Rag Dolls (and other dolls) from Children's Bedtime Stories
There's nothing cuter than a small child clutching a favorite, brightly colored, soft and cuddly, 'right' to the last detail favorite doll while being read to from that exact same book that the doll is in!
Children like the familiar, and children love dolls, so it's only natural that children's dolls based on their favorite characters would be popular!
A teddy bear to take to bed is great. A favorite character doll is even better!
