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.
