Baby dolls are dolls that look very much like a real human baby. With special functions such as crying, eating, drinking and potty drinking, children learn at an early age to take responsibility for their baby dolls. The children grow up to be little doll parents. No matter in which role play the children find themselves, the baby doll enriches the child's world of experience. The additional functions can be activated with many dolls completely without batteries. So some dolls cry tears when you press on their upper arm. If the doll is to make sounds while crying or sleeping, batteries are of course needed. The best known baby doll brands are Zapf Creation, Corolle and Götz. There are two well-known product lines from Zapf: Zapf Baby Born and Zapf Baby Annabell. The Zapf My little Baby Born and Zapf My first Baby Annabell dolls are suitable for the very young from the age of two. These dolls are softer so that small children cannot injure themselves while playing.
