February Doll Reader Magazine

There are many super articles in this issue (at least I found them very interesting!) One is about the rebirth of Nancy Ann Dolls . . . these were the popular storybook dolls in my childhood (before Ginnys). A California company that eventually died away, they have been brought back to life by sisters in California.
Another article tells us that the girls clothing company, Lipstik, has 15" hard vinyl dolls dressed in the same cool clothes!

Matching Colonial Dresses

Finally we have the girl and doll matching colonial dresses that we have been wanting for ages! They are in a colonial inspired print in a coral pink . . . and of course have deep eyelet flounces off the elbow length sleeves. We're very pleased - and think they would be perfect for a special spring dress for your girl and her 18" doll. (We even found a Felicity look-alike to model the dress!)

Gotz Items Back in Stock!

Delighted to say we have both our Doll Table Seats and the adorable 18 inch Teddy Bear PJs back for your dolls!

The Table Seats are like the ones used at American Girl Place Cafe (except in burgundy) . . . American Girl dolls and Medium or Large Baby Dolls fit into them perfectly. In fact, click on the link and see pictures of all three sizes sitting very happily at our table. One of our customers pointed out that these seats are much better than a traditional doll high chair because they don't take up much room.

Jess Models New Items!

Our Jess has arrived and is busy working already! You can see her in the new Sweetheart Jumper and also in pink lightweight PJ's (perfect for Belize!)in our webstore. She is adorable and has such a fresh face . . . I think because she doesn't have bangs. We're delighted with Jess!

Ginny 2006 Alert!

Caught a quick glimpse of a new article on Ginny Dolls in the newest issue of Collector Doll Magazine . . . you can't miss it with Ginny on the cover! It has the Ginny history but what got my attention were a few photos that I think are probably new 2006 Ginny dolls . . . there were several with flower names (I remember Lilly) wearing adorable spring dresses. As soon as we know more regarding the 2006 dolls we will certainly pass on the information!
