My three year old loves dolls (finally), and loves to carry them around, and dress them up – it’s really cute to watch. I had been looking for a really nice doll with cute outfits and accessories, but I didn’t necessarily want to spend $100 on a doll and then have to spend that much more on all the extras. Thankfully, I discovered this great company when I was sent a package to review from Dollie & me. Dollie & Me is a brand new company that sells these gorgeous 18-inch dolls, and they sell matching outfits (and accessories) for little girls from size 2T, all the way up to size 14x. The company is based in New York City, but everything from the dolls to the outfits to the accessories are available in the U.S. and Canada, in over 2,000 stores (and online) including Dillard’s, JCPenney, Kohl’s, Sears, Sears Canada and Amazon.com.
My daughter, who literally squealed when she opened the box, received the Rachel doll, and two sets of matching outfits. It took but a mere moment for her to take off the clothes she was wearing so she could get dressed just like the new dolly she received. She spent hours in those little outfits, carrying the doll with her everywhere she went. She liked that the doll could “sit on her bum” and that her eyes opened and closed (her first doll to do that). I liked that the doll clothes are designed to completely open in the back with velcro because my three year old had no problem dressing and undressing the doll all on her own. I also thought that the kid’s clothing was nicely made and that they would easily endure her constant need to put them on and take them off many, many times.
After looking at the Fall/Holiday 2010 catalogue, I saw cute accessories that could be great gifts for my daughter’s birthday and/or Christmas. There is matching sleepwear that is really cute, and I know she would them, as much as she would love the little pets that you can get with their own carrier. There is also a great variety of dolls and outfits, both casual and dressy, that you can choose from.
The best thing about them is that they are more affordable than you would think. The dolls retail for $29.95 – $34.95, while the clothing and accessories range anywhere from $6.99 to $80.oo (although most are priced between $30.oo – $40.00). Make sure to check out this fantastic company, especially with the holidays coming up! You can find dollie & me at their website dollieme.com, on Facebook and on Twitter.
