Growing up, many of us played with dolls. However, the time period you were born in greatly determined which kinds of dolls you played with. For example, as a child of the 1990s, I grew up playing with Barbie dolls. I can even remember being gifted a collectible Cruella de Vil Barbie that, much to my mom's horror, I tried to give a haircut. However, my sister was born just a few years later and she fell into the Bratz doll demographic. I truly never got over their removable feet. Now, I'm sure kids have plenty of other dolls that I've never heard of.
