Luvabella Newborn Doll from Spinmaster **REVIEW**

** AD - Review **

Evelyn is rarely with a baby in her arms, she absolutely loves playing mummy and caring for her dolls and its honestly one of the sweetest things to watch. She is so gentle, kind and caring which is lovely to see, especially when I catch her singing little songs to her babies too.

So you can imagine how excited she was when she was recently asked if she would like to add a new baby to her collection, the Luvabella newborn.

The new Luvabella newborn is more than just a doll, she is one of the most life-like and interactive dolls we have come across! She really does interact with you with her realistic facial features and movements, sounds and range of accessories that can actually use.

Luvabella newborn makes a range of sounds and she can express if she’s hungry, fussy, happy or gassy, just like a real baby! Tickle her tummy and she will giggle and coo for more. If Luvabella starts fussing offer the bottle or dummy to see if she wants either. When you place the bottle or dummy near her mouth she will say "ahhhh" and open her mouth for you to place it into. She will then suckle on it, don't forget to rub her back when she is done with her milk, she will really burp! If she is tired, offer her soother and carefully rock her to sleep in your arms.

When Luvabella newborn falls asleep you can actually see her chest gentle rising and falling as well as a faint heartbeart whilst she makes the sweetest little snoring noises. Evelyn loved this feature and its actually somehow helped her with going to bed lately too. She seems so much more content when she has her little Luvabella doll tucked into her cot next to her.  

Evelyn already has the original Luvabella doll which is by far her favourite! She loves how interactive she is and all of  the fun features it has, however she does find it quite big and therefore, dur to the hard plastic body, quite difficult to carry or hug.

However the new Luvabella newborn seems to have ironed out all of those issues. The doll itself is slightly smaller, perfect for younger children plus it has a soft slightly weighted body making her easier to cuddle and carry etc. She comes with her own soother/dummy and bottle which can be used to interact with the doll when in use.

The Luvabella newborn doll was really simply to get out of the box, great news for those with kids who hate waiting especially Christmas morning! She does require 4 x AA batteries which are not included so its worth stocking up before hand. These are placed into a compartment on her back which is opened with a screwdriver. Its really easy to do and so far the batteries seem to be last quite well for us.

Our thoughts? Well we love the Luvabella newborn and she has easily become Evelyn's new favourite baby, in fact she is rarely without her (I have been tasked with babysitting whilst she is at school too!). Her smaller size, soft body and softer more friendly facial features make her such a lovely doll for young children. She is aimed at ages 4+, Evelyn is 5 and its the perfect size for her but I can see her loving this doll for quite some time yet.

The only thing I would say is that Evelyn was quite disappointed that her arms or legs were moveable or posable. They are set within the soft body which means the dolls arms aren't able to lift much and the legs can't be bent to sit her down or anything. Evelyn quite often likes to sit her dolls in the pushchair or next to her but the Luvabella newborn is unable to sit at all so can only really lay down.

The Luvabella newborn doll is priced at £59.99 and is aimed at children aged 4+. The doll comes in two varieties, either a blonde or brown haired doll and is available from all good toy stores including Smyths and The Entertainer.

Do you think your children would love Luvabella newborn too?
