Magnetic Dress-Up Dolls


O LOVES her new magnetic wooden dress-up dolls! These were a birthday gift, and they are definitely one of her most played with gifts :) She plays with these dolls everyday, and I am planning on eventually making an O doll that is the same size. So many plans, so little time... The dolls are made by Melissa and Doug. They are very sturdy and will last a long time...if we don't lose the pieces :)

  2. We have the Princess ones too, Snow White loves them. I love the idea of making a doll that looks like her, thanks for the idea!

  3. I just smile when I read your blog. It sounds so much like my family. My daughter also loves the M&D magnetic dolls. She has the princess and the ballerina, and we keep all of the pieces (dolls, stands, accessories) in a plastic bin with a lid. :-) She uses the trays in her play kitchen.

    We have also enjoyed the IKEA abacus that you wrote about in your last post.

  4. I always see these and wonder about them. We don't have a girl yet but now that I know they are a hit, I think they would be great birthday gifts!

  5. I have the M&D Ballerina ones, and my 7 and 9 year old still play with them sometimes.

    I've even been known to play with them a bit myself! LOL

  6. We have those :) We keep our pieces in a little baggie instead of just in the box they came in.

  8. Just as an FYI: I just picked up a set of those at an OshKosh outlet store - they were 50% off.

  10. There are also really cute felt dolls where you can send the picture of the child to have it made into a felt paper doll, from Story Time Felts! :) http://www.funfelt.com/photo-dolls.html Just another idea if you are looking for something with a picture! So cute!

  14. We have a couple of these doll sets. I ditched the open box that they came with. Wipes Boxes work much better.
