Great Holiday Gift- Kidkraft Lil' Doll Cradle

Pin It Now!
I learn things hand-on, by doing and touching and pretending. I assume that Baby Bear learns the same way. We really wanted her to understand what it will be like when #2 arrives and received this amazing opportunity to try out the Kidkraft Lil' Doll Cradle.

I was really surprised when it arrived and the package was so small. I love that the Kidkraft company packages this big product in a small compact flat box. It requires assembly but it took me less than 5 minutes to put it together with just a screw driver.  It has beautiful scalloped trim and filigree cutouts and can accommodate a 19" doll.

Their products are really nice looking when finished and the construction is very sturdy.  It comes with a mattress, pillow and blanket.  Baby Bear was so excited when she saw what we got for her and immediately knew what to do and grabbed her baby doll put it under the covers.  Then she took out a picture book to read it.  She even rocked the cradle while she read the book.  He doll closes it's eyes when laying down, so she kept telling us "shhh.. baby sleeping!"

Baby Bear insisted that the Kidkraft Lil' Doll Cradle sit next to her bed (a Kidkraft Slatted Toddler Bed) and it looks so cute.  She put all of her stuffed animals together in the Lil' Doll Cradle and even added another blanket.  

Having the doll cradle is such a great way for her to use her imagination with her toys and to learn about how to take care of a baby at the same time.  Plus she will have her own doll that she can play with the same way that I will be taking care of the baby.  I think that she will feel more in control of the circumstance if I tell her "baby needs to go to sleep" and we can put her sister in her bed and the doll in the doll bed at the same time.
