A Girl For All Time Holiday Doll Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

My daughter, Hannah has a special relationship with her favorite doll, Matilda, Your Tudor Girl™ from the A Girl For All Time® doll collection. This beautiful doll collection has three dolls from a 500 year time span throughout British history including Matilda, Amelia and Clementine of the fictional Marchmont family. It also features a historical novel for each collectible doll (recommended for ages 9 and up), accessories, tea sets, keepsake books and beautiful doll outfits.

A Girl For All Time Holiday Doll Review

Designed by London fashion designer, Katya Wildman and Emmy awarding winning costume designer Caroline Harris this doll collection is absolutely extraordinary. My daughter and I were so impressed when we first “met” Matilda because the attention to every detail on this doll is stunning. Each A Girl For All Time doll is created using a hand-sculpting technique and computer technology so she looks like she is made of fine porcelain. However, these are dolls that may look like collectibles in every way yet they are actually made of vinyl so little girls can play with their doll for many years. The doll’s hair and facial features and the 16” body with articulated elbows and knees are exquisitely designed and the doll can even be posed. I was impressed but not surprised to learn that each doll in this collection is a prestigious Platinum award winner as the Oppenheim Best Toy!

Hannah and her precious doll, Matilda go on many adventures together such as tea parties and they even enjoy getting Matilda dressed up for Matilda’s Masked Ball ($29.99) complete with a historically accurate taffeta silk gown, a cream kirtle skirt, dancing shoes and a silver trimmed mask in the most beautiful sea-green color.

Recently, Matilda received her new Amelia’s Party Dress ($49.99) set which includes a shimmering pink taffeta-silk jacket and skirt along with shoes and a feathered walking hat. The pretty mutton sleeves and lace trimmed collar with a detachable bustle accented in velvet with taffeta ruffles is gorgeous. This is such a lovely set that really accentuates the doll’s beauty.

What makes A Girl For All Time such a special collection is that each doll is so realistic that my daughter can enjoy hours and hours of role playing with her beloved friend. The exciting historical content transports girls back to a different time period and they are learning while also having fun on their many adventures. If you have a special child who loves dolls then I highly recommend from personal experience A Girl For All Time. These are the types of dolls and accessories that can be handed down through the family from generation to generation.

You are invited to visit A Girl For All Time to browse the entire selection of dolls, doll accessories, novels and more. This would make a wonderful holiday gift idea for any girl who is sure to treasure her new doll for years to come. Which doll is your favorite?
