The newest addition to Madame Alexander’s Newborn Nursery Line are the interactive baby dolls called Babblebabbies™. These dolls are designed to look and feel like a real baby, complete with over 80 real baby sound combinations. Babblebabies sigh, cry, giggle, chuckle and of course, babble for a very real experience.  I had the opportunity to preview these dolls at a toy show recently, and they are truly amazing!  Madame Alexander’s exceptional attention to detail is evident with this new line and makes them look and feel so real, complete with 19-inch height and expressive faces.

There are 6 new dolls in the Babblebabies collection that include boy and girl options. Choose from different hair and eye colors and skin tones. These babies are amazing and will make the doll-loving child on your wish list very happy this holiday! For ages 3 and older.


I received this adorable Madame Alexander Babblebaby to review, along with a very cool travel friend from India! As part of the International Collection, the travel friends are 7″ play dolls from countries around the world that include information about each country’s customs, culture and more. So cute.

Legends of Oz Dolls by Madame Alexander

If you or anyone you know is a fan of the classic film “The Wizard of Oz”, you’ll love the new 2014 Legends of Oz collection by Madame Alexander. Created to celebrate the release of the latest animated feature film, Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return, this exclusive collection of dolls features the film’s beloved characters: Dorothy, Glinda, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and China Princess. In typical Madame Alexander fashion, these 12″ dolls are quality items that will provide hours of creative play. Each doll is 12″ tall and retails for $15. A fantastic gift for birthdays and special occasions, and I know plenty of adults who would love these dolls, too.

Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is a 3D-animated musical with A-list voice talents. Legends of Oz features Lea Michele as Dorothy, Dan Akroyd as the Scarecrow, Jim Belushi as the Cowardly Lion, Kelsey Grammer as the Tin Man and Bernadette Peters as Glinda.

My friend Darcy loves dolls and is my reviewer of choice when it comes to toys.

Do Older Girls Play With #Dolls? Madame Alexander Thinks So

At Toy Fair a few weeks ago, I discovered the Madame Alexander booth and the latest Isaac Mizrahi fashion collection (it’s so cool, check it out). One thing led to another and after I raved about how much I love the brand, I’m pleased to announce that I am on the Mom Advisory Board!  Madame Alexander dolls have been around for a long time and many older girls and adults have impressive collections. But I had to ask the question in today’s tech-centric world where kids play with apps and phones: do they still play with dolls? I found the answer when I received the Lullaby Bunny Baby.

The brand is synonymous with quality, and their motto is “Love Is In The Details”. That is certainly true when I received the Lullaby Bunny Baby. This soft, adorable doll in a bunny outfit is perfect for younger children, 18 months and older. However, it found a home very quickly when my 7-year-old friend Darcy discovered it in my office. Her eyes lit up and I found out that she absolutely loves baby dolls and still enjoys playing with them. Even though girls her age may have outgrown them (or never liked them), it just goes to show that every child is different and there are plenty of terrific, quality products that encourage creative, open-ended, and dare I say “traditional” play. The Isaac Mizrahi collection certainly shows how Madame Alexander is keeping up with trends in the category.

This 12 inch doll plush baby doll with plush hands and blue eyes wears a pink and white knit bunny romper which has a white-trimmed hood and bunny ears. The front of her romper is detailed by an appliqué of a little mouse. The final touch for this baby is a musical one… when you press her hand, music plays a sweet lullaby! This award-winning doll makes it a perfect birthday or holiday gift.




New Madame Alexander Dolls Offer Fashion, Fun

Toy Fair is so much fun! From tech toys to dolls, there is so much to discover in the aisles. One of my favorite brands that I had a chance to visit was Madame Alexander, known for beautiful, quality dolls that become treasured keepsakes. Famous designer Isaac Mizrahi has partnered with Madame Alexander to create a four-doll collection that fashionistas will love. Babble Babies are also coming soon. These babies coo and babble when your child talks to them. So cute! Did you know that Madame Alexander offers a doll hospital?
