Dolls for Boys in Honor of Celebrate the Boy!

I’m really excited to share some big news with you today.  I’ve been selected to contribute to Celebrate the Boy over at MADE.  If you haven’t stopped by MADE you gotta check it out, it’s chock-full of inspiring projects and gorgeous photography… seriously, go now – I’ll wait.

Ok, now that you’re back you know that they’re once again doing a whole month of projects dedicated to boys. The fun starts today and lasts until March 15th – isn’t that a great idea?

Blabla Doll Otto the Rocker

I’ll have lots more on my role in the celebration coming up.  For now, I thought I’d help kick things off with a collection of dolls suitable for the little guy in your life.  After S was born I saw how much C liked the baby dolls everyone got her and realized he needed a doll or two of his own.  I went on a hunt and found a surprising number of options (all of which I’m sure little girls would also enjoy).
