When the teenager was younger we bought her a Baby Annabell. As she grew older the doll was disbanded to a cupboard and a couple of years ago she gave it to the 5 year old.
At this point Baby Annabell still had all her faculties; she would suck a dummy, go to sleep and cry. One day in the Summer the 5 year old was playing in the garden. Whilst I was in the kitchen the 5 year old decided to give Baby Annabell a bath in the paddling pool.
When I realised what was going on, I removed her from the paddling pool and sat her on a chair in the sunshine to dry whilst lecturing my daughter about battery operated toys and water.
Later the family arrived for a BBQ and as everyone sat in the garden the doll came to life. Like something from a horror movie it started crying like a witch and sucking it’s imaginary dummy whilst opening and shutting its eyes.
All batteries were removed and to this day she still plays with it, although it has no clothes and is a little grubby. She’s seen the new updated version of Baby Annabell, and she now has a double buggy for her dolls. I’ve discovered that the new version wakes up and cries if disturbed by noise.
She somehow convinced me that the scary doll needs a twin. I bought Baby Annabell and sent her to Santa … COUGH … just before I heard from the people at Very so I am a tad miffed
I wonder how long the 5 year old will last before she breaks due to sleep deprivation and takes the batteries out?
