Madame Alexander Dolls at Beacon's Glow Collectibles

Please do not forget that all Madame Alexander Dolls are always marked 20% off MSRP prices (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price). And with every 8-inch and 10-inch Madame Alexander Doll purchased, a white metal enamel doll stand (made in the USA) will be included free of charge with your order. (Despite a competitor recently stating that they are the only retailer to include a doll stand free of charge with each Madame Alexander doll, we have been faithfully doing this since we started carrying Madame Alexander dolls back in 2003).

As is always the case, there are many incredible Madame Alexander Dolls being introduced in 2012. Please stay tuned as we will be sure to get them out on the site as soon as possible after receiving them.

And, if there are any Madame Alexander dolls in particular that you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us by email and we will do our best to check if they are still available. Or in the case of a new doll, we can check and see when they are expected to ship from the Alexander Doll Company.

Thank you for your continued support!

An Incredible Steiff Rabbit Named Valentina EAN 035760

Valentina by Steiff Bears (EAN 035760) has just arrived and is a perfect way to welcome Spring.

According to Steiff:
"Valentina is the companion to last year´s Valentin. "It was great fun to give such a charming and proud boy rabbit a girlfriend," says the designer. "She had to be sweet and elegant." And Valentina certainly is. Valentina´s body is white and brown alpaca with sandy brown around her eyes. She has a white muzzle, chest, tummy, and cheeks. She has airbrushing detail to her eyes which makes it look as if she has eyelashes - giving her a special feminine appeal. She has delicate soft pink airbrushing in her ears, on her cheeks, and across her muzzle. "Valentina is unique because she matches so well to Valentin and because she looks so feminine," says the designer. "The colours I have chosen match very well together. I am very proud about the sweet look in her face."

Made of high quality alpaca, brown, 5-way jointed, surface washable, limited edition of 1,500 pieces worldwide, stuffed with synthetic filling material, with safety eyes, with gold-plated "Button in Ear"."

Valentina stands 9 inches tall and wears an adorable Sunday Best sleeveless lavender and white dress. She holds a matching hat in her rabbit paw.

She would look great displayed on her own and even better standing next to Valentin.

A perfect way to welcome Spring into your home!
