    Default Help me buy a doll!

    So DD is 10mo and I have bought her a little pram/walkie thing for Xmas (I'm soo excited btw!) but can't choose a doll to go with it! She's not a cuddly baby and doesn't really play with her teddies, but I'm hoping she will like a nice doll.
    Which dolls did your DD love and where can I find them? (I'm in the desert so shops are a little limited, missing my malls lol!)

    I like these "lots to cuddle" babies - there are quite a few different ones, and not just in pink for once! I buy them for my nephews and boy babies. The have a soft body, but a solid head, hands and feet. Life-like without being freaky! They are available at Target and I'm sure other places too, and are well priced. If you do a google Images search you will see what I mean..I love the bath ones too...

    My daughter got given a baby born for her first Christmas, she was about 8 months then. It wasn't one of the big baby borns, it was a smaller one. Soft body with the plastic hands feet and head. Not sure if they still sell them now (this was 4 years ago!), I imagine they would?

    This is my fav 'store bought' doll She's nice and small, and when you push the bottle to her mouth it makes cute little drinking noises. She's machine washable and just really pretty. I've seen her at Kmart before. Also Mr Toys or Myer,

    The other thing you can do is get a handmade one, they come in all different sizes, but they tend to be a bit more costly (but worth it) and the ones in high demand might not be an option to have it to you before Christmas.

    This is the handmade doll I bought for DD (2yrs). She was $60 and is only about 17cm tall (tiny!) so perfect for little hands and imaginations

    Thanks ladies! I like the look of the baby born, DD will probably drop the doll and play with the bottle though lol.

    If you can go online, alimrose do the sweetest dolls. My daughter has one and loves it, so easy for her to hold.

    Cabbage patch are an oldie and goodie.

    Australian girl doll? Not really a baby doll.

    I can't remember the brand but kmart had some really good baby dolls. They didn't look weird, with the vinyl hands, feet and head and a cloth body. They don't make noise, and they seem to fit all toy prams and stuff.

    Target have fabric dolls which are lovely too.

    For that 'special' doll, I can't go past a Waldorf doll, all natural fibres, cuddly, lovely dolls. DD has quite a collection now.
