Little Mommy Baby So New™ Doll Review & Video (Win a Little Mommy doll!)

Fisher-Price Little Mommy doll

Little Mommy - Baby So New™ baby dollNo matter how much parents try to sway their little girls or boys to play with toys that are made for either gender, I have found that my little girl and my son always gravitate toward toys that were specifically made for their gender.  My son loves outdoor toys and my daughter likes dolls and kitchen toys.

My daughter first saw Little Mommy dolls advertised on TV.  I think she saw the one that poops in the potty that she comes with.  She though she needed that doll the same day because that doll needed a mommy (my daughter) to teach her how to go poopoo in the potty. I knew that another Little Mommy doll was on its way to our doorstep so I redirected her attention to a nice game of ‘who can put the most make up on your baby dolls’.’

My daughter was beside herself when her Baby So New™ Little Mommy doll we received to review, arrived at our door.  She set up a bed for her, tried to feed her celery (because that’s what babies like to eat right?), and then decided that Baby So New™ could use a nap so she fed her with the bottle that came with her and sang to her to ‘put her to sleep’.

These lovable dolls can be part of capturing memorable moments, sharing important milestones, and most of all, giggling with all of your own LittleMommies.

Little Mommy doll - My Little Scrapbook

Little Mommy™ Scrapbook pagesYour little girl will have a great time with the Little Mommy printables on the Mattel Little Mommy website.  Printables include a “Little Mommy – My Little Scrapbook”, a Birth Certificate for your child’s Little Mommy doll, and Flash Cards.  In the photograph to the right, Madelyn is filling out one of the Scrapbook pages.

Here is a quick video of my daughter singing to her Baby So New™ Little Mommy doll:

Fisher Price Little People® celebrate 50th birthday!

Littlepeople50th A reminder of years passed.  I was reminded exactly how much Little People® play sets have evolved in the last 50 years when I received two commemorative play sets a couple of weeks ago. 

As I opened the school house playset, I had flashbacks of the Little People® I played with 30+ years ago.  I remembered the wooden peg people and the lunchbox schoolhouse I played with (I thought it was a lunchbox) and who doesn't remember the famous Little People® farm playset?

50 years ago, Little People® were chunky, colorful, wooden peg figures that kids brought to life with their imaginations.  Now, Little People® help extend youngsters imaginations with their many playsets, people, and accessories.

Little People® friends celebrate five decades as one of the longest lasting and most beloved toy brands in the world!

Get in on the Little People® 50th Birthday Party fun!  Visit the Fisher Price Little People® website to see all of the commemorative playsets available, learn about the live traveling musical, and other exciting things planned!

Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Bounce & Spin Pony

Madelyn had the first Fisher-Price bounce and play toy, it was a zebra.  It Bounce and Learn Pony
stayed in our living room for over a year and half and it was so cute because she would randomly get on and bounce and spin. 

Now, we have the Bounce and Learn Pony in our living room and it's a totally different experience and she appears to be having just as much if not more fun with it.

The Bounce and Learn Pony is an active learning toy that interacts with the television.  The Pony uses a wireless device to connect with the TV delivering animated content.  Madelyn interacts with the toy and TV by bouncing up and down and spinning a roller on the handle bars.  I can choose the level of play and audio options (really handy!) so as she has learned skills it is easy to move up to the next level.  There was a little bit of a learning curve so you will want to stay in the room the first few times your toddler gets on the Bounce and Learn Pony.  After that, you should be able to run into the kitchen to fix dinner or vacum a couploe of rooms.  The Bounce and Learn Pony doesn't have to be connected with the TV to be interactive.   It will still play songs and sound effects from the pony itself.
