How could I resist making this adorable set for my adorable 2yo? So far, she loves the dolly more than the mattresses, but her brother is having fun stacking them up and knocking them over. We gave Amelia a sweet copy of the story, The Princess and The Pea, for her birthday too and she loved that. Success!

Absolutely adorable!!!! The doll is perfect! What an heirloom, too. Perhaps your bitty girl will have a bitty girl of her own and can pass this treasure on to her. Just charming!!

I love this!! What a fun and lovely gift for little Amelia! I have this book as well (one of my favorites) and I have often thought about making this little set for my daycare. You did a great job!!
