The BlaBla Kids Doll Could Not Have Arrived At A Better Time...

Our youngest child is teething right now! He's not just teething a little, but currently has four budding teeth trying to push thru his gums...and is in pretty rough shape over it. These should be the last four teeth that we will be getting in for some time. His poor nose (though I know is not related if you ask any physician) is raw from running and I've been giving him ibprofen to help him deal with the pain. POOR GUY!

There is nothing a mommy likes least, than to see her baby in such writhing pain and not be able to do much about it. If only there was something we could give them to magically take every pain they ever feel away...it'd make our job as a mom a much easier one. But since we can't, we have to find some alternatives...to help pacify the problems.

Now, when I was first contacted by this company...I'll be completely honest...I wasn't sure what I would think about the product they were sending us (free of charge) to try out. I think they have some down right adorable clothes, blankets, accessories, etc. But the product they chose to have reviewed was their Inoo-Lala Boogaloos Doll. "Hmmm",...I thought to myself..."this might be very interesting!" I was curious how my kids would react to the doll and what they would do with it when they actually were able to play with it. It's like nothing they have ever seen before.
So, when I pulled it out of the box, I was impressed by the squishy factor that it offered. I just wanted to squeeze it. It was made out of soft 100% cotton and just seemed loveable.
So my first test was on my 3 year old. I handed it to her and she threw it down. I, playing funny, said, "don't do that to my Inoo-lala." The name seemed funny to her and since I was doing it with a playful tone, she picked it back up and threw it down again. Laughing, this time we continued to play this back and forth game until she finally started to squeeze it and hug it and even lay on it. I think she really likes it! She almost seemed comforted by it in some way! I like that a lot!

The real test came when the "little guy" woke up from his nap. I was curious what he would think. At first, he didn't seem to interested in him...and then, after a few minutes...he really warmed up to it (he was snuggling all over it). So much so, that he was carrying it all around the house! He even took it up the stairs with him! When we left to take my daughter to the bus stop, he wanted to bring it and cuddled right now with it as we left. It seemed consoling to him as well! And like I said in the title...this couldn't have come at a better time...just when he needed something to cuddle with and help him take his focus off his teething pain.

Now, I know that not every kid will have this EXACT reaction to this toy. However, both my younger kids (and myself) wanted to squeeze and cuddle this Inoo-Lala BlaBla Kids doll. There is just something about it! Curious how your child will react? Want the opportunity to find out?

(1) Lucky Winner will get to bring Inoo-Lala into your home, just in time for the holidays! This might make the perfect holiday gift for someone on your list.
