Fisher-Price My First Pink Doll
Advantages: Soft, pink, cute, cuddly
Disadvantages: Older children can't give it a bottle or close eyes!
My daughter who is quite keen on babies at the moment has somehow accumulated quite a few dolls and yet I have only purchased her one of these. Within this collection of dolls, she has a few bigger, harder dolls, but also a couple of soft dolls, one of which is this Fisher Price My First Doll which was passed on to my daughter by her older cousin who was past the soft doll stage and into barbies! When it was given to my daughter, since it was second hand, I wasn't quite expecting it to be in as good condition as it arrived in, but it was as good as new. I like Fisher Price toys and I like the quality of Fisher Price toys and this sot first doll was no exception.
Purchasing this doll will cost you around the £10 mark, which is pretty costly for a soft doll, however, there appear to be deals on in the likes of Argos, so it can be picked up cheaper. There is no doubt this is a cute first doll, and so soft, that it could easily be given to a young baby to cuddle as a first soft toy. My daughter was given it as a doll to play with and push around in her toy buggy, rather than as a cuddly toy for her cot.
This doll is pretty much all pink so it is very girly. There are different textures on the doll, especially on the sleeves part that may appeal to a younger child who like to explore textures when teething or grasping. In the tummy area of the doll, it has the words 'Baby's 1st doll'. When the doll is shaken lightly, there is a little rattle, which again will appeal to young babies. This is also a nice soft toy for a baby to cuddle into when sleeping and to use as a little comforter toy.
When my daughter was given this doll, she took to it very quickly as it was so soft, especially in comparison to her harder dolls, which are heavier and more cumbersome for her to move around, and in fact they tend to get thrown into the pram, whereas this soft small doll is more liked to be gently placed in the small play buggy my daughter has. At 17 months, I still think she finds this soft doll more cuddly and easier to play with than the bigger dolls and she likes how she can put it in the buggy herself and it wil sit up as with the bigger dolls she has to try and navigate the dangling legs into the bigger pram that she has, and gets frustrated when she can't get it in.
One thing she doesn't like about this soft doll is that the eyes don't open or shut. Her bigger dolls have eyelids that close and open and she tries desperately to shut the eyelids on this doll and can't understand why they won't close and the doll is always awake, especially when she puts the doll down for a sleep!! This is probably where it is therefore more suitable for a slightly younger child who sees it as a soft toy.
All in all, this is a beautiful first soft doll and my daughter certainly likes it. SHe likes putting her in her buggy and strolling around with it, and she is able to move it around easily, as it is light and small. The eyelids don't move and she can't get her toy bottle into its closed mouth, which frustrates her at times, but it is still ideal as a first doll.
