Here are all the inclusive dolls your kids need to play with


by Lily Anderson |

No two people in this world are the same (even identical twins), that’s why children need the opportunity to play with different types of dolls. Toys are a great way to help little ones to learn, and we start this with development toys from the moment they’re born.

Barbie manufacturer Mattel has recently launched a new line of gender-inclusive dolls, Creatable World, which allows kids to express themselves freely. This got us really thinking, what other inclusive toys are out there.

We put our investigative Mummy skills to the test and pulled together a list of all the inclusive dolls your kids need to play with right now.

These gender-inclusive toys have been talked about all over the internet because kids can play with dolls that don’t have a label. Let your little ones get creative with mix and match outfits, wig and accessories.

This barbie appears to have a slightly more realistic body shape than others on the market. Plus, this doll has a beautiful skin tone and rocking afro hair. Whether I would describe this as curvy, I’m not sure, but it’s a step in the right direction.

Once you get over the fact that this doll literally has a detachable baby bump – with a tiny infant inside, it is a great toy for creative play. This will also help you to talk to boys and girls about the basics of the birds and the bees.

Another selection from the Fashionista range, this doll has taller body and braided hair – which is very different from the original design of this toy. I love that this not only displays a different skin tone, but the motorcycle graphic tee is more relatable for tomboys.

Help little ones imagine what they can be when they grow up with Firefighter Barbie. This doll will help protect all the other toys and includes the uniform, hat, walkie-talkie and badge. It’s the ideal gift for kids who want adventure play.

What stands out to me is that this Ken Doll has a beard. Kids can splash around and have fun with water, taking off its beard.
