18″ Laura Ingalls Doll Review + Giveaway


If you grew up in the 70’s or 80’s – there is a good chance you were a huge fan of the “Little House on the Prairie” TV series. Or maybe you were a bigger fan of the book series written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Either way – the show and the books were and still are loved by so many generations.

Thanks to the cozy, warm, and affectionate portrayal of the Ingalls family across all kinds of media platforms around the world, many people think of Ma, Pa, Mary, Laura, Carrie, Grace, Almanzo, and even Jack the bulldog as part of their family.

We were lucky to have had the opportunity to review this beautiful – and very lifelike 18” Laura Ingalls Wilder Doll from The Queens Treasures collection.  The doll itself came in a beautiful box that could be used to store it in if someone wanted to save it as a collector’s item. But, if you are like us, and wanted to pull her out to love and cuddle her – you will love how soft she is! The doll also came with a patchwork quilt, pillow, a small doll and an informational brochure.

The Queens Treasures did an incredible job of capturing Laura’s spirit in this doll. If you want an even bigger pioneer experience, they also have some really fun accessories that go with the doll too! You can purchase Jack the dog, a covered wagon, horses, dishware and so much more.

Whether you are using the books for educational purposes or just reliving a childhood favorite – children and adults alike can let their childhood imagination run wild with this doll and accessories.

The Laura Ingalls 18″ doll is available online at TheQueensTreasures.com and Target.com for $99.99. A full line of accessories is available at http://www.thequeenstreasures.com/new-products/little-house-on-the-prairie-18-doll-line.html

My son used to watch the TV show Caillou quite a lot before he went to school this year.  It comes on in the early morning here, so he doesn’t watch it as much anymore.  He still likes to play with his toys from the show, however, so he was excited when he got into the car after I picked him up from kindergarten the other day and found this guy waiting in the backseat.

03 20 14 020The new Caillou Talking Doll is to be released April 1st for $34.99 online and in specialty stores across the country.  You can also get books, apparel, DVDs, and other toys in “big box” and specialty stores nationwide.  Caillou has been on the air on PBS for 15 years, and this year celebrates it’s 25th anniversary.
