Best Asian Dolls for Asian American and Pacific Islander Little Girls

best realistic asian looking dolls for girls JadeLuckClub

best asian doll for adopted asian chinese korean baby toddler jadeluckclub jade luck club asian doll familyI know I am too late for the December holidays … oops, that month was a blur! My girls were never that into dolls though we had our share of the American girls including the Asian American San Franciscan Julie. Still, it’s nice to know that there are a range of great Asian and Eurasian dolls at price points much below that of the American Girl Dolls. I’ve researched the best Asian dolls for children including doll families for doll houses.

In browsing all the doll choices at Amazon labeled Asian, I was struck by the multitude of Asian baby dolls for children. These did not exist when I was little. I wonder if this market niche will continue to grow as the Asian market overseas has more purchasing power? I was also surprised by the specificity of the dolls: Asian baby dolls with Down’s Syndrome (?!) and also Tipi from Laos. Interesting, huh? What do you think of all these choices? And, do your kids have a favorite Asian baby doll? Please share!

    My daughter was given the doll (Corolle) featured at the top of the post – it’s a great doll. Lovely facial features and soft body, and the clothes are removable.

      Hi Wendy,
      Congrats on your recent award from APALA for The Great Wall of Lucy Wu!! That Corolle doll does look nice! I wish I had known about it when my girls were little! Did your daughter play with it for a long time?

    My 6 year old daughter received this doll for Christmas: http://www.cptoy.com/cgi-bin/pf.sh/2.0/product.htm?pf_id=LOT-11L $59 for doll and 18 piece wardrobe

    There is also two Asian dolls in the American Girl Doll collection:

    There are many more that I’ve seen, but can’t find them right now.

    To Truly Blessed,
    Thanks so much for those doll suggestions. LOL, I did buy Ivy for my daughter. I didn’t include the American Girl dolls because of the high price point, but you are right, I need to add them. The dolls are very high quality and I love the books too! Just a tad pricey.
