    Default Choosing a doll for my 2 year old DS

    I want to buy DS a doll that he can push around in a little stroller (he quite enjoys doing this at play group).

    I am yet to find the right one. I've looked on ebay and...oh my...some of them are seriously ugly and quite scary looking!

    Can you recommend a nice doll that isn't crazy expensive (under $50.00).

    If anyone has bought a doll specifically for their DS I'd love to know which one!

    I found nothing suitable in Kmart, target etc. they only had very very girly toy type dolls.

    I found a great range of plain newborn babies in both sexes in various skin tones in a specialist toy shop, 35 dollars. What state are you in?

    I'm in NSW.

    Sounds like the kind of doll I'm after, a simple tasteful baby doll. Some of the faces on the Kmart dolls...made me shudder.

    I'm in perth so not much help in the end sorry! But hopefully if you find a large educational type toy shop that also supplies to playgroups and the like, they will have something similar?

    I want a doll that I can look in the face and not suspect the evil critter is going to come to life in the middle of the night and feast on my soul...

    Seriously, I think a baby style doll that has a pleasant face would be suitable. But I'm open to suggestions though.

    A boy doll would be kinda cool.
