So loved, and durable too... going on 3 years!
on September 22, 2008
"Rosey" has been part of our lives for almost 3 years now. I gave this baby doll to my granddaughter for her 1st birthday in December 2005, and immediately became 'the' toy. Rosey travels everywhere with her, is her sleep companion and companion in all play. She washes up beautifully- right in the washer (we have a front load, so no agitator - I would put her in a bag if there is an agitator on your machine, but I still think she would fare well - I believe the other household she spends 50% of her time in has an agitator type machine) - and goes in the dryer as well. We got rid of the bracelet early on... the baby wasn't crazy about it... it was 'scratchy', on an otherwise terrifically cuddly doll (an older child may like it, it is a cute accessory - but we haven't missed it any). The stitched details are wonderful, defining fingers, toes, belly button and tush - very cute. The hair ribbon was lost almost immediately, but not missed at all. The hat is attached, and still upon her head, complete with ribbon, which hasn't even frayed a bit in the MANY washings over the years! I have been extremely pleased with the durability of this little doll with all the loving (and occasionally not so loving) constant attention she receives. I would recommend this doll to all Grandma's out there looking for a "snuggly" she hopes will become her granddaughter's favorite! I had found our Rosie in a specialty boutique, and now that I have found her online, I may just have to buy a few to have on hand in my 'gift box' for new babies, special people birthdays etc - she is well worth the price! UPDATE: 1/4/2011 - This doll is STILL a favorite and STILL holding up beautifully!
