Lifelike Dolls - the Perfect Baby Doll
Searching for the perfect baby doll? If you have a little girl on your Christmas or birthday list, you’ll be bombarded with toys for girls. Girls toys run the gamut, from games to fashion dolls to tea sets. Of course, in today’s society, little girls play with practically everything little boys play with. There are, however, a few toys that girls seem drawn to, and one such toy is the baby doll. Just about every little girl loves baby dolls! Some of the best toy baby dolls available are interactive baby dolls.
What are Interactive Baby Dolls?
Interactive baby dolls are very life like dolls. These realistic dolls do all sorts of things, just like a real baby would do. Some laugh, some eat and drink, and some wave. Most of the realistic dolls talk or cry, too. Some even poop and pee! Now that’s a life like doll! My granddaughter has a life like baby doll that can actually swim. Lexi sometimes puts it in the pool with us, and the baby doll “swims” all around the pool, delighting the kids swimming with us.
Why a Realistic Baby Doll?
One reason to buy realistic dolls other than other types of dolls is that kids love them! Why do kids love realistic dolls so much? Think back to when you were a kid. Weren’t interactive toys a lot more fun? There’s only so much you can do with baby dolls or other types of dolls that just sit there or lie there. Sure, these baby dolls are snuggly and cute, but they’re not much like a real baby. And most little girls want a toy baby doll so that they can play “mommy.”
Life like dolls give children an excellent opportunity for role playing. They can assume the role of mommy, big sister, or a babysitter. The lifelike dolls really stimulate the imagination and can help increase creativity in young children.
Another advantage of lifelike dolls is that they’re a great teaching toy. An interactive baby doll helps instill a sense of responsibility in young children. Lifelike dolls also give kids a chance to practice nurturing. Many psychologists believe that playing with a toy baby doll is one reason girls usually grow up to be more nurturing than do little boys. I don’t know if that’s true – I’m not a psychologist. I am a retired teacher, however, and I do know that interactive baby dolls can be used as teaching tools.
Buy interactive baby dolls and realistic dolls
Where to buy life like dolls? You can find interactive baby dolls and realistic dolls at toy stores and in the toy department at Walmart, Kmart, Target, and other retail giants. The problem here is that you won't have a large choice of dolls. If you wait until December to shop for toy baby dolls, you'll often find the shelves bare. I know whereof I speak - I have three granddaughters and reared three girls of my own, and they all love and loved toy baby dolls.
The best place to shop for baby dolls, especially life like dolls, is online. You'll find a huge selection, and prices are often lower than you'd find in actual stores.
