But no, she wants an American doll! What is a mom to do?
So today, I thought it would be nice to share with you a family owned buisness- where mother and daughters work together in perfect harmony to bring us and our kids the cutest, coolest Robots ever: EBK Robots.
Oh! and even the husbands and kids are involved- here is how they describe themselves:
Jen: Robot whisperer and lover of rainbows.
Becky: Robot maker, boogie shaker and kickin' grandma—don't mess with her!
Sara: head Robot guru and design ninja master.
Dave: Robot beauty maker.
Ellie, Jonah, Nathan, Evan: Robot Testers + Grilled Cheese eating machines.
All the products, robot pluhes and bags are handmade in the US with lots of care and love.
Mister M is the proud owner of the blue Robot bag you see above and carries it everywhere. I can't believe we've had it for almost 2 years and it looks as good as new.
What's great about the EBK robots, is that they are suitable not only for the boys but for the girls too- they come in all the colors of the rainbow and they make formreally great gifts too, for any age really.
I'd love to adopt a family of little robots, wouldn't you?

Every year for Christmas I make some handmade gifts, usually I end up trying a craft new to me and scramble to make it the night before. This year was no exption, 2 days before the 24th, I decided I would finally sew up the waldorf
I had purchased for Miss E almost 2 years ago. I have been so nervous sewing up this doll, that it has taken me 2 years to build up the courage to go at it. Of course, this was intended to be a surprise and so I sewed two night in a row while the kids were sleeping and 10 hours later came up with this little- not so little doll.
I only wish my embroidery skills were a little better, I think her eyes could be bigger and a little closer to her nose. I might try and re-do them, but I'm afarid of ruining the whole thing. Or maybe I could just make another or two or three! Yup, I'm totally hooked.
Miss E LOVED her so much, the reaction she had when she opened her gift was priceless and well worth the sleepless nights- I couldn't help but cry.
I wasn't going to post anything today, honestly since the shooting on Friday my heart and mind have been elsewhere.... but I just had to share these lovely handmade dolls as they made me smile today. I thought we could all use a little cheering up!
These lovely handmade dolls are created by Huey Ling, all the way from China and you can see her creative journey and collection on her lovely blog: POCOLEIZI.
Thank you Malu for sharing.
I can't believe we are almost in the month of December and I hardly talked about all the amazing things I saw at the gift show back in august! Get ready for lot's of great gift ideas and finds in the next couple of weeks.
I've talked about Jess Brown before, but I just had to let you know that they are a lot more beautiful in person. Can you believe it! The details that go into making these one of kind dolls is remarkable. The quality of the materials, the stiching, the dying, the hand embroidered face, all sublime. I was a fan before and now that I've held one in my hands, I'm obessed!
If the Jess Brown dolls are new to you, I thought you might want to know a few things that make these dolls truly unique. Everydoll is handmade in California by Jess Brown and some local artisan, each one is made from muslin which is hand dyed in persian black tea which gives every doll a unique skin tone. All the clothing is handmade from recycled and antique fabrics. They are stuffed with sustainable corn filling. They stand 22 inches tall, which I surprised to see and quite tall. You can buy the dolls on the webshop and you can even get one custom made.
If you can't afford a doll, you can always get the book "Kiki & Coco" in paris, one of my kids favorites... you can read all about it here!
I have to say it was nice meeting you, a highlight for me at The NYC gift show!!! And I'm sure this won't be the last time I showcase some Jess Brown dolls, hopefully one of my own next time!
I would love to introducoutou to the Pinselblues dolls. I discovered Marinas creations a couple months ago through flikr and I was really excited to have them featured as part of my Lovely Finds for La Petite Magazine, but somehow got lost on their way...
I just love these one of kind dolls, the embroidered details are precious, the faces are sweet...
I love the colors... The hair... The freckles... So sweet, just perfect!
Now I know Miss E's birthday isn't until August, but one of these dolls are first on my list...
