The Delightful La Newborn Dolls from JC Toys Will Make You Smile


Our 5 year old daughter has several baby dolls and she plays with them all.  However, none of them has made her smile as wide as this La Newborn 14" Real Boy Doll from JC Toys' Berenguer Boutique Collection.  The magic behind this doll is its sweet facial expression that is characteristic of a happy (and perhaps a little bit curious) baby.  This doll not only makes "expressions" with his face, but also with the tilt of his head and the gestures of his hands created by the Berenguer doll designers.

Suitable for ages 2 and up, this all-vinyl doll would be perfect for a young doll collector.  The La Newborn dolls are currently available in 14", 15", and 17" sizes and range in price from approximately $20.99 to $69.99.  This particular doll that my daughter chose retails for $59.99.

Each La Newborn doll has a different facial expression.  Some of the newer dolls from this collection that are just becoming available this summer have some of the most darling smiles I have ever seen on a doll.


I have always found babies' feet to be irresistible and am amazed at how realistic the doll designers have made this vinyl doll's hands and feet.  If you click on the photos to enlarge them, you will see the details right down to the smallest creases.


One thing you should know is that the "Real Baby" boy and girl dolls by JC Toys are anatomically correct.  This was not a concern to me because our daughter has a twin brother and she has seen his boy parts here and there throughout their 5 years together.  I would not think twice to allow her to see a real life baby boy without his diaper on, so this doll is perfectly appropriate in my opinion.  Of course, you will need to consider each parent's feelings individually when selecting a "Real Baby" doll for a gift.


To add to its realism, this doll is jointed at the neck, shoulders, and hips, so he can turn his head, reach for you, and sit up.  The only thing that could be improved is the fleece footed overalls.  It is adorable and fits the doll perfectly, but the fabric does not stretch, so it was difficult for my daughter to both take the overalls off and to put them back on.  She was perfectly happy to leave them off and to put a preemie size diaper on her doll instead.
