DD9 wants one desperately for Christmas. Can anybody share any info with me about these dolls? The only brand I know of and that was recommended to me was Ashton Drake.

Thanks in advance!

I'm sorry I'm not any help, but after looking these up I want one for Christmas too!! One of them even coos and has a heartbeat. :)

 

Honestly, I hope you are able to get one of these for your dd. I got a baby doll for Christmas when I was 9 years old, and at 45 she is still my most prized possession.

Thank you! I searched, but Ashton Drake seems to be my best option since I do not want to purchase a reborn baby (they’re just TOO real for me lol).

My daughter has been begging for one of these dolls for forever. We finally decided she was old enough and ordered her one for her birthday in November. I just received her this past week. We bought Ella. I opened her up just to peek at her and she is so adorable. I can't wait to see the loom on my daughter's face when she opens it

This makes me so happy to hear! 🤗 Did you order from Ashton Drake? How old is your DD? Mines is 9. She is really good with the dolls and all the accessories she has now that’s one of the reasons I reconsidered. She has NO idea she’s getting it either so I can’t wait for Christmas morning lol. I’ll be ordering Baby Tiffany.

Yes we ordered ours from Ashton Drake. My daughter will be turning 9 as well so I figured she was old enough. All she does is watch you tube videos about these dolls and when we go shopping she only wants to look at clothes for her baby dolls. With kids wanting to grow up so fast these days I'm so glad she is still into little girl things. I'm happy to buy her the doll if it keeps her interested in being my sweet girl a little while longer.

update for me: I received baby Tiffany in the mail a couple weeks ago. I just opened her today to fully check her out and try clothes on her so I know what size to buy. As you can see in the pic, the arms are not fully vinyl like your baby girl’s Ella, only half way. So if Baby has on short sleeved or sleeveless you would be able to see it. I called and I have to send her back so they can send me out a replacement. The customer service lady did apologize about me receiving a defective doll. Hey, it happens, I’m just glad I ordered early and have time to correct the situation. Hopefully the new I receive is perfect. 574EA485-ACD6-46E0-9A7E-119C4D13281A.jpeg

I saw a video yesterday of these dolls that looked the most real that I've ever seen.  It said they cost around $8500!! Yes you read that correctly.  They literally looked like real babies.  They also drank from a bottle and peed.  It was scary how real it looked.

First of all the creep factor would be WAY too high (Look up Uncanny Valley). Second $8500? I love my daughter but sheesh that's insane.
