Dolls are just as popular if not more popular among kids than action figures, especially among young girls. Dolls have been around since ancient times, allowing kids to make up their own stories and use their imagination.
Even in late 2017, dolls are still very popular among little girls, making them great Christmas gifts. The easiest go-to doll is any of the Barbie dolls. There are tons of different kinds of Barbie dolls available, with accessories that let your kid customise them just about however they want to.
You can get Barbie’s with all kinds of different fantasy themes, like mermaids and fairies, as well as real life themes such as weddings and careers. For example, your kid might want to grow up to be a doctor one day.
There’s a Barbie playset that dresses her up like a doctor, complete with scrubs, a stethoscope, a table, and two babies to care for. You can get all kinds of outfits for all kinds of careers, from fashion model to firefighter to pilot.
There are also tons of Barbie accessories available, such as the Barbie convertible. Your kid can pretend that they’re driving Barbie around from her job to her house, and it even comes with seatbelts to teach your kids proper driving safety. You can also get SUVs, Campers, and even an airplane.
Of course, Barbie’s aren’t the only dolls out there. One of the most popular kinds of dolls out there is the baby doll. The La Baby from JC Toys is a great example, because it’s light, small, and comes in various skin tones.
You can get little bottles that the doll can hold on to, which simulates feeding a baby in real life. You can also get strollers so your kid can take them around outside. These dolls can teach your kids compassion and nurturing, and can prepare them for how to hold a baby for real.
One of the more advanced baby dolls on the market is the Baby Alive series. The Baby Alive dolls will all actually eat, use their nappies, talk, and in some dolls, move and crawl around.
For some of the dolls, the food is reusable, but if your child loses it, you can always get more. You can also get your kid replacement packs of nappies, so they can keep playing with their Baby Alive.
