WHAT ARE DOLLS OF TODAY COMING TO
When I posed the question, "what are dolls of today coming to I was thinking of the evolution of dolls today. I've seen dolls that I would have loved to have had when I was a child, or at the very least had when my daughters were little. I've also seen dolls that I would not let any child I know, even know they exist.
I've heard of a doll that gives birth, dolls that are anatomically correct, scantily clad dolls, and more that the very young could live without. A good portion of these are dolls are advertised for the very young. I'm sure some will disagree with me on my opinion of these dolls. I think the very young need to keep their innocence as long as they can. I'm not advocating the suppressing of knowledge of the facts of life, however some things can wait.
My daughter and I went to Toys R Us and bought my granddaughters two of the most fascinating dolls. They're called "You & Me." We bought the "Too Cute Twins." Now these are talking dolls, however that's not the amazing thing. The amazing thing is that they interact. What I mean is, these dolls actually talk to each other, (as long as they're within five feet of each other). One doll will initiate the conversation and the other will respond, they actually talk as if they're real people, kind of "freaky," but in a fun kind of way. The instructions say they have over 100 phrases. They sing songs, play games, ask for food and make eating and drinking sounds. Of course, they're battery operated, and thank goodness for that, because they can be shut down, when they become irritating. These dolls are wonderful for my granddaughters age group, frankly they are good for my age, too. LOL!
The Dolls and My Granddaughters
The girls are so carried away with these little beauties, secretly, I am too, we play with them for hours on end. Actually, I'm living vicariously through my sweeties, especially with these little dolls. I'm anxious to see what else this brand has to offer. Remember my hub Who is the World's Worst Grandmother, well as that hub says in the end, I'm no longer considered that, thank goodness, I'm having the time of my life, with these little girls and now the little boy. So my knowledge of what's out there in the doll world is being revived, due to the addition of the girls to our family. I have more pictures, take a look.
