If you spend any time on this site, you know we’re big fans of Baby Stella Dolls. There are a few reasons why these dolls make amazing friends for toddlers. Not only are they an excellent way to teach empathy and anatomy, but they are also very cuddly. They also have the fantastic ability to spark the imagination. Though there are fewer Wee Baby Stella accessories available, I feel they are just the right size for babies transitioning into toddlerhood.
I chose the following sets because each of them covers a different aspect of baby care, or in this case, doll care. Though the doll by itself promotes nurturing, each set in itself is an activity. Prices for each item are less than $20, and in some cases, less than half of that. They are also easy to clean and are quite durable.
Are you planning to give any of the following items as a gift? Make sure that you are buying the right size items for your doll. Regular-sized Stella dolls are too big for anything on this list.
Update: I’ve gone through this list and pulled off a couple of items that aren’t available anymore, and added one new product. It looks like Manhattan Toy is moving away from making accessories specifically for the 12″ doll. New accessories are being marketed for use with both the Wee Baby Stella and larger 14″ baby Stella dolls.
Feeding Set for Wee Baby Stella
One of the first skills my oldest daughter insisted on mastering was feeding herself. Once she had a firm grasp on that, pretending to feed her dolls was next.
This three-piece feeding set is a perfect way to help develop that nurturing skill. The plush teething ring and bottle will both magnetically attach to Wee Baby Stella’s mouth, just like her pacifier.
And can you believe how adorable the bib’s strawberry drawing is?
Wee Baby Stella Travel Time Carrier Set
This carrier is a lovely accessory for those of us who have a toddler and a baby. If you use a carrier with your baby, your toddler might like the idea of carrying her Wee Stella around in her own carrier. The straps are short, which makes it the perfect size for toddlers as well.
The carrier has a magnetic pacifier pinned to the front, which I like. It’s one less small piece that little ones can lose!
Snuggle Bunny Sleeper
I wanted to stay away from clothing. But after looking at the Snuggle Bunny Sleeper, I felt that it was more of an accessory that would promote plenty more imaginative play than an outfit would. This travel-style sleep sack is the perfect size for 12″ Wee Baby Stella dolls. It uses Velcro as a fastener, so little hands will have an easy time getting the sleeper on the doll.
Do you love the bunny ears? If you do, you should know that there is an even more adorable little fluffy bunny tail on the backside of the suit.
Sweet Dreams Bassinet for Wee Baby Stella
I saved the best for last! The Sweet Dreams Bassinet is by far my favorite of all the Wee Baby Stella accessories. Don’t you love the blue and white stripes? And it matches the diaper bag perfectly because it has the same floral print!
Though the pictures make it look like it’s sturdy enough to stand up on its own, the material is quite soft and flops a little more than you would expect. That doesn’t make it a bad toy, though. One of my toddler’s favorite games is putting things in bags, and this bassinet is the perfect size to put her doll in. She loves it!
