Someone invent this please.

So.  I am a girl mom trying to learn how to be a boy mom.
I have no idea what I am doing.  
I don't know if Shane (a.k.a. THE BEAST) acts the way he acts because he is a boy, or because he is Shane.
What I do know is I have no idea what I am doing.
What I do know is there is a giant hole in the children's toy market and I want it filled.
Meet Pink Baby (part of Fisher Price's Little Mommy line.)
My kids are very creative with naming their dolls.
The one with blue pajamas?  It's Blue Baby.
The other one with pink pajamas?  She's Other Pink Baby.
Anyway, Pink, Blue, and Other Pink babies are so lovely, perfectly sized, perfectly washable, perfectly totable, perfectly cuddly.  Perfectly cozy.

Know what I want?  
Fisher Price to make baby superheroes.
Yes.  Just like Pink, Blue, and Other Pink.  
But instead of pajamas, costumes.
Instead of little beanies, masks.
Instead of pacifiers and bottles, weapons and shields.
I don't think that I am the only one who wants these to exist.  Nor do I think it is a just a boy mom request.  I know quite the number of super hero loving girls.  Three happen to live in my house.

It shouldn't be that complicated either.  Fisher Price already has licensing deals with DC Comics.  Case in point, the Little People Super Friends that are always within reach of this little beast.

Given I am more a Marvel Comics girl, I wish that a baby Wolverine would somehow exist.  I don't want to get too greedy and I suppose I can settle for Batman.

Know anyone at Fisher Price?  BEG THEM.  Please.  I will be first in line.

  1. I completely agree! Boy everything is kind of lacking compared to girls. Although thank God for Shawn White at Target!! My son would have loved baby super hero dolls. By the way boys get easier. My son was soooo hard from age 15 months till 5 (I know that sounds like a long time) but now at 6 he is a dream! It's my girls who are DRAMA now. I'm sure you are doing an amazing job!

  2. I think they do have several stuff toys that can be purchased at universal, and their are boy super hero barbie type dolls, but yes there is nothing like pink and blue baby. Shane acts like he does because he is a boy. They act totally different then girls. I am the reverse of you with three boys and a girl. My boys are crazy, active,wild, and not very good listeners not because they want to be naughty but because they are curious. Think curious George.

  4. My son has a couple of these from Target. They have all of the main characters and are a nice size. They are in the kids bedroom/comforter section at my store.

  6. I'm the same way when it comes to boys.... I raised three daughters. Then had two grand daughters and finally got us a grand son. It's like totally switching gears. Even though I was raised with nothing but brothers, sometimes I have to think harder to come up with fun boy stuff. I'm about to have them come stay a week with me and I've been brainstorming ideas for my first ever not totally all girl "Camp Honey". (Honey is my grandma name). This will be Nates first year he is old enough to know what is going on. I'm gonna have to mix it up a bit from the dance sessions/tea parties/spa sessions we usually have! Lol. Help!

  7. I SOOO get where you are on this. I hate to tell you, but it is an uphill battle as they get older my friend. Don't even get me started on the ridiculous t-shirt options for little pimps, players, and disrespectful boys.
    Here are some ideas I'd seen that might tie you over until Fisher Price bends to your hopes and desires:

  8. And I would be 2nd in line. We have some super hero dress up, thanks to my mom & aunt buying clearance capt. america & thor after halloween, but it's already falling apart. We need some good stuff! Also. Your beast would fit right in with wild man. And his baby brother. Who is getting way too brave...your kids are adorable.

  10. There will be a lot of boy style plushies out there and lots easily made, to get good quality I would suggest looking at Etsy and other handmade sites and you will either find what you are looking for or if you find something similar or someone with a style you like you can always ask them and you may help the seller by steering them in the direction of a best seller win/win. Good luck and God bless.

  11. Shane is a Shane.... I know this because I have a Luke and a Brody and MAN... Brody is a Brody... it's not a boy thing... it's a Brody thing... or in your case, a Shane thing. Sometimes I think it is a red hair thing, or a youngest child thing... yikes. I feel your Shane pain :) ~ As for the super hero babies... Jen@lipstickandlaundry {lipstickandlaundryca.blogspot.com} can totally make you some... she is my sewing hero. She made a little Brody doll {little b} it is awesome. email her: jennygilley{at}hotmail{dot}com - she will most definitely hook you up.

  12. Okay, but the more important question is...where did you get that adorable dress on your daughter holding pink baby?? That looks identical to the dress my Fisher-Price "My Friend Mandy" doll came in - in 1982!! My daughter who is now the owner of Mandy, needs that dress! :)

    you could have your girls do the same (i bet they inherited some mad sewing skills from their mama).

  14. Dude, I have two boys...the girl side of the store is always bigger, better and more equipped. So very frustrating!

  15. Brilliant. Simply brilliant. I'll even buy them. For my husband. :-P

  16. I would be in line for that, too! My little guy loves his big sister's baby dolls, so a little Superman baby doll would be awesome.

  17. I have a good friend who is the senior toy buyer at Target. I threw her your suggestion and she said the makers of Cabbage Patch are planning a super hero doll line for 2014. So it's coming!

  18. My two cents: I have a boy and two girls, boy is the oldest and by far the most stubborn, wild, ornery creature i have ever, ever come across. I think it's a boy thing. And i agree, i would have loved some plush super hero dolls when he was younger!

  19. I was looking for this too and remembered you had written about it! My poor son is inundated with Princesses! The boy needs some superheroes in his life! They have the Super Hero Squad, I found them on Amazon, they aren't plushie or anything, but they have Wolverine and Spiderman and the Avengers... I think I will be picking some up soon...

  20. Christmas is an exciting time for little girls and boys, who have been waiting for a year to receive their great presents that they always wish to get. However, the upcoming Christmas holiday is a hard task for the parents to choose a toy for their children.
