Own up, who else refuses to buy their own children toys that make too much noise?
I can’t be the only one who cringes when the kids open toys from friends and relatives that is every parents nightmare (I totally did not just buy my grandson a drum kit – nope, no way, ha!)
When we were offered the chance to review Cry Babies I was a little hesitant as its one of those toys the girls are always asking for but I feel could be played with for 2 minutes then discarded. Surely the kids would get bored with a crying baby, one that won’t stop unless you put its dummy back in, one that can cry at the drop of a hat….but it may be a good deterrent for teenage pregnancies! Bring it on!
There are 3 Cry Babies available, Coney, Lea and Lala. Lea arrived and I have to admit she is pretty darn cute! Those eyes are adorable and the little rosebud lips look just like the girls’ did when they were teeny. She is not an ‘in proportion’ doll as her head is pretty darn huge compared to the rest of her but this makes her perfect for little arms and cuddles.
Dressed in her little animal print onesie she has movable arms and legs so she can sit down unaided and when you pull down her hood there is a little water cap in the back of her head to fill with ‘tears’. We are yet to try her with the tears as I have heard they just pour out and soak anything and everything around you! We will be doing this in the garden for sure!
Coney and Lala have been added to the Christmas list but I am not sure Santa will be able to fulfill that order, she is everything I thought she would be….annoying, cringe worthy and the crying may start off as a little whimper but it soon builds to a full blown tantrum!
THE GIRLS LOVE HER!
Santa may need to talk me round but if the girls give me the same big doe eyes as Lea then I am sure they will be finding another two babies in their present pile this year!
Cry Babies retail at £29.99 and available from all good toy shops.
