Remember how I found Stephanie, the blonde curly-haired doll at Kmart just recently? She was sitting there on the shelf all by herself. Funnily enough, that’s exactly how I found my next Babysitters Inc. doll, too! She was by herself, with two more curly-haired girls by her side. Still there was no price tag, but she scanned at the register for $13.
The doll aisle was quite busy today, I had to reach in over several people and grab her before anybody else did! I then ran off with the doll to the checkout 😉
The box is the exact same as the last Babysitter doll I bought. You can read the review about the previous doll here.
The accessories include a pink bottle (Stephanie’s is blue), a cardboard pizza, a notepad and a toy (I decided not to keep the toy, so I didn’t bother to photograph it).
Stephanie came with some popcorn, while this girl comes with pizza. I threw away the popcorn but I will keep the pizza -at least it makes sense to have flat pizza! Having a cardboard popcorn seems a bit redundant.
Her shoes are pink sneakers. They say “Skipper” on the bottom. They’re cute, but nothing particularly special.
Her outfit is floral shorts and a long pink shirt. I wouldn’t mix patterns like this irl, but on a doll it kinda works! It’s cute, I like both pieces very much (not that I have anything to mix them with!)
The shorts are made with tough material, while the shirt is very soft and feels like a real shirt.
Her phone is blue. I like it how all the dolls have different colours and designs -imagine if you collected the whole line and they were all the same! That would be annoying.
It would have been nice if there wasn’t a baby’s face on the phone. Is the baby her wallpaper? Is the baby ringing her? (haha) Why isn’t there a regular phone screen? So many questions!
I think her face is very cute and sweet! She has the same shape eyes as Stephanie. I like how her lipstick colour matches her shirt. At first I wasn’t liking the mole, I thought it was a mark made by mistake, but now I think it’s cute! It definitely makes her more interesting and special.
Her hair is roped together by plastic bands, and she has an annoying tag stuck into her head.
Fun Fact: I usually cut these out, as close as I can get the scissors. This leaves a tiny bit of cord stuck in her head that you can feel when you brush the doll’s hair. Today, I decided to give the cord a strong pull and it popped right out! It feels smooth and lovely now; no plastic bump on this girl!
The plastic ties leave a few bumps in her hair. They’ll smooth out in time, I guess.
Here she is with Stephanie! As you can see, they have the same hollow body with the bent arm. While I was photographing for this post, both girls fell over at least twenty times! I would definitely pay more for a bend n snap body…
All my Skipper dolls together! Please ignore Taylah (the one on the right, with the blue hair), who is still wearing her bikini top. It was almost 11pm and I really couldn’t be bothered to change her outfit.
I think my OG 2012 Skipper (on the left) looks the youngest out of the four, while Taylah looks like her cooler, older cousin who Skipper is jealous of. You can read Taylah’s introduction post here, and Skipper’s introduction post here.
At first I was going to name this girl “Janet,” because she reminded me of Janet from the Wee 3 Friends line, but then I thought that might be a bit weird because Janet is Stacie’s friend.
I then decided to name her Janessa, in true Barbie fashion. (Janessa is a character from the 2006 film Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princesses and the 2009 film Barbie presents Thumbelina).
THEN I realised I already have a doll named Janessa! Silly me! So her name is Nerada. Somebody on Instagram suggested it awhile ago, for a different doll.
I’m really, really happy with my purchase! I think she’s just adorable. She’s prettier than both Skipper (left) and Stephanie (right), if you ask me!
If I collect all the dolls in this series, I won’t be annoyed with myself at all because I think they are really worth it. And only $13! What a deal.
What do you think? Which Babysitter doll is your favourite?
