Nick is a Miaculti Real Effect Baby doll by Nicky Creations. Made in Germany, Nick measures 52cm in length, weighs just over 1kg and is suitable for children to play with from age 3 years and up. As their name implies, the Miaculti Babies are designed to look very realistic, and I have to say I am very impressed with the quality of the dolls.
Nick's head and limbs are made with very soft phthalate free vinyl. All of his features are very realistic including his sparkly blue eyes made from safety glass, his wrinkly feet with long toes, the creases around his eyes, and even his little wet nose! Nick's hands are both scupted in different positions and the arms are also non symmetrical. Nick's body is made from skin tone brushed flannel filled with fibre and also some granules in his bottom to make him feel like a real baby. Nick also has faintly painted brown hair.
Nick's outfit is really sweet. He is wearing a long sleeved ivory ribbed T shirt which fastens at the back with velcro. His trousers are made from ivory velour with a little print of bunnies and dogs in shades of brown, red and pale blue. The trousers are elasticated around the ankle and waist. Nick's hooded jacket and bootees are made from the same pale blue fluffy fabric and the jacket is lined with ivory brushed cotton. There are long ties attached at the neck of the jacket, each with a pale blue pom pom on the end and the jacket fastens with poppers. Nick is also wearing a newborn disposable nappy.
Nick can be dressed in actual baby clothes.
This was a gift for my daughter from her loving Mimi. First of all, we ordered three of these doll for each of my girls and each one is uniquely beautiful. While we loved the boy aspect, we did change this one over to a girl very easily with a few pink outfits. My daughter dresses her in some of her saved newborn clothes that she used to wear, making her all the more sentimental. My daughter is 7 and carries her baby with her where ever we go, making sure to bring her newborn diapers purchased just for the doll! The shape of her hands and feet, the little wet looking area under her nose, all of the details here are amazing. This is a long term investment and this doll will be with us for years.
Nick is one amazing real looking baby doll. My daughter fell in love with him instantly. Worth the money.
