Is it normal for a 4 year old boy to want to play with a Barbie doll?

Report as

Sure! I wouldn't sweat it. Some boys carry around baby dolls. Some girls play with trucks! He could like dressing the doll because he is copying you getting dressed. Nothing wrong, he's just a little guy.

Depends. Are you the four year old? And no it's not, but when I was little I played with thomas the tank engine and watched bob the builder.(I'm a girl.) No one's normal.

Well the more you let a boy do girl things. He will grow up liking those things. And increases likely hood of turning gay. Told to me by a gay guy so nobody get mad.

Yep my brother does it my cousins do it and my friends brother does it! I know a lot of boys who do that when he's older he'll probably just get into action figures or legos!

He'll be fine. At 4 I wouldn't worry about that. Now if he's playing w them at 15. Big problem..lol.
Boys still have GI Joe type dolls and stuffed animals. It's all pretend. ;)

Totally! When their young, they don't care as long as they have something do play with. My cousin is 2 and he plays with Littlest Pet Shops :)

Nope well if he has sisters and they are playing and he wants to join that's ok. but on his own I don't think so.

yes it is, my brother is 6, and i'm 13, as he was growing up he was asking for dolls, wearing my clothes, wasting my make-up, playing with bratz dolls and everything, sometimes now he still plays with them with my 2 year old cousin, but its nothing to worry about, its just how they want to be, my brother is now into boxing, wrestling, karate and eventually your brother will grow out of stuff like that, if he doesn't, well.. you shouldn't be bothered in how he turns out, hes your brother and you should love him for who he is :)
