Tyler Lee was recently sent a lovely toy to review, the sweet little Baby Annabell Baby Brother doll from Zapf Creation. I think this is one of the most adorable little dolls on the market, he's just adorable. When Tyler Lee saw the doll he was delighted and found it such a novelty that mummy had a baby boy and now he did too. He's named his doll Sammie and Sammie now "lives" in his bedroom - he's even tucked him in and taken him to bed with him, which was adorable to witness.
Baby Annabell Baby Brother doll comes dressed in a beautiful blue velour babygro with matching, removable hat. He also comes with a dummy, a bottle, a bib and a heart shaped pendant. The doll is about the size of a very small newborn baby and has a very realistic face - complete with opening and shut eyes and very soft skin, perfect for little ones to cuddle and mind to their hearts content.
This doll is very true to life - something which delighted Tyler Lee as he was like a real baby to him. It cries, babbles and gurgles, as well as having mouth motion and sucking noises for when it's being fed a bottle. The doll also closes it's eyes to sleep and makes sleepy, snoring baby sounds too. The doll can also cry real tears, so it really is a realistic doll for little ones to play with. The doll can't sit up unaided, just like a normal newborn baby, but can easily be propped up with a pillow for playtime.
The doll has an on/off button on it's back, located underneath his clothes (these can be opened easily at the back as they are just Velcro fastened). However, even without the batteries in or being turned on, the Baby Annabell Baby Brother doll is still great to play with.
The Baby Annabell Baby Brother doll requires 4AA batteries, these aren't included in the box. The doll is suitable for children aged 3+. The Baby Annabell Baby Brother doll is €69.99/£49.99 and is available from all good toy shops.
