We cleaned out storage and found a big box of my old baby dolls.
We also found a bag full of clothes my grandma made to fit these dolls. Little M has never really been into baby dolls. She’ll play with them, but she doesn’t really have a favorite. She doesn’t always have a doll in her hand or dream about cute little accessories. So when I dumped this box I knew I was in for a least one week of baby doll play… and I was excited!
First up? The babies needed a bath.
We filled a little pink bathtub (bought when I still thought we had a chance of being “baby lovers”) with dish soap, grabbed a few wash cloths and a small bowl of water. (Any plastic container would work great for this!)
Because most of the babies had soft bellies we didn’t want to submerge them. Just a quick wipe down, rinse and dry… and these baby dolls were ready to go.
This baby needed a little hair help. Little M spritzed her hair with a special little hair conditioner. (Thank you cookieandclaire for the great idea!)
After a little comb through we decided to add curlers. Corks worked perfect!
Little rubber bands worked well to hold the curl in place.
CUTE! Truth is I did the curlers. Little M had lost interest in babies… boy that was quick. I wanted to leave the curlers in for an hour or so but……
I took a phone call and Little M pulled them out before they were set. Oh well… some of the curls had already formed. I think I might play with curlers again… after Little M is in bed.
