November 2007 New Toys — Dolls - Talking

Baby Annabell New V4 by ZAPF CREATION (U.S.) INC.

When the "doll mummy" talks to Baby Annabell, she turns her head to the left or the right depending on where the voice is coming from. She babbles, gurgles and sucks on her dummy. When she drinks from the water-filled bottle she makes sucking sounds. Once she has finished drinking, she burps and falls asleep. If she is awakened by noise, she cries - and real tears roll down her cheeks - but singing soon hushes her. The new Baby Annabell’s increased capacity to interact with her "doll mummy" will help girl’s fluency, confidence and growing sense of responsibility. 11/12/2007 (Price: $70.47)

The creators of ‘In the Night Garden’ on the CBeebies channel have turned to the toy-makers Hasbro to come up with all the merchandise. The pick of the bunch is looking like it will be the interactive all singing and dancing Igglepiggle toy, though Igglepiggle’s red soft fleece blanket with a miniature Igglepiggle tucked inside [at MSRP: $71.17] is also tipped to be a sellout. 11/12/2007 (Price: $30.19) [Add to my Inquiry Basket][?]


Twenty-four years ago, Darla Davenport-Powell created a doll for her newborn daughter, Niya. Throughout the subsequent decades, she developed her idea for an interactive doll that could speak and sing in three different languages: English, Spanish and Swahili. Darla appeared on ABC's "American Inventor" show and was one of 12 semifinalists, receiving $50,000 to develop her idea further. The finished Niya changes the language she speaks based on the instrument that's put into her hand. She also has a range of friends that she's met from her travels across the globe. "We're still in the prototype stage and are looking for backers," Hannah Barrell, new business manager for Dynamic Designworks, Inc. , told TDmonthly.
