Best Dolls and Loveys for Babies Ages 0 to 12 months

First Dolls and Loveys make up the majority of best dolls for babies because they are best suited to that stage of a toddler's growth - exploring their world through sight, touch and taste. Here the bright colors, strong patterns and multiple textures help stimulate the growing brain.

But there is another school of thought as well: I want to give a gift that is safe for the baby now, but will be enjoyed for several years after as well, a doll that two year olds and three year olds will still find interesting and with play value.
