Older kids love the clock/calendar, digital photo frame, music and video features.  The Photo Clock includes 11 built-in songs from children's artists including Milkshake, Lunch Money, King Pajama and more.

Now that Elizabeth and Sarah are getting older, it's so much fun to buy them dolls. When I was deciding, I was drawn to these Hearts4Heart Dolls. There are 8 girls to chose from each representing a region of the world in their own fashionable way. 
Each doll comes with an array of accessories to dress her in. The dolls are priced afford ably too starting at $24.99. With each doll purchased a contribution is made to World Vision to help girls in underprivileged countries.  


This is absolutely the most amazing doll I have ever seen! If you have a little girl, I promise she will be in love with her new baby. The Giggly Wiggly WaterBabies Doll giggles when you touch her tummy, and when you fill her body with warm water, she feels like a REAL baby! 
She comes dressed in a fanciful pink and white polka-dotted sunsuit with lace trim and matching headband with fabric flower.

Includes a baby bottle and a pacifier.

You can purchase your own WaterBabies doll at Target, Toys R' Us and other retailers.
