Yup, this is me too. I might get one for my ds, or my dd, depending on certain things. I'd rather buy them less expensive or waldorf dolls though. But no gender isn't going to make me decide for or against a doll.

Yes I would. If he would play with it why not?

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

Okay I just realized there could be 2 avenues to an answer. I see some answering based on price. And some answering on gender.

If I'm reading the OP correctly, it's wondering if we would buy based on the whole "gender" specific train of thought? Yes, I would buy the doll
If it's about the money, AG dolls are a bit expensive for our budget so I'd always buy something cheaper.

If money was not an issue, absolutely.

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

Probably not. I've never been presented with a request for one, so I can't say for sure.

I never bought one for my daughter either. None of my children have ever asked for one, nor have I ever really thought about it. Anyway, my oldest son recently brought my daughter's old things from their father's house, including two dolls...they're referred to by him (my youngest) as "Creepy Baby" and "Super Creepy Baby". It's the eyes. He certainly doesn't play with the dolls enough to warrant any sort of large purchase. He really is just amused by their creepiness.

My husband would likely say "no" to a doll request, but I wouldn't make such a blanket statement and I don't always listen to the man. He's never been told by either of us, not to play with dolls.

I would not, just because of the cost and how he destroys things. I have NO issue at all with buying him a doll, but it would be an inexpensive one.
