Special Delivery! New Water Babies are Here. Dolls deliver the warmth, weight and feel of a real baby

Water Babies

(SAN FRANCISCO, Fall/Holiday 2008) – Wild Planet is delighted to announce the arrival of Water Babies, water-filled dolls that replicate the warmth, weight and feel of a real baby. These battery-free babies do not rely on technology or tricks – they do not walk or talk; instead they appeal to the basic desires of young girls by offering a warm, cuddly doll to care for and love.

Water Babies first came to life when a Midwest banker by the name of Dan Lauer passionately pursued his dream of developing a realistic doll inspired by the ones his sisters would make out of water balloons in the '60s. After years of determination and hard work, he earned a patent on his water-filled dolls and is excited to share his creation with a new generation of young mommies.

“There was nothing out there that came close to delivering on that magical feeling and satisfaction of holding a warm little baby in your arms,” recalls Lauer. “As a parent, when I would fill Water Babies for my daughters, I knew I was handing them a doll they would carry, snuggle and play with in an old-fashioned manner.”

Water Babies come with their own bottle and easy-fill funnel. The funnel allows parents to fill the doll through a leak-resistant valve in the doll’s back. The babies are available in two sizes (9-inch newborn and 13-inch Water Baby), and each size offers three ethnicities: Caucasian, African-American and Hispanic.
