Toys!

How was your Christmas?

We had too much fun! 

My girls fave gift was from Daddy:




Ummmm, ya.  They pretty much love it.  We even figured out a way to set it up in our living room.  Crazy, right?

And it was finally something that held their attention for more than a minute, unlike every other toy we own in our home.  It is something that completely confuses me.  When I was a kid, I played dolls hour after hour after hour.  Until I was like 16 or so.

No, really.

And I have to say, I still kinda have a 'thing' for dolls.  If I had the money and the space, I would love to collect them.

And I would start with the cute little Blythe dolls that they sell with Littlest Pet Shop.


Aren't these adorable?  Sooo, sooo. . . . vintage-y!  I would love to have a 'real' one, but goodness!  So expensive!  (I've considered stealing borrowing my girls little Blythe dolls, but it is amazing how quickly they can lose the shoes and rat the hair!)

Another of my current favorites are the Lalaloopsy dolls.


How fun would it be to sew for these little cuties?  A great way to use up scraps.

But alas. . .

Not enough time. . . not enough money. . . not enough space.

Do you have a favorite doll? 
What toy do you wish Santa had left for you under the tree?

No favorite toy that I wished Santa would've left but a live in Nanny!! That's what I want for Christmas next year! :)

Sometimes I pine for a Blythe, too, and have eyeballed the Littlest Pet Shop ones.

But I most want an American Girl doll--it's one toy that I really wanted as a child but never got (they're so ridiculously expensive, and as a child I couldn't even ask my parents for one). I lucked out and have two daughters, so more dolls are in my future, but some days I think I wouldn't mind one for myself.

Have you seen the Calico Critters? Hannah went crazy over them today at the toy store. She spent her Christmas money on them today. LOVE them!!

I want a long arm quilter.... but I don't think THAT Christmas will ever come. *sigh*

I absolutely ADORE the lalaloopsy dolls. I'm restraining myself though because last time I bought my daughter a doll that I loved, she stared at it and went, "I no like it."
