A while ago I spent some time researching dolls. I eventually settled on two by the North American Bear Company: Rosy Cheeks Baby and Big Sister. We finally got around to ordering because both kids are really into playing with their stuffed animals as babies. They put them to bed about once every five minutes, and at other times, I hear all of the language I use with the kids directed at the stuffed animals. It was time, past time, for them to get dolls. Both kids immediately started playing with them and continued all day.
