Introducing Jacob.

Continuing on with my series of introducing the Sasha & Gregor dolls that arrived last year:

Jacob, the first course doll to arrive here at Rose Cottage was never formally introduced, although he did feature in some posts last year...

He arrived in April 2015, almost exactly a year ago, so it seems quite fitting to introduce him formally this April.

He enjoyed getting out in the garden today and is most definitely looking forward to warmer weather and spending more time outside with the other lads.

He has a smattering of freckles across his nose.

Here is his arrival photo.  Rather overdressed for Spring! Perhaps he knew in advance last year that our summer was going to be virtually non-existent?!

Here you can see his freckles better.

He couldn't wait to shed his warm coat and get outside.  Although not especially an ideal colour for outdoor play....fortunately before long he had changed into something more suitable.

Of course these photos have been seen before when he was tadpole spotting with Jemima

He tried a spot of apple picking here.

I wonder what he will get up to this year?


  1. Wonderful how these Course Dolls have suddenly taken off with the Sasha collectors of late. They are certainly very TRENDY at the moment.
    Great to meet Jacob (loving his freckles!)and to see him enjoying your garden (useful to know too that the American Girl dungarees fit these dolls.)
    Smart outfit that he arrived in but as you say not a suitable colour for playing out in the garden.

    1. Isn't it just? I don't know about Trendy, but glad to have been able to achieve something on my 'wishlist' and also having a soft spot for 'soft bodied' dolls, these really do fit the spot in the Sasha world of collecting.

      Always good to find other sources of clothing as well as you say - these American Girl Dungarees are great in that they fit both the Course dolls and the Sasha/Gregor dolls - just a different look is achieved with the fit.

      His smart outfit has been tucked away carefully, :-)

  2. Jacob is a very handsome boy and I love his freckles. The AG dungarees look fantastic on him and I am happy he was your first course doll. I, too, have a soft spot for soft bodied dolls and I love the course dolls. A great introductory post. :) xxx
