Boo's birthday was a couple of weeks ago. One of her gifts was matching tops for her and her Sashas from Jackapotamus/Sashapotamus. I was worried she might declare that nine was too old for dolls, but luckily that didn't happen. Not only did she wear her "pirate bear" shirt to school the next day (with leg bone leggings!), but she brought her babies in their onesies too.
Kitty and Madden traveled to and from school in a basket, then hung out in the kitchen later like the basket was a playpen.
The next week she and Kitty and Calla went to school wearing pink kittens. I custom-ordered the onesie specifically for Kitty, and Boo was thrilled with it.
They also traveled in the basket and hung out in it for several days afterward in Boo's bedroom.
I'm glad that nine still isn't too old to play with (and dress like) dolls.
