2 First Holy Communion Gifts – Dolls to be played with and cherished
1. Editor’s Note
Pink blossom on trees, lilac wisteria on houses and bluebells in woods have inspired our homepage colour scheme and this edition of Doll In-Site magazine.
We feature First Holy Communion dolls as perfect gifts for the occasion. Not only will these celebratory dolls be cherished forever, they have immediate play potential. It’s why we loves dolls as gifts!
We’re picnicking in our shorts and t-shirts in May. The New section abounds with shorts, t-shirts, Summer dresses and picnic accessories for dolls.
As always there’s excitement here with Mini Maru dolls Savannah and Chad arriving in a week, just after our customised Schildkrot Wichtel dolls reach us. Continue reading for more info…
The Gallery Spot features a photo from the doll forum and we have a thank you gift in the post to the member who posted the pic. Enjoy the magazine!
2. First Holy Communion Gifts
Dolls to be played with and cherished
Why is a doll a good gift to give a child celebrating their First Holy Communion?
Perhaps you’re trying to decide between a doll and another gift. Here’s why we believe a doll is a fabulous gift to give. Beautiful dolls touch our hearts in a way that objects rarely can. A very specially selected gift will have the recipient remembering your thoughtfulness for a long time. It’s quite hard to find these dolls on the internet and I’d guess nearly impossible in the shops, therefore people will know you must have unturned a few stones to find this treasure. Children always remember who gave them what!!!
Picnic With Dolls
Is there a more lovely way to spend the Summer than having picnics al fresco? We love the idea of a picnic with dolls, children, parents and grandparents sat together on a rug eating sandwiches prepared earlier, packed in foil or tupperware, popped into a basket. We say the sun is out, so pack up your hampers and head off for a dolly picnic! Memories are made of afternoons like this.
The picnic is a great British tradition originating 200 years ago, now celebrated nationally each year. National Picnic Week has an official date in the calendar between 16th-25th June in 2017.
We set the hamper down in all kinds of places: beside lakes, in the middle of green fields, even beautiful sandy beaches, tucking into everything from sandwiches and milkshakes to scrumptious pink iced doughnuts! No reason why you can’t pack pizza and a fizzy drink either – whatever you enjoy!
We’re delighted to introduce Susan Brewer to our readers. Some of you may already know Susan from Doll Showcase magazine, or as the author of your favourite doll books.
“I can’t remember a time when I didn’t own a doll. Even as a baby I had a cloth Baby Bunting doll, which was very fashionable at the time, and I suppose I must have had a dozen or so composition and hard plastic dolls (not including the miniatures in my dolls house), before it was time to ‘give them up as I was a big girl now’…”.
The end of May heralds the arrival of the much anticipated latest two Mini dolls from Maru and Friends: Mini Savannah and Mini Chad. They join Mini Maru and Mini Tanya dolls. Maru and Friends had a unique idea inspired by a personal story about a real Latina child migrating to USA and adapting to life there. They brought their idea to life using their own vision, a master doll artist, high-quality materials, and impressive attention to detail.
Now they’ve replicated this vision in the increasingly popular “mini doll” category to create a set of four 33cm tall doll friends. The latest to join the series are Mini Savannah and Mini Chad. The arrival of Mini Savannah and Chad at My Doll Best Friend is…
Schildkrot Toddler Dolls
Schildkrot toddler dolls are mesmerising and I can only imagine the joy of being a child and having one of these dolls in my arms. We’ve just bought two varieties, both 37cm in length which is perfect for young children. The first is Strampelchen and the second is Schlummerle. Their distinct difference is a different face, the first having painted eyes and the latter having closing or sleep eyes.
Dolls give your legs some love! Whether your dolls keep them for holidays abroad or they just like spending the weekends chilling in them, our blue denim, white denim and cool cotton shorts have you sorted.
