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.
Best Set: Kid Connection Baby Doll Stroller Set
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.
Best Stroller: The New York Doll Collection My First Doll Stroller
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.
Best Car Seat: Joovy Doll Toy Car Seat
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.
Best Bottle: Toysmith My Sweet Baby Magic Baby Bottles
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.
Best Carrier: Ergobaby Original Baby Doll Carrier
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.
Best High Chair: Badger Basket Doll High Chair
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.
Best Doll Clothes: American Girl Design Your Own
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.
Best Play Set: Melissa & Doug Baby Care Activity Center
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.
Best for American Girls: American Girl Double the Fun Sleepover Set
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.
Best for Adora Dolls: Adora Zig Zag Diaper Bag
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.
