Tidings of Comfort & Joy - Ashton-Drake Holiday 2021

Little Skipper baby dollEach year, when summer rolls around, I’m reminded of when my daughter was little and I’d take her to the beach. It was so adorable, the little prints she left behind in the sand as she toddled along beside me. And then she’d stop. Out on the water a boat would be sailing by and oh the look of delight and awe on her face as she watched! I couldn’t help but wonder what she was thinking and if, somehow, she knew she too had just set sail—on her own life’s journey.

That’s what Ashton-Drake is all about—capturing the beauty of little ones as they begin their voyage through life. And the collection presented here is the perfect example. Fan favorites plus new dolls like Little Skipper (pictured) ready for nautical napping in his little sailboat PJs, Milo and a leopard pal (click here) eager to start their summer safari, and Arianna with her new puppy (click here), beautifully depict some of life’s earliest memorable moments.

And as you cruise through our catalog, also be sure to keep your eye out for segments I call “Meet the Crew.” In them, I highlight a boatload of cuties and how they make Ashton-Drake the flagship of the doll industry. So take a moment to relax, soak up some sun, and browse the dolls collectors have cherished for over 35 years. You’re sure to find babies to sail their way into your heart and the hearts of everyone you love!


Bon Voyage!
