Chad Valley Babies To Love Doll & Potty Set Review + COMPETITION


Now that Noah is almost 3, we've started to think about getting him potty trained - it's something I tend not to push as I learned with his older brother Tyne that children will do these things in their own time and despite our best efforts to train him earlier, Tyne eventually ended up training at 3 and a half.

Noah has been showing an interest in starting a little earlier though, asking to use the toilet like this older brother and so we've decided to give it a go - so when we were sent the Chad Valley Babies To Love Interactive Doll & Potty Set the timing was perfect!

It gave us something to start off the conversation and use as a talking point with Noah, chatting about the baby dolls potty and how she uses it - so far he's shown a real interest! The potty plays a little tune when the baby "Goes" and lights up too which Noah really loves - and his favourite part is that when he lifts her off, the potty flushes!




The doll comes with some other accessories including a bottle, a cup, a change of clothes and nappy, and a little rattle too.

Noah loves getting the baby changed into her different outfits, putting her to bed by reading her a bedtime story and giving her a goodnight kiss, and then giving her bottle when she wakes up.

He takes his baby everywhere with him since she arrived, it's lovely to see how well he looks after her!

This set is a perfect first doll for little ones, and at only £17.99 for the set I think its great value for money too.

The doll is a perfect size for toddlers to hold and cuddle, and the accessories are all well made and durable too.
