True to Life Newborn Baby Doll


I would like to introduce you to my True to Life Newborn baby doll by Cititoy. She is my favorite baby doll in my doll collection. I bought this baby doll a few years ago for my granddaughter to play with when she comes to visit me. I found it at a large discount department store chain and she was very reasonably priced. This makes it a great choice for allowing a child to play with it.

The doll is all vinyl and is amazingly real in appearance and feel. It came with a lacy diaper cover, blanket and gauze "bandage" at the umbilical site. The blanket ties on with an attached ribbon so it is easy for small hands to manipulate. The only "hair" is at the eyelashes but they are firmly attached, the head hair is a combination of lines molded into the head and paint, also making it safe for toddlers to play with. The arms and legs could come off, with some force, but are too large to present a choking hazard to small children under three years of age; but I wouldn't recommend giving it to an infant who would put it in their mouth due to the painted features. As with all toys, adult supervision is always a good idea.

There are folds and creases on arms, legs, feet, hands face and torso making it extremely realistic in appearance, as well as very life like, set in blue eyes. At about 12 inches in length it is a perfect size for small hands, as well as for making adorable clothes and display. The arms and legs can be rotated so it will sit very pretty to show off a new outfit.

The "easy to crochet baby doll bib" is the perfect size to fit this doll as well as the "knitted doll blanket." I have designed a very simple dress pattern for this doll which will be featured in the near future. Instructions for making a pair of knitted booties is also coming soon. There are other doll clothes patterns on the Doll Making Site which will work well on the True to Life Newborn baby doll. Click on "Costuming Clothes" and look for small baby dolls and patterns for 12 inch to 13 inch baby dolls.

The True to Life Newborn baby doll is still available on some of the online auction sites. I love this doll for its looks; it has a very sweet face and is the perfect size. It's also very versatile for use by children and adults.
