18″ Doll Shorts and Tank Top All In One Jumpsuit

Being out and about in the summer heat requires an 18″ doll outfit that will keep your doll cool! Imagine a favorite pair of  18in doll shorts paired with a favorite tank top for 18″dolls all in one…and you have this week’s Outfit of the Week.  DRFJ is an 18 inch doll jumpsuit that has the look of shorts and a tank top combined. Carnation pink cotton fabric is covered with pink and beige flowers that have  a variety of green stems and leaves.  An elastic waistband provides a fitted profile and the self-tie bow detail gives the illusion of a 2 piece shorts set. Spaghetti straps and an elastic neckline add gentle pleating on top.  A hook and loop closure in the back makes this easy to dress your American Girl doll. Included with this casual summer 18″doll outfit is a pair of adorable sandals. STTFF are 18″ doll sandals with some great details for American Girl doll sized shoes.

Memories That Make You Smile!

Posted on by Tori Hall

Do warmer summer temperatures conjure up memories of making a lemonade stand when you were a kid? It sure does for me.  I can remember setting up lemonade stands with my brothers…making our pitcher of lemonade (and making a  mess in the kitchen no doubt) dragging our table down to the curb, coloring signs and posters to announce our stand, waving at passers by and asking them to stop… and how excited we were when someone stopped to buy a cup from us. We were thrilled when the coins dropped into our coffee can collection box. Sometimes, we used a shoe box, covered with construction paper and a slot cut into the top. The coffee can made a better noise!  Lemonade stands may be popping up in your communities now that the weather is warmer. Not much has changed. Maybe signs are made on the computer instead of crayons, construction paper and a great imagination. The lemonade is made from a powder mix not fresh lemons and sugar. However, the joy and excited expressions on kids’ faces as they wave and  encourage “customers” stop to purchase a cup of lemonade are  pretty much just as they were when I was a kid.  Thinking about Continue Reading →

Surf’s Up Beach Party with 18″ Dolls

Posted on by Tori Hall

Beach party 2016 and these girls are ready! Colorful 18in doll bathing suits and accessories make this group easy to spot on the beach. School is almost out and we just can’t wait for summer. We have our beach scene all set up and can only imagine really going to the shore and squiggling our toes in the sand. Julia is going to try her hand at surfing.  She has never done it before, but her older brother has given her a lesson and she wants to learn. DRWS, an 18″ doll wetsuit is going to keep Julia warm and protect her from rough sand if she takes a spill.  She’s got her new boogie board for 18in dolls ABB, which has a huge flower design…easy to spot if her ankle strap comes off and the board gets loose.  Catherine will be bobbing in the water on her inner tube trying to keep as much sand off of her as possible. Yuk…she just hates the sand and doesn’t like touching the bottom of the ocean either.   Sophia and Carly adore being covered in sand and will probably bury themselves just for fun!

Sophia’s® Safety Standards Take Center Stage

Posted on by Tori Hall

As parents, our primary concern for our children is to keep them safe.  As they grow and begin to play with toys…including pots, pans and plastic food storage containers…the need to be ever watchful increases.  How do you know if a child’s toy is “safe”?  Who develops the criteria making toys safe? ASTM International creates standards  for which all toys sold in the U.S. must comply.  These standards, along with regulations from the CPSA (Consumer Product Safety Commission) are all created to keep children’s toys safe. The safety of  Sophia’s®  18″ doll products is also our primary concern. When you purchase Sophia’s® brand doll merchandise, you know that each product has been manufactured with components that have been certified and safety tested to meet the safety requirements for children’s toys. The fabrics used in our collection of 18in and 15″ doll clothing have all been tested, as have our doll accessories and furniture.  Sophia’s® takes this safety concern just a bit further. We design many of our doll clothes with hook and loop closures with faux button details. This enables your child to dress and undress their dolls without actually having to button and unbutton, reducing the potential for buttons Continue Reading →
