Dolls are magical at any age

I still love dolls.  I don’t know what it is.  There are certain things that are beautiful and fun at any age.  And dolls are one of them!  As I was dressing one of my daughter’s dolls this morning, it made me nostalgic for my childhood and endless afternoons of play.  I know.  I know.  I am going to take some heat for this but I am going here anyway!  People will joke, “Really, Mary?  You have time to dress dolls but you haven’t returned my phone call?”  I know. I am sorry.  My daughter will roll her eyes or cross them.  Crossing them is worse.  Trust me.  But at least my son will be a good sport and tell me, “It’s okay Mum, you can like dolls.  As long as you have time to take me to a movie later.”  But, of course!  Anyway, I have found a fabulous new spot where you can order doll clothes.  It is the  The quality is amazing and the prices are really fair.

They have everything.  It is an online boutique of doll fabulousness.  They have American Girl doll outfits matching girl and doll clothes, Barbie, Cabbage Patch (remember those?  They are back or never went away, not sure!) and on and on.  I selected an American Girl doll outfit to receive.  It is so pretty.  The quality (in my humble opinion) is easily as good as what you buy at other doll clothing shops.  And I don’t have to say this.   The company asked me to review the product and I feel the dress I received was lovely and well-made.  And after reviewing the website, talking with the owner and receiving the product, I can tell they make these clothes with love and good intentions.  They are about a third of the cost of many other retailers and this allows people on every budget to buy clothes for their dolls.  So instead of paying $30 for a dress for your doll, you pay about $7-9.  That is really fair.

Usually I tell my readers you can thank me later for this great new find, but this time I have to thank the folks at for giving me an excuse to take time out and dress a doll.  I haven’t done this in years.  Too many years really.   It suddenly became clear to me why dressing up dolls or stuffed animals is so important.  It is aspirational; it allows us to dream about being a ballerina or a doctor or going to some fabulous dance all decked out!  I guess the message here is to never forget the dreams of that little boy or girl inside of you.  And allow your children endless hours of play so they too can dream of great things.  If any of my wonderful and inspirational readers (yes, you inspire me!) would like an additional discount to the retailer featured here, please make sure you subscribe to my blog and I will send you an email with the discount code!  Please enjoy and keep dreaming!
