Forget the Babies – Enter the Grandma and Grandpa Dolls!

By Sunny Chanel |

When one thinks of a doll for their little girl, the go-to choice is a one of the baby variety- a bald, round faced representation of a sweet infant. But really, baby dolls are everywhere, every kid has one.  But instead of having them playing, toying and caring for a baby doll get them a more mature, wise, and worldly option…the grandma and grandpa dolls.

The Abuelita and Abuelito dolls by Baby Abuelita celebrate the elderly with their gray haired, bespeckled representations of seniors. Sadly, in American culture, our older citizens aren’t given the respect and honor that many other cultures bestow on them. So it’s not much of surprise to find out that the Baby Abuelita dolls are meant to celebrate the Hispanic culture. The 17” Abuelita Rosa plush doll sings a variety of Mexican lullabies including Arroz con Leche, Que linda manita que tiene el Baby and Duérmete mi niña. And Abuelito Pancho doll wears a guayabera and sings Aserrín, aserrán, los maderos de San Juan, Los pollitos dicen and Tengo una vaca lechera.

The dolls are available right here for $24.99 here.

Would you ever buy your child a grandma or grandpa doll?
