Grooming Practice

July 27th, 2010 at 08:31 am

Does your young kid, much to your chagrin, cut the doll's hair, the cat's whiskers, or raid your closet to dress up?

OK, try this. Your sanity will be saved, not to mention your dollars, with this thrift store / yardsale tip:

Most of the stuffed animals in our local thrifts are $1 or less. Go pick out a really long haired one and let your little future groomer give it a hair cut. We've done this twice and it is FUN and REWARDING. You wouldn't believe how different the critter will look afterwards. My kid even did a 'poodle' style on one, ie puffy feet, poofy tail end. HA!

Anyone try this trick out with a long haired thrift doll for future salon owners?

Treat your princess with a really fancy ~ real wedding ~ gown. Yes, thrifts sell formals! And the cost is a teeny price for the glamour. Cut the bottom off to shorten (squeeze your eyes closed and just CUT!). Pin the back or straps to make it smaller.

    Love the earrings! And that is a great idea! I will pass it on to my friend who has a young daughter.

    Love your stuffed animal haircut idea! Smile

    I like your idea about turning the little ones loose on second hand stuffed animals! My daughter would love that, although I fear it would lead her to want to keep it. Maybe after we secure a little hygiene insurance by running it through the washer?
