“ Brand: Zapf Creation / Type: Doll „
This is my daughters latest doll which has been added to her family of dolls which include Annabell and baby new born. I must admit this is one of my favourites but the most expensive for the extras i.e. clothes and accessories.
I brought Chou Chou from Toys r us for £34.99 which seems to be the going rate on the market right now, i believe you can get it cheaper online at Amazon. At Toys r us i also got a good deal because if you spent over £40 on Chou Chou, Annabell or baby born items you got a free dolls high chair worth £20 which was ideal.
What Can the Doll do?
This Doll is an interactive doll, so will interact with items that come with the doll or that you can buy separate. Baby Chou Chou knows when she is being fed, when her teddy is on her chest, when someone strokes her check, when her jacket has been put on and she will react accordingly by talking.
Also if you buy the interactive accessories like the bed, changing mat, sling she will also interact with them and come out with more words or sounds. Warning because this doll is one of the newest on the market, these items are not cheap.
She can say around 15 different Phrases, Some of the words that Chou Chou says are
Mummy, I'm thirsty
mummy i love you
She is 48 cm tall approx and is well built i.e strong. She requires 3 AA Batteries which wasn't included with the doll i brought. This doll is for the ages of 3 plus, my daughter is 8 and loves it. If you child already has a baby born or Annabell which i believe are very good quality dolls, i believe this doll to be slightly better made but i do have my worries about how long the interactive parts will last, time will tell.
When you buy the doll it comes clothed in a romper suit and Hat and also includes a little teddy bear, bottle and bib.
I have seen an ethnic on online but haven't seen this one in the shops yet. The doll talks in English and n Spanish.
My daughter really loves this doll because of the communication see gets back and spends a lot more time with this doll because of that reason. Also i don't find this dolls voice as annoying as some of the dolls on the market. The only down side is the cost of the extra bits for the doll, i have got round it by asking aunts and uncle for the bits for Christmas so she can build her collection. The doll also shuts off if shes not played with for a while (This saves on batteries).
I would make this a top doll for this Christmas and i can see them going off the selves very quick, so buy early if you want one.
