The best Baby Alive dolls

History of Baby Alive Dolls

Baby Alive Dolls first came onto the market in 1973.  The Kenner company produced them. 

The dolls came with little packets of food that needed to be mixed with water.  Once the food was mixed with water, you could feed that doll with the included spoon. 

Once you spoon-fed the doll, you must use a lever on the back to make the mouth go up and down and eat the food.  After the doll ate the food, the food would go through the doll and come out into the diaper.  

In 1992 the first talking Baby Alive Doll came out. The doll automatically ate the food; no more lever was on its back.  The doll didn’t sell very well as it made a lot of gear noises, and the doll had an adult female-sounding voice. 

In 1995 a new version of the Baby Alive doll was released.  This doll did not talk and came with a potty, snacks, and juice boxes.

After Hasbro took over the Kenner company, the Baby Alive Doll was re-released in 2006.   A variety of Baby Alive Dolls came out.  They produced ones that talked and had a baby voice; they have ones that poop, eat, crawl, and even some to snuggle with.

Can you purchase additional products for your Baby Alive Doll?

Yes! So many extra accessories can be purchased for your child’s Baby Alive doll. You can purchase extra diapers, snack packs, clothes, and bottles. You can also purchase preemie-sized diapers.  Check out some accessories listed below.

Baby Alive Diapers Pack

Pack of 32 extra diapers for Baby Alive Dolls

This refill pack comes with 32 diapers for any size Baby Alive Doll that pees or poops. I believe purchasing extra diapers is necessary if you purchase a Baby Alive that pees. Depending on how often your child plays with the doll, your child will go through diapers rather quickly.  You can reuse the diapers for the dolls that poop.

Baby Alive Clothes Packs

Children love dressing their baby dolls. Luckily, plenty of clothes are available online, and in retail stores, so your child will never get bored of their doll wearing the same clothes.  There are many outfits to choose from. This adorable set features a cute tutu skirt and white shirt with a heart and comes with a pacifier. This outfit fits most Baby Alive dolls between 12-14 inches.

Baby Alive Super Snacks Noodles and Pizza Snack Pack

Baby Alive doll refill food packet, noodles and pizza

Children often lose the food that comes with the doll or wants to try new foods.  This snack pack comes with three containers of reusable food and two cutters. Your child will have fun rolling, shaping, and feeding their doll the yummy pretend pizza and noodles.

Baby Alive Just Play Softy Carrier

adorable pink soft baby carrier that can be used to carry Baby Alive dolls.

It has never been easier for your child to bring their Baby Alive doll everywhere with this adorable baby carrier. It features a soft bunny-themed fabric with adjustable straps to fit your child comfortably. This soft carrier comes with a hat, bib, and pacifier. This product is recommended for children ages three and up and is unsuitable for real babies.

Can Baby Alive dolls eat regular food?

No, You can only use the special food that comes with the baby.  Also, ensure your child knows that the special food is only Baby Alive only and not for 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 Play-Doh as food?

I have not personally tried it, but after some research, I found that people have tried using Play-Doh, which worked well with the food shapers.  It also went through the doll pretty well and did not get stuck. 

Ensure your child only uses a little at a time when making the food with the included shapers.  Placing big chucks inside the doll’s mouth could cause it to get stuck and not work properly.

What age group will enjoy playing with Baby Alive Dolls?

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 choose one of the other Baby Alive dolls with more features, such as eating or peeing.

Are Baby Alive dolls made well?

Yes, Baby Alive dolls are pretty amazing. They are a great product.  They are great quality dolls and worth the price. If you care for them, they will last a very long time.

Can Baby Alive dolls be cleaned easily?

Most of the Baby Alive dolls can be cleaned easily.  They are made from plastic that can be wiped down with soap and water.  The Luv N Snuggle Baby Alive Doll has a soft body that makes it a little harder to clean.
