Baby Alive is a line of toy dolls produced by toy and board game manufacturer Hasbro. The characteristic feature of the Baby Alive line is the range of real life processes the dolls mimic.
From the first product released in the '70s, the dolls from the Baby Alive range have replicated the full digestion process. Specially created doll food is put into the dollâs mouth, at which point a mechanism kicks in that replicates chewing. The food is then released through a hole at the rear of the doll. The Sin 'N Slurp doll automatically pours liquid from its cup into its mouth, when prompted by a squeeze of its stomach. The liquid is then released through the posterior of the baby. This doll is birthday-themed and is also fitted with a mechanism that allows the doll to blow its party blower.
Some dolls in the range are also fitted with voice boxes. Speaking dolls include Baby Alive Learn to Potty, Changing Time Baby and Baby Alive Real Surprises. Baby Alive Baby's New Teeth is a unique creation that sprouts new teeth when its tongue is pressed. These teeth can be cleaned with the brush and toothpaste that come with the doll.
Because of the consumptive nature of the dolls, the Baby Alive range requires extra supplies and refills, once those provided with the original purchase have been exhausted. Additional materials include extra feed and extra nappies. There are also clothes and shoes that can be bought for the Baby Alive dolls.
