Little Prince!  This little guy is all about cuteness. Even the little frog on his striped outfit is cute! His clothes are removable so your little boy can dress him up. The bottle fits in his mouth as does his thumb.

There are mixed feelings about the powder scented vinyl. Some think it is way too strong, others don’t mention it at all so I am guessing it didn’t bother them and others still like it.  He is a charmer for sure. 13 inches long and for ages 1 and up.

Adora Playtime Collection Beary Blue 13 Soft Baby Doll with
This is Little Beary Blue 🙂 Just look at that adorable face and cute hat and outfit!See the info above in Little Prince, as he is made by the same company and has the same information just a different outfit and look.  13 inches long for ages 1 and up.

These three little fellows come with accessories including a reusable cloth diaper, realistic hospital ID bracelet (which is removable in case you had a home birth), hospital belly button gauze, and birth certificate.

I like that this series of dolls has a few different ethnic options with different skin tones available: Asian, African American and Caucasian are all available. They are very life-like and realistic looking and anatomically correct. The arms and legs move so they can be posed as well.

This series has very nice reviews. 14 inches long and for ages 2 and up.

It took quite a while to find a nice Hispanic baby boy doll with good reviews but I finally did. Super cheap!

While smaller than some of the other dolls, it is very nice and comes with a one piece outfit and hat. Both are removable.  Super cute, isn’t he? He is 11 inches tall and is for 18 months and up.

He is able to go into the bathtub, the swimming pool and sea water. There is a tab on the back so you can hang him to dry.

This is my top pick for a toddler boy baby doll. He would make a nice friend for him to carry around and play with. His outfit with the whale is super cute, isn’t it?!

What a great companion for a little boy. 12 inches long and for 18 months and up.

He can also be put into the bath. 14 inches long. 24 months and up.

My grandson is two years old and had never really shown interest in doll but he was sick recently and would wipe his plush puppy's nose so I think it's about time. I raised two daughters so I'm not certain, would you recommend starting with a soft or more realistic (anatomically correct) baby?

Hi Suzanne,

Good question! You could go either way. It usually comes down to what you think your grandson would like the most. If he likes to hug and cuddle a doll then perhaps the soft one would be a good choice. If you think he is more interested in dressing and playing with the doll the more realistic ones may be better because some come with removable clothing and are able to sit up better than the soft dolls. I hope this helps a bit. Overall, if it were me, I would likely get a more realistic one because I think he would play with it for a longer span of time.

Best wishes on your choice! Thank you for stopping by.

My grandpa always would say "every kid should have a baby doll." My son asked for a baby doll when he was 3 and loved his BeeBee

Marie, Yes, that is what I love about it as well. Play does help children learn so much.

Both of my boys have "fathered" dolls at some time. They learn to take care of others who are smaller than them with doll play.
