Graduation Cap and Gown for Dolls Giveaway

UPDATED! Congratulations to our winner – Heather!

The end of the school year is right around the corner and whether you (or someone you know) is graduating from Kindergarten, Elementary School, Middle School, High School or College, it is a big deal! Those are serious milestones! Your doll can help you commemorate the experience or imagine your dreams in a Graduation Cap and Gown for 18″ dolls from My Doll’s Life. And keep reading because we are giving away the Graduation Cap and Gown to one lucky reader, too.

American Girl Graduation Cap and Gown

The white Graduation Gown comes down below the knee and has neatly done zipper closure in the front just like the real things! The mortar board cap is fitted and has a tassel your doll can move from one side to the other and then toss it into the air when her graduation ceremony is done! It doesn’t come with the shoes – Calista is wearing the white dress sandals that came with a new friend – more on her later – and I made her diploma scroll by rolling a piece of paper and tying it with ribbon.

Doll Graduation Cap and Gown

So, Calista wants you to enter to win one for your doll!!
