Of course Teddy is not the only sibling who refuses to sit still. My girls are always looking for a willing customer to attempt a pretty braid, do a fancy fishtail plait or try out a new look but it turns out that it’s a lot more fun to be the stylist than the bored customer who is not allowed to move or cries with every stroke of the brush. Keeping all of my budding hairdressers and make-up artists happy has turned out to be a breeze with this cute find from Little Bubba:

Measuring a generous 27cm tall this life-size My Big Sister ‘Styling Head’ (Ages 3+, 10,6″) is the ideal client for any hairdressing or beauty bar, she is always happy to receive a fresh makeover, doesn’t wiggle and never complains when things look a little wonky. With her long blonde hair, big blue eyes and perfect skin this lovely model is a clean canvas waiting for a dedicated artist to give her a brand new look, you can change her style as many times as you like!

To help you set up your own salon the Styling Head comes with a whole heap of beauty and hair accessories: 6 royal crown hair clips, a heart-shaped brush, a pink hair comb, four rollers for gorgeous curls, face stickers and a make-up palette with lip, cheek and eye make-up in different shades.  The set contains everything to get you started, just use your imagination.

Miss 11 is our resident hairdresser and miss 9 is our wannabe make-up artist, so together they have a ball getting this blonde model looking magazine worthy. In our house it is most definitely the older girls who adore this styling kit most, the younger girls like it too but the older two are a bit better at the delicate application of make-up and have patience for the step-by-step process of tricky hair styles. A quick rinse with a baby wipe removes all the makeup, there are no stains and it washes off easily from hands and clothing too.

One small note: While the box does list all the make-up ingredients on the bottom, it does clearly say ‘for external application on dolls only’ so I am not sure how suitable it is for human skin. I have specifically instructed my girls not to apply it to their own skin but I can imagine some children will be keen to give themselves a makeover which may cause an allergic reaction.

Over the past few months Ted has fast turned into a cheeky, independent toddler, which means his sisters can no longer treat him like their little baby. He won’t sit still, he doesn’t want to be dressed up and most definitely doesn’t want anyone to help him at mealtime. Thankfully the girls are very content with the closest thing to a real baby brother or sister: Meet Little Bubba by HeadStart!

We all know that newborns come in different sizes and so does Little Bubba: Whether you prefer a tiny 38cm baby girl, a cute 40cm doll or a huggable 42cm bundle of joy, there is a wonderful baby waiting for you. Each size has its own unique features, outfit and special skills making every new addition special in its own way. Young parents-to-be are guaranteed to instantly fall in love with Little Bubba’s lifelike appearance, realistic sounds and interactive functions.

Let’s start with the smallest of the girls, a cuddly little lady in a sweet pink jumpsuit. During her awake time My Interactive Baby (Ages, 3+, 15″) likes to suck her dummy or pretend to drink from her bottle (she even moves her mouth and makes drinking sounds) and when you tickle her soft tummy she giggles. Like all babies she does cry sometimes but none of that matters when you hear her say ‘mama’. Come nap time she will close her eyes and peacefully suck her thumb, isn’t she a perfect baby?

Up next is My Real Baby ‘Magic Potty’ (Ages 3+, 16″), a summer baby with a bird print onesie and a matching hat. Unlike her softer, smaller buddy this quiet, content baby has a plastic tummy with arms and legs than can be posed, quite important when it comes to potty time! Once your baby has eaten her meal and finished her bottle of water she can actually use the potty and do a wee, after all you are never too young to start toilet training. With a push of the button the interactive potty will be rinsed and you can put your baby’s nappy back on, time to lay her down so she can close her eyes and have a snooze.

Last but not least, say hello to My Ultimate Interactive Baby (Ages 3+, 16,5″). With 12 impressive functions this delightful baby is sure to delight any new mum or dad. Gurgles and giggles, sad sobs, sweet snores, thirsty drinking or a first ‘mama’, this baby is full of interesting sounds. She can move her mouth to drink from her bottle and wee on the pink potty afterwards. You can also move her arms and legs so can she can sit on your lap, use a high chair or sit in pram just like a real baby (don’t forget to attach her dummy chain so she doesn’t lose her pacifier). We love it when she blinks her beautiful blue eyes, we think she is adorable!

To make the parenting experience extra realistic all Little Bubba dolls come with a range of must-have baby accessories like a dummy, a refillable drink bottle, a baby potty, a nappy, a dummy chain, a beanie, socks and even mealtime utensils (accessories vary per design). Go on, pick your favourite girl, decide on a name and get to know your new family member!
