About this deal

But here I am sitting on my couch typing up a surprise review, which, if you'd asked me a year ago, is not something I ever thought would happen again. This product for sale is the Baby Born Surprise Mini Babies Mystery Pack Series 1 with Cot and Swaddle. I didn't expect Gina to be comparable to the Baby Born kids, especially because of the underwhelming representation of the dolls on the box. I don't think any of them will replace my favorite 2000s Barbie babies, but its nice to have cheaper and easier to find options.

But changing diapers is a big part of baby play for kids, and so I agree that Gina's molded diaper comes up short!It's nice to know that some of these surprise toys have thought and care put into them to make them good toys instead of just relying on the surprise factor to sell them. Furthermore, I had a really hard time getting all of the water out of the baby once I'd finished testing the bottle. Their highly-maneuverable heads are really expressive, and I like that they don't have "bottle mouth" like Apollo. It might not be fair to compare Marigold to the other surprise babies, but it's an interesting way of measuring the value of a surprise theme on the current market.

My favorites were the Baby Born and Skipper's Babysitter baby in great part because they're playscale and I'm not sure a baby doll that small can be a standalone collection or toy for very long unless it's the baby of other dolls in the toybox. Little ones will be giddy to find out whether they've got twins or even triplets tucked inside the cuddly swaddle! I think it's very interesting how, with surprise toys, it's not just the toy itself that is bought, but also the feeling of opening it and finding a surprise.

These 6cm dolls come in a unique swaddle, have their own stackable beds and have movable arms and legs. I'm a little worried that surprise themes are overused these days, but I can totally see why people put value on the mystery element. Granted I used acetone which may have been too strong (

In any case, I've reviewed a few different surprise babies over the years, including Zapf Jolly Dollies and the unrivaled Cabbage Patch Babyland Mini Kids--which are still probably my favorite surprise mini of all. I didn't really care if they matched each other--or even if they were a perfect match for their parents, but it was such a fun addition to any doll game.My complaint about Gina is they molded her in a way that it looks like she needs a diaper change but you can't do anything because its painted on. It used to be relatively hard to find a surprise-themed toy, other than the smaller (inexpensive) blind box assortments.

The most successful brand play concept of Zapf Creation AG is processes constantly and is enhanced by new, lovingly designed accessories. That feature was a surprise to me, but I don't think it counts as one of the official ten surprises. Includes two or three babies with swaddle wrap and one bed, birth certificate and overview of the babies.One of my critiques of the Li'l Woodzeez crib sets was that they didn't come with a cozy blanket for the baby animals to snuggle under. I don't collect baby dolls in general anymore, so I'm not sure why babies are so appealing to me in a small scale--and especially with a surprise theme. I'm not sure how to count the bottle and the diaper in terms of our surprise tally, but I guess since both of them were in the same bag, they count as one surprise: the presence of a bottle and diaper. More than 24 million BABY born dolls have been sold all over the world since the market launch in 1991.
