2012 Award
Tooth Treasure Princess
(North American Bear Co. $25 Score:)

Oh, what a night--when the tooth fairy comes on its magical mission! This 9-inch square pillow has a pocket for leaving a note for the tooth fairy and a felt pocket to tuck the lost tooth into. The princess is detachable from its white and pink cape and can used as a finger puppet. There is another version of this with a super hero finger puppet and less pastel look that some girls might prefer. Usually Tooth Treasures will not be needed before 5-6.

2012 Award
American Girl McKenna, 2012 Girl of the Year Doll & Book
(American Girl $105 Score:)

Dressed for gymnastics practice, 18-inch McKenna is determined to master the challenges of the balance beam and more. She arrives with her long caramel-colored hair is tied up for her active life style. In this Summer Olympic season, you can be sure, the young athletes, in London, will inspire girls all over the world, as they go through their routines. McKenna is not an Olympian; though one day she may be one! American Girl has created a whole line of accessories for McKenna. There is an accessory bag ($26) with mini water bottle, trail mix, school papers, exercise booklet and more. We love her team gear with jacket, trousers, medal, and slippers($28.)  There is also a beam and bar set ($85) for McKenna to practice on, two outfits in a practice wardrobe ($35) and just in case, a cast and crutches ($30) should she stumble when she does a daring double backflip!

Age: Early School Years, Later School Years. Award Year: 2012.

2011 Award
Corolle Classic Bebe Cheri
(Corolle $100 Score:)

The closest thing to a real baby, this is an armful of a doll that plays right into pretending. She's big enough to be able to wear real clothes designed for a 3-month-old infant. Baby Cheri is a totally lovable 20-inch doll with a soft body, sleeping eyes and comes dressed in a calico pink romper. She has a bald head and is hand washable. We think older doll lovers will enjoy this best, although it's marked 3 & up.

Age: Preschool, Early School Years. Award Year: 2011.

2011 Award
Blabla Mini Fluer, Mini Pierre, and Mini Balthazar
(Blabla kids $35 Score:)

New huggables from Blabla are more muted than the original dolls. Pierre is dressed in putty with an olive green bag and burnt orange scarf. Balthazar is wearing a cutaway and bow tie and has a mustachio. He seems to have an award on his lapel--perhaps for being such a dashing hare. Mini Fleur is done up in a mauve pink with some licks of lavender. We think these will appeal more to older collectors.

Age: Preschool, Early School Years. Award Year: 2011.

2014 Awards
Corolle Miss Corolle Classic 14" Coquette Dolls
(Corolle $74 Score:)

Scrumptous is the word that comes to mind when you see any one of the dolls in this multi-cultural collection that first won a Platinum Award in 2011.  Each 14" tall  with a full head of hair (there is a brunette, blond, red head and African American in the collection).  What we love about these dolls is that they look like girls and are dressed appropriately (but extremely fashionable as you would expect from a French dollmaker!).  Each doll sports an outfit you'll want! New for 2014, Mademoisell Corolle VAnilla Coco Doll (African-American in a pink and white dress), Mademoiselle Corolle Coquette Redhead Doll (red hair against a lovely school girl white collar, blue top and purple skirt), Mademomoiselle Corolle  Coquette Brunette Doll (comes in a very trendy faux-fur vest, grey sweater, pink shorts and grey tights). All would make very special birthday presents for the preschooler set.

In her pink slippers and green knee highs, Adelaene is ready to reel and celebrate the wearing of the green, no doubt. She has red yarn hair and a fussy dress with purple puffed sleeves that is otherwise all green. Like all Groovy Girls she has stitched features. 3 & up

2010 Award
Karito Kids Dolls Zoe
(Karito Kids $100 Score:)

This gorgeous 22" blonde doll from New York City is fashioned to look like an eleven year old girl and is dressed for sport in a pink shirt, red shrug sweater, jeans shorts and knee socks in tie up boots. Her story is about the excitement of living in a big city with its flea markets, shows, music, art museums and excitement. She is one of a collection of multicultural dolls that comes packaged with a book. This purchase is not about the book. You’ll find better books on our book list. This is all about the doll. Her body is soft, but her arms and legs, like her head, are hard vinyl and beautifully molded. This collection has a presence online, as well with games, extra outfits, and a charity that encourages kids to donate money to those more needy. These are definitely dolls for older girls who have a more worldly view and are open to learning about other countries and the dreams of girls from far away. Unlike old-fashioned foreign doll collections, these were designed to be played with…not just displayed. They were also designed to encourage girls to think beyond the confines of their home base. Also in the collection is Pita from Mexico, Ling from China, Lulu form Kenya, Piper from Australia. 8 & up.
