I guess this has been asked loads of times before but I can't find anything when I search <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br><br>
I want to make a doll each for my two littlies - my boys are nearly 18m and nearly 4yrs<br><br>
I was thinking of ordering from dancing rain dolls but can't decide which kit would be best<br><br>

Definately go with Dancing Rain. I love the 'my baby' that I just made for my 2 year old. And I just ordered the 14 inch Friendship doll to make for my 3 year old nephew. Or you could compromise and buy the 12 inch friendship doll kit and some extra material, batting and hair to make another. I think boys might get more use out of the friendship doll... plus they end up babying their 'friend' anyhow.

Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I decided to go with the 14" friendship doll for my 3yo - have ordered it now and fingers crossed it arrives in time for xmas - otherwise it will be for his birthday in March<br><br>
I gave in to my longstanding love of Joys heavy baby for my littlest. I don't know if its the best baby for an 18m old but <b>I</b> have wanted one for a long time LOL <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> but ohmygoodness - the cost of shipping to England was the same as the price of the kit!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I just hope it lives up to expectations (good job dancing rains shipping was cheaper, maybe I should have just bought the heavy baby pattern and got supplies from dancing rain <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">) Never mind LOL

I think Joy's Heavy Babies are adorable too....my girls didn't like the idea of having a baby with no legs though.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I know you'll be happy with DRD...and let me know what you think of the Heavy Baby as well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Happy Dollmaking!!!!
