Great doll….wrong customer expectations I grew up in the 60’s/70’s and had several drink and wet type dolls. I loved them and played with them all the time. It was a thrill to change a “real” diaper because it was actually wet! The dolls were very low tech (no tech actually) with just a hole in the mouth for the water bottle and a small hole in the bottom for the pee. Yes, the water would just come right out. No big deal…it was supposed to. It wasn’t a lot of water, just a smidgen.Remembering how much fun I had with this type of doll, my mom looked high and low for one like it for my now 6-yr-old daughter for Christmas last year and came up empty handed. So glad we found this doll. She is just like what I had as a child. It will be a fantastic present for my daughter this Christmas.I think part of the problem today is customer expectations. This may be the fault of the manufacturer…if they positioned the doll as a potty training tool. The doll is obviously an infant…not old enough to even “walk” yet so clearly would not be time for potty training. The potty seat should be left out of the box. This seems to be the case with most of the other drink and wet dolls I now see on Amazon. Everyone keeps mentioning the potty training aspect. Forget the potty training with this doll…and just let your child enjoy a basic caring-for-baby play time and you should be happy!

Cute, but not for potty training My daughter recieved this as a gift for her 2nd birthday. I had hoped that it would help as a “demo” for potty training, but, like the other reviewers have said, “Annie” has poor bladder control! She is really cute and my little girl loves playing with her, so I’d still recommend it, just make sure Annie is wearing her diaper when you feed her and keep a paper towel close by.

Cute doll, zero help for potty training Because this doll is relatively new, I ordered it without having any reviews to go on. I was planning on using it as a demonstration doll for potty training my 2 year old. However, I was dismayed to find that the doll only wets while she’s drinking – i.e., she can’t hold her pee. Consequently, this doll was not very helpful for potty training, unless you want your child to associate drinking on the toilet with peeing (and not surprisingly, my son asks for drinks while he’s on the toilet now :)).That said, this is a cute doll. The potty is only useful if you want to hold her up – she can’t sit very well on it by herself. Just be aware that if you get it for your child to play with, the doll will pee right away if she gives her liquid.
