Oh mama, he's so sweet! One of my college professors (I studied child development) thought that boys don't play with dolls b/c they don't have penises (and thus, are girls). I say unless you really need the $$, put him away for a while and try again next year (or for the holidays, if you give gifts then). Sorry, maybe I'm playing devil's advocate here! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/FIREdevil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="devil">

I second holding onto the doll up untill your son is older, treat it well and you will model parenting skills to your child. Read some about Waldorf and dolls.I think it's a cool doll. It's a perfect opportunity for your son to practice nurturing when he grows out of babyhood.<br><br>
Good luck!<br>
