Every little girl and boy has had that favorite item, whether a blanket or doll. We have lots of cloth dolls for my daughter, and she has a great time playing mommy, but she wanted something different. When a cousin recently had a baby, my daughter was after me for a "real baby doll". I finally figured out that that meant a vinyl baby doll. My baby doll was named Zachary, and he was a Corolle baby doll. I knew my daughter would be thrilled with a Corolle doll because they are so real-looking, and because they really are heirloom quality (I also adore the delicious vanilla scent). Corolle dolls come in all shapes and sizes, as they have for over 30 years. Corolle dolls are made for children to bond with.
Our first Corolle doll was the Bebe Do. This adorable soft-bodied baby doll comes complete with its own feeding bottle and soft bunny. It also comes with a book that teaches little girls how to take care of their dolls like a "real mommy". She measures 14 inches, so she is a good size. Her soft body makes her so cuddly, and she is really the perfect size for little girls and their first larger baby doll. Bebe Do has logged a lot of time in my daughter's carriage and cradle.
For "little mamas" that want an even more realistic "baby", the Corolle Bebe Amour is perfect! Bebe Amour is the size of a real 3-month old baby. She has a soft body and sleeping eyes. You can actually use your child's onesies (or even a younger siblings clothing) to dress this doll. It is amazing how real she does feel.
I love that Corolle fosters a child's creativity by giving them these objects of love. Children learn to bond, care for a childhood friend, and make memories to last a lifetime. I love watching my daughter respond to her doll's imagined "needs". Bebe Amour and Bebe Do run the gamut from tired, to hungry to playing. No batteries, no flashing lights, just childhood fun!
