2015 Award
Lottie Doll Collection
(Arku $19.99-34.99 Score:)

Lottie arrived a little late this season but better late than never! She's one of those special collectables, only 7.5 inches tall, available with different hair color, styles and interests. Best of all the Lottie collection conveys positive messages about the many roles girls can play. While her clothing choices are vast, she is more than another fashion plate. Like girls today, she has interests as varied as karate, soccer, riding and the solar system. Lottie Stargazer ($24.95) is dressed in a warm jacket, boots and hat to go out on a wintery night and view the sky with her own telescope (included along with solar system cards). Girls are encouraged to visit the European Space Agency website, www.esa.int/kids to find space information, quizzes and games. Pony Club Lottie ($34.95) is the biggie of the season; a blonde Lottie dressed in riding clothes and packaged with her own black beauty pony. There are many other accessories for the young rider and this is sure to make a hit with the young horsie set. Also new and less pricey this season, Lottie Fossil Hunter with her backpack and hiking clothes, or Muddy Puddles in her yellow slicker and Rockabilly, a musician who wears a vintage school jacket and glasses. Each are $19.99. Like a number of other doll collections this year, you can find Lottie dolls with the accent on sports, active life and several with a link to STEM learning. For a small collectable, she has a lot of versatility. Marked for 3 and up, we think these will be easier for slightly older girls, who will be able to get the clothes both on and off. Preschoolers generally do not have the fine motor skills to handle the tiny shoes and clothes; they do well with the undressing part and then will need adult help to get the tiny clothes back on or add this to their collection of naked dolls.

2015 Award
Corolle Mon Premier Diaper Backpack
(Corolle $42 Score:)

For girls on the go, this new fabric and color way of the original diaper backpack; perfect for carrying a 12-inch doll and all of baby's accessories. Unzip it and there is a changing pad for diaper changes. This is marked for 18 months and up, but we'd say it's a better bet for 3's and up. A perfect take-along for overnights at Grandma's or longer trips.

2015 Awards
Corolle Mon Classique Valentine Doll
(Corolle $84 Score:)

A lovable 14-inch soft-bodied baby doll wearing a grey dress with a ruffle that runs up the bodice that is topped with a pink jacket with white fleecy trim. Her knit tights and silvery shoes with tiny pink bows are the finishing touches that set her apart. She has sleepy eyes that close when she lies down, but she can be posed in a sitting up position and just like a real baby, she can even suck her thumb. A sweet armful to love. 3 & up.

2015 Award
Corolle Les Cheries Cecile a la Tour Eiffel
(Corolle $52 Score:)

This lovely 13-inch African American doll is dressed this season in a fashionable ensemble of a pink top with blue polka dots, cuffed jeans, and gold trimmed blue jacket with a tiny embroidered Eiffel tower. Her sassy pink beret, pink and red cap-toe ballet flats, and blue bag give Cecile a fashion forward look. She has big brown eyes, a friendly smile, and silky, long black hair for brushing and styling. Or consider Les Cheries Cecile Soiree Gala doll; featuring Cecile dressed for an evening outing in a bright pink, bow-accented dress under a purple cropped jacket with sparkling accessories. Either way, like all Corolle dolls she is lightly scented with vanilla. Marked 3 & up, but we think this is more like a 5 & up doll.

2015 Award
Mon Premier Bebe Calin Ballerina
(Corolle $39.99 Score:)

A darling Calin 12-inch bald baby doll, done up in a ballerina tutu and headband. 

She has a a soft beanbag body, lightly scented with vanilla, and vinyl skin with open and close eyes. Calin is light enough to cuddle and her one-piece clothes are easy on and off. Her tights and pink ballet slippers may require adult help to redo.  Marked 18 months and up, we think this particular Calin is more appropriate for older twos and up.

2015 Award
Mattel Barbie Eye Doctor Doll & Playset
(Mattel $19.99 Score:)

A play setting complete with eye chart, examining chair and patient comes with Eye Doctor Barbie (who also wears glasses!)  For kids getting their first pair of eye glasses, it's comforting to see Barbie also wearing hers. We like the idea of Barbie roleplaying as an Ophthalmologist, even if they didn't call her that. We could almost call this a step toward S.T.E.M. learning.  A good setting to role play with before kids visit their own eye doctor for a check up. Also available in African American version. 4 & up.

Manhattan Toy Groovy Boy Asher
(Manhattan Toy $15 Score:)

We are always on the lookout for boy dolls and this a great example. Asher is wearing khaki shorts and a blue and white striped shirt with a skull and bones. He has brownish yarn hair and his clothes are removable. With stitch features, he's totally safe for younger players.
