Mini Me

I was browsing the internets a while ago, and came across a clothing company called Dollie & Me.  They make matching outfits for a girl and her doll.

When I was a young tot, I do not remember even remotely wanting my doll to look like me.  My doll was my doll, something to prop up on a chair, pour pretend tea with, and then possibly throw around on the lawn and drag around in a wagon.  I guess you could say it took a while for my maternal instincts to kick in.

I don’t know what it is about buying dolls so that they look just like their owners.  I think that it is totally appropriate to make dolls that reflect all races, but since when do eyes and hair color and outfit have to match?  I happen to think it zaps the imagination right out of the whole “pretend” thing. 

Maybe I’m just easily annoyed lately, but you won’t find me purchasing any matching outfits for my daughter and her doll.  I refuse to ever buy matching outfits for her and myself, so why would I spend good money for her and her doll?

I did just fine appropriating things I found around the house into my doll’s wardrobe, and my daughter will have to do the same.  In a pinch, you’d be amazed at what you can do with a doily.
