My Daughter’s Dolls Are Nudists

I used to think it was funny and a bit odd to see people out in public and their child holding a naked doll. Now, we are one of those families.


Do you see the topless doll in her hand? I felt weird trying to photograph her dolls without their clothes so this is the best candid shot I could provide.

I’m not quite sure when Rissa’s dolls started refusing their clothes. I think it started with taking off the mermaid tale on Coral, the Lalaloopsy Mermaid. She has legs and comes with a bathing suit too… That my daughter won’t let me put on her.

Then her other mermaids (Moxie Girls) have tops that are easy to take off…which she did. They aren’t flat chested though. Rissa points out they have “mak” (milk) as nonchalantly as she points out their ears and noses. She did try to take their tails off, but they aren’t removable. She handed them to me pleading “stuck” but I couldn’t do anything about it.

A few other dolls are still clothed only because it’s attached. She still tries to free them from their fabric jails, but gets frustrated in the process. To her their clothing less bodies are just natural and normal.

Occassionally she puts hats on them.

She likes to take them with her when we go for walks or run errands. At first I was embarrassed, insisting they were cold and needed jackets. Now, I just accept that she has naked toys that I don’t have to buy extra clothes for… Yet.

Does your kid have toys without clothes? Or some other quirk in their play?

I had sons , so I didn't have to worry about dolls. However, some of my friends had girls who took the clothes off saying the dolls needed to feel free. It didn't last long because they received new outfits for the dolls

Tee hee!! This post and the comments gave me a good giggle. I can't really think of any quirks about my kids toys, but my daughter is now the girl who never matches her socks. And it's not even close to matching, we're talking one neon green crew sock with a yellow lacy bobby sock. You know what? I don't even mind, as long as she gets herself ready without a fight. That's what the second child did to me, made me not care about matching socks anymore! ha ha!

My daughter was never much into dolls, only stuffed animals. With those, though, she has certain outfits that each can wear and doesn't like it when other put the 'wrong' clothes on the plush animal :P Oh well, as long as your daughter doesn't show signs of being a nudist herself it all seems pretty innocent and harmless.
