However, in the past few weeks Little Sister B has been riveted each and every time she saw the ad featuring one particular doll and one lucky girl:
Mommy, that baby has her own bathtub!
Did you see that, Mommy? You can REALLY wash her!
(Stunned silence) Those purple spots really disappeared! Did you see? They're gone!
And so on, etc. Each and every time the commercial aired.
To be honest, I didn't pay too close of attention the first few times. But once I started to watch, I have to admit that I understood her excitement. My girls love baby dolls and they love bath time, so this was the perfect way to combine the two while engaging their maternal instinct.
It seems, as usual, that Little Mommy has created just the right blend of imagination, entertainment and nurturing with their Little Mommy Bubbly Bathtime doll.
Specially designed for little girls as young as 18 months, Little Mommy provides products that offer play for all ages and all stages of a little girl's life. From infant and newborn traditional doll options to fully interactive babies and toddlers that can walk, cry, crawl, eat, sneeze, play peek-a-boo, go potty and much more, there is sure to be a doll for every young girl.
Even better, these dolls are are available in different ethnicities so that little girls everywhere are able to play with and love a baby that resembles themselves. What a great way for a little mommy to feel an even closer bond!
Therefore, when a Little Mommy Bubbly Bathtime doll arrived, I had no doubt that both of my daughters would be overjoyed to participate in giving her a good scrub-a-dub-dub after a long day of play.
Right out of the package, we admired the small details and cute additions that had gone into making this doll unique and special.
Containing the baby herself, her bird towel/robe, diaper, bathtub, soap pump dispenser, bird-shaped pouring cup and instructions, it took less than two minutes before Little Sister B and I had the bath prepared and ready to go.
After filling the bathtub with warm water, I followed Little Mommy's suggestion to fill the soap dispenser with bubble bath, and hooked it easily onto the side of the tub.
All that was left to do was cover a section of the table with a towel and Little Sister B was ready to clean her baby up from head to toe.
As well as being able to play with the water, Little Sister B couldn't get enough of the working foam dispenser and being able to shoot out more and more bubbles...
...as well as her constant amazement at the way that the purple "dirty" marks on her baby disappeared as she washed them. Magic!
The color change spots return as soon as the baby has cooled back to room temperature (which is pretty quickly), so while I think that Little Sister B would prefer that her baby could stay "clean" a little bit longer, it just means that she can wash, re-wash and re-wash again and again!
Giving the ability to truly emulate Mommy, this Bubbly Bathtime doll, her cute pink tub, and her working foam dispenser all come together for a great deal of bubbly bath fun. Both of my girls have had a great time using the bird-shaped pouring cup to rinse this baby clean, as well as have brought her right into the real bathtub with them at times to let her get in a bit of a swim while scrubbing her up as well.
Whether in or out of the water, there is something about a doll that allows a girl to realistically mimic the nurturing role of being mom, celebrating everything from major milestones to giggly everyday moments. Little Mommy has easily captured that innocence and fun with Bubbly Bathtime and I love the way that this doll helps express and encourage fun as well as responsibility.
Available in store or online at Amazon.com, Target.com, ToysRUs.com and more for $21.99, this doll comes in Caucasian and African-American versions and is sure to bring a great deal of creative, imaginative wholesome fun for ages 2 and up.
And, thanks to the generosity of Little Mommy, one person will have a cuddly baby in need of cleaning of their own, because...
