It’s never too early to bring out the nurturing and caring side of little girls, and this is why baby dolls have become so popular. A baby doll to care for, feed, dress up, and bring around is something that little girls will enjoy, particularly in the 5-9-year-old age range when they’re big enough to understand and truly appreciate what they’re doing.

When picking out baby dolls it’s good to consider how soft and how light (or heavy) the body is, because you don’t want something that’s too heavy. You can also look at the variety in terms of what the doll looks like and what it’s wearing.
