The picture speaks for itself as far as beauty, but let me add a little information. This is the first prototype doll. She is St Therese. Who doesn't love St Therese? (Yes, I know I used the same word, and this time it was genuine, lets come up with a new, useful word to add to our lexicon instead of all these texting abbreviations, please!) She is gorgeous. Her habit is well designed with much attention to detail. At $100, she easily competes with those other 18" dolls that are quickly loosing their appeal in my opinion. This is a doll that can be treasured for many years and speak to a child's heart!
I am happy that the company has designed a second outfit for the doll as well as lovely accessories. The second outfit, which is so beautiful, is only $28. That is a bargain compared to many doll clothes on the market and so much more appealing. I really appreciate dolls that inspire imagination, who lead girls away from the everyday and to a kinder, gentler place. I also really appreciate that she comes with a book, a story to bring the dolls to life.
My daughter has been systematically giving away all of her doll collection--not that she was ever much of a doll aficionado. She had a couple, but they were mostly just around to ride the toy horses, which were the main attraction. I am pining to own one of these beautiful dolls and searching for a reason that I must buy one! Every time I see I beautiful, Catholic, doll accessory or outfit, I try very hard to talk Cowgirl into reconsidering her position on playing with dolls. It isn't working. BUT, I see that there are some male saint dolls in the works as well. I'm thinking that Little Man will need one of these at some point--whether he wants it or not! LOL! Unless an 18" doll is an appropriate gift for a blogger turning 40 in less than a year--not that I know any bloggers turning 40, I'm only 29. My husband can attest to it ;) (I'm hoping St Peter can overlook that little white lie.)
Without your support, this faithfilled and beautiful venture will not get off the ground. Please consider pre-ordering a doll or book or even just donating a bit of money to help this family fulfill their dream.
