My Child’s Favorite Toy: Baby Alive Doll (Wets and Giggles)

When mom and contributor, Jazer Basan, was preparing her daughter to be an ate (Tagalog for older sister), she found this doll invaluable.

A crying, feeding and peeing baby doll is perfect for an ate-to-be. Watch it when you change the doll’s nappy, it might pee on you. The sensor is programmed to do so, for fun.

Baby Alive comes with a few accessories and it’s usually sold separately. It's perfect for taking along on long trips. I even improvised a sling for it so my daughter and her "baby" can join Mommy and her baby brother for strolls.

 

A Toy That Needs Some Mommy Creativity
Having a Baby Alive doll can be costly. Diapers are disposable and you need to buy more or improvise. I put party napkins on the doll to save on store-bought nappies. Also, it’s better not to use anything but plain water to “feed” the doll because it causes stains.

 

Invaluable Lessons for an Older Sister
Despite the cost and the improvisations that I’ve had to devise, Baby Alive has taught my daughter some baby care basics and has helped her be a more understanding ate to her baby brother. The doll was also the perfect diversion for her when her little brother was born and needed more of Mom's attention.

 

A Baby Alive doll costs P3,000 at SM Toy Kingdom. Accessories can cost up to P2,000 (includes clothing and 3 spare nappies).

    I would like to add, baby alive is a heavy and bigger than other baby dolls. Consider these if you want to buy accessories of a different brand like a stroller or bed.

    I fell in love with baby alive too. I bought mine 2 years ago from the US and way too cheap than here. That was even before i gave birth. Its just I got too excited for my baby girl to come out and can't wait to play dolls with her. Her baby alive Better Now Baby cost here for Php 2,500 and I got it for just Php 900 ($18), Baby alive Sip and Snooze cost here Php 1,000 got it for just Php 600($13), Baby alive learns to potty cost here for Php 3,500 and got it for just Php 1,150 ($24), Wet and gigles for just Php 900. We were moving, sad to say, need to dispose some of her toys including this bulky baby alive dolls and up for sale. All were never been taken out of the boxes.
