Baby Alive

While loitering around the airport during our recent holiday trip to Bali (will blog later) Minka Aire, we was fascinated by this new toy called “Baby Alive”.  They are made to react to touches, call out for attention and is able to drink and wet! After months of pestering by the Little Munchkin, finally Daddy bought one that says:  “I Drink and Wet”.

The set came with a toothbrush, toothpaste, biscuit, a real drinking bottle(!!!) and a real disposable diaper (!!!).  This is where the fun is.  Just simply fill bottle with juices, milk or any liquid.  Feed the bottle to the doll.  You will be surprised to see that the tongue actually retract and liquid goes in through the mouth and out it goes to the diaper.

As we did not have a spare diaper, I refrained the Little Munchkin to feed the doll any liquid.  Maybe will tailor made a cloth nappy.  That way, we can wash and reuse. Another way to save the diaper is to removed the diaper and sat the doll in the basin.  But I won’t encourage anything like that.  You know, it is not very appropriate to feed a baby naked while sitting in the basin. We don’t do that in real life, so we better not do that even if they are unreal.  Kids tend to pick up thing very fast.

The only thing the doll doesn’t do is poo and making sound.  Well, if you want ‘her’ to poo, try feeding ‘her’ some yellowish liquid.  That is the closest to poo colour *wink*.  There are a few version of Baby Alive in the market.  Little Munchkin preferred the one that “bounces and babbles”.  When we first saw it, the doll was bouncing in her crib and making gurgling baby noises.  Daddy made a bad choice this time or else we would have request him to get one that is more interesting. Lesson to learn – kids doesn’t like anything quiet.

The Little Munchkin actually commented:  “Mummy, the YouTube bluff people wan.  How come my Baby Alive can’t talk.” Call this a technology advancement or what?
