2002 Award
Doodle
(Gund $28 Score:) Doodle looks like an old-fashioned honey-colored jointed bear, but his limbs simply swing. His coat is nubby but silky to the touch and his bottom and limbs have jus enough beans to make him a hefty 16 inch huggable. For a smaller armful, 10 inch Luv Me Bear($12) with curly honey coat, is also a winner.

2009 Awards
Les Cheries
(Corolle $45 Score:)

We loved these dolls when they first hit the market back in 2003. They received a Platinum Award and we are now giving them a Blue Chip Award for 2009. Chloe, Camille, Clare, Cecile and Cathy are a multicultural collection of 13" dolls and are marketed as "best friend" dolls and are purposefully not fashion dolls. Our favorites this year are Cecile, an African American girl, with jeans, a knit shrug and glorious hair or Chloe, a brunette ballerina in a gossamer tutu. They are meant to look like girls of today. There are new clothes almost every year--but this is a collection that should not be missed.

2004 Awards
Language Littles Dolls
(Language Littles $39.99 Score:) These 16 " soft rag dolls with yarn hair are pretty pricey, but huggable and have sound chips in their hands. Give one hand a squeeze and it says several phrases in two languages, squeeze the other hand and it counts in the Spanish, Italian, French or Chinese-depending on which doll you bring home. Will it make your child bi-lingual-not really, but it is a small nod in that direction and just might prompt further interest. Also available in child size dolls sans soundchips and only $50 for an oversized playmate that can wear you child's clothes and will say whatever she imagines it says ...in any language!

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2004.

2004 Award
Bitty Baby Double Stroller
(Pleasant Company $48 Score:) With so many real double stroller around, it seemed only right that there should be a version for dolls. Designed to go with the American Girl's Bitty Baby collection which offers a wide range of multi-ethnic dolls. There is also a twins collection (unfortunately only available in fair skin). The stroller does collapse for storage purposes.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2004.
