Where can I get a nice baby doll for dd?

I want to get dd (almost three) a nice baby doll as a gift from the new baby when it arrives in a few weeks time. I have seen the Baby Born and Baby Annabell ones but tbh find them a tad grotesque what with all the life-like functions etc. I don't really want one with a hole in its mouth for a dummy and/or bottle as I think the hole spoils the overall look and I want it to be bathable (so the battery operated ones are out).
I have trawled the internet but can't seem to see anything suitable ie a simple, hard-bodied doll with moveable arms, legs etc in a nice outfit. Any ideas?

Dd has *My **First *baby Annabell which is a tad smaller than the normal one and doesnt do any of the gross things or make any noise. It is also a bit lighter to carry about ................she loves it

We got one for dd1 complete with bath and bath things from John lewis for £12, although its just a plastic dolly with bendy limbs.

My First Baby Annabel is reduced to £12 in ELC right now.

Also ELC's own make baby doll (no functions like Baby Annabel, etc. but a bigger doll that the above - 46cm I think) is also reduced to £12, and comes with a free accessory pack (worth £10).

Neither of these are bathable though.

Just realised you want it bathable. There is a brand called Corolle (French I think) which includes bathable ones and they are rather sweet here and here . Some are available here for example prices .

We have the Little Lucy from elc which dd2 loves (she is 4) However she is soft bodied so not suitable for bathing. sorry

Thanks for the suggestions everybody - I may have to dispense with the bathable idea as I am quite taken with both the first baby Annabell and ELC's little Lucy at the moment. I also like the Corolle Tidoo doll which Urchin have on their website but which they tell me is now discontinued - I'll try the Children's Salon for that now.
