Five of the Most Popular Doll Brands for Girls


There is something special about a little girl and her dolls. Even when she’s no longer ‘young’ enough to play dolls without ridicule from her peers, she’s going to love them. She will keep them lovingly beneath her bed or at the top of her closet, packed tightly away with their little treasures. Little girls are sweet as can be with their dolls. Of course, not all dolls get this kind of treatment. Only the best of the best.

American Girl Dolls

These dolls are “The” dolls to have. If you don’t get to make a special trip to the American Girl store to pick out your very own American Girl Doll, you haven’t made it. There’s something so popular about these dolls, and girls adore them.


She’s the most popular doll in the world, and she should be. Barbie has been around for, oh, eternity? She’s been a little bit of everything. She’s a doctor, a dentist, an attorney, a princess, a bride and she’s even a big sister. Barbie has it all.

Bratz Dolls

Bratz Dolls are a bit trendier and a bit more elaborate than Barbie. They’re a bit different in that they have some pretty racy makup and they expose their stomachs. Little girls love the Bratz dolls, even if they’re not as popular now as they once were in the early 2000s.

Monster High

Here’s a doll I just can’t allow my 6-year-old to play with. She’s too mature, too edgy and too everything I don’t want my little girl to become. However, Monster High is everywhere. My daughter has never seen the show and she doesn’t own any Monster High stuff, yet she knows everything about it.

Adora Baby

You might think they’re amazingly life-like or completely creepy; there is no in between. However, the truth of the matter is that these very life-like babies with their almost scary resemblance to real children are very popular, especially for little girls who want to desperately to have a baby of their own. They’re popular all over the world, not just in the US.
