While Spin Master gears up for a potential repeat of their 2016 success with the debut of Hatchimals Surprise this October, the Canadian toymaker has another interactive toy that just might take the crown for 2017's Hottest Holiday Toy. Luvabella™ and Luvabeau™ are designed to be "the most interactive and lifelike baby dolls ever," packed "with so many real baby surprises to discover, kids will be continuously amazed." An official selection of THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine's 2017 Holiday Wish Guide™ (launching soon), we've been going hands-on with these dolls for a little while now, and today this official announcement has been revealed. I will say this: If you want to buy a Luvabella or Luvabeau for your child, don't pass them up when you see them in stores. I've seen the magic first-hand...

"We've taken classic doll play to a whole new level, allowing children to fully immerse themselves in the imaginative world of nurturing," said Nancy Zwiers, Chief Marketing Officer of Spin Master. "Most baby dolls can do one thing, while Luvabella has hundreds of unique lifelike responses, making her irresistible to everyone who has experienced her realism and interactivity first hand…it's beautiful to see."

From Spin Master: The first doll of its kind, Luvabella is a technological breakthrough with hundreds of lifelike expressions and interactive responses based on advanced animatronic technology. Both Luvabella and Luvabeau behave like real babies. Tickle Luvabella's tummy and she'll giggle. Feed her with her spoon and she'll start to chew. Cover Luvabeau's eyes and he'll play peek-a-boo. Give him his lamby toy and he'll give it a kiss. Like real babies, Luvabella and Luvabeau are never predictable but always adorable. The dolls' realistic facial expressions, unpredictable responses and ability to say over 100 words inspired tech reviewer Gizmodo to call Luvabella "a quantum leap when it comes to interactive toy babies."

Luvabella is available in three skin tones and Luvabeau is her brother. The dolls are so lifelike and easy to love, they're great preparation for children waiting to welcome a new sibling into the family.

Luvabella's adorable face and surprising reactions appeals to both girls and boys in a wide age range, from toddlers to young school-aged children (recommended for children 4+). Luvabella (MSRP: $99.99) is hitting stores now, and will be widely available early October, right in time for holiday gift buying. Luvabeau is available exclusively at Toys "R" Us. Please check in with your favorite retailer for availability as product is continuously hitting shelves.
