This is a beautifully written and photographed book. There are so many ideas and it is ideal for people who are nostalgic over childhood toys and treasures. As a new parent, I cannot wait to make my daughter some of the lovely dolls clothes and quilts in the book. All I need now is a son, so that we can make him a fort!! If you shiver at the thought of Barbie plastic suffocating your child's room, then this is the book for you.
