As most of our customers know, we always refer to the RealCare Babies as “Babies” and never dolls! We’re not a bunch of potty old dears, there is reasoning behind our insistence!
Dolls are cheap things you can buy from any toy shop and our Babies are expensive and more sophisticated than a lap top. By calling them Babies and taking great care of them when you hold and carry them, you are passing on a message that these educational tools must be looked after and cared for properly, and your students will follow your lead. Calling them dolls fails to get across the essence of the product, and the objectives of what the weekend with a RealCare Baby is all about.
We have had the Babies called many things over the years; robo baby still seems popular! As does cyber doll, electronic baby, fake baby, robo doll, electronic doll, and this summer we had an order for a beeping baby, mmm!
But, they are, and always will be, Babies to us!
And we believe that when we leave the office each evening they all come to life…(oh, yes, we probably are a bit potty)
