Playskool Baby Dolls

The whole point of this page is to talk about the different years of baby dolls from the Playskool My Very Soft Baby Doll series. There is not a lot that I know about it, but I think it's very interesting seeing how the designs change from each year and how similar they are in some areas. Baby and Babysister are both from this series which is why they look so similar. Some of these dolls aren't going to be from this series, but they'll look quite similar to the dolls from it. If you find any photos of any babies from years I could not find anything for then please tell me. If you also find different versions (like a holiday themed one of some kind) of years that I do have then share them with me, too. ALSO! If you have any of these babies then please share photos of them with me by emailing me at nopandalk@gmail.com. I love knowing when other people have the same babies as me.

1990

I like these babies a lot. They all have the same faces as Baby. I would love to have all of these if I ever had the money. I don't like the "boy" one that much. Maybe blue isn't as appealing to me as pink is. I just noticed none of these babies have hair.

1991

I did not find any babies listed for this year.

1992

This baby is very cute, but their outfit seems so out of place. They're a bunny! Babies usually don't dress like that. This one stands out the most. This baby doesn't have the classic frilly bonnet with onesie. I found a Christmas themed one from this year! The outfit is so cute. The face does not look to be any different. I assume that it is the "girl" version since I see another one on the box and the outfits are the same as the 1990 ones, but just with different colors.

1993

Here is the first version of Baby! They have hair now, too! The faces look the similar to the ones from 1990. The black version looks quite different, though. Their eyes are slightly different. The outer corners of the eyes on these dolls seem to end in the middle of the eye instead of near the bottom of the eye. It seems like after this year they went back to the same mold as before for the black version of their babies. I wish the dolls had different faces each year. I think it would be cool if they did. I wanna know why the white version of this baby has green hair. I always thought that was odd because that's not a natural hair color. Maybe they were trying to do blond, but it didn't work out. I really want to know why it's like that. I guess we may never know.

1994

I did not find any babies listed for this year.

1995

Baby comes back! He looks very beautiful!

1996

I like these babies a lot. Their outfits are very cute. The face for the black version looks slightly different than the one from 1993. Their nose doesn't look as wide, their mouth looks different, and their hair doesn't look as clustered at the top of their head like the other one. It seems like they used the same face mold that they did for the white one for the black one like they did with the 1990 one. I wonder why they changed it for the 1993 one. The white version still has that green hair that Baby has. It looks a little more blond than green this time, though. I keep seeing the word "snuzzles" added to their name. There seem to be other dolls and toys that are part of this snuzzles theme which I think is quite interesting.

1997

I did not find any babies listed for this year.

1998

The box is quite different for this one compared to the 1993 one. I assume the box designs change each year. I looked at this for a few seconds and started crying and then went to hug my children. Baby used to look like this! He used to be in a box like this! I can't believe it! Such a perfect baby! All of these babies are so perfect. Their ankles are really getting squeezed. Let them free!

1999

It's Babysister! They changed the hair for the white version. Their hair is blond and curly now. Their eyes are also a lot different, but they're still blue, just a different shade of blue. The eyelashes aren't black anymore and their eyebrows are different. I love this baby a lot! I also like the flower theme, it's so cute. I'm so intrigued by the baby with a white body instead of a pink body. What happened there? I've also noticed that the colors look quite different on the baby on the box than the baby in the box. The Playskool part on the actual baby is round instead of rectangular like on the box. That's so odd. Is there another version of them out there? I would like to know. I wish there was an archive of Playskool toys that I can look through.

2000

Listed as a "My Very Soft Bath Baby Doll." I don't like this baby at all. Their arms and legs not being covered up looks so weird to me. They have the same face as Babysister. The paint splatters on these babies change colors. I wonder why they went with this baby for this year. They're not much of a pleasant baby.

Unknowns

This one is labelled as a "Playskool Puffalump Baby Doll." I'm not so sure what that means, but they look the same as Baby, but the material of their body is different. I wonder why they would want two different versions of this doll. Maybe some kids prefer one material over the other. I've noticed that the dolls that have the same hairstyle as Baby are listed with blond hair. The black one seems to have the same face as the 1993 one. I assume these versions were only available for the 1993 ones. They look so odd.

Extra Thoughts

I wish I had more pictures of the black versions. I wonder if there are any "boy" versions of the other ones since on the boxes for some of them it would use she/her pronouns for the baby. There doesn't look to be any after the 1992 Christmas one and they don't appear on any of the boxes. I like that the boxes change every year.
