Role play is vital to children’s developmental skills. Children get to explore their imaginations, learn life skills for adulthood such as becoming independent, socializing with the world and imitating real world situations. Doll babies are the perfect toys to teach children the responsibility roles of parents from feeding the doll, dressing, putting down for a nap or bedtime, to washing and teaching them right from wrong.
Zoe enjoys playing with baby dolls that actually do something other than her just carrying it around. Little Mommy baby dolls are one of our favorite brands, where Zoe has been caring and nurturing their dolls from a young age. She still plays with her My Very Real Baby Doll often.
We recently had the opportunity to check out Little Mommy Bubbly Bathtime Doll. This doll allows children to play mommy by giving her a bath. Children will adore filling the bathtub, filling the included reservoir with water or bubble solution and washing the doll.
Little Mommy Bubbly Bathtime Doll includes the doll, reservoir, pouring cup, diaper and bath towel. The doll has a spot on her belly area that represents the doll being dirty.
When placed in water, the spot magically disappears. It does reappear fairly quickly with room temperature, so Zoe continued to add water to the spot so she would stay clean.
I highly recommend allowing your child to play with her in the bathtub at home or with a towel underneath, as playtime is much fun with her, guaranteeing splashing will happen. She enjoyed cleaning her doll, using bubbles to wash and drying her in her adorable hooded towel after. I would have liked to see a small washcloth included for children to wash, but a home washcloth or hands work just fine. To rinse her children can use the tub water, or clean out the bubble reservoir and add clean water to rinse her clean.
This doll taught Zoe not to use too hot of water as she knows this can burn a baby or herself, and not too cold of water as baby would shiver. She enjoyed enacting playtime in the tub just like she does every night having her Little Mommy doll splash. Bath time with her doll has been an enjoyable experience and not a day goes by where she doesn’t play with the doll. She does have a drain hole in the back to easily drain water from her.
This would make the perfect gift for little girls to experience all the benefits of bath time fun while learning that hygiene and keeping baby clean is essential. Little Mommy Bubbly Bathtime doll is recommended for children 2+ and is available in Caucasian and African American.
