LEMON BAY DOLL BEEKEEPING COLLECTION
Doll Beehive, with optional Beekeeping Accessories
Handcrafted for 18-inch dolls such as American Girl®
To Bee, or Not to Bee - it's not even a question!
Bee-ing avid gardeners, we know the important role our little black and yellow striped friends play in the health of our garden. We help foster their visits and encourage them to stick around by supplying them with cozy hives. They are generous little fellows and doubly reward us with a bountiful harvest and un-bee-lievably sweet, delicious honey. With so many environmental issues plaguing bee colonies, beekeeping is vital to the future of bees. In an effort to foster this awareness and encourage the next generation of beekeepers, we are pleased to introduce the Lemon Bay Doll Beekeeping Collection. Now your dolls and your children can experience the joys (and trials) of beekeeping.
Our pine BEEHIVE* is constructed much like real hives with removable partitions and includes the following:
• Base & Bottom box with three removable honeycomb frames (two with honey-filled combs and bees, one freshly harvested and ready to be filled)
• Top box - felt lined and perfect to store your beekeeping supplies
• Peaked roof lid
Each piece nests atop the one below it with a peg and hole stacking system.
Our beehive is available separately, as described above, or with the following additional accessories:
BEEKEEPING HAT made of straw and fully lined to protect doll hair. Netting extends below chest to protect the beekeepers head and face. Interior lining is a yellow on yellow mini floral.
FILLED HONEYPOT A glass honeypot filled with an amber resin and a doll-sized honeycomb inclusion (not removable).
*Our doll beehives are made of made of pine, sanded but unfinished so you may paint or finish it as you choose. Our listing pictures show the beehive after waxing. We are happy to wax your beehive for you using our non-toxic beeswax-based finish for an additional $10.00. To have your piece waxed, please select the option "Hive Only WAXED" or "Hive + Access. WAXED" if you would like the beehive waxed with accessories.
Gardening is one of the ways our family enjoys being outside together. The garden is an incredible way to build an understanding of and respect for nature and our environment, and to teach kids to nurture and care for other living things while developing patience. Time spent in the garden provides countless opportunities for hands-on learning, inquiry, observation and experimentation. As we state in our mission statement, when we create toys for our children's imaginative play, we seek to impart skills that they will someday apply in life. We try to share our love of adventure and provide a vehicle with which we can teach them how to enjoy the adventure safely.

We are not associated with American Girl® in any way other than being huge fans and collectors and builders of many items that help doll play flourish in our home, and hopefully yours as well!
The love of adventure is one of the trademarks of our family. The other is erring on the side of caution. When we create toys for our children's imaginative play, we seek to impart skills that they will someday apply in life. We try to share our love of adventure and provide a vehicle with which we can teach them how to enjoy the adventure safely. We hope our toys offer this same possibility to you and your family.
Time passes so very quickly. Enjoy the adventure.
