My child is a lover of make-believe. From trying to hitch a ride to Purple Planet to being a legit princess on the regular, her imagination is always on point. Most of the time I'm envious that my mind doesn't work like hers anymore. I'm constantly lacking in the play department. I'm running low on my question asking. And I'm ever so slowly losing my ability to make-believe. It's like the Polar Express, where the grownups can't hear the bell.
I can't hear the bell.
So, when Manu Atelier sent Adrienne the most perfect, hand-made rag doll ever, I got all reminiscent of my childhood. My grandmother had made me a doll similar to the Manu's ones when I was Adrienne's age.
Gosh, I carried my doll with me on so many adventures. I had all the make-believe power in the world.
I held the heavy Manu doll in my hands, thinking how much creativity I was missing. So, I grabbed Adrienne and we went into her bedroom and played dolls for a good hour. Much longer than we have ever played one thing consistently. I think it had to do with the simplicity of this rag doll. There were no buttons to push to make her talk, no eyes that opened and closed, no hair to brush.
But this rag doll had so much more.
Adrienne and "Anne-weesa" will have many adventures together. Make-believe and all.
Now it's your turn to win a Manu Atelier doll! Each doll is handmade, making no two alike. They are stuffed with a wool and cotton mix, making them pretty solid. Each comes dressed in outfits made from vintage fabric.
