Do you know what’s special about the day you came into the world? Of course, it brought us fabulous YOU, but were you born on a significant day? Maybe you were, and you don’t even know it! The concept behind Bitty Buttons dolls revolves around this idea.
With a tag line of “Sew magical – Sew cute™”, each Bitty Button™ was born on a special day in history and has her own personality developed by the fabrics used to make her. Designed to encourage a child’s imagination and creativity, Bitty Buttons™ teaches important life lessons such as diversity, individuality and the idea that everything deserves a second life. The Bitty Buttons™ live in a fantastical world full of silly surprises and with love and a bit of imagination, the Bitty Buttons™ magic can go on forever.
Check out the first group of Bitty Buttons released:
Jewel Sparkles™ – Sewn on date: March 13th (National Jewel Day) – Jewel was made from remnants of a real princess’ dress. Jewel is very graceful, a little bit bossy, and loves to dance and wear sparkly clothes. She has a Persian cat.
Peanut Big Top™ – Sewn on date: April 1st (April Fools’ Day) – Peanut was made from bits of a brightly-colored clown costume. She is a silly prankster who’s a little bit clumsy and loves to make her friends laugh. She has a pet elephant.
Bea Spells-a-Lot™ – Sewn on date: October 16th (Dictionary Day) – Bea was made from a school girl’s uniform. She is a real smartypants, who always follows the rules and loves to talk…a lot!!! She has a pet owl.
Mittens Fluff ‘n’ Stuff™ – Sewn on date: December 21st (First day of Winter) – Mittens was made from pieces of an Eskimo’s scarf. She loves hot cocoa, snow fights, and snuggling by the fire. She has her own pet polar bear.

Pillow Featherbed ™– Sewn on date: January 3rd (Festival of Sleep Day) – Pillow was made from pieces of a baby’s blankie. She loves good stories, long naps, and her favorite snack is milk and cookies. Pillow has her own pet sheep.
Spot Splatter Splash™– Sewn on date: October 25th (Picasso’s birthday) – Spot was made from a painter’s overalls. She’s super creative and loves bright colors, big messes, and eating spaghetti. She has a pet zebra.
We were sent Peanut Big Top, sewn on April 1st (April Fool’s Day of course!) and appropriately so!
Peanut Big Top was made from a clown’s costume, as detailed above, and it shows that she is not at all concerned with what others think of her fun, funky appearance.
The doll reminds me of the kind that grandmother’s made years ago for the family (maybe some still do?) Sweet, simplistic, and perfect for little girls to hold and love.
If you know a creative free-spirit, Peanut Big Top is one of several Bitty Buttons dolls that would be perfect for her.
The latest Bitty Buttons doll to join the family is Crumbs Sugar Cookie – sewn on December 4th (National Cookie Day!) and made from bits of an apron. Adorable!
The Bitty Buttons website itself has an area where children can play among the Bitty Buttons in Button Town.
No code is needed to play in Button Town which is great – everyone can play whether they have a real Bitty Buttons doll or not. Parents may want to introduce their children to the website first to see if there’s interest in Bitty Buttons, and then surprise their kids with a doll of their very own after!
