I have 2 girls so to say that dolls are a part of our life would be highly redundant. As much as I am not a fan of many of the new toys out there (some of it may be because they don’t hold such a memory to me as dolls) dolls have hands down been my favorite toy ever. When I had kids and we had playdates and many of my friends had little boys the topic of boys playing with dolls propped up several times.
Little boys loved pushing my girls strollers and everyone traded stories about how some dads were not keen on their son pushing strollers (read my post on No way is my son pushing a stroller), to grandparents unhappy that the boys wanting a doll-house. My best friend, who has the most open mind ever on this subject, made a wonderful comment that has stuck with me these past few years. She said she did not mind her boy playing with strollers or dolls but would be great to have non pink/girly colors for strollers and would be great to have boy dolls. Actually I heard that request several times over and I wondered if there was some reason toy manufacturers did not think of this.
While I was at the Time To Play event I came across Corolle dolls and several wonderful things caught my eye. The quality was amazing but the fact that they had multicultural dolls and boy dolls in their huge range of dolls. While it may be tough to compete with the highly electronic age and with delivering a doll without all the theatrics, these dolls have managed to to keep their own.
They even have strollers in more neutral colors and designs. I got to take a look at both of these products and while there is no song and dance about them, the simplicity stands out. Although a boy doll (see Suce Pouce Blue, this doll can be for a little girls or boys. Oh, would you believe they have a boy potty doll too? Check out the Paul doll.
This baby can suck his thumb or pacifier and sit up too. Want to win a Suce Pouce Blue doll (valued at $59.95)? Tell me what do you think about the boy doll!
