I'm Giving Away Matilda in Just One Week!

Matilda MarchmontYes! The long-awaited day is now only one week away . . . on September 1, 2012 I'm drawing a name and someone will win one Matilda, A Girl for All Times Doll (USA only)! Please be sure to check the specifics for how to be entered in the drawing so you can be included in the drawing for this beautiful doll.

Matilda is made from high quality, durable vinyl and is 16-inches tall with articulated elbows and knees. This deluxe doll comes dressed in a historically inspired costume of luxurious grey velvet with a plum kirtle, period underwear and petticoat. Court shoes, key necklace and headdress included. I'm also including the book, Matilda's Secrets, so you will be able to learn all about Matilda and what happens when she goes to live at the palace of King Henry VIII. 

I especially appreciated how this doll and her story allowed me the opportunity to learn about Tudor England. The story is well written and while it is fiction, the writers were careful to include historically accurate information and King Henry's court and all which happened when Catherine Howard became the king's new wife.

I love how the A Girl for All Times dolls encourage imagination and fun along with learning history - both imagined and real! Matilda is a beautiful doll and is sure to be loved by any girl who receives her! I'm giving this doll away in a drawing on September 1, 2012 (USA only)! If you have followed grandma's cookie jar with Google Friend Connect and/or "Follow grandma's cookie jar by email", then you are entered in the drawing which will be on September 1, 2012 - just one week to go!
