If you read our review of the Toypedia, the toy library then you know that the first toy that my daughter picked up from Toypedia was the Fisher Price Little Mommy Doll. Every little girl has little mommy instincts that they pick from who else, but their own mommies. I think the need to take care and mother are inherent in children and pretend toys like dolls, kitchen sets, doctor sets etc are great for developing these caring skills and nurturing part of their brain.
So here is the Review of Fisher Price Little Mommy Doll- My very real baby.
Fisher Price My Very Real Baby Doll
This is an interactive, life-like Doll with very real movements and sounds. There are six accessories with the Doll- A teddy bear, a juice pop, band-aid,wiping cloth, bowl and spoon. 15″ doll, makes 150 sounds, has touch active sensors & requires 4 AA batteries.
Price: Rs 5499/-
My 3 year old was beyond excited about this doll. From the moment we reached the house all she wanted to do was to play with that toy. The Doll is pretty and cute but then that is not what sets it apart from other dolls. It is the level of interaction that the doll has with the child which brings out the real little mommy in every girl.
It is an attention seeking and demanding doll and would keep saying some phrase or the other. The most common ones being “I am hungry mommy”, I am hurt mommy, tickle me mommy, will you clean me up mommy and so on. It was adorable watching my daughter play such an attentive mom to her doll.
If laid down for a while the doll or if inactive, it will say that it is sleepy and demand her teddy bear which she will clasp in her hands in a very life-like movement. Samaira related with this too as she also needs her blankie to sleep.
Another unique feature in the doll are the sensors which are present inside her mouth and on the knee. When the doll requests for an ice pop and you place it in her mouth, the doll will make slurpy sounds and her tongue actually becomes green. Similarly when she says that she has got a boo-boo her knee becomes red and you have to put a band-aid on it. All this adds to the real life factor of the doll and my daughter was chuckling and giggling all the time due to the doll’s antics.
I would suggest that you switch it off after a while because of course it consumes batteries and also because any movement to the doll will make it speak which might startle your child especially at night.
To Buy or To Not Buy
It has a very high interaction level and will keep your kids entertained for a long time. It is an excellent toy for imaginary play and for developing nurturing skills in young children.
To Not Buy
It is quite an expensive toy and from what I observed my 5 year old niece lost interest in it after a while. So you might want to buy this doll for your toddlers but not for young kids.
