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. Their 18″ doll graduation set is a traditionally styled, zipper front gown with a matching white mortar board hat. Sophia chose DRPHD, a plaid halter style 18in doll dress. The full skirt and halter neckline will keep her cool during the ceremony and the colorful plaid will look super in photo ops! Ballerina flats for 18 inch dolls in bright pink patent leather SUB-HP match her dress perfectly and walking across the bumpy football field for her diploma will be a breeze! Julia’s 18 inch doll dress DRPFD is so springy with the pink and white floral pattern, gently scooped neckline and capped sleeves. A large hot pink flower embellishment at the waistline and cinched trim detail at the hem look beautiful against Continue Reading →

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.

This week, Beth’s Best is taking the 18″ dolls on their much deserved field trip. Since the weather on the east coast has finally warmed up, the girls are headed to the beach. Wind in their hair, sand in their toes and a boardwalk full of fun foods and souvenir stores, the day promises to provide them memories to last a lifetime. Since this is a school sponsored trip, there was a dress code where girls had to wear pants or shorts. That made picking outfits easy. Since it is still too chilly to be swimming, no swimwear necessary! Sophia is always cold, so her capri pants outfit SH-WT-HC is perfect. She grabbed a hoodie for 18in dolls, SPHD in keep in her backpack MABP-HP along with her phone and sunscreen.

To kick off my first post, I wanted to send our Catherine doll off to school, (which is so much easier than sending my daughter off to school on some mornings!) where she is teaching a geography lesson. Geography is not her favorite and she’s practicing her lesson at home to be sure she gets her facts correct! Since the weather here in the mid-Atlantic region is rainy, cold and overcast, Catherine still needs some layers to keep her warm. What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods? Since it is April after all, I chose a peasant top, SPWB-PT, which provides a bit of spring layering with the gauzy, pleated fabric and bell sleeves. Continue Reading →

April 10th celebrates the founding of the ASPCA® by philanthropist and diplomat, Henry Bergh. Using the model of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals which he observed during a diplomatic trip to England, he incorporated the American Society for The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or ASPCA by a special act of the New York State legislature in 1866. The mission of the ASPCA, as stated by Henry Bergh, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” Not only was the ASPCA the first humane society formed in North America, today, but today, it is one of the largest humane societies in the world. For more information about the ASPCA, visit their website .
Sophia’s® is a proud supporter of the ASPCA’s mission having designed several 18″ doll outfits and 18 inch doll accessories bearing their logo. DRAPS-PS and DRAAS-DS are two 18″ doll outfits in our current ASPCA collection that fit American Girl dolls.
