Looking for the best boy dolls? You might know of a child who is expecting a sibling, maybe a brother, who is searching for a boy baby doll to help them get used to the idea of a new baby in the home? Does a child need a special friend, like a superhero, to travel with on adventures? Is a little girl specifically asking for a boy doll or a boy companion for her American Girl Doll?
It used to be very obvious in the doll aisle at the toy store that most baby dolls were female dolls designed for... little girls to play with. The focus being on cute clothing and playroom accessories. There have been a few boy baby dolls, but not all kids, no matter their gender, want to play with dolls by giving them a hug, feeding them from a bottle, pushing them in a stroller or changing their diapers and clothing.
As children get older into the preschool years, their interests in dolls may change to want a special friend, or a companion, that might look like them in hair, eye and skin color. Not just a toy, but a buddy who they can take on adventures during trips to the grocery store or when as a companion for a long flight on a family vacation. A friend they can share their secrets with, talk to and read stories with after they hop into bed each night.
Many kids love to play with dolls, and this type of play can not and should not be characterized for just one gender. Every child is different and they might play with their dolls a little differently, so having many boy doll options available can help parents and gift givers chose the best companion for their child's interests and individuality.
