Nenuco Holiday Review and Giveaway

 Mommy's Block Party Holiday Gift Guide 2013
S is a baby doll freak. She owns quite the assortment, hair/no hair, big/small, realistic/totally fake, smells real/stinky, you name it, she has it. That has not stopped her from asking for more from Santa and talking about them non-stop. She truly loves her babies, each has a name and she knows it too. I love watching her play mommy and taking care of her babies like she sees me do, makes me proud.

Recently we were given the opportunity to work with a great company called Famosa.  Famosa, based in Spain, was established in 1957 by a group of artisan doll makers.  They are a leading European toy company and doll manufacturer that strives for high quality products that are developmentally appropriate and safe for young children. In 2010, Famosa was acquired by Sun Capital Partners and US operations were established in late 2011. Famosa markets brands like Pinypon (read our review here) and also Nenuco.
 Nenuco is an adorable brand, specializing in realistic baby dolls for children as young as two years old. The dolls are encouraging children to be responsible and mimic daily parenting routines like feeding, dressing, and caring for the baby. Nenuco also likes to point out that the company is not just for girls, "although it can still be perceived as a 'girls' toy, in practice boys and girls share playing with dolls while playing house and overcoming old sexist roles." What a great view on the topic.
Our Nenuco package is here! So excited for S to check it out.
The doll retails for around $30 and is recommended for children ages 3-8.
The Sleep with Me doll is perfect for the doll lover in your family. I think S was over the moon in love with her new baby before she was even out of the box. She sat next to me the whole time I was opening and untying her from the box. The crib does need to be assembled, but was very quick and instructions were easy to follow. The crib also take 2 AAA batteries, luckily we had just purchased a pack and prepared.  
Our new baby is named Ginger and has been sleeping in S's room since she arrived. The Nenuco doll is 16.5" big, the perfect size for little ones to hold and love. She is a soft bodied doll, great for squeezing and snuggling. The Sleep with Me doll also comes with a blanket, bottle, and pacifier. S is very good at feeding and comforting her baby with the bottle and paci too. 
 The Sleep with Me doll comes with a unique cradle similar to what a real newborn has, it can free stand or even attach right to the child's bed to co-sleep. It has a specific space for both the bottle and pacifier so they aren't just laying around too. S loves that her baby is sleeping like our real Baby C, and is mimicking many things she has seen or sees me do. The crib also has a star nightlight that plays music.
 The Nenuco Sleep with Me Doll has been a huge hit with S and I couldn't be happier at how well she is taking care of her. Ginger has quickly become the newest member of the family.
