Meeting Hitty Bertine Simmons

So, things got weird in the Wylde Kingdom for a little while. We actually closed our borders (no dolls in, no dolls out). Well, at least we tried to.

And then, yesterday, we got a surprise from our buddies Beth and Hitty Caroline.

A Hitty!!!

Anyway, it was late at night when she arrived, and she had a long trip, so I let her rest and then this morning got to really meet her.

This is Hitty Bertine Simmons, sister to Hitty Caroline in New York.

And now she wants to live here! 

Because, you know, who wouldn't? 

So day one, the first adventure for Hitty Bertine was meeting my roommate Devika. 

Who, upon finding out Bertine IS a Hitty made this weird squeeking noise...

... and went running out the front door. 

Which meant I had to warn Bertine that Vee is probably NOT the only crazy pixie she's going to meet here. We're all a little nutty. 

So we were chatting about why she wanted to come here, what she wanted to see. Turns out she reads my blog! I'm flattered, and it means she's got fine taste in literature. 

And in comes Devika, with a wagon full of clothes and shoes! 

She explained that when she found out our first Hitty, Hitty Rosabelle Kleider, was coming, she kind of went nuts coming up with dresses for her. And then when she arrived, they were all too big and not a one of them fit her. So she immediately thought they might fit Hitty Bertine!

Bertine thought they were awfully pretty. 

And they fit her PERFECTLY! Devika was so pleased, and I think Bertine was too. Instant wardrobe! 

So, welcome to the Wylde Kingdom, Hitty Bertine Simmons. We are so happy to have you here. 

She's touring the Kingdom now, with Devika. Starting at Vee's plant shop. Leaving me here to contemplate Hitty housing. But I'll come up with something. Something awesome. 

It's what I do.

P.S. You should totally check out Hitty Bertine's family, her sister's got a blog and it's found here - The Continuing Adventures of Hitty Caroline. They're an interesting bunch, and there's always something interesting going on. We are so honored to have Hitty Bertine here. Thank you SO MUCH Beth and Caroline. We'll take good care of her. Promise. - Miri


  1. Oh how exciting for you all to have a new arrival. I read Hitty Caroline's blog so it is lovely to see a sister has come to live with you. Great clothes, isn't she lucky!

  2. I went off to read past posts and Hitty Caroline's blog, got sidetracked from one post to another, just found my way back here again. Glad Bertine joined you. What a lovely wardrobe for her. I can't wait what housing solution you come up with and am looking forward to all the new adventures ahead!

  3. Wow! What a fine arrival! And you give a Hitty a few dresses, and she's yours for keeps! What fun!

  4. Miri, you and Wendy are so awesome! Caroline and I knew she'd have a great home with you.

  5. Hi Serenata! Caroline's blog is so fun, and we enjoy it so much too. But we never, EVER dreamed one of her sisters would come here to live! Hitty Bertine may be lucky to have so many dresses, but WE are so lucky to have HER! :)

    Hi Veronique! Hitty Caroline's blog is really fun, and I'm so glad you enjoyed it enough to get sidetracked. She has great adventures. I don't know what kind of housing Bertine has in mind, but I'm thinking a big, Victorian house! We'll see!

    Hey Tracy! We were floored! And I guess I'd heard that kind of thing about Hittys, but I didn't really know. Hitty Rosabelle is pretty laid back, and she doesn't say much. But Devika is so excited to get to sew for someone again. I have a feeling Bertine is going to end up with a LOT of clothes.

    Hi Maddy! Well, thank you. We think that YOU are pretty awesome for trusting us to take care of Bertine! She's wonderful, and I think she's starting to settle in. We'll keep you posted, promise. Thank you again, so much!!!

  6. Hello from Spain: she is very original. I like the dress she's wearing. Nice house. Keep in touch

  7. Oh Wow Miranda has a Hitty Too! I Love Hitty Bertine, and Know Miranda will come up with a Wonderful House for her - Love those frocks all lined up too - Congratulations! :)

  8. Hi Marta! Thank you! We are so lucky to have one of Hitty Caroline's sisters here. She's a big ol' sweetiepants. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hey Tiggy! Like I said on Facebook, Hittys are EVERYWHERE! It's crazy. I guess I just didn't really notice them before, but now it seems like they're all over the place. They're pretty neat, so it's okay. Bertine has this crazy sense of humor that just kills me. I'm so glad she's here. I can't wait to see what adventures your new Hitty friend gets up to!

    Oh yes... her house. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to present it to her, 'cause she's going to go into shock. It isn't Wightwick Manor (I wish), but it's like the next best thing. I'll figure it out, but wish me luck anyway!
