Well you son may grow up to be a dad and a good dad helps care for his baby and is not seen as "too girly" so why would a little boy with a baby doll be any different. I think it is great and if he like the American girl ones and it is in your budget go for it. We don't have any AG but we have Waldorf dolls and ds loves them. I am making him one right now that is a boy so he can play with boy and girl dolls.

Re: would you get an A.G. doll for your son?

Yes, but I'd probably get one of the cheaper ones from target first to see if he really played with and was careful with it. I'm pretty sure the target ones are roughly the same size if it's all the cool playsets and accessories he's drawn to.

I still have my AG doll and DS1 insists he wants to play with it but what he means is sort through all the clothes and toys, change outfits and then wander off, usually after accidentally breaking something. So we only bring out it out occasionally.

Re: would you get an A.G. doll for your son?

Not for a 5 year old. I consider AG dolls to be more for the 7-10 year old age group. I would likely get one of Target's dolls that are similar. We did this for my daughter and she has no idea that her doll isn't an actual AG doll. She rarely plays with it (got it at 5 years old) and I currently have no plan to upgrade her to an AG doll.

Nope. Too expensive. A doll is a doll and meant to be played with. I wouldn't spend that kind of money on a doll only to stress about how well the kid was "taking care" of it.

Depends on age. A friend of mine got her son a boy AG doll- it was part of a twin set, his cousin got the girl twin doll for Christmas last year. He really wanted one that looked like him. He started kindergarten this year so he is 5/6. I think that age is appropriate.

My son loved playing with his sister's Bitty Baby, so they were given a set of Bitty Twins to split as a birthday present.

I don't see anything wrong or weird with boys interested in dolls and stuff Daddy takes care of babies, pushes a stroller and carries a diaper bag. I think it's cute.

I am considering getting dd a Bitty Baby for Christmas. She is only 14 months right now but LOVES her babies. She has a 16" Waldorf doll but she's eats her hair :/ I'd like something sturdier and the brand snob in me doesn't really want a Walmart cheapie.
