My 4-year-old daughter had been asking for a Baby Alive doll for several months before Christmas. We had planned on getting her one and then we found out Wal-Mart had a special price on it so we jumped right on it! The baby does indeed eat and drink and does indeed use the potty and it ain't purty but my baby girl loved it!!! The only thing that I do not like about it is the extensive cleaning the baby needs after you give it food or drink. You must ensure that the tubing from the mouth to the nether regions is completely clear of food so that it does not harden and become clogged because then you are pretty much outta luck! However, I knew that I was going to be essentially adopting another child when we bought this for my daughter so it was expected. One recommendation that I would give, though I am sure the company would not appreciate it, is when we purchased the doll I could not find the Baby Alive diapers to go along with it, so we bought preemie diapers. When we first fed the doll, there was a "situation" in the diaper region because it is recommended that you give the doll food and juice at the same time, too much for those doll diapers to handle. Since then, if we are feeding the doll we diaper her in a real diaper so that we don't have that problem again and it has worked fine for us.
