Baby Alive Super snacks Noodles and Pizza Snack Pack

Baby Alive Sippy Cups and Baby Carrier Bundle

Baby Alive Doll Car Seat and 2-Pack Sippy Cup Bundle for 16″ Dolls (Pink)
This pack of 2 sippy cups are made especially for Baby Alive Dolls.  They can be filled with water.  These sippy cups are not magnetic, you must squeeze the water into the baby’s mouth.  These are for pretend play only.  They are not made for your child to drink from.  This bundle also comes with a baby carrier that can hold dolls up to 16 inches.  Children can use the carrier to carry their dolls around or use it as a feeding chair when it is time for their baby to eat.  Great add on gift.

Can Baby Alive eat regular food?

No, You can only use the special food that comes with the baby.  Also, make sure your child knows that the special food is food baby only and not them.  The food is non-toxic however, you do not want your child to eat the food.  Also, it is important not to fill the Baby Alive doll’s sippy cups or bottles with anything besides water.  Filling the cups or bottles with anything else could cause mold or bacteria to grow inside the doll if not cleaned out properly.  Water is the only liquid that should be used.

Is it possible to use regular Play-Doh as food?

I have not personally tried it, but after some research I found that people have tried using Play-Doh and it worked well with the food shapers.  It also went through the doll pretty well and did not get stuck.  Make sure when making the food with the included food shapers, that your child only uses a little at a time.  Placing big chucks inside the dolls mouth could cause it to get stuck and not work properly.

What age group is Baby Alive for?

This depends on the type of Baby Alive you purchase.  For younger girls 1 – 2 I would choose Baby Alive Luv N Snuggle or Baby Alive Snugglin Sarina, they are great first time dolls.   For girls 3-9 I would chose one of the other Baby Alive dolls that have more features such as eating or peeing.

Are Baby Alive dolls made well?

yes, Baby Alive dolls are pretty amazing.  They are a great quality doll and worth the price. If you take care of them, they will last a very long time.
