Dolls & Bears
Encourage a child's imagination by providing tiny treasures for cuddling. When the smallest tots hold baby dolls, they often transform into miniature parents who rock their infants to sleep, feed them, and even change their diapers. Baby dolls on eBay range from lifelike Reborn dolls and preemie La Newborns to dolls that serve as symbols of cultural heritage, such as Russian and Inuit baby dolls.
Take a trip down memory lane by collecting Barbie dolls from a long ago childhood or introduce modern versions to other little girls. Sellers on the site have amassed a wide selection of both vintage and contemporary Barbies, clothing, and accessories. Collectors appreciate precious dolls in mint condition, but restoration materials, such as paint in various skin tones and hair replacements, are available to help with repairs. Books on collecting can help with identifying specific dolls and accessories and their potential values.
Browse other popular collections, such as American Girl, to find new friends. Other brands include the well-loved Cabbage Patch collection, dainty Madame Alexander, and a multitude of Mattel dolls, including the pint-sized Polly Pocket and the ghoulish Monster High characters. Those with a sense of humour often choose rainbow-haired, pinched-faced Trolls, while adolescents on the verge of becoming teenagers may prefer the stylish Bratz collection.
For hours of creative play, outfit a beautiful dollhouse with miniature furniture such as handmade needlepoint chairs and kitchen sets. As an alternative, take creativity in a tech-driven direction with interactive dolls that talk and perform other actions. Regardless of the final choice, a new doll can make anyone feel special.
