The Pitiful Pearl items were a birthday gift, and the recipient loved them!

The image on the magnet is darling! A nice reminder of my favorite childhood doll. It is nice quality and a good size (not too big). I also just love the two stickers you included in the envelope. I put one on my laptop and one on my daughter's. Finally. I put your thank you card image on my refrigerator! Nice drawing. Thank you.

So cute! Happy with order promptness, packaging and it’s adorable! Would order again! Thankyou!!

A splendid magnet showcasing the inimitable Pitiful Pearl. A doll-lover's delight!
