My mom said I shook with excitement when I saw her! As I grew a little older, my Dad built me a playhouse complete with a little front porch on top of a huge hill in our big back yard. Raspberry bushes grew wild around the little pink gingerbread house. A sign was made outside that read "Rasbubby Hill". And of course inside.....high-chairs, cribs and baby dolls where all lined up in a row! :)

I  purchased a lump of clay and let my imagination do the rest!  Quite some time later, an instruction manual was given to me. What I realized as I flipped through the pages.... I had been making my babies quite "backwards" from what the instructions said!  But I have stuck with my method and believe that this is what makes mine original Rasbubby Babies. No Books, No molds, just a lump of clay and that little imagination that stems back to my childhood days at....
