Baby Born Surprise Review

As soon as I found out that Baby Born were doing little surprise packs I was very excited and intrigued. Lily loves babies and she also loves opening the surprise packages. So I was excited to be able to review them and find out all about them. 

We was sent 3 baby born surprise packages from Zapf Creation. 


The first thing I noticed was that they were encased in a hard plastic round shaped tub. I advise that you try and open this part and not your child. The plastic is quite hard and when cut is also sharp. 

The next layer there is some material wrapped around a oval shape and tied at the top. It is decorated really cute with baby pictures on it. When you undo this it reveals the baby inside. 



Each baby comes wrapped in a cute little swaddle and each swaddle is different. Our first one we got was wrapped in a Unicorn Swaddle. We also got a mermaid and a bunny. You can also get a Bee, Duck, Ice Cream, blue or pink Butterfly, Blue Bear, Green Peapod, or a Pink Poodle. 

As well as your baby it contains a surprise plastic packet which has a bottle inside, it also has instructions and birth certificate with lots of information about you baby plus a collectors guide. 




On the Birth Certificate you can write babies name, birthday, city of birth, and star sign. To figure out these you need look on the bottom of the collectors guide and it will give you hints to what they are. For example, our unicorn swaddle means that that baby was born in October. 

Each baby also comes with a different hair style and you can tick off which hair styles you get on the collectors guide. 


Your babies will come with their eyes closed. You can either leave it so your babies eyes are closed or you can magically make them open. But note that if they are made to open, they cannot close again. To make your babies eyes open just get a wet cloth and wipe the eyes. It wipes away a little like paint, so I suggest using a wet wipe as these can be thrown afterwards. When your babies eyes are open you can then see what colour they are. The colours of the eyes will help you name your baby and you can refer to the collectors guide to find this out. Our babies had purple eyes, brown eyes and blue eyes. 



Another thing you can do with your baby is feed it a drink. The bottle fills with water and then the bottle fits into the babies mouth. After it has had a drink it will then wet its nappy. Another surprise is that the nappy turns into a patterned nappy when wet. This then means you can look at the collectors guide to find out your babies favourite food. I did find that the babies wet their nappy slowly rather than instantly. One baby had carrots as the pattern for the nappy, which means her favourite food is carrots. 


Lily loved caring for her babies but her favourite thing was giving them a drink and making them wet their nappies. We then used the little plastic tubs they came in as beds and the material they were wrapped in as blankets. Always good when you can make use of the packaging of any surprise related toy. 

Each surprise toy is RRP £11.99 and is available in toy stores such as Smyths Toy Store. 

Does your child like Surprise toys? Would they enjoy a baby born surprise?

  8. Baby Born (Harry and Meghan) had their baby son this month. Surprise :- Seems birth facts can remain a Suprise (baby / babies like to keep us guessing. When will be the arrival date, time, type of birth, etc.What will be the baby's sex, number (single, multiple. Where will be the place of birth. Who will be / may be present at birth (baby father, birth partner, doula, midwife, obstetrician, neonatologist / paediatrician ). Why ? :- Experience, as well as transition to motherhood / family life may be easier if preparation was beneficial for experiences (life experience, transition to new role, change in family life, etc).

    Luckily with the Surprise dolls :- Fun, is the order of the day. Celebration of arrival. Role play. In control of imaginative play scenarios, etc. Baby doll sleeps / rests when child wants it to. Blends in with child, child's toys, lifestyle, etc. Child may share and / or exchange Surprise doll /s with sibling / friends.

  9. Birth Certificate :- Nice idea.

    Reminded me of Kennel Club Registration certificate / papers. As I can recall many years ago my brother completed these when his dog had had litter of pups. I have great memories of when he let his dog have litter of pups (two occasions). A great experience to see them be born, grow and mature. Luckily we saw some grown, as one kept, and another family member raised another of the pups.

    We truly enjoyed seeing how pup grew up and interacted with her mother. They were great company for one another, our family, friends, neighbour's, etc.

  17. I recently browsed the Internet in regards to th origins of Baby Shower. I thought originated in America. It seems that many countries / cultures have the same or similar ( as baby shower).

    Came across Diaper Party when browsing. It seems this is for the Dad to be. Having a First Child is a major transition :- So seems sensible / reasonable that Dad to be should be acknowledge by community / society in his preparation for Parenthood. A nice tradition :- Welcoming, and Acnowledging Gender Equality, and Equality generally.
