The doll itself is sturdier than you might expect for a soft-bodied doll with a cute face, and an outfit comprised of nappy, t-shirt and bib. The fabric is soft and very tactile, and it’s even anatomically correct – although this is something I found far more noteworthy to adults than kids, who took it completely in their stride.

We liked: Flea liked dressing and undressing the doll – easy thanks to the simple velcro fastenings. The doll also sucks its thumb, and has lots of character. From a parents’ perspective, I was pleased to find this range of dolls can be purchased along with a really wide range of outfits and accessories, each designed to help children learn about different sorts of fastenings and fabrics – from my view, it extends the play possibilities and makes for a great imaginary toy.

We weren’t keen: I would say Flea, at 5, is perhaps a little old for the Rubens Barn dolls – although she played with the doll, I’m not sure she would get enough play out of it to justify spending £44 on it. That said if you have a toddler in need of a new companion, this Rubens Farm doll makes a great investment buy, and you’ll get years of fun out of it.

Overall: The Rubens Farm doll is fantastic quality and full of character – we’ve passed our doll on to a younger friend who absolutely adores playing with the doll, nursing it, dressing it, and walking it around the town. I’m confident she’ll still be playing with it next Christmas!
