We were so lucky to be asked to review a very special baby doll who is celebrating her 50th birthday! Tiny Tears was first launched in the UK in the 1960's and to celebrate they have launched a limited edition doll. If you have grown up with dolls then you will instantly recognise the tiny tears name as it's been loved and enjoyed for many generations. Tiny Tears was the first fully functional doll that was able to feed, cry, close its eyes, wet and have moving arms and legs.
Eva is now very much into playing with babies and dolls and loves nothing more than interactive play so we couldn't wait for the doll to arrive.
When she arrived both Eva and I were blown away. As far as baby dolls go, this is probably one of the most beautiful ones i've ever seen. She is absolutely gorgeous. She is dressed in a fantastic pink, sparkly birthday dress and has the most adorable curly hair. Eva loves anything sparkly or pink so this doll was an instant hit before she even came out of the box.
The limited edition doll comes with a feeding bottle and potty. You can feed her with real water and then sit her down on the potty and she will go to the toilet. She also cries and when you lie her down she closes her eyes.
She also comes with a special keepsake commemorative certificate which has its own unique number on it.
Eva has loved playing with her doll. She pushes her around in a pram, puts her in a crib to bed and loves to comb her hair and practise different hair styles with it. She does struggle when she gives the baby water from the bottle. The bootle tip is almost a bit too big for the hole in her mouth so she has to push it in very hard so that the water doesn't leak everywhere.
The doll can be purchased from John Adams and has an rrp of £29.99. I think this is such good value for money as other baby dolls on the market that do exactly the same can be almost double the price. It will make a wonderful present for any child.
