferred pirates and super-heroes, but in the past year she has really changed, and at the age of 7, she now adores to play with dolls. She is also sill very happy playing super-heroes or pirates too! She was sent the Baby Annabell Brother doll, which is a lifelike baby doll. It encourages children to play in a realistic and nurturing way.  The doll responds to touch and makes real sounds, burps, gurgles, cries real tears and even wets his nappy.

Initially I was slightly disconcerted as my daughter's favourite thing was when the doll cried, so she kept trying to make it cry so that she could comfort it. I have to admit that I found it quite stressful when it started crying, so I was pleased when she grew tired of making it cry! She named the baby David and looked after him incredibly well. She fed him, gave him his dummy when he needed soothing, rocked him to sleep and cared for him. It was absolutely wonderful to see her in a nurturing role and really enjoying it too.

I think that the Baby Annabell Brother doll is a really lovely toy.  It encourages social skills and also problem solving, having to work out why the baby is crying and how to help them to stop. It's great for younger children, but even at seven years old, my daughter enjoys playing with it.

Baby Annabell Brother is aimed at children aged 3+ and has an RRP of £54.99. He comes with a bottle, dummy, nappy, bib and locket. There are also a huge range of accessories which you can purchase to go with your Baby Annabell doll too. To find out more, check out the website. It does requires 4 x AA batteries.
