As my daughters are getting older, I am starting to see how their likes and dislikes differ. Take for instance dolls. Savannah never really took to dolls, except for her Jessie from Toy Story doll. Instead of carrying around a doll, she prefers her green blankie. On the flip side, Arabella took to a doll shortly after birth, and doesn't go anywhere without one. When she is not dragging a doll by its hair around the house like a caveman :-), she is hugging and snuggling next to one of her dolls. Arabella is a fan of all the Disney princesses, especially Belle from Beauty and Beast. We have a few different Belle dolls -- including both interactive dolls and dolls that sing.
So, when I had the opportunity to try out one of TollyTot's My First Disney Baby Princess dolls, as part of my holiday gift guide, how could I saw "no". And, I knew just the person to help me test out the doll. Below are a few photos I took of Arabella. The larger photo is of her with her eyes shut. I had told her to close her eyes for a surprise, and then placed the doll in her lap. Once she opened her eyes, she didn't move from that spot in the kitchen for at least 5 minutes, as she was just excited about her new doll. At first, she fussed when I took the box away so that I could take it out of the package. But, once I handed the doll to her, her eyes sparkled and she had a big grin on her face. She was in love.
It has been a week since I received this doll to review from TollyTots, and Arabella hasn't grown tired of it yet. Instead, it has been the doll of choice when we go out and have the girls grab a toy to bring with them for the car ride. And, every night when we put her to bed, she grabs her blankie and doll and can't fall asleep without her My First Disney Baby Princess doll from TollyTots. I have asked Santa to bring her a few other dolls from this collection for Christmas, so lets home she goes crazy for these as she has for her Aurora doll from TollyTots. :-)
With the holidays right around the corner, why not surprise your little one with a doll from Tollytots? I have seen TollyTots make the hot toy list in various magazines and on blog sites, and can see why after seeing how Arabella has taken to her doll. So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to the TollyTots website and browse their selection of dolls, for all ages.
