The team at Baby Alive® would love to hear all the funny things you have heard your child say to their doll - have they copied something you have said but at not quite the right moment, do they treat them like their own baby and love them gently, whispering lullabies or have they been very bossy and told them all off?
Please share your funny tales on this thread!
In case you don’t know about Baby Alive® - they say “Baby Alive® turns real mummy and daddy moments into a magical world of play. More than adorable dolls, they’re babies that talk, eat, drink, wet, and laugh — just like real babies! Kids become the grown-ups, experiencing first-hand what it’s like to be a parent who is excited, delighted, and surprised by all the many ways they can nurture and play.

Moved house recently. My DP had popped over to the local for a quick drink between unpacking boxes. The next day he left for work at 4am. Text me saying he has lost his wallet. Maybe left it in pub afternoon before. Went over pub and asked the bar staff. They said no. We assumed somebody had pocketed it. He cancelled all his cards! After, i was helping my eldest unpack her stuff. Opened up her desk cupboard and there was the wallet. Must add my eldest is the most trustworthy child ever! I knew the answer but asked if she had taken it. Then in walks my 3 year old (lets say her name is samantha) with her dolly, smiled and said 'it wasn't me, ask baby' looked at her dolly and said 'tell them what you did baby' then in a creepy yet cute voice DD makes her baby say 'it was me it wasn't 'samantha'
My daughter put her Baby on a time out, apparently this didn't work, and I heard her shout "Oooh you wait till your Father gets home!"
To my knowledge I have never ever used that phrase, as my husband is softer than rice pudding when it comes to this girl lol. The same day I had to wipe purple pen off of 'Baby' because she had been eating grapes. Sigh.
A couple of weeks ago I found my little boy (2) walking round with his doll shoved up his t-shirt. Apparently his brothers had told him this is how you grow babies. He said look mammy my tummy like yours. I'm not pregnant!
When my son was little I wanted to encourage his nurturing side so I put a doll in a pram, made cooing sounds at the pretend baby and suggested he and his friend took the baby for a walk round the garden. Shortly I heard laughter and looked out the window to see them charging the pram at the wall to watch the doll fly through the air then say 'sorry baby - cutchie coo', tuck it up and repeat!
My son decided to pierce his cousin's baby Annabelle ears with drawing pins. His classic comment to the doll was "Don't start, just don't start crying else I'll never take you to Clare's Accessories again". That poor doll and her 'designer' earrings...
My little one was tucking dolly in to bed, and whispering, now if you stay in bed all night and don't call for mummy, you will get a golden sticker in the morning -- ermm where has she heard that from ?
I accidentally dropped my DS's doll on the floor. He said mummy that was not very kind and I am not laughing. He also enjoys telling people we have left his baby sister Fifi (the doll) at home, not sure if people judge the name or the abandonment of my baby more.
My daughter was never really into dolls and was very neglectful whenever she did play with them, but she did take to a rag doll named Emily, who she took on a day out not long after she got her and accidentally left her behind in a railway station. She was distraught and I promised faithfully to buy her another one as luckily they were still available in the shops. "New Emily" was duly obtained but was never quite forgiven for not being the original and was frequently told in no uncertain terms that she was very lucky to be here and wouldn't have been if "Old Emily" hadn't decided to stay and help the train driver.
My husband has a thing for using my dry shampoo and leaving the empty tin still in the cupboard, so I obviously tell him off. I caught my lg admiring her dolls hair one morning, "oh princess your hair is so lovely, I hope you haven't been using mammys shampoo or she'll cut your hair off!"
