A couple years ago my parents gave me a set of Christmas matryoshka dolls for my birthday. We all like seeing them when we decorate for December,
but BabyCakes looooves the "Christmas eggs," as she calls them.
This year I decided to buy her a set that she can have out and play with all year long. (The paint on the Christmas ones seems a bit fragile so she doesn't get to just play with them a lot.)
Turns out those suckers aren't cheap.
Unless you inadvertently order them from China (on Amazon).
And then it takes 6 freakin weeks to get them.
Merry Christmas! Happy New Year! Here you go, BabyCakes. It's a Wednesday -- have fun."
There are 10 in total and red/pink in color... and they are precious. I knew the giant set would thrill her because she's never seen a set with more than 5 dolls in total, and that's kind of the point of them when you're a kid -- taking them apart and then nesting them again... over and over and over.
The tiniest one, complete with a painted face and all, was her favorite.
It fits inside the smallest doll to still open, named "Alice" by BabyCakes.
This morning she named all the girls and I wrote their names inside.
