How Big is an Alive Baby Doll?

How Big is an Alive Baby Doll

Baby dolls come in a massive variety of sizes. Just take a look in a department or toy store, and you will see a wide variety of baby dolls. Once you have purchased a doll, thrown the box away, and then want to buy doll clothes for that favorite doll, there is always the question of what size doll clothes do you buy?

Here are some tips to help you decide what size of doll clothes to buy for the doll.

In general, baby dolls fall into one of four categories: large baby dolls, medium baby dolls, tiny baby dolls, and mini dolls.

Below are the approximate sizes of the four sizes of dolls.

Remember, no doll will be precisely these measurements, but each doll will closely fall into one of the four categories.

Large Baby Dolls

  • Large baby dolls are approximately 19”-23” tall
  • Their body measurements are approximately
  • Chest 16.5”
  • Waist 16.5”
  • Hips 17.5”
  • Neck circumference 8.5.”
  • Head circumference 15.”

 Medium Baby Dolls

  • Medium baby dolls are approximately 14”-16” tall
  • Their measurements are about
  • Chest 13”
  • Waist 12.5”
  • Hips 13”
  • Neck circumference 8.”
  • Head circumference 12.25.”

 Small Baby Dolls

  • Tiny baby dolls are about 12″ tall
  • Their measurements are roughly
  • Chest 12”
  • Waist 11”
  • Hips 11.5”
  • Neck circumference 7.”
  • Head circumference 11.75.”

 Mini Baby Dolls

  • Mini baby dolls are approximately 8” tall
  • Their measurements are approximately
  • Chest 7”
  • Waist 4.75”
  • Hips 4.75”
  • Neck circumference 3.5.”
  • Head circumference 6.25.”

Take the baby doll you will purchase doll clothes for and see which of the four categories closest fits your doll’s measurements.

That will be the size of doll clothes you will look to purchase.

If your baby doll is borderline on a size, it is best to purchase more oversized doll clothes than smaller ones. This will help ensure the doll clothes go on quickly and without frustration.

Few doll clothes are an exact fit, which is intentional by the designer of the doll clothes. Roomy styles mean it is easier to dress on your baby doll.

If you are undecided after checking your doll’s measurements with these guidelines, most sellers will be happy to advise you on the size selection to purchase.
