Holly plays with dolls a lot at nursery but has never had one of her own so, when we were contacted to review an Emmi baby doll from Tesco Direct, we jumped on the opportunity, especially so because this Emmi doll is a potty training baby doll. Holly is just beginning to learn about using the toilet and potty at key times of the day so I thought that the role play with a doll might help move things along.
Emmi is a very realistic doll with lots of ruffles of skin and shapes and bulges just where you would expect on a real baby! She is probably a little smaller than most potty training toddlers but I don't think Holly notices. Holly absolutely loves teaching her new doll how to use the potty. Emmi will drink water from her re-fillable bottle and, when placed on the potty, a little button is depressed on her back which causes her to wee!
Emmi also comes with a few other accessories such as a baby grow, hat, dummy and even two doll-sized disposable nappies (just so that you can really try and encourage that move from nappies to potty!) Holly finds it reasonably easy to take her doll's clothes on and off. Emmi is about 38cm tall and is the perfect size for using in our toy prams and pushchairs. She is a solid, firm doll but isn't too heavy or chunky. In fact, I think she is absolutely perfect for both my 5 year old and 2.5 year old – nothing too fancy but all the features and characteristics that most little girls look for in a baby doll.
I haven't yet seen any progress on our own potty training yet though!!!
The Emmi Potty Train Baby Doll costs around £11 from Tesco Direct.
