Surely I’m not the only mom out there who tries to hide the name brand 18 inch doll catalog when it arrives in the mail. I didn’t catch the latest one before my 5-year-old found it. It was rather adorable to watch her go through it and circle items she wanted, until I started looking at the price points (A bed for a doll that cost the same amount as her own bed?! Yikes!).
So when I heard about Starpath Dolls and the mompreneur behind the brand, I was very curious and agreed to check out the products. We were sent the doll Shining Star and it was love at first sight for my 5-year-old, Layah.
When we took the doll out I was immediately checking for whether or not the doll looked sturdy, meaning whether or not it could endure lots and lots and LOTS of play. I quickly noticed the arms and legs that are easy to move, and the soft (yet not squishy) body core. It all looked good to me! Layah immediately noticed just how lovely the doll was, saying, “She’s precious, mommy! Can I name her Precious?”
Precious, it is! This doll has been put in baby carriers and strollers, has slept in Layah’s bed, has traveled rather extensively with us over the past month, and has been changed into countless different outfits (that we have acquired now that we have a doll this size). Her hair is extremely soft and easy to brush (yet it isn’t falling out, which is something else I’ve been watching for), and she’s just all around adorable and high quality! Her price point ($79) reflects her quality without reflecting a name brand premium price.
What Sets Starpath Dolls Apart
There is something very special that is included with Starpath Dolls and that I think really sets it apart from the competition. When you purchase a Starpath Doll you will receive a code at the time of purchase that will allow you to order a personalized story book for your child in an eBook format your child can read on a device like an iPad or Kindle. This book is included with the price of the doll and you receive it immediately after you customize your online book. Or, your child prefers a paperback book you can pay $20 to get your book printed and it will arrive at your doorstep within 2 weeks of placing your order.
We are extremely impressed with the quality of our Starpath Doll, and we love our personalized book, as well.
