  1. Aww, I didn’t see “Kaya” on the doll list!

  2. I have Felicity. I bought her as a gift to myself when I was pregnant with Joshua (9). She’s lovely 🙂 Currently seated atop my knitting basket, near my cozy chair.

  3. I hope you bought one at some point – they have stopped making many of the historical dolls, including Felicity. And yes, I wrote a letter. Several in fact.

    (and we don’t have Felicity either! My girls opted for Kirsten and Samantha, and I was very happy to oblige on their eighth birthdays, which was just in time, since they aren’t available anymore either, harumph)

  4. Yes, actually, Rilla was given Felicity for Christmas by her grandparents. And I hardly had to coach her selection at ALL. 😉
