Baby Alive Doll for Christmas
Make Every Little Girls Dream Come True
The year was 1964, and the newest doll that was coming out for Christmas that year was Baby First Steps. I had seen her in a Christmas catalog and I immediately fell in love with her. When my parents asked me what I most wanted for Christmas I told them that there was only one gift that I wanted, and it was a new doll. My step mother thought that it was Chatty Kathy that I wanted, but when I showed her the doll in the catalog she was quite surprised.
Years later my step mother told me that one night before Christmas in 1964 her and her friend were sitting enjoying a few glasses of wine after I had gone to bed. They were talking about Baby First Steps who was hidden away waiting to be wrapped and put under the Christmas tree. They decided that wanted to see if this doll could actually walk. They carefully took her out of her box and inserted the batteries needed. Apparently they had a lot of fun with my doll that night and the following day they had to go out and purchase new batteries for her.
Let's fast forward to 2013. I've started my Christmas shopping, and for one of my nieces who loves dolls I've purchased for her Baby Alive Wanna Walk. When I saw this doll it reminded me so much of my favorite childhood doll, Baby First Steps, and I knew I had to get it for her. I'm sure it will bring her hours and hours of fun and enjoyment.
Baby Alive Wanna Walk interacts with you, and may say "Hold on tight", as you hold her hands to help her walk. Once ready to walk on her own she may ask you to let her go. Should she happen to fall she'll ask you to help her up.
This doll has 40 different phrases that she says and sometimes she'll also laugh or giggle.
Included in the box are 4 AA batteries, which are inserted into the bottom of the dolls feet. You will need a Philips screw driver to insert the batteries.
This doll is recommended for ages three and up.
Dolls can be set up by pushing on their tummy to speak in English or Spanish.
