Have you ever been startled by something, only to laugh at yourself over it?
A few days ago I was organizing Christmas presents in the basement, while the kids were upstairs napping. I was trying to be very quiet, so as to not disturb them since I was right under their bedrooms. As I was unboxing a doll, I heard “Mommy, I love you.” I jumped about two foot, thinking one of the kids had sneaked into the basement, and then realized that it was the Little Mommy My Very Real Baby Doll, which I received for review from Mattel, that I was unboxing.
About the Little Mommy My Very Real Baby Doll (from Mattel)
Does your little one want know what it’s like to be a Mommy? This doll is much like a toddler, and little mommies love giving this sweetie a snack and fixing her boo-boo. The doll will even give good night kisses at bedtime, before closing her eyes. Nighty-night!
Incredible lifelike movement and sounds
Tongue lights up green when she licks her juice bar
You can "magically" wipe away her boo-boo, too
Includes doll with lots of play accessories
Requires 4 AA Alkaline Batteries (included)
Recommended for ages 3+
Very real, indeed. I couldn’t stop laughing for several minutes afterwards. I thought I would show you a few of her sayings. Please forgive the crudeness of the video, I did this one without Hubs expert editing assistance!
Sister just loves baby dolls. It wasn’t until recently that she cared whether or not a doll made noise or moved. That all changed one day when she found a baby doll that cries at the pantry where we volunteer. She wagged that thing around all morning, comforting it, cuddling it, talking to it. So much so, that when it came time to go, the Pastor that runs the pantry told me to take the doll home with me, so Sister could continue to play with it. She kept asking me, “Mommy, what’s the baby saying? I don’t understand hers whining.” Hmmm. Wonder where she has heard that… LOL.
I’m not sure what I think of the glowing green mouth, but I think Sister will like it, and that is what really matters. Because of her reaction to that one, I just know she is going to LOVE this one. I envision hours of play with this toy, and can’t wait to see her mother it.
They sure didn’t have dolls like this when I was little!
