please bear with me, i know there have been tons of threads about ag dolls (and dolls in general).
dd is going to turn four in april. we had planned on getting her a baby doll (hadn't decided on which one yet), but thought it would be a good idea (i'm pregnant and am expecting in may). thought it would be nice for dd to have her own little baby (just like mama). anyway, that was the plan. hadn't even discussed it with her, just decided on it. however, the other day i asked her what she would like for her birthday and she said a doll (great!), but upon further discussion, it turns out she doesn't want a baby doll, but a girl doll (like an ag doll). tried to convince her that a baby doll would be fun, but she really preferred the little girl dolls (that she can dress up and customize, etc).
so, i went to the website and it says that those dolls are for ages 8 and up. honestly, i can't imagine waiting until she's eight to get her such a thing. i'm thinking at that point she'd be outgrowing dolls (although i honestly don't know that for sure).
anyone have one of these dolls for a younger child? anyone know why the age recommendation is so high?
i'm thinking of one of the "my american girl" dolls that you pick the hair and eye color for.
i'm not concerned about dd destroying the doll, she's pretty careful with her stuff.
