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. Using accessories based on each baby's theme, they can feed her an actual drink, change her nappy when she really wets, care for her when she is poorly and much more. Baby Alive encourages real moments of connection and discovery that bring alive the love inside of every child.”

Add your comment and you will be entered into a prize draw where one person will win a £300 Toys R Us voucher.

Thanks and good luck

Mostly just the fact DD calls her baby Annabelle 'Gary'.

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'

DD (3) was in her room playing with dolls, and I came in and asked how she was doing, and she pointed at one and said dramatically "THIS ONE is driving me crazy! Is it wine o clock yet?"

Mortified. 🙈

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 potty training my son, he put his little sister's doll on potty saying she needs wee too

My DS is 12 now but when he was little I heard him whisper to my old doll he was playing with "it's ok you won't be dead now"


Luckily he is now slightly more normal.

I wish you would poo real poos!

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 niece is constantly telling her baby doll to do her homework or she will be kept in school until she is old. i think she must have overheard me sayig that to my daughter!

Rosa Wed 20-Sep-17 05:53:44

If you don't drink all of your water up you will get mouldy insides and poo black bits and I am not changing nappies with black bits in them.

"We don't need to listen to this nonsense do we?" When being told off hmm

Make sure you eat all your dinner or they'll be no pudding!!

Emmap12 Wed 20-Sep-17 06:53:32

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...

maryandbuzz1 Wed 20-Sep-17 07:10:35

My son didn't have a doll but a flat duck called 'big mate'. On the birth of my nephew I heard him explaining to big mate that Marie's baby had hatched!

peggsknifeprty Wed 20-Sep-17 07:19:53

Screaming "arrgghhh dolly is flying"then throwing it into the air!

jacqui5366 Wed 20-Sep-17 07:21:51

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 ?

behave or you will not get any tea

FuzzyPenguin Wed 20-Sep-17 07:30:22

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.

feefeegabor Wed 20-Sep-17 07:41:56

My daughter is always very loving and kind to her toys. Except Amelia. Amelia is a "very naughty doll" and spends most of her time sitting on the naughty step to "Think about what you've done".

jandoc Wed 20-Sep-17 08:44:54

my brother always jokes that he is going to bring a boy doll over for one of the girl dolls and DD says to her doll that she won't let it happen until she is very very very old

daydreambeliever21 Wed 20-Sep-17 08:49:24

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!"

SSCRASE123 Wed 20-Sep-17 08:59:33

My smallest was telling hers all about Santa and then proceeded to tell her that as dolly had been naughty he wouldn't be visiting her.
