The doll obsession has run deep in our house. My older daughter has been into dolls since she was around two, but I recently noticed a whole new wave of doll love since her sister was born 10 months ago. Now her dolls - named Tasha, Moula and Meeta - wear diapers, eat and even breastfeed just like her baby sister does. It is ridiculously sweet to see her as a "mom" herself and take on some responsibility as she cares for her own baby doll.
The latest baby to make it's way to our home is the new Little Mommy line, a fun collection of baby and toddler dolls that are outfitted in trendy accessories, tops and shirts as well as outfitted with matching bottles, headbands and more. To celebrate the launch of the Little Mommy doll Momtrends went to Dylan's Candy Bar to scope out the dolls and chat with the host Rosie Pope, star of the Bravo reality series, Pregnant in Heels, and creator of the renowned fashion line, RosiePope Maternity. At the launch, Rosie was outfitted in a black mini dress highlighting her baby bump.
The already deliciously sweet store was filled with sweet treats, breakfast items, stations to play with the dolls and even a floral bouquet station. In between photos, I spoke with Rosie about her upcoming third pregnancy and she expressed how excited she is."I can't wait to meet her. Everything is so exciting and quite a whirlwind!" We also asked her about the upcoming season of Pregnant in Heels and she told us that this season will cover so "many different pregnancy dilemmas - like a home birth to helping a single mom-to-be date during her eighth month of pregnancy, and from throwing a babymoon in the Dominican Republic to rigging a paranoid client's house with video cameras to spy on her nanny." Other celebrity moms like Tiffani Thiessen and Kelly Rutherford were also in attendance as they played at the various "Little Mommy" stations were their daughters.
At the launch, I also checked out the collection of cute dolls. My daughter was in school and couldn't join me, but I knew she would love the soft bodied dolls and their super cute faces and clothing. Personally, I loved that the dolls represented various skin types (African American and Hispanic) and not just the typical Caucasian. Designed for girls as young as 18 months old, the Little Mommy dolls are a fun collection that brings nurturing to life as they emulate the role of a modern mom.
