If your child loves their doll more than anything, the right accessories make playtime even more fun. Today you can get just about everything you’d get for a real baby, from furniture to feeding accessories, so your kid can indulge in hours of pretend play.
Here, some of the best options for baby doll accessories on the market.
For the ultimate play set all in one bundle, look to this affordable ten-piece find. It’s a great introductory product, as it comes with everything your child needs to get started, from the 13-inch soft baby doll itself, to coordinating outfits, to feeding and changing accessories, to an umbrella-style stroller, and more. Though a great entry level set, it’s one that’s sure to go the distance, as it’s suitable for kids ages 2 all the way through 11.
When it comes to strollers, chances are your child will be most happy with something that looks just like the real thing. This one looks remarkably similar to many of the top parental options on the market, right down to the shape, added features (like a deep storage basket and double wheels on all four legs for added stability), and sharp navy hue. It even collapses flat, so your child can more easily take their baby doll wherever they go.
If your baby takes their own baby wherever your family goes, reinforce the importance of safety with a car seat for the doll. This one looks just like a standard infant car seat, complete with the five-point harness, and even locks into the car via a seatbelt or LATCH system to keep dolls 12 to 20 inches safe and secure. And, just like the real thing, the carrier clicks off of the base, so you can tote the baby doll into the store without wrangling the entire thing.
These “magic” baby bottles make feeding dolls seem as life-like as possible, since the liquid seems to disappear as baby eats. Each package comes with two bottles—one filled with milk and one filled with juice—so your child has options when it comes to mealtime for their doll. As an added bonus, the bottles are colorfully decorated and come complete with measurements to more closely resemble the real thing.
For the child on the go, consider a miniature version of the incredibly popular Ergobaby carrier. It straps onto the front or the back just like the real thing does, so your son or daughter can carry their doll (sizes 15 to 18 inches) just about anywhere.
Don’t worry about exact fit, as the carrier has adjustable shoulder straps to ensure a snug fit. It’s also machine-washable, so the inevitable dirt or spills won’t be an issue—even if it becomes the most beloved doll accessory they own.
Just like your own child, every doll needs a place to dine. This sweet wooden high chair from Badger Basket provides the perfect perch for dolls up to 18 inches, plus comes with a few must-have accessories like a bib, a plate, and a spoon. For an added element of fun, this particular doll high chair also comes with PVC letter and shape decals, so your child can personalize their doll’s chair to their heart’s content.
You can get doll clothes—dresses, pants, T-shirts, and even accessories like jewelry and purses—just about anywhere. But American Girl has an incredibly cool service that allows you to personalize clothes for your child's baby doll.
Choose from a wide range of selections, including tops, dresses, tunics and leggings, and sports outfits. Then, your child can play the part of fashion designer, selecting colors, logos, motifs, and more for their doll's apparel. The best part? Seeing their very own design show up right on your doorstep.
While a cradle or a traditional crib may be the more obvious choice, we love the idea of a pack and play for your child’s baby doll. It’s just as suitable of a place for resting their head, plus has the added benefit of portability. Your child will love the fact that they can fold up the sleeping space to take their baby doll downstairs for a snooze or even on the road if the whole family is traveling. The crib even comes with a blanket and a convenient storage case to making toting as easy as can be.
You won’t find a much more comprehensive set for pretend play than this activity center by beloved toy company Melissa & Doug. The three-sided play space includes just about everything your child needs to give their baby doll the TLC they need. On one side, it has an entire changing table setup complete with a place to stash clothes and other essentials; on the second side, it has a crib complete with a faux window and a mobile; on the third side, it has a kitchen setup complete with a high chair, a refrigerator, and a sink to make feeding time a breeze.
Older children with a love for American Girl dolls will get a kick out of this sleepover set. It comes with everything they need for a fun, exciting night with their best pal—a snack-food-print hooded blanket, two cozy pairs of socks, a mini card game, a mini quiz book, a cookies and milk plate, four cookies, and two strawberry milk glasses with straws. All you’ll need to do? Put on a movie for the two to enjoy together past their usual bedtime.
As their baby doll’s devoted caretaker, your child will delight in receiving this adorable wooden changing table. It not only provides a safe and comfortable place for them to change their doll’s diaper, but it also features a hanging space with a set of hangers and a caddy, as well as a fabric bin set on a shelf for clothes and other baby essentials.
Though specifically manufactured for Adora dolls, this diaper bag is a must-have accessory for any doll parent—especially one that’s as busy as your child is. The on-trend chevron gray and turquoise bag is suitable for both boys and girls. But more importantly, it comes with everything you need for a quick change: a changing pad and two doll diapers. And because every parent knows how messy changes can be, the diaper bag is also 100 percent machine-washable to keep things nice and sanitary at all times.
