Sure, you’ve spent years perfecting the balance of Santa, Mrs. Claus, the reindeers, and that blasted Elf on the Shelf that litter your shelves, walls, mantles, and the like, but listen – sometimes, when something adorable and delightful comes along, you have to be willing to mix things up.
And as family holiday films go, who doesn’t love How the Grinch Stole Christmas?
It’s sweet, wholesome, funny, has a great message (plus Jim Carrey!), and the best part?
No one expects these cute little baby Grinches to move and get into some kind of trouble every night.
The dolls are 18 inches long, weighted, and hand-painted – the latter part is the reason one will set you back around $300.
They’re from the Etsy shop Worbla Crafts, where you can also nab yourself a Pennywise doll for your autumnal decor, or a Baby Yoda doll that’s obviously perfect year round.
The baby Grinch, modeled on the baby we meet in Carrey’s version of the story, has green fuzzy fur/hair all over its head, arms, and legs. It comes with a Christmas outfit and a baby blanket, so it’s ready for its spot in your household – one I’m positive it will occupy for years to come.
You can request a doll to be made and shipped to you in around 3 weeks, and you’ll get to choose its outfit in that case, as well.
One sort of looks like something Santa would wear, and one is a candy-can striped pajamas and a matching hat – you know, the sort of thing your kiddos refuse to wear for you any more!
I don’t know about you, but this one seems like it might be worth the splurge!
