there's a blog that i follow (i know...another blog i follow. i get like, 100 feeds a day...it's tough to keep up with them) called made by joel. i've stopped bookmarking individual posts of his in my "kids" bookmark tab because every single thing could be bookmarked, so anytime i need ideas for what to do with my little one, i have a tendency to scan his site.
this post on vintage fabric dolls is to DIE for. i like how simple the concept is, and how really, dolls can be any shape and size--it's whether your child loves it is what matters. i haven't made these yet, but i certainly plan to!
