The Simpli Jessi and Little Sidekick dolls are my favourites! Last year for Christmas, we gave Olive (then one) a moover pram and I made her a doll (The coat/dress/body made from the white fluffy coat she wore as a newborn. To my surprise, she has not destroyed it. I think nice handmade dolls are totally worth it! Great selection.

I agree – handmade dols stand up just fine. And in many ways I think they show a little well-weathered loving better than store-bought versions!

We have a mouse with red boots (and a sea green dress) made by you and my little girl loves her! We will definitely be back for more. The mouse is so unique and original and so well-made, we treasure her everyday!

My 3 y.o. daughter gives the bunny with the blue dress and ears her personal “I WANT THAT!” seal of approval. Great selection overall.
