As a child I clearly remember having a number of dolls which I played with, to be honest I wasn’t that into baby style dolls as I wasn’t particularly maternal nor into babies whether they should be toys or real for that matter. E on the other hand seems to rather enjoy playing ‘Mummy’ to her dolls and as such we’ve collected a number of babies throughout the years which E will push around in prams, dress in various clothes and generally care for when she feels the urge.
Last year we reviewed a rather plastic and fantastic Zapf Creation Interactive Unicorn which E has since covered in various stickers and regularly spends time styling its hair and running it around her bedroom, I’ve even seen her attempt riding it herself despite being warned it may break due to the her weight!
Said Unicorn has lacked a rider for some time now up until this week when we were sent the rather beautiful Baby Born ‘Wonderland Fairy Rider Doll’ to share and review on this here blog.
The Baby Born Wonderland Fairy Rider Doll
The Baby Born ‘Wonderland Fairy Rider Doll’ is a rather pretty, interactive baby doll featuring a shimmering, glitzy fairy-style dress, fairy wings, a tiara and a range of sparkly accessories.
This rather enchanting doll has nine interactive functions as it is able to:
- Drink from a bottle
- Eat food from a spoon
- Make use of the potty
- Produce wet nappies
- Move her head, hands and legs
- Open and shut her eyes
- Produces tears (cries)
- Fall asleep
- May be bathed in water.
As you can imagine our daughter E was over the moon to receive this doll and although we’ve only had it for a short amount of time she has already spent quite some time experimenting with feeding, hydrating and dressing the doll by using the bottle, special food sachet and jewellery included within the set.
Other than making use of the babies bodily functions, E seems rather set upon using this doll at present as a rider for her beloved Interactive Unicorn.
With this doll being labelled as ‘interactive’ I was half expecting for it to sing, dance, talk, walk or something a little more than it does. Despite not doing any of the above our daughter seems rather taken by this doll as it’s not the ‘stereotypical baby doll’, it’s far more glamorous, glitzy and girly which is right up our daughters street.
There are a wide range of accessories included within the ‘Wonderland Fairy Rider Doll Playset’ including:
- 2 x Bracelets
- 1 x Necklace
- 1 x Potty
- 1 x Plate
- 1 x Spoon
- 1 x Sachet of special food
- 1 x Bottle (with cap)
- 1 x Dummy / Pacifier
- 1 x Pacifier Clip
- 1 x Nappy
Unlike the majority of our children’s toys the Wonderland Fairy Rider Doll requires absolutely no batteries what so ever reducing the outgoing costs in comparison to other dolls of a similar nature.
Pricing and Purchasing Information
Suitable for children aged three years and over the Baby Born Wonderland Fairy Rider Doll has a recommended retail price of £52.99 and is available from a wide range of high street and online retailers including Toys R Us, Argos and Amazon where it is currently on offer for only £38.49!
Top up / replacement food sachets and nappies can be purchased separately should you find yourself short of these. We will almost certainly require further nappies and food sachets at the rate that E seems to be using the doll, this does come at an extra cost which may be worth considering when purchasing the doll.
This beautiful ‘Wonderland Fairy Rider Doll’ is far better than the stereotypical ‘baby doll figure’ which has been produced and sold time and time again from a range of suppliers and shops. This doll has added glitz, glam and sparkle which children will love. Not only that but with its wide range of functions children can have fun feeding, watering, potty training and caring for this doll through realistic and imaginative role play.
