I figured since we started the week with our first American Girl doll, I would end the week with our first Bitty Baby. Both dolls joined the family the same Christmas. Nicole was Megan’s gift and Penelope was Natalie’s – I think she was 3. Penelope is the blonde “haired” Bitty with light skin and blue eyes. Penelope has been on more adventures that any doll we have ever owned and she spends most of her time watching over the stuffed animal kingdom that has taken over Natalie’s bed. I’m sure you can relate 😉
THE BASICS ON PENELOPE:

|Where to buy||American Girl|
|Recommended for ages||Any age|
Penelope is wearing the Flower Fairy dress – the set also has fairy wings, a headband and light green ballet flats – but she didn’t want to wear shoes today!
The 2005 Princess set is still one of my favorite Bitty outfits. I bought the girl sized dress for Natalie, too. When she was little she and Bitty would dress up and play princess for HOURS. I still have the dress and will save it for my Grandchildren … one day. Doesn’t Bitty Bear look so proper in his cape that has a crown built in?
Bitty says “enough of the fashion show! I just want my jammies!” These are the Pink Paisley PJs that Bitty Babies come wearing now. I just love this print!
You can see that Penelope is very well loved by the shine on her skin. She probably needs a little TLC this weekend – a little baking soda and water wipe off – and a big hug!
Do you have any 15″ baby dolls – Bitty Baby – or other – in your collection?
