I’ve been looking for an extra special doll for my oldest daughter. One that’s a step up from her plastic baby dolls and one she might keep forever, perhaps pass on down to her daughter one day. Thanks to My BFF Dolls, and the wonderful opportunity to review their new line of dolls, I think I may have found that special doll. My BFF Dolls are extra special because they are a fun line of create-your-own dolls that you and your child design together. From the creators of MyTwinn Dolls, My BFF (best friend forever) doll, gives girls the opportunity to become virtual “doll makers,” right at their own computer. The process is quite simple too:
1. Log onto www.MyBFFDoll.com and click “Start” to begin designing your own doll.
2. Create! Customizable features include: six face shape options, four skin tone options, nine eye color options, 12 hair style options, 5 hair color options, the option of adding earrings and eyeglasses and 10 clothing options.
The design step was so much fun for both my daughter and I. We enjoyed mixing up the features and creating a few different dolls. Finally, my daughter chose a doll that was most similar to her, short blonde hair, blue eyes and selected a sweet pink tee and jeans. Oh, and sunglasses, a girl can’t forget those accessories! You also get to pick out a name so we named our doll Clare, which is my daughter’s middle name.
3. If you need to, you can save your doll to complete it later as well as share your completed images with friends and family.
4.When you’re ready, place your order! Because My BFF dolls are hand-crafted one doll at a time, it takes about 2 – 3 weeks to arrive, but believe me, the wait is well worth it!
Two weeks after placing our order, the My BFF doll arrived in a carefully packaged box. This is, with all honesty, the most stunning doll I’ve ever seen. My husband was quite impressed as well! It’s not just all the wonderful hand painted details and quality materials that I adore, but the uniqueness of this doll and the fact that is was designed with love by my daughter and I.
The first feature that caught my attention was her eyes! They truly sparkle and have the most amazing lashes. Her hair, which is super soft and shiny, is also thick and easy to manage. I know that sounds like a shampoo commercial, but it’s the truth, the materials are high quality and I have no fear that it will last many rounds of hair salon play with my daughter.
Included with our package was a Doll Care Guide that provides cleaning and care tips. If there is an unfortunate event and your doll needs repair, there is also a Doll Hospital Admissions Form with various services you can select and their prices. These services include: Doll Makeovers, Heirloom Restoration, replacing eyelashes, new hair (just in case there is that accidental hair cutting episode) and you can even get your doll’s ears pierced.
My BFF dolls are 23 inches tall and can stand on their own. Each doll features 18 joints along the body and can pose in hundreds of positions. My BFF Dolls are compatible with My Twinn clothing and accessories for optimal playtime fun. Each doll retails for $149 and more information, including special bonus offers, can be found at www.myBFFDoll.com or www.mytwinn.com.
I heart our new BFF Doll!
