Peek-a-boo — I see … cute dolls!

Peekaboos from Madame Alexander combine super snuggly plush with cute, cuddly baby dolls, creating the perfect gift for newborns, infants, and toddlers.

Designed for babies and young children of all ages, Peekaboos are soft-bodied, 12-inch dolls that feature bright, fun colors and a variety of three different skin tones. Each comes dressed in a nonremovable plush outfit with a peek-a-boo hood that kids can pull down over the doll’s face to disguise it like a sloth, llama, or UniCat (a unicorn/cat hybrid).

Each baby doll has a vinyl head featuring a calming, sweet expression. The dolls do not have any hair, so they are perfect for babies and young kids to play with, and parents don’t have to worry about any choking hazards or tangly messes. While the dolls come in multiple styles, they all feature bright purple eyes, adding to the whimsy they each embody.

Madame Alexander is a doll brand known for its quality. Designed in New York, the dolls are made from baby-safe materials and can be hand-washed and air-dried.

Peekaboos really combine so many play patterns into one. Playing a game of peek-a-boo is one of the first games kids learn, helping stimulate their senses and connect with parents. Kids can reenact the fun with the Peekaboos dolls.

The animal themes are also incredibly on-trend with today’s kids, which means Peekaboos will last for years to come. These dolls certainly have security-blanket potential, and will quickly become baby’s favorite thing to snuggle and play with.

It can be difficult to choose between a soft plushy and a baby doll for one of baby’s first gifts, but Peekaboo combines them both in a fun, innovative way.
