APPLY TO REVIEW: Baby Alive – The Doll That Grows from Newborn to Child

The world of pretend play just got a whole lot more magical thanks to the brand new Baby Alive Baby Grows Up Merry Meadow and Baby Alive Baby Grows Up Happy Hope.

What makes these Baby Alive dolls so special? They actually grow up. From an itty bitty squishy newborn to a cheeky little girl.


We know, right???!! And that’s just the beginning of their surprises. 

Both are talking, interactive and realistic baby dolls but these ones are more special than any toy we’ve ever come across. They also aren’t yet released in Australia or New Zealand so this is your sneak peek into what’s coming to a toy shelf near you soon!

Baby Alive Baby Grows Up

Baby Alive dolls are known for their interactive lifelike features. Some can go to the potty, some can crawl, some can talk.

But Baby Alive Baby Grows Up is the first doll ever to actually GROW UP before your eyes (plus do heaps of other cool things too). And watching her grow is all sorts of magic, especially for your child.  After all, it’s not every day they get a Baby Alive that grows just like them!

It’s also not every day that an opportunity to be the first to own one of these dolls comes knocking at your door. But, knock, knock, it’s here!

  • What about her hair colour? Remove her little hat to reveal her pretty hair colour.
  • When will she kick out of her swaddle? Eventually, she outgrows the blankie!
  • What will her first word be? Mamma? Dadda? Bottle?
  • When will she sit up and start to grow? So many magical milestones to watch!
  • What surprise accessories will you find? Both surprise dolls come with a swaddle blanket, bottle, food pouch, bib, hat, brush, skirt and shoes to unwrap.

It sounds impossible – how can a toy actually grow? But, hey, she really does. Baby Alive Baby Grows Up transforms from newborn to baby to big girl. She grows a full 10 cm, outgrowing her swaddle and growing into her skirt and shoes.

And it’s not just her body that grows – her hair does too.

Below are just some of the ways your little one can interact with the growing doll.

  • Help her grow by rocking and bottle feeding her.
  • When she outgrows her blanket, help her to learn to sit up.
  • Teach her to talk (there are 75 phrases and sounds to discover).
  • Feed her the first foods – she even makes yummy noises when she eats from her food pouch.
  • Hold her hands to teach her to stand up.
  • Dress her in her big girl skirt and shoes.
  • Brush her hair as it grows.
  • Reset to play again.

[mc_block_title custom_title=”A beautiful bond”]

There are a lot of great features about Baby Alive Baby Grows Up that will appeal to kids. But what we especially love as mothers is being able to watch our children interact with this doll.

It’s pure magic to see their eyes light up when they discover which surprise doll they got, to hear their nurturing side as they shush their newborn to sleep, to witness them take on the responsibility of caring for a baby, and best of all to watch a friendship grow.

This type of engagement is play at its purest form. And it really is beautiful to watch.
