Charisma Giggle Time Dolls Review

If you are searching for the perfect doll for a special child or are a doll collector then you are going to want to check out the amazing selection of dolls available at Charisma. There is a huge selection of dolls including lines from Adora, Marie Osmond, Kewpie, Penny Brite, Whispering Willow Fairies and more. Charisma offers special edition dolls featuring a talking “Dorothy” from the Wizard of Oz doll collection and they even have the official doll license for the Girl Scouts.

My daughter was overjoyed to discover that the Easter bunny had brought a special delivery for her. She leaped up and down with excitement when presented with her new Giggle Time™ baby. This realistic play doll is perfect for little girls. Hannah immediately cuddled her doll to welcome it with a big hug and the Giggle Time™ baby let out adorable giggles which got everyone in the room laughing and smiling.

Giggle Time™ dolls are 14.5” and I was impressed to learn that these dolls are handmade and have a soft GentleTouch™ vinyl body that has a light baby powder scent. I love that this doll is very lightweight at only 16 ounces so it is the perfect size for my daughter to take along her with her…….in fact the doll even comes with its own baby carrier. The doll features are very realistic with sweet realistic eyes, hand painted sculpted hair, a tiny button nose and precious little hands and feet. Because the dolls have a weighted bean bag body it gives it a very life-like feel too. My daughter loves dressing her baby in the cute fleece sleeper and putting her to sleep with the magnetic pacifier. I absolutely love that it can be machine washed as needed too!

I am very pleased with the quality of the Giggle Time™ doll and at $39.99 find it to be a real bargain and a great gift idea. Recommended for ages 2+, these are the perfect first baby dolls. You can choose from five different skin tone styles of Giggle Time™ dolls to find the perfect match for your child.

Searching for a fabulous 18” inch doll for a child looking for an older doll? I love the selection of Adora 18” dolls and think that the Abigail-Girl Scout Jr. is really special.
