first baby doll

My granddaughter is 18 months. I wanted to buy her a baby doll. Things are not as simple as they were 30 years a go. Most of the stuff I see is this plastic Bratz type of doll. Any ideas and where to buy? TIA

I have usually gotten things like that at places like Wal-Mart and Target! On her second Christmas our DD was 17 months old and my brother and SIL bought her a baby doll for Christmas. She jumped up and down and yelled, "baby, baby, baby, baby....." the entire time DH was getting it out of the package! Have fun!

My DD received a simple, bald Cabbage Patch doll last year for Christmas. She's was almost one at the time. She has been a big fan of it and it goes everywhere with us! I think they can be found at a lot of stores.

I like those Corolle Mon Premier baby dolls. I think it is a French brand, but available on Amazon. A beautiful, old fashioned simple doll that has a soft body and vinyl arms and legs. Eyes that shut if you lay her down. They have accessories, too. It has a soft bean bag type body, but plastic head and limbs. Open-close eyes. Was a favorite of my niece!

Lol don't get a Bratz doll. There are little baby dolls at ToysRUs...small plastic & come w baby accessories etc. There r other choices too. They also have BabyAlive dolls but I care less for those. Target has some too.

I believe American Girl has baby dolls too that are nice. Plenty of accessories as well.

For her first American Girl doll, Bitty Baby! My DGD had one and it was adorable! She loved it and spent many hours playing with her. When one of its eyes stopped blinking, my DD sent her in to the company. For a minimal charge, fixed her and sent her back in a hospital gown with a hospital wrist band and a bandaid.

I was going to suggest Bitty Baby, or the Lillian Vernon catalogue.

This was my DD's first doll. I liked that the whole body is soft and she loved the magnetic pacifier

If you Amazon search Manhattan Toy Baby you get their different versions if you want hair that more closely resembles your DGD

My daughter's first doll was also the same Baby Stella as posted above. She loved it because she could take the pacifier in and out easily since it's magnetic. It's still a hit in my house with my daughter (5) and son (2).

I bought my niece the Baby Stella for her first birthday in October. She loves that baby! The magnetic pacifier is a big hit. Plus they make all kinds of accessories and clothes that go with it that you can buy. There are many different version of the Baby Stella, even a boy one.

My girls are definitely older, but they both loved the American Girl Bitty Baby. My oldest still has hers with all of her clothes. Bitty Baby weathered lots and lots of playtime over the years.

This little baby is really sweet in person and very cuddly:

Here's one for when she's couple years older:

I found the sweetest doll. She is very much like the Gund and Steller doll but it was another brand. Actually the directions were in French. I got her at TJ Maxx. I have my DD doll crib from when she was little.
