"A cheerful look brings joy to the heart"
Book of Proverbs
This is my favorite doll....I made her over 18 years ago. When my youngest granddaughter (Avery) grew out of a newborn outfit I bought for her when she was born,  my daughter gave it to me to dress my doll with ....
She sits on an antique rocking chair my parents gave me.
The two combined are a very special Forever Keepsake!!

My name is Karen Challender and I'm the creator of Karens Kids. 
I've been making handmade dolls of every race for over 25 years.  
 My kids are made from a soft craft velour or doe suede fabric that feels like real baby skin.  The kids stand 20" or 16" tall and can wear preemie and newborn sized clothing. For complete info on how the dolls are made, what they're made from, etc, please click here.
Page down to see pictures of a few of the kids and links to pages with all the doll's available.
A "Certificate of Adoption" comes with each 20" doll.
Certificates now come with 16" doll's, too :o)
Karens Kids are also available on my new website: 
www.karenskids.net
 GREAT GIFT IDEA
Custom made dolls can be ordered to match a child of any race.  They come fully dressed and can be ordered to match a child's hair color, eye color, hair style, etc.  These make a great gift for a child, for a parent or for yourself as a decorator doll.  For more information,

One of the kids is a movie star!! Click here for more info on

Special Angel Kids can be order to match a childs special disability or handicap. Visit my Special Angel Page
