Growing up, many of us played with dolls. However, the time period you were born greatly determined the types of dolls you played with. For example, as a child of the 90s, I grew up playing with Barbie dolls. I even remember getting a collectible Barbie Cruella de Vil that, to my mom’s horror, I tried to get her hair cut. However, my sister was born a few years later and she fell into the Bratz doll demographic. I really never recovered from their removable feet. Now, I’m sure the kids have plenty of other dolls that I’ve never heard of.
