EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Why is baby Kristal crying? Kids can play doctor with the Cry Babies Kristal Gets Sick & Feels Better doll. Use the six interactive accessories to find out what's wrong with Kristal and make her feel better. 

Kristal is a large baby doll wearing a fuzzy bear-themed hooded onesie. To make the doll cry, you'll first need to fill the water tank inside the doll's head. Once that's done, you can turn on the doll and start the water works. If the doll is just crying, give Kristal her pacifier to stop the crying. If she's crying with a cough, place the medicine bottle in her mouth. If Kristal is crying with red spots on her face, use the syringe to give Kristal an injection on her bottom. You can use the thermometer to check whether or not Kristal has a fever. If she does, dampen her teddy bear cloth and pass it over the contact points of Kristal's bow. And you can use the stethoscope to check Kristal's heartbeat. If it has a high rhythm, that means Kristal is sick and needs to be monitored for symptoms so you can cure her. A cheat sheet is included to help you remember what to do when the different symptoms present. 

Is It Fun?

We think little kids will definitely like taking care of Kristal. The realistic crying sounds and actual crying action enhances the nurturing roleplay experience. This does cry a lot, so be aware that you should play with this in an area where it's okay for things to get wet. However, you can play with this minus the water if it gets to be too much.

Who It’s For

The Kristal Gets Sick & Feels Better doll is for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Three AA batteries are included for the in-store try-me features, so it's recommended that you replace them before you play for best results.

Because this doll uses water, you'll want to play in an area where it's okay if things get a little wet. Only the pacifier stops the tears, so if you've taken the pacifier out of the doll's mouth to do anything else, the tears will still fall until the water tank is empty.

It was difficult to get the medicine bottle into the doll's mouth, but that's because you're supposed to touch the medicine bottle to the doll's nose. The instructions for this were not clear.
