A baby doll is a great for your little one to start understanding themselves and the world around them. Dolls are great for any child – boys and girls! Baby dolls offer little ones the opportunity to develop their cognitive, fine motor, and self-help skills. There is a great article here on why role play with baby dolls is so important. Here is my list of the top 10 Best Baby Dolls available at the moment.

In your opinion, what are the best baby dolls?

1. Melissa & Doug Mine to Love Jenna Soft Body Baby Doll

Best Baby Dolls Jenna

At 31 centimetres long, Jenna is the perfect size for toddlers 18 months and older to hug, cuddle, and care for. She has moulded plastic hair and wipe-clean arms, legs, and face. Jenna closes her bright blue eyes as she is rocked to sleep and when she lies down, and opens them when she is picked up. Young mommies and daddies can comfort Jenna by helping her to suck her thumb or the included pacifier. Her beautifully stitched pink romper and matching infant bonnet are removable. Quality craftsmanship ensures endless hours of pretend play and a baby doll that will remain a favourite for years to come.

5. Lamaze My First Doll Maisie

Best Baby Dolls - Lamaze

My First Doll Maisie from Lamaze is a gorgeously soft first dolly for infants. Suitable from birth, as you would expect from a Lamaze item, Maisie has lots of different textures and patterns for baby to discover including ribbons in her hat and soft crinkly beans in her feet. To teach hand to eye coordination there is a fun crinkle bib which can easily be popped on and off Maisie. She also has a velcro nappy flap for added role-play fun. I liked this doll because of the bright colours and the different developmental aspects it includes for young children.
