Rubens Barn Baby Dolls

Frugality Is Free Disclaimer review and giveaway

With three boys in the family, I am thrilled to have a baby girl to share my love for pretty dresses, my favorite authors and love for dolls and all things pretty. So, when Bellamy Blue was born, I searched all over for the perfect Baby’s First Doll for her. I looked at many first dolls, but I finally found the perfect first doll at Magic Cabin.

Let me introduce you to Molly from Rubens Barn.

Rubens Barn Doll Molly

The boys and I looked through the huge selection of Rubens Barn dolls at Magic Cabin, and we finally decided that the Rubens Barn Baby doll Molly was the perfect match with our baby girl. The Rubens Barn Molly doll has the same caramel skin as Bellamy Blue, the same dark hair with a little bit of curl to it, and the same beautiful dark eyes. My boys had no doubts, Molly was the perfect first baby doll for their baby sister.

As a mother of four multiracial children, I was very excited to have so many skin, hair and eye options to choose from in the Rubens Barn collection. There are not many multiracial dolls available, and I was impressed to see that we could find one that even matched our family’s three different racial backgrounds so closely.

Bellamy Blues brothers were also very eager to find the perfect match, when it came to Bellamy Blue’s hair texture, and look what a great fit they found in Molly.

Bellamy Blue’s brother Emory also wanted to play with Molly, and he was quite amazed at the resemblance between Bellamy Blue and Molly.

The handmade Ruben’s Barn doll Molly is 17-1/2″ tall, she is machine washable and her clothes is hand washable. Molly comes with a shirt, diaper, and bib, all of which is easy to remove and put back on.

Bellamy Blue already had a spit up incident, which made Molly and her clothing have to go in the washing machine. We are happy to announce that Molly came out just as pretty as she was before she headed for the washing machine. We put Molly on the gentle hand wash cycle, and she came out as good as new.


What We Love About The Rubens Barn Molly Doll:

  • It is a handmade, high quality doll
  • It is soft and cuddly
  • It is machine washable
  • The clothing is easy to take off and put on
  • It looks just like our baby girl
  • She is very tall at 17 1/2 inches
  • The Rubens Barn Baby Doll is recommended for all ages

The craftsmanship behind Molly is impeccable, the details are impressive, and this Swedish born (Chinese made) doll is everything I was looking for in a first baby doll for my baby girl. It is soft, washable, looks like my daughter, and it has been created to last. Molly looks like she is going to be Bellamy Blue’s friend for many years to come.

The Rubens Barn brand is particularly popular in Europe, and I am excited to see that Magic Cabin has such a large selection of Rubens Barn dolls available. Barn means child in Swedish, where the Rubens Doll collection originates, and the Swedes are surely known for creating quality brands.
