“ Manufacturer: Toys R Us / Type: Doll „
I admit that I am not a girly girl and for that reason dolls weren't high up on my list of things to buy my daughter - not that I wanted to deprive her of them but simply because it didn't really cross my mind. She has quite a few teddies but no dolls. Shopping at Toys R Us with my Grandma one day, she saw a basket full of cute little rag dolls and asked if she could buy one for my little girl, so after asking my daughter if she would like one we let her choose her own.
The rag doll is a soft bodied doll with a hard face and hands. She comes in a little purple dress with a stripey top underneath, stripey tights and little soft purple shoes which are attached so not removeable. Her hair is in plaited bunches and is made out of wool and depending on the doll you choose it is either light brown or yellow wool. This doll is a really good size at 38cm tall and I think it is just the right size for a toddler to play with.
To my surprise this doll is actually really good quality, my daughter has had it for around 18 months now and it still looks like new - even after being dunked in the bath, dragged around the floor and all the other stuff children get up to! I have sponge cleaned the dolls dress a couple of times as I don't want to put it in the washing machine in case it gets spoilt.
This cute little rag doll is just £4.99 from Toys R Us, which is a really good price for such a good quality doll.
I really cannot fault this doll in the slightest, its good quality, cute, and cheap! My daughter absolutely adores her and we often end up taking her out with us, whether it be shopping or visiting family. For some reason my daughter named her doll Phoebe and she just really seems to suit the name! There is so many ways to play with this doll, my daughter puts her in the pram, "feeds" her in the highchair, puts her to sleep in the cot, dances with her - the list is endless! I would really recommend this doll, it has been a great buy!
Five out of five Doooyoo stars from me!!
