Silver Cross Susie Doll Review

Walking the Baby

Back in November, Eliza was sent the Silver Cross Pioneer Dolls Pram to review.

It became an instant hit and she would often take her Luvabella doll for a stroll to the park or to pick her little brother up from Playball after school.

Now Silver Cross have launched a new doll to go with their range of prams – Susie®, who can recognise her own pram and giggles, cries, sleeps and feeds!

Silver Cross Susie

In the box with Susie® is a sensor box which requires 3 x AA batteries. This then fits into a special pocket underside the Silver Cross 5 in 1 Pioneer dolls pram so that it can sense when the doll is near.

Susie® will tell you she wants to go for a walk when she is close to her pram and cry and want to go back in it if you take her out.

She even snores when she falls asleep in her pram.

Susie Pram

Without the pram, Susie® is still an interactive doll who can giggle, cry and talk. When she is fed with her bottle she will tell you if she has had enough or wants more and she can sometimes get tummy ache which can be rubbed better and likes to be tickled under her arms.

I do have an issue with Susie® though. She has no volume control and is quite loud and repetitive, which can get annoying – even for Eliza.

Her body is hard plastic, with fabric shoulders and hip joints so she is not especially cuddly, although her babygro is padded which makes her nicer to handle and her lips are painted bright pink which makes it look like she is wearing lipstick.

I think the doll is better suited to pre-schoolers, as her functions are fairly basic, but they do encourage role-play and interaction.

Susie® has an RRP of £44.99 and is available from all good toy stores.

    I love how realistic these prams look and they are exactly miniature versions of the real thing. My boys love pushing their dolls in prams and this one looks awesome

  2. Oh I see what you mean! She does look like she’s wearing lipstick which is a bit weird… But quite cute that she interacts with the pram – makes her feel a bit more real I’m sure.

  3. She sounds like a good doll. However, like you, I have issues with toys without volume control. If it gets too much we have the “battery monster” in our house!

  4. What a cute doll with the pram. My daughter would love to play Mummy with this.

  5. Thats a really realistic pram, I’ve got an older version at home which I’ve had for years and love playing with dolls. Great functionality with the doll too!

    What a beautiful pushchair and lovely doll too. I am sure my niece would love it! 🙂

  7. Laura Dove says:

    Oh this is super cute! My girls love baby dolls too although we’ve never seen this one before! Sounds fab!

  8. Holly has Susie and she loves it and she is 3 years old. She couldn’t believe it when she started to react to her pram!

  9. oh wow, Susie is awesome! My son got his first doll few days ago, and he is totally obsessed with it. Susie may be our next choice x

  10. I imagine that Susie is a wonderful playmate for lots of little girls and boys. Great idea to have the interaction with the pram, and the functions that make her more “real”. Shame she doesn’t have a volume control.

  11. This is so clever with the sensors, I would have absolutely loved something like this when I was a kid x
