With the addition of Lila and Jules, both interactive 17 inch Baby Dolls by Corolle, we realized that we needed special outfits for their special size. Now the 17 inch Baby Doll Clothing is available - we have six special outfits and one more coming (a Pink Fleece set)
Now they can be dressed for play and parties . . . or rocked to sleep in our wood cradle!

American Girl Fashion Show!
The Children's Hospital in our area put on an American Girl Fashion Show as a fundraiser this week and was it fun!
My niece and grand-niece went with me - we and our dolls had a grand time! My great niece is 8 and has had her AGOT doll for almost a year. For some reason, they wore matching Colonial dresses from DollCloset.com !! I brought my new Emily in her red, white and blue dress and my niece had her Kirsten that she got when she was in college.
Lots of little girls and Moms and Grandmoms etc - quite a few dolls and girls were dressed alike. Our table wasn't full, but the other girl there & her doll had a matching "fur" coat (Grandma made) . . . and matching eyeglasses.
The Fashion Show was longer than I remembered and did include some of the old Pleasant Company Girls dresses such as Addy's and Samantha's Christmas dress etc. (Did you notice that we have a new Samantha dress almost like it now?) They definitely had ALL the matching nightgowns and PJs in addition to the modern outfits available now from American Girl . . . including that Mattel Pink holiday dress (my adult niece agreed that it looked a little like Barbie!)
There were some door prize drawings and a little store as you entered (& left) with T-shirts, books, mini-dolls etc. I used to attend these when Pleasant Rowland was in charge and there was a bigger emphasis on taking orders from the catalogs because then a percentage of the sales went to the Charity putting it on . . . there were catalogs there but the selling was real low key . . . which frankly was nice!!
I must say that the Fashion Show models were really first rate - not sure if they were professionals or not but they did a great job. There were even some little ones modeling Bitty Baby items and a pair of twins in those cute denim dresses - everyone said "Aww" when they came out!

The Importance of Pretend Play
Pretend play can also be called role play which means "to act out or translate into action". Experts agree that "preschoolers are masters of make believe. They like to act out grownup roles and enjoy costumes and props to help them bring their imaginations to life".
Toys that inspire pretend play and allow children to imitate mom or dad are very important . . . and can be found at DollCloset.com!
Examples are the Toy Booster Seat which helps children learn about car safety for not only their dolls or stuffed animal but for their selves.
More examples are the Dress-up Costumes available and the Tea Party Sets. Coming soon is a "Silver" Service and a Junior Chef Cookware Set!
