Slumber Party Yarn Hair Doll From Oriental Trading Review and Giveaway

I really wanted to find a doll that would be age appropriate for my little one. I researched online and found several options.I stuck to searching for dolls with safe hair for her to run her fingers through and play with.

Some of my observations/thoughts from my research:

Cabbage Patch Babies Doll - (Avg cost $25) 
  • Recommended for ages 3-5 years old
  • I was concerned size and weight might make it hard for my daughter to play/carry the doll
  • Dolls do not seem to have enough hair for her to play with
My First Doll by Carter's - (Avg cost $12)
  •  No age recommendation
  • My daughter had one of these from birth and she has lost interest in it (she loved it from 0-6 months old)
  •  Dolls hair is part of the fabric
Haba Doll - (Avg cost $35.99)
  • Recommended for ages 18m+ 
  • Doll is cute but cost more than I was hoping to spend
  • Lots of hair to play with
I finally found the Slumber Party Yarn Hair Dolls from Oriental trading. The dolls have a nylon stuffed body, which I love because I don't have to worry about my daughter hurting herself while playing with it. The dolls have sturdy yarn hair for my daughter to play with and are very reasonably prices at $15 for a set of 4. The dolls are recommended for ages 3 and up. Since my daughter is under 1 years old I just make sure to watch her when she plays with the doll and she has had no issues so far. I also see no potential choking hazards.

Do you think your little one would like one of these dolls? Here is your chance to win one: Giveaway ends 9/15/12 open to US residents only.
