Now that Olivia is getting older, she loves playing with dolls. She will point to and identify their facial features (eyes, nose, mouth, ears, hair…) and hug and kiss them. I love to watch her play and explore!

I’m a huge fan of the cuddle + kind brand. Their dolls are so well made and absolutely adorable! Also, every doll purchased provides 10 meals to a child in need.

So, I was super excited when we were gifted their newest doll, Maya. Now available! She’s a mermaid named after Maya Angelou, and her design was inspired by a warm summer sunset. Her favorite quote is, “She believed she could, so she did.”

I love that cuddle + kind is focusing more on diversity, and Maya represents that. Now Olivia has a high quality doll that looks like her, and her design is perfect for this Florida babe.
