Classic Tiny Tears Doll has had a Makeover

If you're a regular reader of my blog then you will know by now that Eva is a big fan of baby dolls and playing mummy, so we were very grateful to be asked if we would like to review the Classic Tiny Tears doll. 



Tiny Tears is one of the original baby doll brands. In fact you may have had one when you were a child. She celebrated her 50th anniversary last year which we were lucky enough to be a part of. If you can't remember the review we wrote then have a read here, Tiny Tears 50th Anniversary Doll.

She is back fresh from her celebrations and with a brand new look. Tiny Tears has had a makeover. She now features a new dress which is specifically designed for Tiny Tears. She is made for children aged between 3-6 so perfect for Eva's age.



When she arrived Eva was thrilled. She came with a bottle, potty, new dress, knickers, dummy and a hairbrush. She can drink her bottle, cry and use the potty.

The first thing that caught Eva's eye, much to my surprise, was not her pretty new dress but her lovely long hair. She instantly wanted to brush it. She spent the best part of an hour grooming her and popping lots of various clips and bobbles in from her own collection.

Her new dress and hairband are lovely. They make her look more like a toddler than a young baby which is what I think Eva likes about her. She has a newborn looking doll which she just feeds and changes the nappy with but with this one she she does more 'grown up' things. She plays games with her and also tries to teach her things which I think is really cute.

She also uses a lot of imaginative/role play and uses both her Tiny Tears dolls together. She calls them sisters. They are like real sisters. They quite often fight but they love each other really. I love a child's imagination.



Eva has been really happy with her new Tiny Tears. I would have liked to have seen her have a new function but then again that would take away from her 'classic' features. The fact that she's not an all singing, all dancing doll teaches Eva to use her imagination more.

The new doll is available from all good retailers and you can find out more about her here, Tiny Tears Classic.

  3. I loved my Tiny Tears doll when I was a little girl. She came everywhere with me! I love the look of the new Tiny tears, my daughter also has one and she spends ages brushing her hair! I really like that it's not an all singing and dancing doll too. xx

  4. I love that they're not all singing and dancing too. I think it's so much better for them to use their imagination. My daughter is absolutely OBSESSED with dolls. She is so maternal, it is really lovely to watch her interact with her dolls and look after them. I used to have Tiny Tears when I was growing up. I'd love her to have one of these like I did. The new design is fab. xx

  16. I love this doll and had one when I was little which is in box in our attic with a few other things from when I was younger, I also think my mums tiny tears is in the same box. If you put those and this one together you would definitely see the changes of the doll through the years
