It’s lovely when your kids get to play with the same toys you did. I vividly remember my first Tiny Tears doll and loved pushing her around in my purple little pram. Fast forward 25 years and my girls are doing the same. The Classic Tiny Tears however had a makeover and now models a lovely new outfit featuring specially designed patterned fabric that is unique to Tiny Tears.
First launched in the UK in 1960’s (wow!)) the Tiny Tears range of dolls has been loved by children for generations! She is the UK’s most recognisable doll as Tiny Tears, was the first fully functioning feeding, crying and wetting doll with closing eyes, moveable arms, legs and head.
P1 is an absolute baby fiend and wasted no times in getting her out the box for a cuddle. They both were really impressed that she has long hair! All their other dolls are usually bald so the opportunity to be able to brush her hair was a big bonus – even if it did cause arguments!
You can still feed Tiny Tears from her very own water bottle then put her on her potty to have a wee which the girls thought was hilarious! She also sits up and she will cry real tears, just like a real baby! When it’s nap time, if you lie her down her eyes gently close and hey presto she’s ready for the lad of nod – if only my pair were that easy!
Tiny Tears comes complete with a potty, hairbrush, dummy and a bottle, everything you need to begin your Tiny Tears adventure. I have to admit that we struggled to get her bottle into her mouth on the first few attempts so she got a little wet but you really have to push hard and it will stay in.
She is sturdy and her dress and pants are easy to put on and take off which my girls sometimes struggle with and get frustrated. Her headband usually stays in place with minimal fuss too.
John Adams Classic Tiny Tears doll is available in good toy stores and online from January 2015 and is suitable for ages 3+ and has a very reasonable RRP of £19.99. A great Christmas present for the little one in your life!
