The Fashionable Bambino was offered an invitation to receive a Madeline doll and book to review in celebration of Madelineâ€™s 70th Anniversary. Of course, we obliged them and took them up on their offer. Certain little girls will love the new plush, dressable Madeline. I personally know of a little lady who was immensely surprised and pleased in opening the UPS package that arrived at our door yesterday, especially since she did not know it would be arriving.
The Madeline doll is soft, cuddly and perfect for little hands to carry around easily without any bulkiness. She comes with a removable blue coat that has Velcro closures in front. Her red plaid dress is also removable, as are her bloomers/panties. Her hat, socks and shoes are securely fastened â€“ making it easier to keep track of accessories! No more lost doll socks and shoes! There are more outfits available for this sweet little doll. There is an interesting little surprise marking on Madeline, can any of you guess what it is? I wasn’t the one to find it either!
The book Madeline and the Cats of Rome by John Bemelmans Marciano is written in the style the Madeline series is known for with its rhyming story. It shows Madelineâ€™s bravery and commitment to doing what is right â€“ a very amiable trait to present and retain in childrenâ€™s literature in todayâ€™s world. Most adult fans of Madeline will love the old charm that is characteristic of Madeline and children love her no matter what because she is charming and delightful as always.
