Wicked Cool Toys unveiled its new tech-infused Cabbage Patch Kid at US Toy Fair.

Named CPK Baby So Real, the 14" doll boasts animated LCD eyes that open, close and look around as well as interactive baby sounds and random reactions.

Baby So Real also has sensors for peek-a-boo and tickle play, feeding from a special bottle, burping, diaper changing, and rocking to sleep. If the doll develops a fever, youngsters can calm the red cheeks by administering medicine from a magical spoon. 

The new tech infused doll also has its own free app that allows a phone or tablet to simulate a baby monitor. The online mode allows users to see the virtual nursery where kids can play with or the baby, as well as play games, watch video clips and earn baby points for additional virtual accessories and new features.

Baby So Real comes with a fully removable outfit and diaper, a special interactive bottle and medicine spoon, birth certificate and adoption papers and a free baby monitor style app for additional virtual play. 

Retailing at $99.99, CPK Baby So Real is set to hit shelves in autumn 2016.
