All children love their baby dolls and Madame Alexander has introduced a whole line manufactured with toddlers and preschoolers in mind.
Many of the Madame Alexander cloth dolls are for babies or toddlers ages 1 month and up. Others are designed for preschool ages 36 months and up. They have painted facial features instead of buttons or eyes that could easily be a hazard for children, which alone, makes them a great choice, but they are also adorable!
Children love to snuggle with their babies and they drag them around from place to place with them. There are a lot of different varieties including Charlie Brown and character dolls from the Wizard of Oz. These dolls could easily become your child’s favorite companion.
The really hard part, is choosing which one to give them first!
Holly Hobbie Cloth Doll
18″ Doll ~ For Ages 1 Month and Up
Some dolls are meant to be loved and treasured for a lifetime! The Holly Hobbie doll is definitely a cloth doll that can grow up with your child. When she is an adult, she will treasure her Holly Hobbie doll as a collectible and a childhood keepsake.
This pretty doll is 18″ tall and is wearing the traditional patchwork dress and bonnet so often associated with “Holly Hobbie”. The very best part is that her face is hand painted, which means she can be loved on by a baby or toddler without the concern of a choking hazard from beads or buttons.
Colorful Madame Alexander Cloth Dolls
The Strawberry Shortcake doll and the Rainbow Brite doll are both colorfully dressed dolls that have stood the test of time. They are both still popular today! Not only would these dolls be great gifts for children, but they hold special meaning to a lot of adults as well. As parents, we enjoy being able to give our children a part of our own youth. They may not be the exact same doll, but they definitely hold the memories.
Like most of the Strawberry Shortcake items, this Madame Alexander cloth doll is scented with the smell of strawberries.
Either of these dolls would be safe and playable for children 1 month and up.
Childhood Friends from Books
Children love to be able to hold and love the dolls that are created to replicate the characters in storybooks. As tangible dolls, kids can hold them and snuggle with them while we read their favorite stories to them over and over. These dolls make a wonderful bedtime story companion or a fun playtime friend.
We often think of dolls being for little girls, but little boys love this collection of “dolls” too.
