My little girl has just turned one and is really starting to act more like a toddler every day. I am of course worried about the “terrible twos” but so far it’s just fun to see her interacting with her toys more and developing her own personality. It’s so much more fun choosing toys for her now that I know how much she’ll get out of them.
I recently bought her first doll – a Corolle Calin soft bodied doll, which will be one of her Christmas presents. I’m expecting a little brother for her in a few months and I think it will be great for her to have her own baby that she can look after as well as her new sibling. I took a long time choosing her first doll as I think it’s really important to choose one that is suitable for a young toddler and can be cuddled up to like a real baby.
My daughter is a bit of a tomboy and generally goes straight for the boys toys – cars, light sabres and so on but I really think she’ll have fun playing with a baby doll. She’s also been walking for a couple of months and really loves pushing her little toddle truck with bricks in so I think a dolls pram to go with her new baby doll will be the perfect present.
I really love the Silver Cross range as I think they’re cute without being too girly and I know the Silver Cross company has a good reputation and produces good quality baby products and toys. They may not be the cheapest dolls prams available but I generally prefer to spend a little bit more on a decent quality toy that will stand the test of time, rather than something that is likely to fall apart at the slightest hint of rough play.
My little girl has loved pushing her own buggy rather than sitting in it from the moment she learned to walk so I know she’ll be excited about having her own doll pram to push her baby doll around in, especially after she has a little baby brother and starts wanting to copy me more. She’s already keen to help out with household tasks like sweeping and dusting and I’m guessing it may get a little annoying if she starts insisting on pushing her brother in his pram. I think if I get her a dolls pram of her own, she’ll be happy to play alongside me while I look after her brother.
I remember playing with dolls as a child, as I’m sure most girls do. My doll pram was one of my most treasured possessions and I would pile my whole collection of dolls into it and push them around the garden. I can’t wait to see my baby grow into a little girl and create her own favourite games with dolls.
If I was choosing a doll pram myself, I’d probably go with a Hello Kitty pram as I’m just a big kid at heart and love anything Hello Kitty. My daughter has a couple of Hello Kitty dolls already so she’d probably like this design as well. I also like the modern designs of the Hello Kitty dolls prams as I find some toy pram styles overly frilly and girly.
Here on Dolls Prams World we want to help you find the best dolls pram for your little girl, so whether you’re looking for Silver Cross dolls prams, dolls prams for toddlers or for older girls, you’ll find a great selection to choose from to suit all budgets.
Toddler girls love playing with dolls and a toddler doll pram would make a great first birthday present. When older babies are just starting to learn to walk, a sturdy doll pram can also double up as a baby walker and provide support for young toddlers who are still a little unsteady on their feet. A dolls pram provides valuable role play experience for young children which can help to develop social, motor and communication skills.
Wooden dolls prams are great for this age group as they are sturdy, heavy enough to support the weight of a small child as they are walking and will last for many years. They are more expensive than plastic alternatives but can be considered an investment as they last for so long and can be passed down to other children.
Some good wooden dolls prams to consider are the following:
This beautiful wooden doll pram is available in two different colour combinations – cherry red with yellow wheels or natural birch wood with red wheels. Both colours would look great in a little girl’s bedroom and are not overly girly like so many of the pink dolls prams on the market.
Suitable for children aged 10 months and up, the handle is placed at the perfect height for older babies and young toddlers and although this doll pram is not designed for use as a walker, the rubber tires on the wheels prevent it from travelling too fast on hard surfaces.
The design of this pram is very sweet with little heart cutouts for windows and is girly without being a cliche. It will also stand up to a lot of being thrown around so if your little girl is more of a tomboy, no worries about breaking it accidentally.
Haba Dolls pram
The Haba doll pram is a design classic that comes in a selection of different colours – natural wood, pink and white, or blue and red. It is priced a little higher than some of the other wooden doll prams but buying from the German Haba brand ensures you are receiving a quality wooden toy that will last for many years. It also comes with a mattress, pillow and blanket, which are not included with many of the other wooden toy prams.
This doll pram also has adjustable height handles, meaning it can grow with your child.
This funky pink and purple pram is a great modern design that will fit well into brightly designed bedrooms. The curved shape means that there are no hard corners to accidentally fall on and the hard wearing wood will put up with many years of abuse.
One for those who prefer all things pink and girly, this is an adorable looking pink dolls pram with lilac wheels and accents and a padded removable cushion. The manufacturer’s recommended age is for three years and up but younger toddlers will also get a lot of use from this pram and its heavy weight means that it can double as a baby walker.
The rubber wheel grips slow down the speed of the pram when pushed on hard surfaces and stop it from slipping on rugs and carpets. It is a very reasonably priced wooden doll pram and also works well for storing toys.
This is of a similar pink and girly design to the I’m Toy pram and comes with a similar price tag. This dolls pram has been designed for younger children and also works great as a walker for toddlers who need a little extra support. Little girls will love tucking in their dolls in the matching blanket and pillow. There are also coordinating items in the same range such as a dolls rocking cradle and a dolls high chair which would look great together in your child’s bedroom.
The recommended age for this pram is from three years but there is no reason why it shouldn’t be used for a younger toddler and most mothers have found that between one and three years is the ideal age for playing with dolls in this pram.
If you’re looking for a dolls pram that is a little more unusual, you may want to consider this activity pram by German company Knorr. As well as being a beautiful wooden dolls pram, it also doubles as an activity centre for toddlers. With large rotatable wooden beads on the handle, a clock with moveable hands on the front, and a variety of soft and wooden activities on the sides, this toy has the potential to entertain for hours. It is a little more expensive than some of the other models but is well worth it for the extra play potential.
Wooden toys for toddlers are great quality and long lasting but if you are on a smaller budget, you may prefer to consider one of the cheaper plastic dolls prams for toddlers and luckily there is lots of choice ranging from the very cheap and basic to the sophisticated miniature versions of real baby prams.
This innovative doll pram is great for toddlers and babies from 9 months as it doubles as a walker for encouraging those first steps. There are also fun activities such as spinners and a musical bear that any young child will be fascinated with.
This doll pram has a wide wheel base ensuring it will not tip over when used as support by babies learning to walk and has an ideal handle height for toddlers and older babies.
This cute basic dolls pram based on the popular character Peppa Pig is ideal for toddlers and younger girls. The wheels are detachable to convert it into a doll cradle or car seat and the adjustable handle means that it can easily grow with your child.
This is an ideal first dolls pram for little girls who love Peppa Pig and all things pink.
This ultra girly hello kitty dolls pram is ideal for older toddlers and comes with a cute removable hood and cover in hello kitty fabric and a plastic shopping tray.
This is another cute toddler sized doll pram that would be ideal for a little girl’s first role play toy. Based on a traditional pram design in pink and has an adjustable hood and pram cover.
If you’re looking for something to splash out on for your little girl’s first birthday then you might want to consider one of the dolls prams sets such as this Graco deluxe set which also includes a baby carrier, high chair, play gym, bouncy seat, baby monitors, nappy bag and accessories set. This really is the ultimate role play doll pram set for little girls and will last well beyond the toddler years.
It is also priced surprisingly low and is great value for money as buying the individual items separately would cost a lot more than the price of the set.
