Cicciobello is an Italian doll produced by Giochi Preziosi. Cicciobello resembles a male few month-old baby, thus enabling children to learn through play to become familiar with the job of motherhood. The doll drinks from his bunny-shaped feeding bottle, sucks his pacifier and cries when it is taken out.
Created in 1962 by Gervasio Chiari (founder of the Sebino doll factory), Cicciobello has been established as a symbol for generations of Italian children, so much to be subsequently produced in numerous variations. The doll still enjoys fame and dissemination.
It is also manufactured in the UK by Flair Leisure Products.
