I grew up in the 60's/70's and had several drink and wet type dolls. I loved them and played with them all the time. It was a thrill to change a "real" diaper because it was actually wet! The dolls were very low tech (no tech actually) with just a hole in the mouth for the water bottle and a small hole in the bottom for the pee. Yes, the water would just come right out. No big deal...it was supposed to. It wasn't a lot of water, just a smidgen.

Remembering how much fun I had with this type of doll, my mom looked high and low for one like it for my now 6-yr-old daughter for Christmas last year and came up empty handed. So glad we found this doll. She is just like what I had as a child. It will be a fantastic present for my daughter this Christmas.

I think part of the problem today is customer expectations. This may be the fault of the manufacturer...if they positioned the doll as a potty training tool. The doll is obviously an infant...not old enough to even "walk" yet so clearly would not be time for potty training. The potty seat should be left out of the box. This seems to be the case with most of the other drink and wet dolls I now see on Amazon. Everyone keeps mentioning the potty training aspect. Forget the potty training with this doll...and just let your child enjoy a basic caring-for-baby play time and you should be happy!

I bought this for my 18 month old so she could have a baby in the pool and bathtub. I did not buy it for the potty training aspect. Most babydolls are cloth so can't take them in water....She absolutely LOOOOOVES this baby and takes it EVERYWHERE with us. It's the perfect size for her as well.

This baby boll is the perfect size for my 18 month old daughter to carry around. I like that it's just a plain doll, no bells and whistles so it's not heavy and is able to go in the tub with her if she wants.

My daughter recieved this as a gift for her 2nd birthday. I had hoped that it would help as a "demo" for potty training, but, like the other reviewers have said, "Annie" has poor bladder control! She is really cute and my little girl loves playing with her, so I'd still recommend it, just make sure Annie is wearing her diaper when you feed her and keep a paper towel close by.

she smells good. We used this doll for potty training purposes along with the toiled training in one day book. What a dream come true!!!!
I wished I had bought a slightly bigger doll since the water almost comes out immediately even though she was still laying down. It was perfect for the training purpose as we only used her for about an hour and then went to potty training mode.
Now that potty training is complete she is thrown along with the other dollies. OH yes, one very cool thing that sets her apart from other dolls it the moving eyelids. The kids loved this and are amazed by her eyes opening and shutting. Shes a cute doll and perfect for potty training! 2yr old daughter named her June. ha ha

Perfect teaching tool - it connected the dots immediately. Within minutes we had victory. Baby is sooo proud of herself using "potty training in less than a day" method. Need this visual for learning because Potty Annie actually pees.

Because this doll is relatively new, I ordered it without having any reviews to go on. I was planning on using it as a demonstration doll for potty training my 2 year old. However, I was dismayed to find that the doll only wets while she's drinking - i.e., she can't hold her pee. Consequently, this doll was not very helpful for potty training, unless you want your child to associate drinking on the toilet with peeing (and not surprisingly, my son asks for drinks while he's on the toilet now :)).

That said, this is a cute doll. The potty is only useful if you want to hold her up - she can't sit very well on it by herself. Just be aware that if you get it for your child to play with, the doll will pee right away if she gives her liquid.

My granddaughters love their dolls. They spend lots of time changing their babies, putting them in their bath, etc. They love pretending that this is their soon-to-be new baby brother or sister.

PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU LOSE THE BOTTLE, THE COMPANY DOES NOT HAVE REPLACEMENT BOTTLES.......
The doll is nice, is cute and works VERY well, but losing the bottle is not a pleasant experience........I had to get another doll to get another bottle.

My son and daughter in law were able to potty train their daughter very easily with this wet doll. The doll is very cute and it's adorable to watch my 3 year old grand-daughter changing the baby when she doesn't get he to the potty in time. Cute as it can be.
