I’ve mentioned a few times how my girls just love teeny tiny collectibles, so when we had the opportunity to review a new range of collectible toys – the Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tots dolls – we jumped at it.
As it happens, these arrived the same week Aviya lost her bed-time buddy, her favourite cuddle toy, which seems to have remained behind somewhere while we were on holiday, so these have temporarily dulled the wailing and gnashing of teeth while I scramble to find it.
Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tots are a palm sized, fairly realistic looking newborn baby dolls. The are incredibly detailed for something of the size that they are, and they’ve really put effort into these dolls. The heads, hands and feet are hard plastic, but the bodies are soft, with removable outfits.
There are 30 dolls to collect, and each one has it’s own unique look and outfit – where some wear the same outfits, they have facial differences, like open eyes or closed eyes.
Each individual Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tot comes in its own cardboard cot which is also it’s packaging, so once you remove the plastic cover (which is attached by an easy to remove sticker) you have a baby in a crib. It’s very cute and I love how little waste there is to this product!
While the little babygrow is removable, I love that the mittens are attached, because you know they’d be missing within 30 seconds of leaving the baby’s hands! Another really sweet touch to these is that each baby comes with a hospital band with the baby’s name and date of birth on it. Very cute.
Along with the individual Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tots there are also three play sets, and we received the Bedtime Accessory Set which comes with the cot and it’s fittings and another newborn baby in a babygrow.
The Bedtime Accessory Set comes with a plastic cot with removable drawers and a removable cot mobile to which you can attach the stars and moons that come with the set. There’s also a fluffy blanket and a cot mattress. The doll with this – Luna, whether that’s the same in all sets or not I’m not sure – is clearly a newborn, I mean just look at that face! She also comes with a hospital band that gives you her details.
The whole set is really very cute and sweet and, yes, they are tinsy winsy and they are very sweet. They’re a little more expensive than your average collectable, but I think they have a bit more substance to them and more playability than your average collectable too.
The individual Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tots are individually priced at £7.99 at Smyths Toys which means they won’t break the bank, and even the play set – the Bed Time Accessories – at £14.99 is at the low end of the collectable play set price ranges.
We were sent the above set free in exchange for an unbiased review. Opinions are my own – swayed heavily by that of the children!
