Boy Doll to Play with Barbie's Sisters?

My girls love the Barbie sister dolls (Chelsea, Madison, Skipper -- they are part of the Barbie set but look like girls or teenagers). Recently we've had quite a few little boys over who also like to play with the dolls... but I only have girl dolls. Does anyone know of a boy doll that would match the size of these smaller Barbies? I've tried searching but I'm stumped.

Edited to add - yes, they absolutely still make Ken and GI Joe and others, but those are adults. I'm looking for a doll that would look more like a child to match the Barbie girl children. Maybe it's not possible... just figured some of you smart ladies might know!

Here's a link to the dolls I'm talking about in case it helps!

What can I do next?

I always chopped the hair off one of my girl Barbies if I wanted a boy. It worked well enough for me. ;)

Size doesn't matter.

There are all sorts of boy character dolls out there - Disney princes, Ken, GI Joe, comic book superheroes - take your pick.

Perhaps size difference...A smaller doll could be considered a "kid".

I think the Bratz Dolls are smaller then the average Barbie. They have boys. Also Monster High, but they aren't human. :) I'm also not sure about their size.

You can look into customizing a few extra little sister dolls. Cut and color and I think a few could pass as a boys.

In the barbie set there used to be a boy aged about 7-9 ish named todd. He was part of the barbie family had a twin sister tamed tutti. tutti and todd were the twin brother / sister of barbie and skipper. there was also a teen boy named Kevin who was the boyfriend of skipper he played basketball lol. Here are a couple sets on ebay right now worth taking a look at.

What about action figure "dolls?" I don't think they have to be the exact same size. Ben 10 might also have dolls/figures. I know there used to be a Ben 10 and a Kevin 11.

If the boys like playing with them, just let them use the girl dolls.

Disney may have some younger versions of some of the princes. They definitely make James from Sofia the First.

I don't have daughters. My son liked Polly Pocket more than Barbie, but he also had his own Barbie doll who would interact with his GI Joes.

The gender of the doll doesn't matter.

The boys already play with the dolls.
So I don't think you have to search far and wide, for exact boy versions of the girl's dolls.
I have a boy and girl. And my son would play with my daughter and her dolls with his own action figure figure, dolls. And it was fine. It is just imaginative play and they still had fun.
