North American Bear Co. Review & Giveaway: Holiday Gift



I loved playing with dolls growing up and Avery does as well. The only toys I ever played with were dolls and barbies and mommy type items. Avery is getting into that too. She plays with dolls and animals. I had one doll from North American Bear CO growing up. She was one of my favorites. I got her when I was 7 and still had her when I left my mother's house at 16. She's buried in my mother's house now and I regret not taking her with me.

Avery got some LOVELY items for review from them. She received the Little Princess 16" Blonde as well as both Blonde Fancy Prancy Dancers  which are in Pink and Purple dresses.



 She has satin on her belly under her dress.
Avery is getting these dollies for Christmas so she hasn't even seen them yet, but I know she'll love them. Those little Fancy Prancy Dancers will be in her hands at ALL times. She will carry them around everywhere. 

I love the Large Blonde Doll. She is so soft, Her body, hair and dress are all the same very soft material. I wanted to cuddle with her. I love her crown. It makes her that much more of a princess. 

The little ones are small at only 8" or so, but they are perfect for a toddler to carry around. They have yarn hair and I love the detail in such a small doll. 

I also love the Sugar Plum Fairy Dancer JUMBO which stands at 36" tall. She was also on my list, but they decided to send me the others instead.
Isn't she gorgeous
36" tall, yes that means she's the size of your 3 yr old or so. Avery is 37" tall, I know she would've loved this big baby!!

They have so many other things and they even have some things for infant boys like the Sleepyhead Bunny
Not all for girls!

They are located right in Chicago, IL too!!

Price: The Princess 16" Blonde I received is $25. The Fancy Prancy Dancers are $12 each and that BIG Jumbo Doll up there is $100. But again she's 36" tall. Will provide a LOT of fun and entertainment with your daughter.

Overall: ***** Seem to be very well made and I'm sure they'll last years.


 *Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products!*
