Our vacations almost always include water, which isn't that surprising considering we're literally surrounded by water here in the Pacific Northwest. The one problem with spending so much time at the beach and lake is that there are certain things that just aren't water-friendly, like electronics and toys with small parts. Thank goodness that Corolle dolls, which are one of my kids absolute favorite toys, are water-ready and perfect for summertime fun.Since the kids can't go on vacation without bringing a baby, we love the soft bodied Bébé Bath Baby Dolls that can go in the water for playtime fun, and then go right into the bath with your kiddo when it's time to wash up.
The kiddos were crazy excited to get three new water babies this year, just in time for all of our adventures.For our first outing, the kiddos dressed them in some of our Corolle fashions and took them out for a family day at Country Village.I love that I didn't have to worry about wayward water and mud taking out a favorite baby since my kids manage to find water and dirt everywhere we go. Even playground dirt doesn't scare me.For vacation, you can simply add in some Corolle water and sand accessories and you have all the makings of all-day play and then awesome baby snuggles into the evening. Corolle flippers, rubber duckies, and more encourage your little one to put their faces in the water and learn the basics of swimming, which is why we've taken our beloved Bébé Bath Doll on vacation since 2011. After so many years of love, I am absolutely dreading the day that our Corolle babies no longer travel with us. Thankfully, I don't see that stopping anytime soon now that all the kids share in the Corolle love. For now, I'm going to be really glad that even everyday adventures with my three are so much more exciting with their beloved babies by their side. I can relax knowing that a little bath can bring their beloved Bébé back to new should the worst happen. This little guy was especially excited about his new bath baby boy doll so he can actually take a baby out of the house again. He still has a crazy amount of love for his Calin Sky doll that has a place of honor in his room on his bed, but I admit that I'm paranoid we would lose him so he's been designated a "house baby". No new Calin Sky could ever be passed off as beloved "baby Knox", so I just won't take any chances.The new Mon Premier Bébé Bath boy doll was the perfect solution for him and his propensity for active play, while still being super snuggly just like his Calin baby.Of course, the girls also love their new babies that can handle all of their adventures, including days filled with shopping and play. As crazy at it may seem considering the love we have for Corolle, this was our little one's first Corolle doll of her own. She no longer has to steal babies from her siblings, and for that we're all so incredibly glad. She even thought ahead and got herself a "doll sitter" for when she got tired of carrying around her doll during our day out.
