When I visited the Sophia’s Heritage booth at ToyFair this year I was completely overwhelmed by the variety of clothes, furniture pieces and accessories they have for 18″ dolls. One of the pieces that caught my eye was this adorable white bunk bed with bright colored flowers. Recently Sophia’s sent me that bunk bed to review – the bunk is $65 and can be purchased at My Doll’s Life and other retailers who carry the Sophia’s Heritage collection.
First, let me introduce our models – we have American Girl Sonali in the Coconut PJs, McKayla a Favorite Friends doll from Madame Alexander wearing the strawberry pjs and Carly, an 18″ soft body doll by Sophia’s ($68) wearing the cloud pjs. McKayla and Carly’s pajamas are from Carpatina.
The Sophia’s white bunk bed ships flat and requires assembly. You just need a Phillips head screwdriver to put the whole thing together – all necessary hardware is included. The instructions were very clear and it took me about 10 minutes to put the bunk bed together on my own. Once assembled, the bunk bed is nice and sturdy by doll bed standards.
In addition to the bed, the set includes the ladder and comes with light pink bedding. You can buy additional bedding in a variety of coordinating styles from My Dolls Life to give the set a different look.
Sonali says “Goodnight” to her friends Carly and McKayla get ready to go to sleep. The bunk bed sleeps two dolls very comfortably and would work for 15″ baby dolls as well as 18″ dolls.
Where to buy: My Doll’s Life and other Sophia’s Heritage retailers
Final thoughts: Overall, this bunk bed set is reasonably priced, easy to assemble, sturdy and stylish!
