Little House On The Prairie was my very favorite childhood book series. I read each book several times over and would sneak them under my pillow so I could read them at night when I was supposed to be in bed. I would imagine how much fun it would be to be alive back then and do all of the things that Laura did. Especially wearing those cute boots and dresses! One thing I never had was a Laura Ingalls doll. Thanks to The Queen's Treasures, they exist now and they are just as adorable as I imagined!
I've been debating whether or not this doll would go into my own collection or would my youngest daughter be successful in her many attempts in trying to take Laura for her very own. She's also a Little House On The Prairie fan and has her own books but, this is something I have been hoping for for so long! (Of course, I figure she will end up winning. They always do.) But, for now, she plays with her quite a bit. Usually when they are reading some of Laura's own books!
Plus, the Laura Ingalls doll has a few things in common with her other 18" dolls. They can wear each other's clothing and even hang out at a tea party or just sit on her bed. We have been checking out all of the clothing and other products that The Queen's Treasure offers on their website and we are planning a day to visit the store. (We aren't so far away so we're thinking maybe after winter!)
The doll is very well made, as you can see. A lot of detail went into this as well as excellent craftsmanship! She comes with this cute patchwork quilt, her eyelet ruffle front nightgown and cap, a pillow and her little ragdoll. The box itself can easily be converted into a bed! Her eyes close when she lies down and open when she wakes up! This is definitely the type of doll that could and should be handed down and will indeed last for a very long time. I would have to say that the quality is nothing short than exceptional. We have 2 daughters and 2 granddaughters and I've had dolls myself, so, I have seen some on both ends of the spectrum. I would place this doll and all of the tiny details from the hair, to the nightie, to the ragdoll, and the beautiful patchwork quilt, in a 5 star rating. (I'd even add a few +++++'s there too!)
The Queen's Treasures is very generously offering this giveaway which is perfect for the holiday season! I would be ecstatic to own a collection like the winner will be receiving!
