My oldest daughter has always loved dolls. Barbies, Cabbage Patch, doll house characters and now the 18” realistic dolls. At eight, she is at the age where she truly loves imagining with them, taking care of them and genuinely cares for them. She has received a few really nice dolls as gifts and treasures each one. It seems to be most popular on choosing a doll that looks like your child. I was beyond thrilled to introduce my daughter to a new line of gorgeous dolls called Starpath Dolls!
Starpath Dolls are four unique 18” dolls: Morning Star, Shining Star, Wishing Star and Wandering Star. Each doll has a unique and relatable personality. They have huggable cloth bodies and soft, brushable hair. Better yet, Starpath offers a customizable one of a kind book where you and your child can fill out questions that are completely unique to each owner. The two current books offered are “A Fairy Tale Gone Wrong” and “Tiger Magic”.
When I told my daughter about the dolls, I explained there were four to choose from. She thought all were extremely pretty and decided to choose based on their characteristic descriptions. We chose Wandering Star: Curiosity always leads her on an exploration of new things to learn and exciting discoveries. Silly and mischievous she always finds hidden treasures and many amazing wonders.
Since receiving Wandering Star, she and my daughter have been inseparable. Since the body of the doll is soft, she has been a perfect reading partner, cuddle buddy and car companion. Recently my daughter has said she wants to try new things, so she can be like her doll. She’s already started shopping for extra outfits for her and has her eye on a plush buddy as well.
The Starpath doll line is fantastic. I love that the dolls and their owner/new friend can be immersed in their own personalized book. I appreciate the detail that has gone into not only the doll itself but her backstory and the accessories. And at a fraction of the cost of other 18” dolls, it’s hard to say no.
