With Christmas fast approaching I thought I would share with you one of my favorite finds from last year.
These dolls are perfect for little girls! They are soft and easy to dress and undress (which Lauren likes to do best!). They have adorable hair and faces. They aren't anatomically correct, just a cute little belly button, nothing more to wonder about. There aren't tiny little shoes and accessories that so easily get sucked up into the vacuum. They come in different sizes, we have a mini-Groovy girl from the Candy Kingdoms collection and one that is a bit bigger from the Fantasy theme collection. Best of all there is a whole collection of them and they are affordable! Plus you can buy clothes separately so your little one can strip the doll and have you re-dress it in a different outfit...repeatedly!!
I have never seen these in stores, but then again, I don't get out much! I just happened to stumble across them last year when I was searching Amazon for gift ideas. This year I went to the Manhattan Toy Company web-site and found that the dolls are still a great price ($12.00-$20.00) and the selection is better (obviously) than Amazon, so I may be buying straight from the company. The hard part will be which doll and outfit to choose.
They are all so cute and truth be told I enjoy playing with them just as much as my daughter does!
SO...if you are looking for a great, adorable, affordable gift for your little girl or a young girl in your family, check these out. I think you'll be glad you did. It will be a doll she and you will enjoy for years to come.
