We all know I drop all gender stereotypes when it comes to my child. He can love pink. He can play house. He can have dolls! I am so excited to share that he fell absolutely in love with his first 18″ doll from Springfield Dolls. Savannah is a red head like his Mommy and has striking green eyes. He loves her long hair and brushing it gives him great joy. When he realized he had more than one outfit (she comes in a purple dress) for her, he was ecstatic to dress her up.
When it comes to dolls, there are many to choose from and 18″ dolls are so very popular but quality, trust, and affordability should all be features you seek when investing in dolls that children will come to love. Normally aimed at girls ages four and up I am proud to say that Savannah is holding up just nicely to a two year old boy’s love and affection.
Springfield Dolls are a division of Fibre-Craft®, LLC so it comes as no surprise that a company who has been in the craft supply business for over 60 years has created beautiful dolls that are available at your favorite craft store; Jo-Ann’s! They are available in store and are so affordable at just $21.99. The outfits will really make the personality of the doll shine. Savannah is part of the brand new boutique collection. (These new Boutique dolls and the outfits are only sold at the 850 Joann stores in 49 states.)
Simple features that stand out are the long silky hair, the eyes open and close, soft body, and the arms/legs are able to move. The fashions you can get for the dolls are all current fashions that your child(ren) would be seen wearing! The dolls themselves have been around since 1996 and are meant to inspire and give passion to your kids through social play. You can even find more items like doll furniture and accessories on the Springfield Website.
Springfield is proud to say “we know the importance of imagination and creative play in a young girl’s life.”
