Have you heard? Four of our collectible dolls were Doll Magazine’s Industry’s Choice winners at the 2017 Dolls Awards of Excellence, and now they’re up for the Public’s Choice Award. Here’s a closer look at our lovely nominees:

In the Collectible Baby Doll category:

Ava was designed by Master Doll Artist Linda Murray. Crafted out of our TrueTouch™ Silicone, Ava’s pudgy arms and legs are so soft and realistic, you can’t help but pick her up for a snuggle. She’s hand-painted, with hand-rooted hair, sweet blue eyes and kissable lips. She’s even weighted to feel like a real baby girl in your arms.

Perfect in Pink Annika
Master Doll Artist Marissa May designed Perfect in Pink Annika, and she is absolutely adorable. Annika is one of our So Truly Real® collectible dolls, brought to life in our exclusive RealTouch® vinyl. With her tiny button nose and lightly clenched hands, Annika has just the sweetest glow about her.

Mirella, Grand-Jeweled Gypsy Bride
Mirella is a dark-haired, stunning porcelain doll designed by Master Doll Artist Cindy McClure. This beautiful gypsy bride wears a sensational wedding gown featuring a lace appliquéd bodice generously adorned with pearlescent beads, shimmering sequins and genuine Swarovski® crystals.

Titania Queen of Fairies
Inspired by William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” Titania is as dazzling as a fairy queen should be. Designed by Master Doll Artist Sandra Bilotto, Titania’s sparkling accents perfectly capture the magic of moonlight. She is beautifully dressed in a hand-tailored satin gown featuring a glittering taffeta overskirt gathered up by pink satin roses.
