By far the most loved doll in this house is Bitty Baby! She was Natalie’s first doll and has traveled the world with her. For today’s Throwback Thursday, our readers have sent in some of their Bitty Baby and Twins photos for us to enjoy, but first, a few of my favorite Bitty photos from the Doll Diaries vault.
This is a very special Bitty Baby we bought at a Doll Show. She is one of the original Bitty Baby dolls and is wearing the Gardening Outfit from 1996.

From Linda – Caroline is reading to her little niece, a Madame Alexander doll. I bought this Bitty Baby crib at a garage sale years ago for $3.00. At that time, I didn’t know anything about Bitty Babies. It came with a white pillow, mattress and white with pink bows comforter, which I still have but have misplaced at the moment. I believe they are Samantha’s. Caroline is wearing pajamas that I made. I also made these little pillows that go with comforters that I made for a bunk bed set that we made.
From Vivian – This is my Bitty Baby Emily Elizabeth, she’s from 2010 or 2011 I’m not 100% sure when I got her. Unlike most girls I got my bitty baby when I was 9 or 10. I wasn’t so much into the 18 inch dolls yet (though I had two) and I had fallen in love with the Bitty Babys! I’ve had several great years of adventures with her though, I no longer use Emily Elizabeth. I am saving her to give to my future children someday. I had a lot of fun taking her out to take pictures, so enjoy!
The next set of photos are from Heather – This is Bitty Baby in her first original sleeper, I’m not sure if the basket is authentic Bitty though.

Bitty’s toggle coat (2003) goes really well with the harvest plaid pants.

For next week’s Throwback Thursday we are going to mix it up quite a bit!! Let’s see all those VINTAGE dolls. I know our readers are of all ages and some of you have some very old dolls. VINTAGE dolls will be classified as dolls from before 1980!! This is going to be a challenge, but I think there are some real gems out there. Be sure to share as much information about the doll as you can. Please send your photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put THROWBACK VINTAGE in the subject line.
