How We Selected Baby Doll Accessories

Type of Accessory

Baby doll accessories come it all shapes and sizes.

Some accessories are better for carrying the baby around like car seats, strollers, swings, and carriages. Clothing is another common baby accessory, especially since it can be fun for your little one to try out different outfits. There are also accessories like diapers, bottles, rattles, and other baby items that make it possible to feed and care for their baby.

We tried to include a wide variety of accessories on this list.

Compatibility

It can be disappointing for your child to receive a new outfit or accessory for their baby doll and find out it isn’t compatible. As we looked at the available accessories, we considered if they were designed for a specific brand or compatible with several types of dolls. 

Overall Quality

We assessed the overall quality of the accessories by looking through reviews across the web. Several of the toys were also played with and tested through personal use.

FAQs About Baby Doll Accessories

What are the benefits of playing with baby dolls? 

Playing with dolls has benefits for boys or girls, including:

  • Nurturing and caring skills- When playing with dolls, children often imitate the way that they see adults interact with babies in real life and in television shows. They may comfort, feed, warm, or clean the baby. As they take care of the doll, they are learning empathy skills and practicing how to be loving toward others.
  • Fine motor skills- Dressing dolls or changing diapers might require fastening tabs, securing and unfastening velcro, and buttoning or unbuttoning. Practicing these skills improve fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
  • Cognitive skills- Dolls can be a useful tool in learning. For example, you might help your child learn their different body parts by pointing them out on a doll. The same skills practiced when dressing a doll can be used for your child to become more independent in dressing themselves. Baby dolls that wet themselves can also be used to help children who are learning to go to the bathroom get familiar with the process.
  • Preparing for a new sibling- Sometimes, a baby doll can help a sibling-to-be get used to the idea of no longer being in the family. Additionally, as they learn to help and you encourage them to help with their new sibling, they’ll take on a more nurturing role in the new baby’s life.

How do baby doll accessories improve play? 

Baby doll accessories like strollers, car seats, and feeding accessories can be used to care for a doll, encouraging role-play and nurturing the imagination. Other accessories like baby doll clothing improve fine motor skills as your child puts it on and takes it off.

Finally, accessories like a swing, stroller, or car seat give your child new ways to interact with their baby.

Can boys play with baby dolls and baby doll accessories? 

Baby dolls are sometimes thought of as girl toys’. However, little boys can benefit from playing with and caring for dolls in the same ways as girls. They receive the same cognitive and fine motor benefits and improve their nurturing skills. Dolls can also be used to prepare little boys for siblings.

Caring for dolls can also teach empathy, which is important for expressing emotions. It’s important for boys (and girls) to have room to express their emotions so they can learn to regulate them.

Something else to remember is that boys grow up to be parents, too. When boys are playing with dolls, they are reinforcing those nurturing skills that make them great parents.

Final Word

The best baby doll accessories enhance doll playing for boys and girls. This is perfect for teaching skills like empathy and nurturing, improving fine motor skills, and more.

My personal favorite accessory is the Melissa & Doug Mine to Love Travel Time Play Set because it comes in neutral colors and has plenty of accessories to take on the go.
