Baby Annabell Learns To Walk from Zapf Creation is a gorgeous baby doll who can sit, walk, crawl and babble as well as having a little tantrum!
She comes in a box with pictures showing the different things she can do with the distinctive Zapf Creation Baby Annabell Branding – including the little sheep!
She’s a 16″ doll, clad in a cute sleepsuit and hat combo, a sweet little face and is just the right size for cuddling. She has moveable joints in her arms, legs and head to allow her to move around. You do need a screwdriver to open the battery compartment and add 4 xAA batteries (which are not included). To switch her on slide the button on her side and away you go.
The position you put her in determines how she reacts so for example if you bend her knees and elbows and pop her face down she will crawl and babble which is ever so sweet! She will carry on crawling for 60 seconds before going to sleep which is great for saving battery life.
Or if you straighten her legs stand her with her feet flat on the floor and hold her arms upwards she will walk. Again for 60 seconds or if you press her tummy button she’ll carry on.
As with lots of children she also gets frustrated and has a little tantrum to do this you need to sit her up, straighten her legs and put her arms straight down by her sides. Her bottom needs to be flat on the floor to work. She also wiggles her arms and legs while she has her little tantrum. I actually it was cute rather than annoying though! This continues for 25 seconds and then she’ll sleep.
Since my daughter is obsessed with anything to do with dolls and babies naturally she loved her. I’m sure Baby Annabell is now able to walk and crawl like a pro – she’s had plenty of practice!
She does has a bit of a mechanical sound as she moves however my daughter didn’t notice or mention it so I don’t think it takes anything away from the fun. She would make a lovely Christmas present for a little one who has expressed an interest in a doll as she just has that something extra special for hours of play.
