Why Little Girls Love Baby Wanna Walk
Hold her hands, then let her go and she walks all by herself! Plus she talks. This alone will be enough to make thousands of little girls long to own her! But let’s take a closer look at what makes Baby Wanna Walk so popular.
First, it’s great that she comes in not just two but three forms. You can get Baby Wanna Walk ‘African American’, Blonde or Brunette. The Brunette has darker skin than the Blonde and could pass for an Asian doll. It’s rare to have dolls come in more than two ethnic colourings so we’re very happy about this. It’s always nice to see more black dolls in the shops too.
Her big selling point is her ability to walk by herself. Most dolls have trouble standing up by themselves let alone walking! With the Baby Wanna Walk, your little girl can encourage the doll to take her first baby steps to Mummy – just like a real baby.
Her legs are powered so that she toddles over flat surfaces with a wobbling walk that looks a lot like a real-life first-time walker. She’s very convincing!
She also talks, with over 40 phrases and sound effects. Some of these are very sweet indeed: e.g. she will say “I love you, Mommy!” She often asks to walk or asks for ‘Mommy’ to hold her hand. Kids love this! She looks cute too.
Baby Alive is a high quality brand and this is a well made doll that will handle some fairly rough play from small children. She’ll be a real hit in any little girl’s playroom.
Nothing’s perfect – but the Baby Wanna Walk doll comes close in our opinion!
There are one or two things you can’t do with this doll. She’s solid-bodied of course, or she wouldn’t be able to stand up by herself – that means she might not be a favorite for bedtime cuddles. She’s also not suitable for bath play – like most toys with batteries, she must not be immersed in water.
Also, she has trouble walking on uneven surfaces like grass or a very deep pile carpet. She prefers short pile carpets or solid floors. But everything has its limitations and most children will understand that. She’s even more like a real toddler if she falls over sometimes!
Baby Wanna Walk Review Summary
The Baby Wanna Walk doll from Baby Alive is a lovely doll that any little girl will be thrilled to bits to own. We give it 5 stars.
