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’.
