IF I HAD $100 I’d go buy a small papier-mache doll made by the collaborative husband and wife team: MUMBREEZE – from Little Cakes. They are reversible – so its like getting 2 dolls for the price of one. if you can spring for $200 – you can get 2 dolls – which is like getting 4 dolls for the price of two !!!
