When I was at Toy Fair this year I stopped by the Adora showroom to check out all the new dolls in their various lines – from their redesigned 18″ dolls and fashions to the 13″ Playtime Babies and their baby doll play accessories. Recently Adora sent us the new Playtime Baby Flower to review and she has already captured our hearts. Their Playtime Baby dolls are very huggable – as in once you pick one up, it is very hard to put her down! We named this little 13″ cutie, Cara, and she has become Penelope’s new BFF.

Playtime Baby Flower comes dressed in a pink cotton tee, floral pinwale corduroy jumper and her headband. You can see from the photo that her legs ares soft and cuddly until just above the ankle – her arms are the same way. She is also scented – it is a baby powder scent which is actually quite nice. When you lay her down, her eyes close and her lashes are long.
Shhhh… don’t wake the sleeping baby! Cara is sound asleep – in dreamland while she sucks on her thumb.
Nap time is over and Cara is ready to play with her zebra pal! The Adora Playtime Baby dolls are 13″ making them just a bit smaller than Bitty Baby, however, they can wear most of Bitty’s clothes still (they are just a little roomy). At $25-30 each, they Playtime Baby dolls are a perfect way to start a love of dolls – an ideal gift for little girls ages 12 months and up.
The Adora Playtime Baby line was the winner of 2012 DOTY (DOLL of the Year), Industry’s Choice Award and 2012 The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, too.
