When you’re looking to buy dolls for your child, or perhaps a family friend, you have to know what age group you’re looking to buy for – because some of the more advanced dolls won’t be right for little ones.
There are different doll categories like fashion dolls, baby dolls, cloth dolls – and then the accessories for those gifts like dollhouses and cars, pools, clothes and a ton more options!
Cloth dolls are perfect for the littlest tot because they’re safe and soft – so there are no bumps and bruises when your child plays with these. Look for certain cloth dolls to be leading the consumer boards.
The Manhattan Baby Stella Doll is one of the most popular cloth dolls – and it has some wonderful features not usually found in cloth options, such as the magnet sewn in behind her mouth that holds her pacifier in.
Baby dolls that aren’t cloth are always going to be intriguing to toddlers and older children. Both boys and girls like to play with baby dolls – and they have both genders and multiples you can buy, too.
The most popular this year is the Melissa and Doug Jenna doll. She’s easy to clean with a simple wipe down, and you can even remove her clothes for a quick wash.
Jenna sucks her thumbs and pacifier and consumers love how realistic and sweet-smelling she is. Another popular baby doll is the Corolle Mon Premier Calin Charming Pastel Baby Doll, which is poseable like a real baby.
Fashion dolls are the hottest item you can get if your child is past the toddler stage. Monster High dolls are where all the frenzy is this year – and has been for quite awhile now.
The Monster High dolls have different lines, like the Travel Scaris set. The Jinafire Long Doll is the #1 most popular doll in this line right now. She’s fabulous with her green hair and travel accessories. Skelita Calaveras is another most-wished for doll in this particular line.
Barbie sales are actually down a large amount thanks to the increase in Monster High sales.
