What It IsNow there are Baby Alive dolls for girls young and old. Baby Alive Sips & Cuddles is the first doll in the new Baby Alive 1st for Me line. This line encourages the earliest care-giving experiences for girls as young as 18 months. It's dinnertime for Sips & Cuddles and girls can "feed" this snuggly plush doll from the yellow bottle tethered to her arm. The doll "slurps" it all up! Sips & Cuddles also responds to hugs from little mommies and will coo like a real baby to show delight. The doll is machine washable and requires two AA batteries, which are included.
For older girls, the new Baby Alive Better Now Baby puts them in the role of Dr. Mom. Use the stethoscope to check the doll's "heartbeat," make sure she "drinks" plenty of fluid from her sippy cup, and don't forget to change her diaper! Better Now Baby will also take the "medicine" from her "magic" spoon. There are adhesive strips so girls can cover any boo-boos and a soft blanket for cuddling the doll. When Better Now Baby feels better, the teddy bear face on the thermometer will turn from a sad face into a smile. No batteries are required!
Girls love to mimic the actions of their own moms and nurturing baby doll play gives them the chance to be "moms" to their own "babies."
