As little as she is miss Hattie has proven to be a very interested big sister, who doesn’t miss a thing when it comes to her new baby brother. She is very keen to help out with changing and dressing him and watches closely when the nurses or doctors check out our little Ted. If you don’t keep an eye on her at all times she’ll even try herself to check his ears and rub some cream onto his face! To reward her caring attitude (and to give Ted a break from all that attention every now and then) we felt this clever VTech creation would make the perfect 2nd birthday gift:

Isn’t she adorable? Young boys and girls will instantly fall in love with Little Love Cuddle & Care (RRP $59.95, ages 2+), a darling girl doll who is in desperate need of some tender love and care. Time to get out your medicine bag and make her feel better…

Little Love encourages children to use their imagination, listen carefully and respond to her needs with the help of six included doctor tools. Miniature doctors can grab the stethoscope to listen to her heart, use the thermometer to check her temperature, inject the syringe, get out the medicine bottle and spoon or cover up an imaginary injury with a pretty bandaid.

Pretend play gets extra real thanks to the special sensors on her body which recognise and react to the different accessories, eg. when you touch Little Love’s heart with the stethoscope you can hear her heart beat, a quick check of the ear with the thermometer confirms if her temperature is normal, when her elbow hurts a bandaid does the trick and a spoonful of medicine takes care of a sore throat.

From sound and colour effects to short, easy-to-understand phrases (simple health lessons in disguise!), with Little Love there is loads to see, hear, learn and discover. By recording your child’s name Little Love will form a special bond with her ‘doctor’. You can even go to the VTech website to select your child’s birthday, favourite things to do and set meal- and bedtimes, then sync these to your doll to get personalised responses.

I love how VTech uses fun, engaging pretend play to teach children about different body parts and everyday health problems, and what a fantastic way to prepare kids for a doctor visit or hospital stay too! If your little one gets nervous when medical professionals perform basic body checks Little Love can be just the friendly companion your child needs to put his/her mind at ease.

VTech toys are available at major department stores, select online stores and independent toy retailers across Australia.

Emporium D

They may only be six, four and one year old but my girls love pretty and shiny things as much as mama. When I unfolded the colourful drawing miss Juliet left in her shoe for Sinterklaas I wasn’t surprised to see a custom designed piece of jewellery; no request for Barbies, ponies or games but simply her very own piece of sparkle. I am thinking Sinterklaas is going to score really well this year as he just wrapped up a gorgeous parcel of Little Love goodness for this sweet girl:
