How to choose the ideal doll? We do not choose a toy as we would choose lego to collect. Personally, when I was a young woman, it didn't matter to me that none of my dolls looked like me, that they were different shapes and sizes. To me, each one was a person and was very, very unique. I am reminded of this every time I see the boys and women in our stores playing with the dolls. There is nothing like a baby doll to reveal our beautiful nurturing side.
Choosing the Best Doll for Your Child
However, how do you choose the perfect doll for your child? A good rule of thumb is that the length of the doll should not exceed the length of your child's arm, measured from the elbow to the fingertips, so that it is easy to cradle. Whether it's a boy or a girl, drinks or talk, your child will find a unique and special way to relate to it.
Actually, except for helping with potty training, I prefer dolls that don't "do" anything. That said, we live in an overcrowded modern world filled with lots of external stimulation, so if a child prefers a doll that can speak in four languages, you can embrace that too. Below are some of our favorite dolls for young girls, but there are also dolls for children. We like the miniature Minirêves variety from Corolle. They are machine washable. Who likes them? Young children and people looking for a quality, safe, develop-with-me toy for a child.
