15 Bookish Dolls and Plush Toys for Every Kind of Book Lover

I’m sure on the top of every little kids’ Christmas list this year is an Iris Murdoch doll. No? What about a Maya Angelou pillow? Or an Elizabeth Bennet plush doll? Well, if they’re not on your kids’ wishlist they certainly should be, because these dolls are the coolest! Any self- respecting book- loving kid would be thrilled to get a Virginia Woolf, Toni Morrison, or Dorothy Parker doll as a Christmas present. Right?

Well, if not, these dolls would be great gifts for any kind of book lover.

And if the kids in your life are not interested in getting dolls that look like some of the most badass writers who have ever lived…there’s also Dog Man, Ada Twist Scientist, and Hilda, which are also pretty amazing.

Here are 15 delightfully literary dolls and plush toys for every kind of book-loving kid (or adult, because I wasn’t kidding about that Iris Murdoch doll):
