If Mattel had packaged the Skipper Babysitters babies in a blind box so that you didn't know which of the three characters you'd get, and then included five individually-wrapped little plastic accessories, they could have put the dolls into bigger, flashier boxes and advertised them as surprise dolls. The dolls have movable arms and legs and they come in a crib with a dinky soft blanket for snuggly snoozes! I don't think any of them will replace my favorite 2000s Barbie babies, but its nice to have cheaper and easier to find options. My complaint about Gina is they molded her in a way that it looks like she needs a diaper change but you can't do anything because its painted on.

But changing diapers is a big part of baby play for kids, and so I agree that Gina's molded diaper comes up short! A surprise toy with an option that's clearly better than the rest (maybe even advertised as such) is setting kids up for a *bad* surprise, which is the worst. More than 24 million BABY born dolls have been sold all over the world since the market launch in 1991. I'm glad that I took a chance on a second character in this scale, because I think Chester is adorable. Includes two or three babies with swaddle wrap and one bed, birth certificate and overview of the babies.I wish that Marigold had neck articulation, and I wish her mouth and been painted more carefully, but otherwise she's great. Each swaddle comes in a fun shape – an apple, a cupcake, an ice-cream cone… Which one will yours be? And Marigold wins it all by being the cheapest and the most versatile of the entire group, even though there are no surprise elements in her packaging or appearance.

But for most kids, the joy of receiving a wrapped mystery gift is confined to only one or two times during the year.The pattern isn't super-clear (and it disappears again when the diaper is dry), but it looks like the "Lilipads" pattern, which means a September birthday. Their highly-maneuverable heads are really expressive, and I like that they don't have "bottle mouth" like Apollo.

There are little pink bows in the baby's hair, which suggests a girl, but there's no obvious gender reveal moment. But I wanted to see what kinds of mini babies are available on the market today, so I focused on this theme during one of my Target missions. It used to be relatively hard to find a surprise-themed toy, other than the smaller (inexpensive) blind box assortments. Brianna's clothing was accented with seafoam green, and all of the Creatable World kids have that color in their packaging. The Baby Born Surprise Mini Babies probably do the best in this department in my opinion, because I find all of the themes adorable.

I think Chester and Apollo would make great bath toys, with their ability to drink and pee, but little Chester was still leaking water out of his mouth when I took that picture, above, which was days after I'd fed him. Both butterflies taste bad to predators, and so together they strengthen the connection between this particular pattern of orange and black and an icky taste--making predators more likely to stay away.
