PRODUCT: John Adams Tender Tiny Tears with Baby Monitor (www.johnadams.co.uk)John Adams Tiny Tears

DESCRIPTION: An electronic soft bodied doll (38cm) with sounds and interactive baby mood monitor which indicates when baby is happy, tearful, bored, hungry or tired. Doll requires 3 x AA batteries (nor included), monitor requires 3 x LR44 batteries (included). Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The Tender Tiny Tears is a wonderfully cute little interactive doll that will particularly appeal to little girls, and is perfect for some mummy-baby role play.

The doll has lovely dainty features and is dressed in a pretty pink fleecy sleepsuit with matching removable hat. She is a great size for little hands to hold and hug, with a soft cuddly body and plastic head, hands and feet.

The wonderful feature of this doll is that it has several interactive functions, and comes with a small plastic baby bottle and a great little electronic mood monitor which lights up when baby needs something!

The monitor is pink-fronted, with five different action symbols on the front. The large symbol (i.e. a smiling baby face) lights up when baby is happy, while four smaller display symbols light up to indicate when baby is not happy and which action she requires. If baby is bored (indicated by the sad baby face symbol), your child can play with her and tickle her tummy to make her giggle; if baby is hungry (feeding bottle symbol), placing the baby bottle into the doll's mouth will make her 'slurp' and 'burp'!; if baby is tired (sleeping baby symbol), your child can put her to bed and hear her yawn and snooze (the doll's eyes also close when she is laid flat!); finally, if baby is in need of some love (heart symbol), your child can cuddle and comfort her to make her babble. In addition, the doll has further built-in functions on both her hands which, when pressed, make her laugh, cry or say 'Mama'!

The monitor comes with batteries already inserted, although the doll itself will require additional batteries to be fitted prior to use. This is done via a compartment on the back of the doll, accessed through a Velcro fastening in the sleepsuit (a screwdriver will be required for this). Both the monitor and doll come with a handy auto shut-down function to save battery life if either is not played with for more than a few minutes. In addition, a detailed instructions sheet is provided which also includes a useful troubleshooting section.

We think this is a really appealing little doll which is fun, interactive and great for teaching cause and effect, as well as encouraging communication, interaction and plenty of imaginative play.

BAD POINTS: The doll is quite expensive and does not come with all the batteries included.

PRICE: Approx. £34.99
