    Default Show me your little girls' doll/s.

    I'm looking for a doll, don't know which one yet- but I'll know when I see it.

    Have been on eBay... some very creepy looking dolls there! (as well as the usual Baby Borns ect ect)

    Idealistically, I'd like one that's around 19 inches long so that DD2 (when she's old enough) can put the baby clothes she used to wear on it

    So, as the title says...

    I love dolls, so much. I have a huge collection, but for what you want, I'd recommend a Waldorf/Steiner doll.

    They're a good shape for baby clothes, but you'll need a big one. They're not too hard to make yourself either if you can sew.

    The neutral expression is supposed to promote imaginative play.

    Please don't quote this post, as I'll be removing the photo links after OP has seen them.

    My pair have about 4 dolls each. But their favorite are their Dora dolls. They are about the same size as an average weight/height newborn. They come with hair to brush and they are the right size and shape to put either dolls or baby clothes on them.

    For size I'd suggest the choo choo doll, she talks and makes other noises (some a little suss) but DD has had her since she was 3 and still loves her and she fits newborn clothes perfectly.

    Here she is ImageUploadedByBub Hub1331693726.663763.jpg

    DD has many other dolls but they are all smaller and this is by far her favourite.

    Some I got for free in exchange for marketing and promotional materials (score, 1 hours work for gorgeous handmade goodness), the rest were between $90 and $180AUD, depending on size. They come fully clothed (even undies!).

    A few are from Australia, most are from the USA, the brown one is from South Africa.

    It seems like a lot at first glance, but it's a labour of love who will be your childs special friend. I can justify spending a bit more on them as I know they're a lifelong toy (I still have mine from my childhood!).
