On the ninth day of Christmas . . .

From the moment I laid eyes on the sweet dolls made by bumblebird™ I was smitten. They tugged at my heart in a way no other doll ever has. I ordered one for Michal and I ordered one for Kenna. I crossed my fingers that they'd feel the same way about the dolls as I did.

They were completely smitten too.

Michal and Kenna -- such naming creativity! -- sleep with Michal and Kenna every night. They've joined us on vacation. They get played with a lot.

The girls then decided Michal and Kenna needed friends so two more Bumblebird™ dolls joined our family -- also named Michal and Kenna. And I can tell you that they are equally loved and adored.

All of the dolls by bumblebird™ are created from tea stained muslin and have hand-embroidered details on their face. Their hair is made from wool felt in a variety of styles. They all have cute dresses and fun tights. And you can even buy extra dresses and pants and tops and pjs for them too.

The dolls measure about 20 inches (50cm) tall and are just indescribably cute and oh so huggable.

And guess what? bumblebird™ is offering one very lucky reader their choice of doll! To enter, visit the bumblebird™ etsy store and then come back and tell me which doll you would choose to be your very own. Because of Christmas, many of the dolls are currently sold out but you can see a much wider assortment if you click on "sales," a feature that shows prior sales. Look at the image below to see where you'll find the "sales" link in the bumblebird™ store. (Look at the bottom of the image.) Also note that the winner's doll will not ship until after the New Year.

And a funny aside, Kenna just saw me working on this post and asked, "Am I getting another doll?" I told her "no," the person who made your dolls is giving one away to someone else. To which Kenna replied, "Do you think that person would want to share with me?"

  19. Greenly and Mina! These handmade dolls (and their clothing) beat any store bought baby! Fantastic!

  20. Like everything about Jax, including his name

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love Greenley!!! I like her low pigtails!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love the one that you have...the Asian one with the black pants, with white polka dots. They are just the sweetest, your girls are. http://www.annikagrace.blogspot.com/

  23. I like the Pepper bunny, which would be great for my son. Of course, his sisters would probably like Pepper(s) without the bunny ears. Bandit is adorable too. He looks very much like Swiper the Fox.

    ReplyDelete
  24. OK, I just studied the 16 pages and my dream choice would be Greenley with black hair! I would like her to look Asian, of course and this would be the closest I think.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sweet little Leo, please! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I really like the Mina doll with the pigtails!

  31. Of all the dolls that Little T has she has 2 of them that she plays with all the time and they even sleep with her. One of them is the one I bought a from her shop! Her's has hair like the blonde one but it is black and she has smiling eyes. I would love one that is similar except with they open eyes!! Greenly and Pepper! :)

    Hugs,
    Carla

    Greenley or Olive Elf, please. I must say, this is a very timely post. We were just "discussing" how sad we will be when our Elf Christmas has to go back to the North Pole and that it sure would be nice to have an Elf to sleep with until our Christmas Elf comes back at Thanksgiving, and that it sure would be nice for an elf to see how we celebrate Valentine's Day and even the 4th of July and to have a good night sleep with every night....yes, it sure would be nice(!) The dolls are perfectly wonderful. Thank you. Jeanne

  63. Mina, Pepper, Ginger, Ruby Greenley...sigh...they're all so sweet! I think Greenley stole my heart, though! Of course, I'd need to purchase another as I have twin toddlers and doll sharing is not something they do well.

    I love Pepper! Probably because she reminds me of my Guangdong twins, especially when I can get them to wear pigtails.
    Very cute, I love that there are clothes for them.
