First Dolls for Girls: Safe, Soft and Cuddly

For the Pattycake Doll Company to present dolls as a 'Girl's First Doll' on this page it has to meet three criteria: 

It has to be Safety Rated for a Newborn.

It has to be an actual doll as opposed to 'like a doll.' Not a stuffed animal, not a musical plush, not a soother, but a doll!

And it has to be of some benefit to the baby like bright colors and patterns, built in rattles and crinklies, or multiple textures to stimulate the senses of sight, sound or touch.
