In celebration of two really, really big announcements from our friends at British doll company A Girl for All Time, we are spotlighting the first doll in their series, Matilda, Your Tudor Girl. Matilda is a sweet and thoughtful girl who thinks her life in Tudor times, is well, boring. She feels that way until she is whisked off to to be a lady-in-waiting at King Henry VIII’s court. She is drawn in to the glamour of the court, but things are not always as glamorous as they appear.

Wait a moment, you say? What are those two BIG announcements from A Girl for All Time? Well, the first one is that they will now be stocked at the famous Harrod’s Toy Kingdom and they will be having a launch weekend celebration May 11 & 12. So, if you just happen to be “in the area” stop by and help them celebrate!
So exciting!! Well done to the whole A Girl for All Time team!
Matilda is looking mysterious in her gorgeous green ballgown. I am not sure what shade of green to call this but it is over the top gorgeous! The white satin insets, pearl beaded trim and the light purple velvet ribbon are just so rich feeling. And while many of you may think Matilda looks somber or sad, really she is just a serious girl who is always thinking and would happily be found under the pear tree writing in her journal.
Oh no, I forgot to tell you the rest of the good news for A Girl for All Time! If you happen to be in FAO Schwarz in New York City, look for Matilda, Amelia and the newest doll in the series, Clementine, who should be making her photo debut in the near future on Doll Diaries.
If you have an interest in English history and want to experience it through the eyes of a 12-13 year old girl of the time period, I highly recommend the A Girl for All Time books and dolls. The stories will leave you on the edge of your seat and you will feel transported back in time.
