Madame Alexander Newborn Nursery Baby Doll

Madame Alexander Newborn Nursery Baby Doll

Spring 2014 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Price: $109.00

The Madame Alexander Newborn Nursery Baby Dolls are very baby-like baby dolls featuring realistic facial features and bodies, as well as heads full of soft hair. The 19" dolls resemble newborns dressed in soft pajamas and matching hats, weighing 3-4 pounds each and featuring well-made arms and legs that hang and move like an infant's would.

When one reviewer presented the doll to her daughter, she pretended to walk into the room with a real baby and her daughter completely bought the trick. Since the doll is about the same size as a real newborn, buying cute outfits together for the new baby is one fun outing mother and daughter have planned. Because of the doll's realistic appearance, our testers showed deeper levels of connection with them—changing and talking to them, putting them down for naps-and became especially interested in their own baby stories, bringing parents and children closer.
