The head will hold the hat/cap, the neck will hold the scarf/tie or choice item. The hands extended will hold gloves, if worn, and the storage seat will be storage convenient and convenient to sit and dress the feet. The final touch is the mirror that is on the bodice of the doll to take that final look of approval. The design is to conserve time, to have comfort, be a stress reliever, be fun to the child while helping to coordinate style and have everything in one location. Suggestive uses: would be designed to be a clothing rack for department stores' floor or window displays, rehabilitation purposes (seniors or children), kindergarten/daycare fun-time or teaching purposes, athletic gear use and modeling agencies for class fashion coordination dress and to public schools for the Autistic, slow and emotionally handicapped child learning. The doll valet is developed to suit residential or commercial use.

2. Description of Prior Art

The doll valet is doubled sided with accessible accommodation for easy and convenient time saving value of dress for the child and the parent. Hangers, clamps and hooks will be available to put on and take off the garments. Sizing will be available for the two age groups 4-7 and 8-12 years with left/right teaching for the smaller child. Less stress of early morning dress or for any dress where limited time maybe necessary will be valuable if pre-dress preparedness is done. The doll valet will consist of a mirrored side for a final look of dress and every area of the body's apparel will be covered for regular garment wear and outer garment wear. The doll valet will be almost child-like in size and designed to be equipped for being a learning tool. It has a storage seat for the convenience of putting on foot wear and storing items. Pre-planning value, style coordination plan, plus time element factor, should create a more relaxed feeling for actual dressing time, a more confident look, a chance to leave the room tidy and a chance to leave the house with a more pleasant out look for any occasion. Suggestive uses: would be designed to be a clothing rack for department stores' floor or window displays, rehabilitation purposes (senior or children), kindergarten/Daycare fun-time or teaching purposes, legal abuse centers (children), athletic gear usage and modeling agencies for class fashion coordination dress. Because of this kind of versatility, at this time, I know of no such product that is child size and is a two sided doll valet that accomplishes any of these features, nor has its magnitude of being a learning pre-planned dressing tool of this statue. Modifications are being developed by me as I write.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The doll valet that is a newly developed product for male or female is a doubled sided designed, child size doll that will be made for two age groups: 4-7 years and 8-12 years, sized accordingly for each group; male or female. The valet is developed to benefit developing an awareness of pre-dress to conserve time for child and parent, to have clothing in one location, a value for fun with apparel, a value for room tidiness, a value for child to coordinate style with independent choice, to then get the approval of the parent. One side of the valet will be to dress the regular dress wear and the other side will be for the outer dress wear or top apparel. A garment for each area of the doll valet is pre-dressed the night before or in plenty time before the occasion from head to feet while learning how to layer clothes, when necessary for weather conditions and more. A storage seat is available to allow more convenience of dressing the footwear and storing needed items. Hooks, clamps and hangers will be available on the doll for convenience to dress for the occasion. The head, for hat/cap and the neck for scarf/tie or choice item to be dressed. Hand and feet to teach the small child left/right learning and to learn snap, button, tie and zip, with a mirror for final inspection. The doll valet should help to speed limited time for morning dress or other limited time dress occasions to eliminate the stress of looking for clothing and other apparel, to teach planning value for dress readiness, to put time into style coordinating, to create a more confident look and to be style creative. Hopefully room tidiness will be achieved, fun time in the Kindergarten, the Day Care or anywhere the doll valet is located for “let's play dress-up.” Other uses: to put athletic gear on the doll valet for easy find, to be used as a clothing rack display for department stores floor or window, to use for rehabilitation purposes, child or adult and at public schools to help teach the emotional impairment and autistic child with slow developmental abilities.

The doll valet will be made safely, durable, attractive and cleanable from materials to suit the purpose.
