Baby Stella vs. Rosy Cheek baby,
This review is from: Manhattan Toy Baby Stella Peach Soft Nurturing First Baby Doll (Toy)
I have 3 little girls--4,3, and 1.5. In an effort to avoid hard, plastic dolls, we have both Baby Stella and American Bear company's Rosy Cheek Baby. Here's my take on the two.
First of all, the rosy cheek doll is less expensive than Baby Stella, but is still soft, cuddly and well made. She is slightly bigger than Stella, and much lighter than Stella (Stella has some pellets inside giving her some heft). The ABC Rosy Cheek Baby has many outfits you can buy that are more expensive than baby Stella's outfits, but of a much better quality. Having both dolls however, I know that the outfits--shoes included fit interchangeably between the two, which is wonderful. They both have removable diapers, and wash up nicely in the washer. But what sets Baby Stella apart, and in my opinion makes her the far better choice, is the magnet behind her mouth for her pacifier, bottle (Included in the feeding set), and popcicle (summer outfit set). My girls love how Stella "grabs" her "nookie" or bottle.
As my 3 little girls often fight over our 2 baby dolls, I will probably buy another baby Stella at some point. (and possibly more Rosy Cheek baby doll outfits to go with her).

Thank you so much for this comparison. I am (or was) debating between the two for my daughter's first doll but you've made the decision really easy.

You are welcome--I now have 4 girls, 6, 5, 3, and 1, and baby Stella is still going strong and is a favorite by all!
