Soon after young children start playing with baby dolls, they’ll be ready to add all sorts of baby doll accessories to their collection of toys. One such popular item is a pretend car seat. Not only can these be taken along on rides, but many can also can be rocked on flat surfaces or propped up securely for make-believe feeding times. Since many resemble the real deal so closely, they’re a great way to teach kids about safety and responsibility, as well as to allow them to be just like Mom or Dad.
Joining the mix today is the Little Rose Adjustable, which comes with an eye-catching, hot pink fabric with a cute heart design – and it’s machine washable, so you can keep it looking brand new even after it’s been toted around extensively. Its three-strap lap belt will keep your child’s pretend-baby secure during transport. It accommodates dolls and stuffed animals of up to 18 inches in length. It’s been safety tested and approved for use by kids ages two and above.
Another new addition is the Litti Pritti Carrier, which is great for those who prefer a slightly more muted color scheme and pattern than what's featured in many of the others. It’s made with rounded edges so a child can rock a doll on a flat surface, yet it’s designed not to tip over easily. It comes fully assembled, so kids can just open the box and start playing right away.
Also coming on board is the floral-patterned Adora 217601, which conveniently matches several other products sold by the manufacturer, including a diaper bag and a stroller. The PVC seat can be surface cleaned, and the fabric is machine-washable. It’s both hypoallergenic and BPA-free.
Leaving the selection in this update are the Sophia’s Travel Carrier and the Graco 3 in 1, due to issues with availability. No matter which you choose, make sure to follow the age range guidelines (it varies based on the product), and note that they are only for carrying and securing toys -- and never real live children.
