I love having a little girl, when I was a toddler I hated dolls and would throw them out of the window, apparently I was a real tomboy and anything girly just didn't exist in our house. Now that I have a daughter of my own I love that fact that she loves to play with dolls and dress up. Amelia has always loved to push her dolls around in her pram and tuck them up in their beds, she kisses them and feeds them and occasionally will throw them around but I can see that she adores playing with them and shows them affection, it's so sweet to watch.
A little girl can never have too many dolls and we were recently given the opportunity to review the Mon Bébé Calin Cuddle Baby Doll from Corolle. Corolle is a premium doll brand from France who have classic dolls for every age and stage. With a huge range that cater for children from birth upwards, each Corolle doll has their own unique features and style which have plenty of French traditions steeped in them.
The Calin Cuddle is aimed for toddlers from 18 months and has a soft bean bag filled body with plastic pellets with hard vinyl arms, legs and head. It is easy to pose or sit. She also comes with a headband and dummy which can be attached to her arm. It has life like blinking eyes with eyelashes which close when lying down. It is a high quality and beautiful doll. Unlike other dolls the Calin Cuddle is far more realistic and much softer to cuddle.
The dolls measures about 30cm from head to toe and is very lightweight for your toddler to carry. Our favourite thing about this doll is that her smooth skin is delicately scented with vanilla — a Corolle signature. It isn't too overpowering but is nice to smell when cuddling which Amelia loves doing!
You can also purchase many accessories for the dolls such as pushchairs, cradles and clothes. Calin Cuddle is available to purchase for £25 which I think is very reasonable given the quality of the doll. and the fact she is like a real baby. The Calin Cuddle doll would be perfect as a first doll or to prepare them for an arrival of a sibling. She would also make a lovely Christmas present for any young child and there are also many different styles of dolls available depending on taste.
