Hi there, Dawnie Brown here again putting on my guest review hat for you 🙂 You can also find me over at my personal blog Knees Up Mother Brown
The very lovely people from Totseat kindly sent Zara one of their Oobicoo Orla dolls for her to review and it’s very much become one of her favourite toys 🙂
The adorable, cuddly, soft toy tot Oobicoo is made from gorgeous soft plush and, at 60cm tall, is the perfect size to be an instant baby brother, sister or best friend. Designed to be dressed in hand-me-down-baby clothes, this simple idea encourages the reuse of outgrown baby clothes, providing Oobicoo with an instant wardrobe – all ready for imaginative play!
Oobicoo comes as a girl, Orla, with gorgeous bunches, or a boy, Ollie, with short brown hair. We asked for an Orla doll seeing as I already have a full wardrobe for her consisting of all Zara’s old clothes 🙂
Orla arrives naked in a fabric pod, the great thing is that she gets to wear all Zara’s old wardrobe (I find clothes between 6-12 months fit her best)
We had lots of fun, sorting out a wardrobe for Orla and dressing her in some clothes 🙂 Zara even keeps trying to put nappies on her and sitting her on the potty when she isn’t wearing one lol
Orla has fast become one of Zara’s favourite toys and she tends to join Zara in whatever she is doing 🙂
Manufactured from recycled and recyclable materials, Oobicoo is raising money, with every sale, for the Children’s Immunology Fund (Registered charity number SC041239).
Orla or her friend Ollie can be bought from the Totseat website for £34.99 which I think is a great price, it really is a great toy and we love dressing her up in all Zara’s old clothes 🙂
Now it does say on the label that Orla is suitable for ages 3+ and as you are aware Zara is only 20 months old, the only reason for this age recommendation is because Orla’s hair is long and there is a risk that little fingers could get trapped in it, but as with all recommendations it is up to you to judge whether your child is old enough to play with the toy. We think Zara is, however we only play with her when I’m around to keep an eye on them both 🙂
