Kidz n Cats Update

Posted on

With the problems last year in getting Kidz n Cats dolls, thanks to manufacturing and stocking issues, its good to hear they’re back on track. Over at Petalina there’s plenty of information and images of the new range of dolls due for 2014.

According to the post there:

There are 7 dolls carried over from previous collections with an additional 7 new dolls.

The carried over dolls are: Lena, Carlotta, Alister, Jakob, Grace, Sophie (now with blue eyes) and Laura

There are 7 new dolls, 5 of which will be available in March/April: Paulette, Princess in Pink, Julia, Teresa and Jolina

The remaining two dolls will be available in August/September: Miu and Jodie

Its good to know there will still be boy dolls in the range though I always hope there will be new ones, but still… Grace and Laura are two of my favourites, and I know they’ve been big sellers thus far. Looking at the images, Alister has the same outfit but possibly a different face mould? Its hard to tell. More info and images as they become available, in the meantime head over to Petalina to read the full post with images and further information, plus a heads-up on a new range of Kidz n Cats furniture due also.

Fab Furniture (Countdown to Christmas)

Another in my series of seasonal gift suggestion posts..

Ok, you have your dolls, and your outfits, but they need some things to make life more interesting, or at least just places to chill out. Luckily, there is doll-sized furniture available – this great shot from mydollboutique shows some of the options available, from beds and wardrobes to chairs and even a chest of drawers:

All these and several other items are to be found at the mydollboutique furniture page.

With several dolls, why not invest in bunk beds? I love these ones from My Doll Best Friend, made of hard wood with pink cotton bedding they’re ideal for a doll sleepover. Find them here. There are matching single beds in this design available also.

And why have one chair when you could have two and a matching table to boot? Again from My Doll Best Friend, this set is of solid wooden construction, though will need an adult to assemble. Click here

Here are some fancier chairs with table from mydollboutique, they’ve been on my wishlist for ages, I must admit – you’ll find them on this page.

Personally I’ve fallen in love with these pink metal frame beds that My Doll Best Friend is stocking along with her wooden beds. They come with bedding in pink heart, white heart, pink patchwork and the white patchwork design shown. Sadly, while the furniture above is ideal for 18″ dolls, these beds are a little smaller, so will give a good night’s sleep to Soy Tu, Schildkrot and other 45cm dolls only.. The bedding sets are availble to buy separately, which is handy. This bed and the others can be found via this link.

As a final shout out for doll bed design, here’s a clever one from Petalina. This beech wood bed comes with pink butterfly bedding as shown and is the perfect size for 18″ dolls such as Gotz. Petalina’s page can be seen here

So what’s the clever part? Well, you can buy extras for it – buy a second bed and a ladder and voila, bunk beds. Or stick with a single bed, add rockers and yet another style of sweet dreams for your beloved doll to drift away with.

Oh and finally, wardrobes! Along with the mydollboutique one shown in the top most image, you can find nifty wardobes like this plain white one by Kidkraft over at Petalina: here

And this fancier pink-curtained version is over at The Dolls House here.

Yep, going to some nicely furnished doll bedrooms in the offing with any of the items above, we’re all definitely spoilt for choice.
