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 →

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.

Catherine, Julia and Sophia did some camping with the scout program but it has been awhile!

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 →

Beth’s Best 18″ Doll Field Trip

Posted on by Tori Hall

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.  New  18″  floral doll espadrilles STEF-HP are so comfy for walking and easy to slip off in case she can just run and dip her feet in the water!! Always a great accessory are some cool shades,  DNFSG-RD and Sophia just loves the red polka dot color.  Julia’s wearing a super 18 inch doll graphic tee and shorts set Continue Reading →

Posted on by Tori Hall

With the end of school on the horizon, Beth’s Best features the last slumber party before the end of school.  Sophia, Carly and Julia have gathered at Sophia’s house for the evening.  Naturally, after  pizza for dinner and a funny movie with popcorn, the gals have retired to Sophia’s bedroom for some girl time! Attempting some new “do’s” is always fun.  Good thing that there are so many styling tools and hair care items in JL-HSS, enough for all of them.  They are very excited about an upcoming field trip to the beach.  This is something special for their class and everyone is looking forward to it! Sophia loves her 18″ doll leopard pj’s DRPJ-LP and coordinating 18in doll leopard robe and slippers set DRNR-LP.  As you can tell, pink is her favorite color and the pink collar and cuffs in the robe and pink fur slippers, truly make her smile! She’s not sure what to try with her hair, so the headband will just have to work until something in her Teen Magazine catches her eye. Carly has volunteered to be the first to be styled.  As long as Julia keeps the Continue Reading →

Outfit of the Week Celebrates Memorial Day

Posted on by Tori Hall

This week’s Outfit of the Week will start to get everyone in the spirit of Memorial Day. Celebrated on the last Monday in May, Memorial Day honors those who gave their lives while serving in the military.  A red, white and blue 18″ cheerleader costume plus sneakers will be perfect for your 18″ doll and get her ready for a celebration.  A cheerleading squad will be featured in the local Memorial Day Parade this year. The girls are so excited and have been practicing day and night to be sure that their routine is perfect!    In addition, they all got new uniforms in red, white and blue for the event! DRCO-RN is a 2 piece cheerleading costume for 18″ dolls. Having a sleeveless top will be great if the weather is warm and the red chevron stripe detail against the blue fabric looks amazing.  A hook and loop closure in the back will make this a perfect fit for many 18 inch dolls.  We just love the 3 kick pleats in the front of the white skirt. It provides room for some of the fancy moves the girls have learned and exposes the red fabric inserts which give an explosion Continue Reading →
