With the kids growing up so fast I feel like I am constantly putting away clothes they have outgrown. Some pieces don’t mean that much to me but others hold special memories and it saddens me to see them folded away in a storage box, safely packed until they can be worn by a sibling or when I am ready to say goodbye to them. But there is a clever solution to this problem, check out these dolls from Oobicoo.

New to Australia the Oobicoo dolls are a perfect buddy for young children, they are soft, cuddly and the same size as an average 6 month old (60cm tall). This means you don’t have to buy special dolls clothes, the Oobicoo dolls can just wear your child’s old baby clothes. What a fantastic way to recycle old baby clothing and op-shops should be able to provide an instant wardrobe if you needed any more clothes.

The Oobicoo dolls can sit up unaided which is great for role play and as you can imagine they are also a perfect tool for preparing your child for the arrival of a new baby brother or sister. He/she can look after Oobicoo while mummy cares for the new baby! The dressing and undressing, doing up buttons and zips, tying up laces etc. will aid the development of fine motor skills in young children.

There are three different Oobicoo designs available: Ollie, Orla and Olwyn, so there is a huggable Oobicoo friend for both boys and girls. The recommended age is 3 years and up but children as old as 9 are known to enjoy playing with Oobicoo too. Oobicoo dolls ($69.95) are made from recycled and recyclable materials and each doll comes with its own Oobicoo bodysuit and fabric ‘pod’.

  31. We love Orla Oobicoo, because she looks a lot like our gorgeous 4 year old, Isabella, who just loves ‘baby’ dolls. The Oobicoo dolls are a perfect size, being larger and able to wear actual ‘real’ baby clothes! So much easier for the littlies to dress/undress the dolls, with larger buttons, etc. We also love the recycled aspect, so great for helping to teach kids about reusing materials, and how fantastic a recycled product can look! We just love Oobicoos!

  42. Ollie, he looks like my husband when he was little !!!

  43. Orla – she has the same hair as us girls in the family, so will fit right in.

  44. Ollie is by far the best, there aren’t enough boy dolls in the world, that aren’t covered in combat gear, carrying weapons !

  45. I adore Orla for my little girl, they both have gorgeous brown hair and she would be perfect to practice my daughters fashion skills on.

  61. Keep It Green bag at Coccinella is my favourite one.

  62. Love Hess Fairy Learning Clock at Little Boo-Teek

  63. Farm Animal Finger Puppets at WhimsyChild is one of my favourites.

  64. Really like Boys AMAZON Hoodie at Havoc Denim. Looks so cool.

  65. I really had to toss up between Orla and Olwyn as they are both so very cute but I ended up choosing Orla as she has more of my daughters hair coloring and is absolutely beautiful. My daughter absolutely loves dolls and babies and i think she would be absolutely frilled to see one of her favourite baby dresses on a doll of her own. I also like the fact that they have their own uniqueness about them that you don’t normally see in dolls. My daughter would absolutely love to own one of her own.

  66. I love Ollie because I think it is unique for a doll of this type to be male. He’s rather cute too!

  72. We would love to adopt Orla into our family, settling into hand me down recycled clothes and baby blankets which we treasure and can’t bear to part with. It would be a great opportunity to display them on life size doll rather than hide them away. It will bring back fond memories of when my children wore the same outfits or used bunny rugs. Being soft and plush will assist my daughter two and half to dress her independently and make for beautiful cuddles. I can already picture her taking Orla for a ride in the car when there is an empty seat or for walks in her stroller and playing with her hair. She will make a lovely addition to our family and I know my son would love her too.

  73. shared the Oobicoo doll love

  74. What a great idea! I LOVE Ollie! Its hard to find dolls that aren’t covered in pink. My little boy would love him! But I think I would love him even more. I have my kids baby clothes hoarded away in plastic containers because it breaks my heart to get rid of them! Also love that they are recycled & recyclable.

  79. 41 Orchard – My favourite item is the Elephant family wall stickers (so cute!)

  80. Sustainababy – I love everything! But my favourite would have to be the Serena & Lily Gypsy Peacock Tote.

  81. Whimsy Child – Ed the elephant Agoo bamboo leg warmers <3

  82. Liked Oobicoo on Facebook

  83. I love Orla my girls love dressing up their dolls and this would be perfect because after 2 girls with soo many cute stlylish baby clothes they can be reused and reloved on their own babies! They would spend hours with their baby dressing, undressing doing her hair and putting bows and clips in it, like they do to each other. They are great to each other and this would help them to love their baby like their sister. She even has curly hair like them, and looks a little like Dora their idol!

  84. I like Orla, she has the same hair & eye colour as me so she’d fit right into our family.

  109. Cute little Orla I’d like to adopt,
    a happy home she’d find with us,
    we’ll dress her up in our favourite clothes,
    a little sister to admire the most

  138. I would choose Ollie so he could join in and play with my daughter’s doll chloe. He could be her brother’s toy too. I love the look of these as they are soft and have nice facial features.

  139. Love Olwyn, for my youngest to play with while her Olwyn look-a-like big sisters are at school xoxoxo

  140. I would chose Ollie, a little brother for my girls to play with. He has awesome hair too!
