I recently had an opportunity to check out some of the Top Ten 2012 Gold Start Award Winner toys of the Neighborhood Toy Stores of Canada (NETS), including the Baby Stella Sweet Sounds doll from Manhattan Toy.
The NETS annual Gold Star Award products are toys that are tested by real kids and parents, and they have been described as ‘a great find’ and ‘the perfect fit’. These toys and games earn recognition based on their ‘exceptional’ play value, durability and safety. They are the toys and games that kids continue to play with long after they are ‘new’.
The Baby Stella Sweet sounds doll is a soft and cuddly doll recommended for children ages 12 months+. She is a great size to tote around and for not getting misplaced.
The doll features three realistic sounds: she makes a pacifier sucking noise when the pacifier is attached (magnets), she giggles when her foot is squeezed and she calls for “mama” when her hand is squeezed.
Stella comes with a pink ruffled onesie and diaper on. The onesie has a velcro like closure on the back that allows access to battery pack (two AA batteries are included). She also comes with a magnetic pacifier.
This adorable doll would make a fabulous present for a little girl, her fun interactive sounds are great to engage children during play. Be sure to visit Manhattan Toy to check out their selection of available accessories and clothing for Baby Stella.
