DD1 has put one of these of her christmas list. Has anyone got them and could tell me if they stand up on their own? If no is there a similar doll that does?

No they dont stand up on their own. My dd (8) loves her 2 and wants another for christmas.

They don't stand on their own but they are fab! The little accessories and clothes come individually wrapped in boxes with tissue paper- so cute! My dds aged 5 and 7 are obsessed with them having got them recently. The doll comes with a charm bracelet to fit your child and then each outfit comes with a charm to add to it.

On eBay you can order school uniform outfits for the dolls in yours child's school colours! Inc book bag! I just know my dds a going to be over the moon with those on Xmas day!

They don't, but they are really lovely.

No I don't think they stand on their own. They are lovely for the price though.

I think dolls of this size that stand on their own tend to be much more expensive like american girl dolls.

It's a moments like this I wish I had a girl!

And before I get flamed- my boys hate dolls!

ZeldaUpNorth Sun 21-Oct-12 11:38:48

Oh that school uniform is cool! Shame its a bit out of my price range sad

& look they do a coffin wink

ZeldaUpNorth Sun 21-Oct-12 16:44:00

Haha dd's just showed me that in the argos gift book and i said it looks like a coffin and she said, thats what i thought. (shes 8)

Thanks - think I might go for it anyway. I guess I was thinking something similar to the american girl dolls but I think this is probably what she wants. Its the whole 'me buying traditional wooden toys for a toddler when all they want is plastic tat' again but this time with dolls
LOL at the 'coffin' that's just weird.

Thank you for the uniform sets!! DD will love that!

Oooh...wonder if Dd (aged 5) would like one of these...Think she might. Thanks for educating me MN!
