My 9 year old son wants a doll that looks just like him? Has anyone found an "American Girl"-esque doll for boys?
18inch boy doll?
Carpatina makes some. Not the kind that you can order to look like your child like the American Girl but they look like older boys . Their pricing in more in line with American Girl, I don't know about the quality of them. Here is one.
I just went to their website which is better then the amazon link. They have two boy dolls. and they claim to be similar to American Girl. They lo ok really nice!http://www.carpatina.com
Those are some of the creepiest dolls I have ever seen!!! Seriously, just looking at them once I think I'll have nightmares!
Just wanted to update as their may be others who might be looking. We got our son a "my sibling" doll and he loves it! It is also a great doll for Autism Awareness as you can choose for it to come with a booklet about Autism, as well as other things such as "going green", "peace", "tennis", and other things. They are really cute. Quality not as great as American Girl but good enough. My rough and tumble boy who throws his into the air and "catches" (sometimes) has kept it looking good. http://mysiblingdolls.com/ The dolls are assembled and packaged by people with disabilities.
We get the American Girls catalog (great for making paper dolls) and they do carry boy dolls, however they only come in the twin sets and are 15". I'm looking at a set of twin boys right now, though I don't know if you get to choose their skin color for that set.
You can buy individual American Girls Bitty Ttwins if you go into a retail store. It is slightly more than half the twins price. And yes, you can pick out the doll. http://store.americangirl.com/agshop/static/bittytwins.jsp My guess is you can probably order them from an indiviudal store and have them shipped. You cannot do it by website or phone for no apparent reason.
