Bilingual dolls

I was online today and came across bilingual dolls that speak English and Mandarin. They are called “Language Littles” and help teach children basic phrases in a foreign language. The 16-inch dolls are available in several other foreign languages as well. It may be a good toy for an adopted child, to help them hear words that are familiar as they transition to their new home and family, and to help them feel a little more comfortable. The only downside, if we adopt a boy, I’m not sure they will be all that interested in playing with a doll baby. Maybe I should contact the company and ask them to make a boy version? If anyone else knows of toys that may be helpful for adopted children, please leave a comment.

    Hello! We got this language little for Sophia and she loves it! It’s really cute and also helped my hubby and I get some very minimal mandarin in before our trip. I highly recommend it. Sophia was 12 months when we got her and she has played with everything age appropriate toys – he or she will love them all 🙂 I love your blog!!!!

    Eric is 1 and he hugs all the stuffed animals that he sees. He even bows to them LOL. I think the baby (regardless of gender) will appreciate this doll.
