Perfect #ChristmasGift for her! Sassy and Classy Doll! #DollieAndMe

Dollie and Me | Mommy GogglesI have a little girl that loves to get dirty, but she also is a girly girl that has an amazing imagination and loves her babies. I’ve been looking around for a doll for her, but I really didn’t like the thought of spending over $100 on one doll, let alone one single gift for her birthday or Christmas. I’ve found a few dolls that claimed to be similar, however they weren’t made or approved for the smaller girls under around 7 years old. We had the opportunity to see and ‘get to know’ the Sassy and Classy Dollie from Dollie & Me.

The detail to this doll is simply amazing. The Sassy and Classy Dollie comes dressed and ready to go. We chose this dollie because she has the exact feel for the personality just as my daughter does – sassy and classy.

Details on Clothing:

She comes dressed with an adorable outfit, that matches my daughter to a tee. The details on every single piece of her clothing pieces are so detailed and so perfect.

Sassy and Classy Dollie comes dressed with:

  • Sleeveless heather grey cotton t-shirt with pink and blue ruche-front detail
  • Pink calico mini-floral cotton print two-tier skirt with ecru eyelet lace trim
  • Braided gold-lame tasseled belt
  • Marching Band inspired brown jacket lined in matching pink calico cotton, and with faux-brass button screen print detail
  • White cotton panties
  • Suede and molded plastic slouch boots

The details on her fingers and tows are perfect and so detailed. My 6 year old wanted to paint her fingernails, but I found a way to pry the polish from her hands.

Madeline’ comes with some of the cutest boots that I’ve ever seen. If I could get these in my size, I’d be writing a whole other post on them.

Safety:

As a parent, safety is a must with any product, toy or doll that we get for the kids. I know what you’re thinking… what does a doll and safety have anything to do with each other? The body of the Dollie & Me doll is a mixture of half hard and half soft, she is still very huggable and lovable. While the $100 doll is the soft all over her upper torso, she has strings coming out of the back of her that you can’t cut or tuck without it being noticeable. This may sound kind of weird, but it’s really nice not having that string. Also, with the expensive doll, the upper torso area is all fabric, so her joints are expandable… meaning that your child can pull the arm out of her socket easier and possibly pinch their fingers. Personally, I like the build of the Dollie & Me Dollie more. This is also a better feature for the younger girls, 3 and older, because the pricey dolls are meant for the older girls around 6 and older. Dollie & Me Dolls are designed for the younger crowd; 3 and over.

With Dollie & Me, her features are so detailed and so beautiful! Her eyes are a gorgeous crystal color. Her eyebrows are detailed and realistic. The features of her nose are stunning, she has lipgloss on which accents the shape her her realistic mouth and her eyelashes are perfect.

Here are some of our personal thoughts about our Dollie and Me doll:

Pros

  • Well, right off the bat, the price tag is a huge pro. $40 compared to $100. As a parent on a budget, this is a big plus.
  • Her arms and legs aren’t ‘spring action’ so when they are pulled, they stay. They don’t pop out and get hair or little fingers caught.
  • Her clothes are (literally) exactly what my 6 year old wears. (Miss fashionista!)
  • Her features are very realistic.
  • How can I not mention that she has affordable outfits AND matching doll outfits for your diva as well? Oh my gosh, the prices are amazing! Kambry loves to match her baby, especially when we travel and have a family event.
  • Styles… styles, styles, styles. They have tons of different styles to choose from. Great selection!

Kambry’s personal words (and I quote):

  • I love her hair because its pretty and the eyes because they’re blue like mine.
  • I love her headband. Can I have one?
  • I love the clothes because they’re awesome. I want boots like those too.
  • I love that the arms and legs because they are (as she says) ‘Are easier to turn and hug me’

Cons

  • So far, we’ve really only had one con… it was when we first opened the package and a lot of her hair seemed to be half in (or half out?) so she lost a lot of her hair, however you can’t see where it came from, so there’s no bald spots.

To be honest, we don’t really have any dislikes, other than the out of packaging where some of her hair came out, but ever since she’s been ‘in Kambry’s care’, we haven’t had any more hair come out and everything has been simply perfect. We figure this was a part of manufacturing and probably normal for the type of hair that she has.

Overall, we highly recommend Dollie and Me to anyone that asks what doll to get their little girl.
