    American Girl Dolls: Bitty Baby vs. Bitty Twins

    I know- this is another one of my earth-shattering questions! But, I figured someone here might have some good input for me.

    I want to get DD a Bitty Baby or Bitty Twin for her 2nd birthday. She currently owns no dolls, but is always treating her bears like dolls- feeding them, putting them in her booster seat and "feeding" them, changing their diaper, etc.

    Here is what I am trying to decide...two of my neices have Bitty Baby already, so hers would be the third, and her younger neice would make four of the same exact doll. I would like DD to have something different. Bitty Baby is a baby doll- the Bitty Twins are toddlers, not babies. (My SIL will split the twins with me, so DD would get one, and her younger cousin would have the same one. But- it will not cost me more, and I won't have to have two.)

    Bitty Baby is bald. Bitty Twins have hair (and I think they are way cuter). They are the same size. You can use the accessories interchangably.

    Am I missing the boat by buying a Bitty Twin rather than a Bitty Baby? Would she enjoy the Twin less because it is not a baby?

    I'm not a good person to give you an opinion on this one because if she was my kid she'd have all three (the pair of twins plus the baby) but I wanted to post a free shipping code I saw on another board - good through 10/22:

    Good luck with your important decision!

    You know, at that age my girls both loved baby dolls. They loved to feed them and diaper them and "take care of them." While I don't think your daughter would be disappointed at all with a toddler doll, I would probably go with the baby--cause tiny little girls with baby dolls are just too sweet!!

    I'd get her a baby now and move up to a toddler later.

    And you know, there are other baby dolls out there. You could get a less expensive but good quality baby doll for her now and spend the $$ on an American Girl later.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. ~E.B. White

    OOOHH! Thanks for the free shipping code. I have been looking for one of those for a while.

    Robyn- I think I am going to do similar to what you suggested. My DH said that he thought the Bitty Twin might last her longer (until she wants the American Dolls). I think I am going to buy her a less expensive doll- hopefully the same size, and the Bitty Twin too.

    Thanks for the thoughts...
