Do you know that feeling you get when you hold a new baby doll for the very first time? How your heart just swells with love and warm welcome? One of the perks about working here at The Ashton-Drake Galleries, is getting to experience that feeling with each new addition to our Ashton-Drake family.
So it is with great joy and pride in my heart, that I introduce you to some of our sweetest little bundles of love!
Pretty and Petite Presley
Created by Master Doll Artist Cheryl Hill and handcrafted with TrueTouchTM silicone, Baby Presley is absolutely enchanting. The warmth of her beautiful brown eyes are enhanced with delicate hand-applied eyelashes, and she has a lovely sun-kissed glow thanks to hand-painted artistry. And, not only does she feel just like a real baby in your arms, she can also hold her white pacifier in her mouth, all by herself.

Kaylie’s Brand Sparkling New
It’s hard to resist Kaylie’s sparkling blue eyes! They’re beautiful and bright, just like her! And, her outfit perfectly matches her personality. Adorned with glitter, rhinestones, metallic stitching, and of course bows, Kaylie’s outfit shines just like she does. There’s no doubt baby Kaylie knows how to make an entrance.

She is slumbering so sweetly, you want to softly kiss her closed eyes. Beautiful Dreamer is touch-activated, so you’ll seeher chest gently lift and fall when you place your hand on her. Snuggle up against her, and you’ll hear her soft “heartbeat” as she sleeps so peacefully. She’s also weighted and poseable, which just adds to her realism. I know I’m not supposed to have a favorite, but…

Lauren and Teddy
Baby Lauren is a portrait of sweetness! A look of joy twinkles from her bright blue eyes, and she has an expression of such excited expectation. Her tiny footie socks match her very best friend, a snuggly teddy bear that’s never far from reach. What a sweet pair!

Hope and Faith
Blessed with twins! Hope was the first born, a beautiful button-nosed little girl. Seconds later, Faith arrived, greeting the world with pudgy cheeks and an adorable smile. They have been fast friends from the start, and love to be cuddled up next to each other in their snuggly fleece baby bunting made especially for two. Even their outfits are coordinated, from the monogrammed headbands holding back their fine hand-rooted hair, right down to their adorable chevron-patterned shorts.

Perfectly poised and polite, little girl Grace is perched at the edge of her chair dressed in a custom-designed ivory-colored party dress. Her skirt is full, made from layers of satin, lace and tulle, and more than 200 pink faux pearls are hand-sewn onto her gown. The elegance is picked up in her beautiful faux pearl necklace. As she waits patiently for her parents, she cradles a pretty faux peony in her hands, ready to give to mom.
