I knew Violet would be extremely excited having a new doll as she is utterly obsessed with her babies!
First impressions of the doll was that it was a really life like size, she measures 46cm (18inch) and her expression before putting batteries in her were very realistic.
Baby Annabell is for a child aged 2 years and over, she comes with a few accessories including a bottle, hat & dummy/ comforter which makes having a baby doll even more realistic!
Once we inserted 4 x AA batteries into her back she came to life!
More about Baby Annabell
+ She Cries real tears.
+Her eyes open and close and reacts to any sort of touch or sound.
+She makes some amazingly realistic baby noises giggles, Burps, cooing and crying Graham seriously thought we had a baby in the house until i told him it was the doll!
+When sucking her bottle or dummy she makes the 'suckling' noises and her mouth also moves in and out.
+She also drinks real water from her bottle which is a great added touch in my opinion.
The only Con i can think of and this is from what Violet has said, is that she is a little heavy for her to carry but I'm sure with time as she gets older it won't be a problem.
So would i recommend this doll for your child? I definitely would and so would Violet they are pretty inseparable at the moment!
