As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 1 years of age.
Review for Baby Stella - Baby Brother Sam
Posted 1/3/2012 by Sarah Grant
I got this Baby Stella - Baby Brother for my 1 yr old boy for his birthday. He seems to really like it. He plays with the "pacifier" and puts it on and off the baby. We've only had it for a short while but we love it so far!
Baby Stella, baby brother Sam

We LOVE baby brother Sam! First, when you have a little boy who wants a baby.... GOOD LUCK! Everything is pink and purple and there are no options for little boys. We scoured the city looking for a boy or gender neutral baby. Also, I'm not a fan of the hard plastic dolls. It's ok for the head, but when it's a cloth body that attaches to plastic arms and legs, the seams tend to rip. (I have a boy, he's not gentle!) When I called Fat Brain and asked about a boy doll, they told me about Baby Stella: Baby Brother Sam, AND put it on hold for me and said they'd hold it for several days! We picked the doll up that night, and the quality is great! The baby is super soft, and has no plastic. It's washable, which I love. My son is thrilled with him, and I love that he wears boy clothes.
Two suggestions on this product: He has a magnetic pacifier. Super clever, and my son loves it. However, I wish it came with a pacifier clip, so when it pops off his mouth, it's still attached to the doll somehow. Also, the diaper it came with falls off a lot.
I do wish the company would make boy themed accessories. My son like that baby bed/carrier, but it was all in pink.
My son's new favorite toy!

My 2-year-old wanted a boy doll. We had purchased Baby Stella for our niece several months ago and she loves it, so I was thrilled there was a boy option available.
Sam has quickly edged out our son's other toys and has a permanent place in his bed at night. He loves giving him his pacifier, changing his diaper and pushing him around in a stroller.
As a parent, I love that Sam is washable and soft and snuggly. I don't have to worry about my rough-and-tumble son knocking his baby sister with a hard plastic doll or him loving Sam too much at mealtimes or in the backyard and getting him dirty.
My only complaint is that there are limited options for accessories for Sam. While there are tons of "girly" pieces for Stella, Sam is limited to one extra outfit. Also, my son lost the pacifier and finding a replacement without buying a whole extra outfit has been impossible. I contacted the manufacturer directly and never heard back.
Boy baby doll - FINALLY
Posted 9/17/2011 by Ema Rowe
For almost three years I have been looking for a baby doll for my grandson . He has a "FirstBaby but she was sewn into a pink outfit. Finally I found Baby Sam. He's soft, for bed time (no hard plastic), he has his own pacifier, which my grandson LOVES, has ribbon hair so it won't shed and he is wearing blue. We attached one of our grandson's paci clips so that will never get lost. It;s a magnetic paci so it's important that we don;t loose it. (by the way, my grandson thinks that part - magnet-is so interesting) I am so grateful that this company finally realized a boy needed a little "son" to play with too. WE are all very pleased.
