He is 15 inches long and for 12 months and up.
Have a peek at these two charmers! Those rosy cheeks got me as soon as I saw them.

Baby Dolls for Boys
This charming baby boy doll is made for cuddling 🙂 He is super sweet and has a bean filled posable body. His eyes close when you lay him down. The face, arms and legs are vinyl and are slightly scented with vanilla. Just letting you know in case you have a child sensitive to smells. He is 12 inches long and for 18 months and up.
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.
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. 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 options available: Asian, African American and Caucasian are all available. They are very realistic looking and anatomically correct. The arms and legs move 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. 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.
Bath Baby Dolls for Boys
They also make boy dolls that can get wet. I think this is great as they can take their doll into the tub to play. You know they are going to love that!
If you want a complete baby doll for boys gift set, this is the one to take a serious look at. For what you get this is an excellent value, I would even go as far as to say it is cheap! I couldn’t believe the number of reviews. This is a very popular boy doll. He comes with a full layette so boys can take care of him and dress him up. 14 inches long and for 2 and up.
Rub a dub dub! What a fun doll. This boy doll is made for the bath. I would have loved having this one. It has soft vanilla scented vinyl. 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. What a great companion for a little boy. 12 inches long and for 18 months and up.
Drink and Wet Baby Doll for Boys
Paul is currently available in two versions. He is a drink-and-wet bath baby who happens to be anatomically correct and comes with a potty seat.
His eyes open and close and he comes with the accessories seen below. Some people are using this to help their boys learn about using the toilet. After giving water in the bottle, when you press his tummy, he goes. He can also be put into the bath. 14 inches long. The one on the right is for 24 months and up. The one on the left is for 3 years and up. I’m not sure why they are rated for different ages.
