SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2019

Luvabella Newborn

The Luvabella Newborn doll is an interactive doll with an almost surreally realistic appearance. This was part of the appeal for our little testers who gravitated to it and couldn’t wait to start taking care of her. The doll is very well made and the interactive features work extremely well. The doll responds to touch, goes to sleep smoothly when laid down and wakes up quickly when picked up. Previous versions of the Luvabella doll spoke words, not this one, though she does have a litany of very realistic cooing and gurgling sounds which are quite adorable. A bottle and pacifier are included and both trigger appropriate responses: between the facial movements and the accompanying sounds, the doll really does look and sound like shes eating, and the actions when she sucks the pacifier are quite convincing. As a newborn the doll is a good size for smaller children to carry around. Testers liked that the doll comes in two different skin tones. The key here is the superb quality and attention to detail that Spin Master has obviously worked into her design. If you have a child that is showing an interest in nurturing a baby doll, they will love Luvabella.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
