I have a random collection of fun doll goodies I've accumulated in the past week or so, and thought all of you would enjoy seeing them. :)
First up, for those of you who don't know, McDonald's currently has small plush Build-A-Bear animals in their Happy Meals. These are just the right size for your 18" dolls. The animals this year have a Valentine's Day theme. Here are two of them:
A cute green froggy.
A sweet pink and white bunny.
I believe there are 6 different animals in all, if I remember correctly. They're already on #3 or #4 in our area, so if you're interested in adding these to your doll's stuffed animals, I would get to McDonald's sooner rather than later.
For the record, I like the mini Ty Beanie Babies that McDonald's does a little bit better, but these guys are cute too.
Next up, we have a doll-sized hand puppet...sort of. It doesn't actually fit over their thumb. My mom and I found these at Michael's. They're actually human finger puppets, but we think they work pretty well for dolls, too.
Mom got the cow...isn't he cute? :)
Now on to the thrift store goodies. I've been collecting vintage 80s and 90s stuff for Hayden, since I'm basically making her like me when I was 12. My mom found this really cute Rainbow Brite doll-sized nightgown at one of the thrift stores in town. I thought it would be just perfect for Hayden. :)
I was never into the Rainbow Brite cartoons as a kid (and was actually pretty disappointed the first time I watched one), but a lot of my friends had Rainbow Brite dolls. I always loved the pictures of Starlite, too. I thought that no horse could be lovelier. I was very disappointed to discover that Starlite was a boy! I'd always pictured him as a girl! He's also quite snooty and conceited in the cartoons. So I just enjoy the pictures and pretend the cartoons don't exist! ;)
Just today, I went into Salvation Army and found this adorable doll-sized radio for just $2.50. I didn't expect it to still work, but I put some new batteries in, and it worked perfectly! :) I'm thinking I'll probably put this in Maggie and Rachel's room.
The handle can come up, just like a real radio.
The speakers can also be detached, although I'll probably just keep them together.
That's all for now. Have any of you found any doll-sized treasures lately?
