There are dolls and then there are dolls that are more heirloom dolls, a doll that you’d want to not only play with but make sure you keep and hand it down to generations that follow. AmericanGirl dolls aren’t just your typical dolls, they’re so much more. When I was a little girl I remember looking through American Girl magazines. I was so fascinated with the little girls with the great stories and lives you could peek into with these dolls.
From the great clothing to the amazing accessories. I always loved checking into the back of the book to look at the Bitty Baby’s they were always adorable. I so wanted a Bitty Baby of my own, a baby that would look like me, a baby I could care for and love. Back then, the selection of Bitty babies were not as vast as the selection is now.
Now there are 11 options with lots of combinations of light and dark skin and eyes. Having such a great selection would make it easier to get a baby that looks just like your little one. With the new Bitty babies you can pick skin tone, eye color, and hair color to truly customize your child’s Bitty Baby experience.
The new Bitty Baby collection will include 5 hardcover books: Bitty Baby and Me, Bitty Baby at the Ballet, Bitty Baby Loves the Show, Bitty Baby the Brave, and Princess Bitty Baby. The books are written by Pacific Northwest author and Newberry Awardee, Kirby Larson, and illustrated by award winning illustrator Sue Cornelison.
In addition to great story that little girls will love, each book will include a parents’ section this section will help break down the lessons of the book. What a wonderful idea!
My daughter loved sharing this book with her American Girl doll Saige, and she loved sharing the story with her little cousin. He cousin Mary is 3.5 years old and she was fascinated with the cute little story. She wanted my daughter to read it to her again and again. The book had a great story and wonderful illustrations.
The Bitty Baby dolls can be bought in several different ways. You can purchase the Doll & Book for $55.00 The Doll, and Book and Accessories for $125.00. Or you could purchase the book alone for $14.98. I know what will be on my daughters Christmas gift list this year, I am sure a Bitty Baby and some accessories to take care of this special doll will be on the wish list this year.
