Welcome back to another Mums on Mondays- this week featuring “The Dolly’s Bedroom”, a great new business at Highfields (on the Village Green at the Chocolate Cottage centre). Kim begin research for her business over two years ago, when she couldn’t find furniture and accessories for her daughter’s dolls . She has carefully sourced a wide variety of dolls, furniture, clothes and accessories to melt any little (or big!) girl’s heart- everything for dollies! All children who adopt a doll receive an adoption certificate in the mail. They have adopted out an amazing 170 dolls since they opened in December 2011.
The Berenguer line of dolls is a boutique range, of which they have the exclusive range in Toowoomba. They are very detailed and accurate, and have the most wonderfully-realistic expressions! They are very popular. The Dolly’s Bedroom only stocks four of each kind, and once they are sold, they’re gone!
Carpitina dolls are made in the USA and The Dolly’s Cupboard are the Australian Dealer. They have fully moveable parts, close their eyes, move their hands and are made of soft vinyl. There are a wide range of dresses and accessories made for them- from formal wear to playtime.
The Piccagenie Dolls are made locally, and no two are the same.
There is also an incredible range of dolls clothing, to suit all sizes of dolls. Little girls are encouraged to bring in their dolls, and try on the clothes using the change table. Over half the clothing range is handmade, and is a mixture of local and other designers. As well as shirts, pants, and dresses, there are also cloth nappies, bibs, and my personal favourite….the shoes (sooo cute!!)
They also have range of furniture and accessories for dolls, including prams, change tables, moses baskets and rockers. They are the dealer for the locally made Tymba Toyz, who manufacture their furniture using recycled timber.
The Dolly’s Bedroom stock the locally-made range of Hamish and Milly clothing- in matching dresses for your daughter and her favourite doll. No two dresses are the same!
The Dolly’s Bedroom makes shopping easy for you with gift certificates available, and an 8 week layby available. If you have your eye on something special for your little one for Christmas, let them know, and they will contact you on the 1st October to get your layby underway. Don’t forget to join their birthday club, where your little one will receive a birthday card and a $5 voucher in the mail on their birthday (kids just LOVE getting real mail!)
The Dolly’s Bedroom has generously offered a Doll’s Care Package to giveaway, including a dolls moses basket, blanket, bottle and cloth nappy. Just leave a comment below letting me know what you would be most interested in seeing at The Dolly’s Bedroom. The competition closes at 5pm Saturday 9th June, and will be announced in next week’s Mums on Mondays. Good luck!
