Is 5 still a "doll age"??
Are dolls for 5yo boys a waste of money - A LOT of money?? (I am SO not crafty and am not up for making one )
Any thoughts? Experiences?
My 7yo son 'adopted' Jenny when I brought her home from the school auction last spring. His younger brother 'adopted' Phia at Christmas 2 years ago when he was 2. My older had little interest in Phia at first and it was really the younger's doll. I've been quite surprised that my older took to a doll when he was older. My older son is very 'boy', loving all things trains, trucks, swords. My younger son can keep up with his brother, but also loves pink, Hello Kitty, the doll house and his dancing skirt.
Dolls are friends and it doesn't seem to matter to my two!
My son is 5.5 and he loves his doll. And he's very boyish too. There are some kits from Weir Crafts that make it really easy to make your own. If you make it, even though it won't be perfect, it will be cooler to your son.
DS1 never got into dolls. The only wooden toys he cares about are his wooden train set and his wooden sword.
DS2 loves dolls. He's very cuddly and likes to play imaginative games with them.
Totally depends on the kid!
