Fabian Chudziak from Zapf Creation explains that it is not only little girls who enjoy their Baby Born dolls and can mother them lovingly, more and more boys are also enjoying imaginative play with the dolls from Zapf Creation, as they learn emotional play and can also express their own emotions through the dolls.

Baby Born doll now has a name: "Emma"

One innovation concerns the popular Baby Born, which has been on the shelves of toy stores for 30 years, as the classic 43-centimetre baby doll was previously without a name. The Zapf company recently brought out an animation series that can bring children even closer to the baby doll. This was christened Emma. In 2024, the Baby Born doll will finally have a name and will be known as "Emma" from now on. Zapf Creation decided on this name for various reasons, and parents are increasingly using it for their daughters. "Emma" is a name that is known internationally and works in several languages. It is also a classic name that is timeless and just as popular today as it was a few decades ago. With the character from the series and the name for the doll, which can be found on the doll's packaging from now on, a unity is created that can offer young viewers a new approach to their doll.

Cuddly soft teddy as a companion for the Baby Born doll

Also known from the new series is the cute teddy bear, which can now also be found on the shelves of toy stores. The fluffy fellow is not only particularly cuddly and therefore an ideal companion for the little ones, he also has a special feature that will delight many Baby Born fans. The cuddly soft teddy bear, which is very soft and flexible and can therefore be used by children from birth, can wear any of Baby Born's 43 centimeter tall clothes. Its movable body is specially designed so that the cute bear can be dressed in the clothes of the beloved doll without any problems. This means that the plush companion can always be dressed in Baby Born's clothes and given a new look every time.
