Manhattan Toy Baby Stella Sweet Sounds Doll
(Manhattan Toy $45) Platinum Award
All soft and huggable, Baby Stella makes a great first doll. This is a new twist with some relatively quiet sounds. We think you do not need a talking doll for toddlers, but this one doesn’t talk much. Squeeze her hand and she simply says Mama or giggles; or put her pacifier near her mouth and she makes a sucking sound. This year's Sweet Sounds Doll comes in a polka dotted pale pink and green dress and her pacifier matches. With stitched features and a tuft of brown fabric hair, she is just the tight size armful for toddlers. 12 months and up.
Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2015.
