Preemie Jammies - Perfect for 18in dolls!

Just a quick little post that my daughters wanted to share with all the other girls out there.  We were given, by a family friend a few years back, the Avon version of American Girl dolls.  My girls love their dolls and this year the eldest wanted an official American Girl doll.  Since they are still a bit too pricey, I did a little research and found that the Toys r us version of the 18 inch doll (called a Journey Girl) had the softest hair and the best reviews (and for 1/3 of the price too - she's the blonde doll on the left).  Besides 18 inch dolls being pricey, their clothes and accessories can get pretty expensive too.  One day I was shopping in the kid's section and came across some preemie jammies.  They were so sweet and little.  I thought, wait a second, I wonder if these would fit their dollies?!  I bought a pair, brought it home, and that's when I discovered that preemie baby pajamas are an absolute perfect fit for 18-inch dolls!

How adorable are these jammies?

Look, one of them even has little zebra faces on the feet:

Not to mention, my girls absolutely LOVE to wear footie jammies themselves in real life!

First of all, regular doll clothes can run about $10 bucks each.  Not to mention they are usually not that well made, and a tad scratchy.  These REAL preemie baby jammies are sometimes under $8 and are the cutest, softest jammies in the known universe.  My girls love snuggling with their dolls now and having pretend slumber parties.  Matter of fact, when we had a few birthday parties to go to these last few weekends, I found out their friends had received 18 inch dolls for Christmas, so we went out and got them all comfy jammies as one of our presents.

So if you have a daughter, granddaughter, or niece out there under 13 or so, check and see if they have an 18 inch doll they love and surprise them with this special little gift.  I also love to shop the clearance section after a holiday and you can pick up some very cute themed jammies for your dolls this way as well.  Enjoy, and happy snuggling.
