JC Toys Real Girl Doll Review & Giveaway

0 Shares

We recently added a new addition to our family, a baby boy.  This has been a big adjustment for his 5 year-old big sister who now has to share the spotlight.  She has been a wonderful big sister so far, and a great “Mommy’s helper”.  She is the perfect age to provide a helping hand when Mommy’s two hands are busy!  She is also very into her baby dolls right now.  She sees me diapering, feeding, and playing with her little brother, and she does the same things with her baby dolls. 

The benefits of doll play are incredibly important, as DisneyFamily.com recently put, “doll play is one of the very first indicators of the ability for imaginative play. One of the first bits of make-believe child development experts see is a very young toddler ‘feeding’ their baby or stuffed animal.”  She is going to be a great Mommy someday!  We received the Real Girl Newborn doll to review from JC Toys’ new “La Newborn” collection.    JC Toys has been making high quality realistic baby dolls for over 30 years, and their new additions to their line-up are no exception. The newest dolls, priced from $12.99 to $59.99, allow youngsters to role-play the hugs, kisses and cuddles that they observe in their own family.

What’s remarkable about these dolls are their faces — full of amazing expressions and realistic eyes, hands, nose and even belly buttons. The secret to JC Toys’ longevity in the toy market is their famous sculpts and accessory designs. My daughter was ecstatic to receive this doll.  She knew it was on its way, and every day she kept asking, “Is my baby doll going to be here today?”   The doll did not disappoint.  When the box arrived at our doorstep, she couldn’t open it up fast enough!  You can see the pure joy on her face.

 The best thing about this doll, and what differentiates it from other dolls, is how remarkably real it looks.  You can see that the manufacturers have taken a lot of care in replicating a real newborn’s features.  The Real Girl and Real Boy dolls are also anatomically correct, which adds to the realness of the dolls.  Here is our 2 month-old son next to the Real Girl doll.  Do you see the resemblance?  My daughter keeps calling her baby doll, who she has named Alyssa, “my little brother’s little sister”!

Right away, my daughter got busy putting a newborn diaper on the doll, feeding her a bottle, and giving her lots and lots of hugs.  This baby doll is going to be well taken care of!

This doll and many other adorable ones, with various facial expressions and ethnicities, are available via the JC Toys website.  These dolls would be the perfect addition to any family.
