Review: Baby Annabell Hospital

Bandage

In light of the current lockdown situation, I have found that the kids are taking part in many more role play activities in the home.

Back in February, both Eliza and Sebastian were hospitalised for the first time and being in that situation was both unfamiliar and stressful for them, especially Sebby and they both still talk about their experience.

We were invited to review the Baby Annabell Hospital, with Baby Alexander and I thought it would be the perfect way to help them act out their experiences.

Baby Annabell Hospital

The Baby Annabell Hospital is really easy to set up, straight from the box.

Baby Annabell Hospital

Simply unfold, pull down the bed, complete with pillow and blanket and the hospital is ready for the little patient.

Baby Annabell Hospital accessories

There are hooks to hang up Baby Annabell’s belongings, or your equipment and cosy bedding to keep Annabell or Alexander warm.

Baby Alexander

The hospital also includes lots of medical accessories to help examine and care for Baby Annabell including a stethoscope, syringe, thermometer, otoscope, bandages, clipboard, sample pot, patient band and even a doctors name badge.

Eliza hospital

What I like about this set is that the thermometer gives a different reading each time, so Eliza has been looking up to see what a normal temperature or a fever is, although it also shows red for high and green for normal for younger children.

Bandage

It is a great set for teaching kids about medicine and hospitals, but my only disappointment is that it is very pink and we would have preferred it to be more gender neutral to keep Sebby more interested in it.

Baby Alexander and Sebby

The Baby Alexander 43cm doll has a soft body, with a velour babygro and an adorable face. He needs 3 x AA batteries to wake him up (not included). He can cry real tears, be rocked to sleep and loves his dummy. Plus he moves his mouth realistically when drinking and makes cute noises to indicate what mood he is in. You can even tickle him and he will laugh.

Baby Alexander is the perfect doll to offer a nurturing relationship between child and baby, whilst developing a real sense of responsibility and of course, is lots of fun!

Eliza and Alexander

Baby Alexander and the Baby Annabell Hospital are available from all good toy shops with an RRP of £49.99 and £59.99 respectively.

    Oh how cute! I remember my little girl with her Baby Annabelle, she adored it. I don’t think I would get away with it with my four year old, but it’s always lovely to see him doing some role play.

  5. This looks like such a good way to help children understand hospitals, especially if its a planned admission. I used to love pretending to be a nurse when I was small and would have adored something like this.

  6. What a great way of teaching little ones about COVID, illness and what the NHS does for the people during this lovely Baby Annabell Hospital

  7. Olivia has this and absolutely loves it, she is always playing with her Baby Annabell and Alexander dolls and the hospital. It’s fab.

  8. My daughter has this and loves, both Baby Annabell and Alexander has visited it, alongside Elsa, Rabit, Barbie among others, its fairly simple but still good to use, right now it’s set up in our front room, though the badge is stored on the bed for some reason lol

    You’re right it would have been nice to be more gender neutral as at the moment it’s so important to teach all kids about hospitals and medical studies x

    Aaahhhh this looks really lovely to use with the dolls. I hadn’t seen this before but know a few children that would love it.

  11. How great is this, my daughter would have loved this when she was little. Such a lovely hospital and accessories to go with it. I am going to look out for this for my Granddaughter x
