Dress-A-Mee Dolls

I used to love paper dolls as a kid. I loved punching out all of the clothing options and would play for hours dressing and redressing them. Though I remember them fondly, I also remember being so frustrated at how easily they tore or got wrecked. They certainly weren't *built to last*, but they sure were fun. I'm pretty certain I have found the next best thing. When I saw that a friend of mine had joined this group on facebook - Dress-A-Mee Dolls - I had to check it out. I loved the idea immediately and was so excited at the prospect of providing my daughter (and son too, truth be told he loves barbies and such as much as she does.lol) with a little taste of my childhood.

I was so excited when Ginger agreed to send an item for review. In my opinion, she went above and beyond, sending me a fun little sampler package with 2 dolls and a bunch of clothing options. This is sooo handy so my kids don't fight over them. I love that they are heat seal-laminated and so durable, so they are free from risk of being ruined...and the items are so adorable, I can see the storylines now :) There is no shortage of options - halloween costumes, church clothes, pop star costumes, beach wear, pyjamas, etc. Each item attaches with masking tape (or any other kind of tape you prefer), though I'm personally inclined to add magnets to the back of all of our pieces. I think it will just make them that much easier.

I am really thrilled with these and think they are not only adorable, but well made. Sometimes I think we are so bombarded by all the *new things* that we forget all the fun and simple things we grew up with. It's nice to go back to the basics every once in a while...and these will help you do just that. Perfect for a car ride, at the doctor's office, church, a funeral, or wedding, etc. And so easy to tote around - I'm so used to having barbie legs sticking out of my purse, this will be a nice change. (ooo Ginger, can you make a mermaid costume?? like maybe a disney princess dress set?? my son would love you forever!!). I also love that these dolls are designed to look like *healthy* boys and girls - without being made out to look like mini models. Yes you read right - boys too....there are sets for both. Awesome!

Ginger is again going above and beyond and offering prizes for THREE winners! The first winner will receive a Starter pack which includes two dolls, two sets of clothes and one set of accessories. And TWO teaser packs containing one doll and one set of clothes for the other two winners.
