What could be more fun than a life size cloth doll to hug , snuggle or to even nap with! This doll will always greet you with a big smile and is perfectly content to read a book, listen to music and dance, watch tv or have a tea party with teddy bears. At 3 feet tall, the doll is approximately the same height as a 3 or 4 year old child. She is the perfect “best friend” and companion for a little girl.
In addition to just being a great pal, each doll is designed to help teach important character traits such as kindness, gratefulness and generosity. There is also a My Friend Huggles interactive website for additional fun and interaction.
Because these dolls are life size, the girls can wear matching outfits just like sisters or best friends! Enjoying the bond and camaraderie of dressing alike is not something we necessarily outgrow. To this day, my own real life sister and I enjoy wearing matching outfits during the holidays. And, we frequently give each other matching jewelry. I think all kids like to play dress-up too and it would be even more fun to accessorize the dolls with matching jewelry, scarves, hair bows or costumes.
The doll with blonde hair is shown simply because blue is my favorite color. Plus, I love those adorable little slippers. However, My Friend Huggles Dolls are also available with beautiful dark hair or skin so you can select the coloring best suited to your own child. They even have a doll that wears glasses, which is really awesome for children who need glasses. They won’t have to feel so “alone” and insecure. Having a friend who shares your concerns makes a world of difference to all of us. Everyone wants a best friend who understands!
UPDATE ON MY FRIEND HUGGLES LIFE SIZE DOLLS:
Unfortunately, it appears that My Friend Huggles has gone out of business. The only place you can currently purchase these dolls is through secondary markets, like Ebay.
