Every Christmas there is always that one toy that is at the top of every child’s christmas list. That toy that sells out everywhere and parents are desperately trying to get their hands on in time for the big day. This year, that toy looks to be the Luvabella doll.
Last month me and Evie were lucky enough to be sent a Luvabella doll to review as part of a Mumsnet campaign. You can see the video that we took part in here…
Who is Luvabella?
Luvabella is a lifelike doll that learns new things as she grows. She’s made with advanced robotics to make her as lifelike as possible. Her facial expressions are really impressive, I have to admit. She even sucks on her dummy and bottle!
What makes Luvabella so wonderful is her ability to change over time. With play new words and sounds develop. With Luvabella children are always discovering new ways to care and play with their baby.
What’s in the box?
Luvabella comes wearing the outfit below (hair bow included) and also includes a bottle (not pictured), lamb toy, spoon and dummy. All of which are interactive and Luvabella will respond to.
Also in the box are full instructions detailing everything that Luvabella can do. Please note that Luvabella does not come with batteries, you’ll need to purchase 4 x C cell batteries.
What makes Luvabella different?
Luvabella isn’t the first interactive doll on the market, but the robotics and her level of interaction really set her apart from other dolls in my opinion. Her ability to learn is amazing and what starts out as just baby babble over time changes into over a 100 word vocabulary. Luvabella will even play games, such as peek a boo and she even knows when you are tickling her.
So is Luvabella worth the money?
As with any toy, kids are always going to get bored eventually, and I don’t think that Luvabella is any different. I do however think that children will be entertained by this for a lot longer than any other doll out there. Simply because she does so much more than other dolls and keeps children engaged with games and the fact that they can teach her new things. We’ve had Luvabella for a good few weeks now and Evie is still very much enjoying playing with her. At £100, this isn’t a cheap doll but I don’t think that it’s excessive considering what you’re getting.
As I mentioned in the above video, Luvabella is a great way for little ones to learn to be kind and care for others. They really feel like they are playing with a real life baby. Luvabella is a great idea if maybe you’re child is expecting a new siblings soon. I think it’s a great way to introduce them to the idea of caring for a new baby.
So overall, I would say yes, Luvabella is worth the £100 price tag.
Thank you for reading.
