Beth’s Best Back to School Shopping for 18″Dolls

The end of August is rapidly approaching and that means Beth’s Best takes the 18″ dolls Back to School Shopping! It is rivaled only by shopping for school supplies, which the girls may be doing soon.  Fortunately for Sophia, Julia and Catherine, there was a new boutique that opened with a great selection of Back to School outfits for 18″ dolls.  Catherine was immediately drawn to a super cute 2 piece leggings set  DRTSD-BK for 18 inch dolls. The long sleeve tunic length top has a scooped neckline with an oversized matching satin bow detail. It is just perfect for the cooler fall temperatures ahead and the sequin trimmed black leggings were just her style. A special treat was the purchase of a zebra print handbag SH-ABZ and a pair of jeweled toe ballerina flats   that fit 18″ dolls S1LJ-BY. While styled like a shoulder bag, the purse is rounded with the large strap built into the design and the hot pink satin trim just pops against the black and white print. DRTLP-IS,  black leather pants, a multicolored sweater and infinity scarf 3 piece pants outfit Continue Reading →

Beth’s Best Starting Preseason Soccer Practice for 18”Dolls

Beth’s Best is highlighting preseason soccer practice for our 18” dolls. As much as the girls are loving summer vacation, Sophia and Carly are looking forward to preseason soccer practice at the new middle school field. For now, they are only having practice once daily, but as the school year gets closer, there will be the dreaded “two-a-days”.  This means early morning practice and a late afternoon practice and lots of icing in between!  Today Carly’s mom drove Sophia and Carly to the fields.  Carly was happy to be wearing last year’s jersey DRSO-ST. The bright star pattern jersey in this 18in doll 3 piece soccer outfit was fitting for the team name, The Superstars. Her feet didn’t grow much this summer so her last season’s black cleats for 18”dolls SSC still fit even under the heavy soccer socks, DNSK-BK. Sophia’s travel team uniform 3 piece soccer set for 18 inch dolls, DRSO-FS has a shimmery hot pink jersey which  matched perfectly with the fuchsia 18” doll soccer shoes SSC-FS they wore.

Not long after being dropped off at the fields and going through the warm up exercises, the sky Continue Reading →

Beth’s Best Camping Adventure with 18″ Dolls

Beth’s Best takes the 18″ dolls on a camping adventure.  Carly’s parents have a small camper and invited Sophia and Catherine along for a few days in the great outdoors. They usually frequent a campground only a short 2 hr drive from their neighborhood. It has a super fun lake with a floating dock they can swim out to.  Carly brought her spacious purple Coleman tent that fits American Girl dolls, JL-T-PU so that they can spend the night outdoors (away from the grown ups!) and stay up a bit later than usual laughing and telling stories. This 18″ doll tent  will sleep all of them very comfortably and they can even stand up inside.  Since the weather has been so hot, swimming, tubing and staying close to the lake was all the girls could think of.  Coincidentally, bathing suits take up very little space in a backpack MABP-LP and will certainly be the preferred outfit throughout the weekend. Carly‘s 18 inch doll swimsuit felt a bit “dressy” for this trip but she adores it and wears it all of the time.  DRBOS-BK is a black polka dot one piece 18″ doll swimsuit Continue Reading →

Beth’s Best Horseback Riding Camp 18″ Dolls

Beth’s Best has the 18″ dolls going off to Horseback Riding Camp.  Sophia and Julia were excited to go together to camp for a week.  This is a new experience for them and a bit of a reward for having done so well during the school year. After a few days of learning about how to care for their horses, both girls improved their riding skills enough to go out by themselves to the beach. Diamond and Clipper, Sophia and Julia’s horses LA-HL seemed eager to get out of the barn and onto the beach as well.  Being intermediate riders, they both wore their black riding helmets for 18″ dolls DNRH-BK, however, Julia just had to wear her HCG-WH white cowgirl hat for 18in dolls over top of hers.  She was going for a western look even though she was saddled up with traditional English gear. Even her 18″ silver cowgirl boots, SCB-SL have a bit of a western vibe! Since she didn’t have a western themed shirt for 18 inch dolls, she chose to wear her favorite accessory, purses by wearing SPGP-PP. Due to the Continue Reading →

Beth’s Best Fashion Show Fundraiser for 18″Dolls

The girls love dressing up and helping their community, so Beth’s Best is having a fashion show fundraiser. Since Sophia’s family has a rescue dog and Carly’s family just adopted a cat,  their fundraiser will support the ASPCA. Our first contestant, Carly wore a stunning blue spaghetti strap dress with a matching hair accessory,  shawl and purse DRSDT-AC.  Her metallic teal shoes SUB-TL were a perfect match and made it easy to move about the stage while she sang “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the talent portion! Catherine was excited to wear her rainbow two piece bikini with the matching skirt DRBSB-RB.  for the swimsuit competition.  It is her favorite 3 piece bathing suit for 18in dolls  because if she wants an easy cover-up, she just puts the skirt on over the bikini bottoms. The yellow ring details are fun. Strutting down the runway in her polka dot flip flops STFF-AQ certainly caught the judges eye! These unique sandals for 18″ dolls fit snugly at the toe and have an elastic strap to be sure they stay put! Sophia was the top fundraiser for the ASPCA and Continue Reading →

Posted on by Tori Hall

As the school year comes to a close, Beth’s Best is celebrating 18″ dolls’ graduations.  Sophia, Julia and Catherine are all graduating from high school.  These three gals have been together since elementary school and will have the summer to spend together before heading off in different directions.  Much time was spent deciding on what 18 inch doll clothes to wear underneath their cap and gown, DRGCG.

Since Memorial Day was so rainy, Beth’s Best is taking her 18″ dolls camping since the weather report is much more promising. Catherine, Julia and Sophia did some camping with the scout program but it has been awhile! Time to dust off the camping gear, toss  some clothes into a backpack and head out to the wilderness…aka the local campground! Upon arriving at their spot, they started to unpacked the car, LA-V. Thank goodness it’s a convertible  doll size vehicle because there was a ton of stuff! First thing was putting up the hot pink18″ doll tent  CAT-HP! With all the pieces tucked into its carry bag, it was up in a flash. Big enough for all three girls, they unrolled their sleeping bags, CASB, and claimed their spots! Sophia grabbed her lounge chair JL-LC, perfect for reading and just relaxing.  Catherine and Julia unloaded the Coleman®18″ doll cooler  JL-CCL-BL which was full with food and lemonade. Next came the camp stove for 18 inch dolls, JL-CSF-GR.  They are excited to cookout and even though the campsite had a fire pit, having the Coleman camp stove is so much easier for Continue Reading →

Posted on by Tori Hall

Field Day is one of the  most fun school days by far so  Beth’s Best is shouting Hooray for Field Day! The girls are very excited to be participating in Field Day, because their grade finally gets to play with Eartha…the extremely large, blow up medicine ball  that resembles a globe.  It is way too big for the little kids and has become something that all of the kids look forward to starting from kindergarten!  The other events are just as much fun, like “water in the spoon”, kicking a soccer ball around cones, tug-of war  and a bean bag toss…even if we are  on different teams.  The weather was “iffy” but we all wanted to wear shorts in case it was hot or we got wet during one of the events.  Sophia can’t be missed in her neon workout set for 18 inch dolls  DRSBT-GT  with matching sneakers hot pink and green mesh doll sneakers SRMS-PG.  Lucky for Julia, she was assigned to be on Sophia’s team.  Her interlock 18″ doll shorts and sweatshirt set DRBSS-HP is so comfy and she can wear it to basketball practice after school.
