The girls have been into playing together and pretend play lately. Thank goodness. And doing it fairly well (yes, we still have sharing issues…it’s a work in progress). Recently we were sent an Our Generation doll and RV Seeing You Camper for the girls. When they opened the box and saw what was inside, they went nuts. I didn’t even know they had that much excitement in them! There was a lot of box tearing, plastic attachy-things-removing and tape unsticking, but when they finally got it all out, they couldn’t stop playing with her.
Holly joined us for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as car trips and family outings. It was like we had another kid with us. The girls thoroughly enjoyed her company!
About Our Generation Dolls
The pictures don’t do this doll justice. Holly is a whopping 18” tall girl Our Generation doll. That’s like almost the size of my children when they were born. She comes with two outfits, a school-girl outfit and a sports outfit. They both enjoyed changing her outfit, but they did get frustrated with the skirt and stopped using it. It is only perfectly sized for her, and the velcro isn’t very sticky, so the skirt wouldn’t stay on her. Maybe adding elastic would help?
These Our Generation girls come with their own story unique to each doll. The books talk all about their history and help teach lessons to our children and are models for the behaviors and qualities we would like to see in them. Our Generation dolls also have hobbies that can mirror hobbies of our children, or hobbies that our children might want to learn more about.
Our Generation dolls are soft and have removable fabric clothing. They have life-like hair that can be brushed or styled (and detangled and restyled if needed). Some of the Our Generation dolls come with hair extensions, comb and clips or other accessories that go with their story.
So many of the dolls have different looks and back stories also. It’s not hard to find a doll that looks just like your child or a selected gift recipient. Our girls get a kick out of their dolls looking like them, as well as their dolls looking like their friends.
Our Generation Dolls Pricing
Many of the dolls are reasonably priced at $24.99 and some a little higher because of different accessories or outfits. Our Generation dolls make very affordable gifts and accessories you can order online or pick up in Target stores.
Our Generation accessories, clothes, vehicles books and more have varying prices, but start at very low, around $10 and go up from there.
Compared to some other similar dolls that are over $100, this is a great deal.
American Girl and Our Generation Dolls Can Share
Do you or your kids have American Girl Dolls? What’s really cool is American Girl (like our American Girl Gabby) and Our Generation Dolls and accessories are totally interchangeable. Since the dolls are all the same height (18 inches), and pretty much the same size, their clothes and shoes fit all of the dolls. This makes dressing them and changing their clothes even more fun. Our girls enjoy making their dolls had different outfits and looks an interchanging the clothes an accessories. When they are all bunched together, I don’t think you can even tell who is “supposed” to be wearing what!
What works with one will work with the other and vise versa. So, they all fit in the RV that was made for Our Generation Dolls. And Holly’s backpack works great on their American Girl, Nanea, too. American Girl and Our Generation Dolls really are interchangeable!
Our Generation dolls make great dolls to see how your child will treat their doll and take care of it. I have many friends that intend use Our Generation Dolls as a “test run” for more expensive dolls and then when or if they do go the more expensive route, they find that their children play with them all equally and they swap clothes and play together very easily.
Homes, RVs, Tents and More
The RV has pretty much been everywhere in our house. All of the dolls that we own have slept in it, too (they were beyond thrilled to discover the couch folds out to a bed). There’ve been quite a few sleepovers.
The R.V. Seeing You Camper is a luxury camper includes everything a doll needs for life on the road, including a mini kitchen, dishes, two stools, a bed and bedding. Our middle daughter thinks that it has to be set up, just so. In fact, she will constantly play with it, and then set it up so that it matches the book and picture that came with it.
Apparently, when a toy comes with pictures, that is exactly how it should be set up! She was super impressed with herself.
There are also school houses, horse barns, tents, high chairs, kitchens, canopy beds and more. Plus, there are also child sized outfits so your child can match her Our Generation Doll.
