Ava was really taken with Ruby... for about 20 minutes, and then quickly moved back to her normal dolls. I suppose her baby Annabel and her cabbage patch doll are just more realistic...
Meanwhile, in the corner, somebody else was taking a real interest in the thrown-by-the-wayside Little Us doll. Our four month old had managed to reach out and grab her hair and spent the next half an hour handling the dolly, sucking on its feet and pulling its hair.
She absolutely loves her!
To be fair, the people at "Little Us" have clearly done their research and know their market... Ava will be two in a month, and probably has outgrown the whole idea behind the Little Us doll, but Heidi? She was enamoured! And the best part was, I didn't need to worry about leaving her with her. There are no small parts, the dolls are totally soft and baby friendly!
Each doll comes with her own unique personality... there are four to choose from... Chloe who loves everything pink, Amelia who loves animals and reading, Ruby who's the cheeky one (trust us to get sent this one!!) and Millie, the tomboy of the group!
They make an absolutely perfect first doll, measuring in at around 12 inches, and are lovely and soft and cuddly. Heidi has discovered her early, so I'm so pleased that she will get really good use out of her lovely Ruby doll!
You can find out more about Little Us dolls on their Facebook page, and they will be available to buy in Harrods, Hamley's, Debenhams and on Amazon for £9.99...
Worth every penny for one happy little Bubba!
