If you have a little girl to make an Easter Basket for, WellieWishers might just be on her list. WellieWishers are a sweet and silly group of girls who each have the same big, bright wish: to be a good friend. I know that candy is the tradition, but many families are asking the Easter Bunny to make “No Candy” Easter Baskets this year. Any WellieWishers fan would love this ultimate WellieWishers Easter Basket.  Fans are sure to be so excited about the beautiful WellieWisher’s theme that they won’t even miss the candy.

If your child already has a WellieWishers doll, you might find it to be very budget friendly to purchase a few items to enrich playtime with that doll.  We personally prefer to purchase something to go along with what we already have, rather than a plush Easter bunny or chick. We have just found they get more use out of things they already have interest in.

Why do we love WellieWishers dolls?  WellieWishers are part of the American Girl Doll collection.  We love that American Girl Dolls are for girls of all ages.  We love that American Girl brings out what’s best through stories of courage, friendship, and compassion. Our daughters love the rich world the brand has created. WellieWishers are just as fun as the original American Girl Doll, but with a bit more whimsy. WellieWishers are slightly smaller than the traditional 18 inch American Girl Doll at about 14.5 inches. The WellieWisher line also has a much lower price point at $60 per doll. Just like their 18 inch doll counterparts, they have a rich story line, accessories, pets, fun outfits, and books to inspire.

Here is what is included in our WellieWishers No Candy Easter Basket. While all of the WellieWishers are ready for spring showers, we thought this set was especially perfect for this Spring Holiday! There are so many other options, make sure to check out the other dolls, accessories, outfits, and books on American Girl. With the exception of the doll, each items is priced between $5.99 and $24.

For our basket we chose the beautiful Willa. Willa loves animals. She has strawberry-blond hair and hazel eyes. Her outfit is as whimsical as one would imagine from a WellieWisher. She has a hedge-hog themed outfit including details like dimensional ears and satin ribbon trim. The signature wardrobe item is of course a pair of Wellies.  Willa’s Wellie boots are the cutest in my opinion with a sweet Ladybug face.

Of course the sweet little WellieWisher needs something extra special too!.  This Tulip Costume is the perfect outfit for welcoming Spring! This beautiful dress includes an Acorn hat and sweet ballet flats.

Fox & Composting Can – Seriously, how cute is this? My daughter thinks this is especially cute because we have a composter at home too! This is a fun way to teach about conservation. This feisty fox fascinates the WellieWishers, as she seems to be behind many of the mysterious happenings in the garden. She has soft russet fur with a white chest. The set includes a composting can and a lid.

welliewishers book for young readersWellieWishers Book – We have always included books in our Easter baskets. WellieWishers books are great for younger readers. Suggested at 5+, but my 11 year old enjoyed this sweet story as much as my 6 year old did!  At $5.99, this is a very budget friendly option!

At Christmas time we shared a list of American Girl Doll items under $25.  While this original post was to share small stocking stuffer ideas, this list is also perfect for moderately priced Easter Basket items. We also shared a simple and beautiful American Girl Doll DIY Necklace that might be fun for Spring Break.
