Ever since having my daughter I have just adored looking in the Mamas and Papas store and just wishing I could afford most of the things in there, sadly most of the things in there were out of my price range! Coming up to Christmas when my daughter was about to turn one I saw they were selling the most gorgeous rag doll (and coming from someone who really doesn't like dolls thats saying something!), however I had left my debit card at home so wasn't able to purchase it so I planned to call back at a later date. Of course when I went back they were sold out of the doll I had seen and loved - it was a Christmas special - and they had the Berry Rag Doll instead. I didn't like it just as much as the other but it was still a beautiful doll so I decided to buy that instead.
The rag doll is a soft bodied doll and is extremely cuddly! She is 43cm tall, so thats quite tall for a doll! She is wearing little cord shorts, a floral blouse and has sewn on chunky brown shoes (sounds delightful doesn't it?!?) Her hair is tied into bunches, with ribbon the same as her blouse and the hair is a brown shade that just co-ordinates with the clothes perfectly. Tied around her wrist is a little tag which is held in place by velcro, and has "Once upon a time" written on it, it looks like a large gift tag. The doll is a pale cream colour, and she has a very simple face but at the same time it is a really pretty face, brown stitched eyes, a pink stitched nose and mouth and little rosy cheeks. The clothes and tag are removable which is good for washing, and also fun for your child to strip her off (if she's anything like my daughter!)
Being from the Mamas and Papas store you automatically expect quality and this is certainly no exception at all. It is absolutely fantastic both in feel and looks, very cuddly and will look right in place in any nursery.
This gorgeous rag doll is sold for £18.00 which may seem expensive for a doll, but for something of this quality and from this store I think its a decent price and a lovely present or a one off treat for your little girl!
There isn't a single thing I can say against this doll, I cannot fault it at all. My daughter absolutely adores her and sleeps with her in her cot every night. My daughter named her doll Mollie (well I guess it came from me really but she seemed to like it and it stuck straight away) and whenever she is feeling a bit off, or tired, she will ask for her doll so I think that she likes her as a bit of a comforter. I like how this doll is suitable from birth, as many dolls are usually for older children, but there really is nothing on her which could prove to be a hazard for baby.
A really lovely doll, from a lovely make and I am glad I finally got something from the elusive store!!
Five out of five Dooyoo stars from me!!
