Who doesn't love the 4th of July? Celebrating our nation's birth, July 4 brings to mind picnics, parades, parties, patriotic clothes, fireworks and more, and the same holds true for the Liv World dolls.
If the high cost of well-made doll cloths has got you down, here is a little DIY project to brighten your day. If you are careful to stitch the edges of any places you cut, you can make cute hand-made doll clothes from socks.
When the Disney movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs came out in 1937, it was soon followed by a variety of Snow White dolls. More then seven decades have passed since the Snow White movie premiered, but today Snow White dolls are more popular than ever as evidenced by toy store shelves.
Summer is fast approaching as the days grow longer and warmer. Memorial Day kicks off the unofficial start of summer, but summer does not officially begin until the summer solstice in June when the sun is at its highest position in the sky. The Liv World friends can't wait for summer to begin.
Dolls are one of the most popular toys of all time and make every girl's wish list along with their clothes and
accessories, which can cost a fortune!

The Victorious dolls by Spin Master were released at the end of 2011 featuring cast members Jade, Cat and Trina. The doll bodies are copyright 2010 and made in China. The Victorious doll bodies share some similarities to the Liv doll bodies which are copyright 2009 by Spin Master and also made in China.
The bodies and feet are close enough in size so the dolls can wear the same clothes and shoes, so the Victorious doll clothes can round out Liv's wardrobe and vice versa. Since the Liv dolls have been discontinued along with their clothes, the Victorious doll clothes make a nice option.
