Some of my fondest memories as a child were when my mom would read to us from the Little House on the Prairie book series. I loved curling up at my mom’s feet with my sisters as her words transported us back to a simpler time. She used these stories to teach us to appreciate all that we had! We giggled that Laura had a corncob doll and cheered when she received her first real doll for Christmas. I would imagine how difficult it must have been for Pa to build a log house for his family, and marvel at Ma’s meticulous weekly household chores. My mom made sure we understood how even Carrie, the youngest Ingalls girl, had chores to do and everyone in the family worked together.About a year ago, I carried on the tradition with my daughter and read The Little House in the Big Woods over the course of several bed story times. I smiled when she herself giggled about Laura’s corncob doll and the memories of that special time with my own mom and sisters came flooding back to me.
You can imagine how thrilled I was to find out that The Queen’s Treasures created an officially licensed Little House on the Prairie Laura Ingalls 18″ Doll! The Queen’s Treasures sent me a doll to review, and when I surprised my daughter with her she was in awe! The Laura Doll comes dressed in her nightgown and cap in a log house style box with a tiny pillow and a quilt. It’s beautifully handcrafted! My daughter’s favorite accessory is the small rag doll with yarn hair, and she shouted “It’s Laura’s Doll that she got for Christmas in the Big Woods!”
The Laura Ingalls 18” Doll is available online at TheQueensTreasures.com and Target.com for $99.99. A full-line of accessories is available at http://www.thequeenstreasures.
