These days dolls look so real, just like they are human, as the reborn doll, a manufactured skin doll that has been transformed to resemble a human infant with as much realism as possible

Dolls, never go out of date, they just become collectibles and are carried on through the generations, memories.

But they should be part of a child’s life, it leads to the wonderful and lovely job of caring for babies, toddlers, and children.

My early memories of dolls as a child was a little kewpie doll I had, it was a treasure I could hold in one hand, and I would carry it around everywhere, over the years that little doll has got lost.

While searching for some gift ideas for girls I came across kewpie dolls, it rekindles my mind of that little doll, and they are still around, Check out Amazon.

There are some very nice dolls for girls and boys, these day’s men are bringing up children (house husbands) as well as a woman, but I don’t know that they played with dolls as a child, I could be wrong.

Here’s a blog about children playing with dolls, and Yes even boys, interesting read. http://mamaot.com/why-kids-should-play-with-baby-dolls-yes-even-boys/

It has been said children prefer to play with touch screens more than traditional toys, like dolls, action toys, and board games, even the barbie doll has been forgotten.

The earliest American black dolls with realistic African facial features were made in the 1960s.

This photo is of Various antique to modern black dolls, which I found interesting, they weren’t around when I was a child, and I did think about it, as I had many dark skinned friends at school (Maoris).
