Ok, so the title of this post would probably send me into a long debate with my daughter who LOVES barbies! Since she turned 4 she thinks Barbie is the best thing in the world! But I think showing this post to Leah and maybe making a few of these ideas could make her think twice about those long-legged plastic dolls of hers! Take a look:

Japanese Paper Dolls, from Omiyage

Bead Dolls, with New Nostalgia

Printable Lace Up, from Yellow Mums

Corn Husk Dolls from Unschool Me

Wood People, from Serving Pink Lemonade

Magnetic Dress Up Dolls, from The Mother Huddle

Felt Dolls, from The Life of Jennifer Dawn

Fairy DressUp Dolls, from Babalisme

Flat felt dolls, from Moda Bake Shop

Leaf Fairies, from Puppy Love Preschool

Magnetic Paper Dolls with One Pearl Button

Felt Doll Dress Up Book, from Thrillingly Thrifty

How cute and creative! I never was much of a Barbie fan anyway!
