Dolls guide

Which doll fits which child and which age?

  • A doll should neither over- nor under-challenge a child, but rather be an "equal" counterpart .
  • For smaller, younger children up to around 3 years of age , detailed face shapes or functions are not that important. At this age, a doll is primarily used to cuddle and to drive around in the doll's pram (the most popular doll's prams can be found here) . Example: Dolls by K√§the Kruse (here to the product overview) - a world-wide exclusive licensed Waldorf doll manufacturer - are a high quality example of such dolls. Important : Small detachable parts, long loops or harmful substances have no place in dolls for children under 3 years of age.
  • Slightly older children from around 3-4 years of age like to delve into role-playing games - from this age onwards, more precise imitation of face shapes is perceived and becomes more important. Minidiva is a manufacturer specializing in the exact imitation of babies in doll form, so-called reborn dolls , has specialized.
  • Children from about 5 years old still love to cuddle with a doll. In addition, children of this age also enjoy imitating their mum / parents and changing, feeding or calming the doll, etc. The classic for a functional doll : the baby born doll from Zapf. Barbie dolls are also extremely popular with girls from this age onwards.

What to look for when buying a doll

In addition to the educational aspect of a doll, which depends on the age or level of development of a child, there are some basic things that you should consider when choosing a doll :

  • Free of harmful substances : Dyes and plasticizers such as DEHP and DINP are harmful. Test seals such as those from T√úV Rheinland , T√úV S√ľd or LGA are always a good sign for quality toys. When buying, make sure you use high-quality materials, preferably without harmful substances. The doll test of the trade journal ‚Äú√Ėko-Test‚ÄĚ can also be used for the selection - we have clearly listed the test winners above.
  • With dolls for toddlers, make sure that no small parts can be removed that could be swallowed.
  • Even sharp parts, edges or seams have no place in a doll, especially in dolls for small children who still cuddle intensively with dolls.
  • For hygienic reasons, dolls that can be cleaned or washed are advantageous

Which doll manufacturers or brands can you trust?

High quality standards are a matter of course for established doll manufacturers . These brands and doll manufacturers have long been established on the market:
