Dolls for Boys
Don’t you just love how nurturing little boys are? By getting them dolls to play with you are providing them with an experience to help them grow. They can be so gentle and loving with their dolls. Boys enjoy taking care of baby dolls in just the same ways girls do. They often gravitate toward them.
Baby Dolls for Boys
Soft, sweet and wearing a dino onesie this little guy is great for young boys. The First Baby Boy Doll won’t disappoint and bonus, it is washable. Very reasonably priced.
If you are looking for a doll for a boy, this plush award winning baby boy doll has a lot of very positive reviews. He is sweet and cute with a touch of red on the cheeks, blonde hair and an embroidered face. His top and diaper come off for dressing. He is 15 inches tall and comes from North American Bear Company.
Boy Dolls That Can Go In the Tub
They also make dolls for boys that can get wet. I think this is great as they can take their doll into the tub to play.
Rub a dub dub! What a fun doll. This Mon Premier Bebe Bath Boy Doll is made for the bath. I would have loved having this one. Soft vanilla scented vinyl doll which has a tab on the back so you can hang him to dry. What a great companion for a little boy. (18M & up)
Paul is a 14 inch Drink-and-Wet Bath Baby who happens to be anatomically correct and comes with a potty seat. He can also go into the bath. This is another award winning boy doll.
This 14 inch La Newborn Baby Boy doll is lifelike and oh so cute. He has nice touches such as a hospital bracelet which is included in the 8-piece layette that comes with the doll so boys can dress him up. He can get wet and go into the bathtub. He also comes with a birth certificate.
Larger Boy Dolls
The Manhattan Toy Company made a line of boy dolls called Boysterous Boys. These dolls are quite small, only about 7-8 inches long. I am including them because I think they make a nice take-along doll for boys and come in sports themes which boys may like. They have bendable arms and legs and magnets on hands and feet so you can attach accessories (included.) You can also get a couple and mix and match the sports items. See: Halfpipe Pete and Slap Shot Sam.
Manhattan Toy Company just released a new boy doll. His name is Logan and he is 13 inches tall. He comes with jeans and sneakers. This is from their Groovy dolls line. This larger boy doll is nice for those looking for something other than a baby boy doll. He would be great for older boys.
I am in love with this cute Dress Up Pirate Doll It has buttons, snaps and zippers and ties for dress up practice and it is super neat. Gotta love the parrot!
There are other dolls available and some of them look great but . . . they are collector dolls, not dolls for playing with. All of the dolls above can be used for play. Check the age recommendations for the dolls as some have small parts. Oh my, what I went through trying to find a boy doll. It was hard to find just what I wanted.
Playing with dolls is not a girly thing, it is a human thing. Boys are naturally loving and really enjoy themselves while playing with dolls. They are learning and having fun.
Take some time to look through the dolls here and choose a doll for your special boy. Encourage him to show the soft, gentle, loving side of boyhood.
