When I saw the Baby Alive African American version I was totally excited about purchasing it for my niece. I remember receiving it as a child in the Caucasian version and played with it at all times. I loved changing its diaper, feeding it with the imitation baby food it brought. I remember having to change its diaper because it acted just like a baby would after being fed and it would wet the diaper. Therefore, when I had the ability of paying the it forward as they would say to a child, it was priceless for me to see the happy look on my niece's face. What I like the mist about this doll is that it helps teach some of the responsibilities that come with giving a baby and which hopefully deter a young gril from wanting a real one at a young age.
