American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win a Little Mommy doll!

I don’t know how we’d get through bathtime in my house without bath toys. What’s funny is that the gender lines are never so apparent as they are when my kids take turns getting clean. When my son takes a bath, he entertains himself with toys that squirt, whether its a duck that spits or a water pump he can aim at the ceiling. My daughter, on the other hand, acts out complicated stories with her Barbies.  

When this Little Mommy Bubbly Bathtime doll hit my desk this week, I had a total flashback to playing with a doll in the tub when I was a child. My “baby” was a pretty basic plastic blob, nothing like this new Little Mommy. She has purple pretend paint on her belly that magically washes clean when you get her wet (thanks to color-change technology). She also comes with a tub that has a working pump (fill it with bubble bath) and a crazy-bird hooded towel to wear when it’s time to dry off. And she smells like vanilla. (Check her out below, on my windowsill!)

Little Mommy is age-graded for 2 and up. And although I keep referring to the doll as “she,” the hair is short enough to pass for a boy or girl (because some kids want to be a parent to a boy baby). And by the way, my son loves to be a daddy once he’s out of the tub…though to a vast collection of stuffed penguins who are all his “babies.”

Want to win one of these? Mattel will give away five Little Mommy Bubbly Bathtime dolls, worth $19-$22 each. For your chance, just leave a comment below; tell me how your child plays at being a parent, or your own memory of parenting toys when you were little. You can leave up to one comment a day between now and the end of the day on Wednesday, January 30th. Read the official rules here. Goody luck!

    My daughter (3) LOVES bath time! We have a bucket of little toys, bubble baths, and bath color tabs. She loves to pick what colors to use and each bath time it’s always different! She pretends she is a mermaid, fish, or a swimmer and pretends to clean all her underwater friends (duck, frog, whatever she has at hand, really). She used to be terrified of water but once I bought her her first bath toys (light up bath sucks) she learned to love the water! Now I can’t get her out!!!

    My 2 year old is anxiously awaiting the arrival of a new baby in the family. She is working hard with her babies using gentle touches and helping do whatever she can- from swaddling to singing sweet lullabies to giving warm baths she truly treats her babies as if they were real. She loves singing to her babies and loves giving all of her dolls baths! We even have separate towels for her babies! She would love the idea of this new baby doll especially with the working pump!!!

    I have two little girls. My 3 year old is wanting a baby brother and so she is constantly carrying her baby dolls around these days. And my 1 year old is just a little mother all around, she loves on the babies and rolls them around in the stroller and everything has to be perfect when they are sitting or laying down. They have to sit straight or their blankets have to be completly straight and covering them. They both love there babys.

    My 18 month old loves playing tea party with her babies. She’ll give them food, and sips from a tea cup. She carries them around everywhere or pushes them in a stroller. It’s so cute!

    My daughter LOVES being mommy to her babies and her little brother. When my son is in time out, she often asks if she can go talk to him. We’ll hear her saying, “Buddy, we don’t hit OK? We need to be sweet. OK, now you can get out of time out. I love you.” It’s hilarious and precious all at the same time!

    Since my daughter does not have siblings yet, what she does is have the dolls as her sisters and then they have children.

    My 2 year old daughter loves babies. She turns them all over on their tummies when it’s time to go to sleep. She had strategically placed a baby wipe over each of them for blankets while they went to sleep last night. So cute.

    We already have the Little Mommy, Dr. Mommy doll (among many other Little Mommy dolls) and the kids really enjoy playing with it. They become fully engaged, offering maternal nurturing as the interactive doll deals with her ailments. We love Little Mommy brand.
