If you are anything like me, you are still looking for that one perfect present for your toddler to unwrap this Christmas morning. While there are so many different high-tech options with lights, batteries, and action, I've found that sometimes the best toys are those that are simple. Simplicity breeds creativity, or so I've been told. While the baby doll genre has come a long way since my youth, I've noticed that when I'm shopping for my daughter, I'm drawn more to the sweet dolls with cute faces and not many bells or whistles to speak of. Honestly - many baby dolls on the market today are kind of scary!
I'm really loving the Rosy Cheeks Baby Dolls from North American Bear Company. These dolls have the sweetest embroidered faces and adorable "outie" belly buttons. The Rosy Cheeks baby dolls are 15 inches tall, and are the perfect size for toddlers to hug and squeeze.
Another thing that makes these dolls stand out is that they are made of super soft velour, not hard plastic or vinyl. The baby boy wears a removable cotton jersey shirt and fleece diaper (the beanie is not removable). Each doll also wears a hospital i.d. bracelet that can be personalized with the baby's date of birth. This feature could make these dolls the perfect choice for a young child that is going to become an older sibling.
These dolls also have older "siblings." There is a line of Rosy Cheeks Big Sister dolls available for purchase from North American Bear Company. From now until December 14, customers can purchase any one of the Rosy Cheeks Big Sister dolls ($32) and receive two FREE outfits! Visit 8moms.com for this fantastic deal.
These dolls are a great choice for little girls AND little boys. In our society, we've somehow decided that boys are not "allowed" to play with dolls, and that little girls should only play with girl dolls. This upsets me greatly. My nephew loves to play with his sister's dolls, so why should he not have a doll of his own? Dolls teach children how to be gentle, empathetic, and affectionate - all traits that either gender can benefit from developing.
