I have been searching for a doll for Arlo’s first birthday. I contemplated whether I would write this post, it’s a personal choice and at the end of the day, a doll is just a toy. Who cares if they are typically considered a “girls” toy. I decided to go ahead and post this because dolls are great toys and maybe there are parents out there who haven’t considered buying a doll for their sons – so, this post is for you (and any other parent who is interested in why I think dolls are great toys).

I came across this post earlier this week and just had to share it. It is written by Kerry one of my favourite bloggers. She is an Australian living in Thailand with her husband Sid and son Arlo. You can find her blog here. I really suggest you hop over and give it a read. I’ve never thought of buying my son a doll because, well, he’s a boy. I’d just never given it any thought. But after reading her post, I totally get how beneficial it could be to his development.
Have you ever thought of buying your boys a doll? How do you feel about it after reading Kerry’s post?
