this toy lets teenagers who had one when they were young, if they have a baby when there 14 (by accident) and it wont be hard to look after and even the sensible children will think they can have children on purpose when they are young thinking it will be no doodle so i think they would have to make this product more realistic so children would then discover what is necessary skills you would need to become a parent and doing so could probably reduce the number of pregnancies under the age of… Read Full Review

I hate the version 6 Baby Annabell doll! After exchanging 3 faulty dolls (all same fault!) we've finally decided to go for the version 5 which is half the price and twice as good! When I decided to buy a Baby Annabell doll for my daughter because she's really into playing mummy, I had a good look around. Everyone is currently (summer 2011) trying to sell off the Version 5 half price and Argos had the new version 6 in, so i thought i'd get that. Pro's My daughter (nearly 2) LOVED "baby!" and… Read Full Review

We bought this product (the version 5) for our daughter for Christmas 2010. Overall, its a success and she really loves the doll.
She looks after it - pushes it around in a little pushchair, feeds it, cuddles it and wants to 'mother' it.
It's supposed to do things like cry and burp - but it doesn't, which is quite disappointing.
Other than that though its a good doll so I would probably recommend it. Its just a shame that not all the features work.
That main thing though is that my 2.5… Read Full Review

I also bought a V4 Baby Annabell doll for my 3yr old for Xmas 08 and have had the same problems as many of you have stated here - after waking and turning her head to one side she switches off and can only be reactivated by taking out and replacing the same batteries.
Unfortunately, I bought mine from Woolworths so couldn't return it so I sent mine back to Zapf. They returned the same doll with a note stating "Please only use Phillips Powerlife Betteries" which they also enclosed (but did not… Read Full Review

Baby Annabell could be a nice doll if it worked propperly. Baby Annabel turns out after some time. Turn off/on button does not work if that happens. You have to open and get the batteries out and in. After that it works again for some time. This is our third Baby Annabell in 1 month with this problem.
The forums in the Netherlands write about this same problem with Baby Annabell version 4… Read Full Review

It has been interesting to read the different comments on this doll, my daughter got the new version of this doll for her birthday and has had nothing but problems with it, it doesn't cry and everytime you feed it it stops working and won't work till the batteries have been changed, total waste of money if you ask me, the shop where it was brought from won't do anything as i don't have a receipt, so where do i go now… Read Full Review

If anyone knows of where I can get another version 3 doll please let me know.
Baby Annabell V4 is the biggest waste of time. I have twin girls, one girl has V3 and we have had no problems. We are on our third Version 4 doll and she doesn't move her head but makes an awful whirring sound.
We bought this one from Amazon and they say that Zapf have a fault with this version. So why are companies still selling it???… Read Full Review

I bought 2 of these for the my twin daughters, after 1 hour one stopped working completely changed batteries 3 times. Also the eye lashes fell out. Changed doll at shop where bought, again after one hour batteries had run out again. Would be excellent play value if the batteries would last more than 1 hour. You cant keep re-inserting the batteries every 5 minutes to make the functions work. Very frustrating for the girls. Will not bother again with baby annabel unless the manufacture pulls… Read Full Review

Could go on and on about how bad this doll is. Spoken to manufacturers about faults , been offered yet another doll , but frankly wont bother with another one. Will have to learn from this one , never bought this make of doll before, always regarded them as expensive, now they are a waste of money as well. Manufacturers trying to be clever in their design , but failling miserably with the practical aspects and delivering poorly to the expectaions of the young children they are trying to appeal… Read Full Review

I bought a Baby Annabell for my daughter for christmas 2007 and by January 5th 2008 we are already on faulty Baby Annabell number 3. The neck mechanism which makes the head turn has not worked properly on any of the three dolls. If this problem was solved it would be a great toy worthy of 8 or 9 out of 10. As it is though it only gets 3 out of 10.
More importantly though I now have one very upset daughter and a load of Baby Annabell equipment / clothes that have been a waste of money so far… Read Full Review

My mother-in-law got the Baby Annabell doll a while back for my daughter, who has since lost interest in it. It has been played with a few times, but it mostly sits naked in the corner of her room, switched off of course. My daughter really loved making it cry because it annoyed me, and she also hated the fact she couldn't put it in the bath!
I think this doll has more appeal for adults due to the weird 'real' sounds and facial movement (creepy)! Definitely an expensive toy for what it is… Read Full Review
