The full effect of having a girl after three boys was noticed in our house when three dolls’ prams were permanently parked by the back door. There’s a basic dolls umbrella stroller for quick trips to the shops; there’s a white cane pram that the dolls apparently prefer to sleep in; and there’s a beautiful 1940s wicker pram that is favoured for turns around the garden. My daughter likes dolls prams but she obviously didn’t buy them herself… I guess I have to take some of the responsibility for the pram-jam at the back door.
So it was a serious case of dolls pram envy when I saw the superb range by Lusan. Featuring hand-woven wicker baskets, wooden handles and a plush, fully lined interior with a mattress set, the Classic German Heirloom prams are simply amazing.
Each of the pieces in the Lusan range is beautifully detailed. From the velvet panels of the Bridgette Dolls Carriage to the delicate broderie anglaise hood on the Rattan Rocker, these are ‘toys’ to be treasured.
For little girls who want more pink in their doll’s nursery décor, Lusan’s new range of dolls cots and prams have sweet understated touches of pale pink. The Julia Dolls Basket includes neat little wicker tidy baskets for all of your dolly bits and pieces and coordinates perfectly with the Erica Dolls Carriage. However, if you are thinking pink, the wicker Rebecca Moses basket is surely a doll nursery must-have.
The German Heirloom prams range from $190 to $330. The Julia Dolls Basket is $150 and the Moses basket is $60. Lusan prams are available at a number of retailers around Australia including Toys & Tales (NSW), Dolls in the Attic and Bears Too (VIC), Ruby’s Room (Tas), The Play Room (WA), The Fairy Shop (Qld) and Barbara’s Home and Gifts (SA).
