The Melissa and Doug Wooden family is at this time popular. The clothes the dolls are wearing is of easy construction. The dolls themselves are expected to hold up for a long time. Locating various clothes to dress these dollys is challenging, but you can readily sew them yourself. To make clothing for dollys of any size, you must measure them. An illustration, in the Wooden family, the kids are shorter than the adults. By taking the measurements of each one, you can choose a pattern that will be close to the fit and then make a few small modifications to achieve the sizes you want. Another popular option, especially for really young girls is Lalaloopsy. Similar to many dolls, she comes fully clothed, but almost all girls will enjoy to change her clothes at times. She will need night wear and swimwear, along with a variety of articles. Lalaloopsy has a very large head. While most dolls' heads are out of proportion to their bodies, hers is even more so. When selecting or creating clothing for her, you'll want to choose patterns that child hands can work with and focus on characteristics like Velcro backs. You will have to make sure you can pull the clothing up over the dolly's body. Not a thing that fits her little torso will fit her head through.
