My daughter loves her doll and likes to give her kisses. She is now 1, but was 9 months old when she first received the doll. At first, she only wanted to play with the pacified. I think it's because it was so easy for her to hold. Now she's enjoying the doll more and more. I like that the doll is soft all around, because my daughter tends to waive her toys around and sometimes can hit herself with the toys. This toy is great for young babies/toddlers. The only thing that was dissapointing was the magnet in her mouth shows through the fabric a bit, which takes away from her cute face. But that is not really a big deal in the end. She's very cute, and I can't wait for my daughter to play with her more as she grows so that I can get her some Stella doll accessories!
