Take your pick of these 12 charming Cabbage Patch dolls. This newly reintroduced line includes both boys and girls, fair and dark haired, in many skin tones and cute easy on and off clothes.

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.

(Kuleana Productions $19.99 Score:) This is an adorable fabric doll with a hula skirt and Lei, yarn hair and stitched features...and oh, yes, discreetly painted toe nails,too.

2007 Award
Bebe Do Graceful
(Corolle $49.99 Score:) A very sweet 14" baby doll that is just right for pretend play. Our testers love this collection of dolls that feel so soft and smell like vanilla. The head and limbs are vinyl with a soft fabric body that is extremely huggable. Comes with a bunny and bottle. We'd recommend pairing this doll with a stroller or the Play Nursery from Corolle.

Poupette
(Corolle $39 Score:) This collection of six multicultural dolls is right on target for threes and fours. Each has a reversible dress with Velcro fasteners. These would have been Platinum winners, but they're marked 18 mos. & up, and the small hair accessories make them more appropriate for 3 & up. Also new, tubbable bath dolls; select either Les Bébés Bains ($40 each ) (Caucasian or Asian version available) or long-haired 14" La Poupee Bain ($65 each ). 3 & up. Still top rated, Les Minis Calins Blue Chip ($16 & up ), sweet 8" soft-bodied dolls which also come in Asian and African American versions.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: .

Love Me Chou Chou
(Zapf Creation $49.99 Score:) Love Me Chou Chou score 3 (Zapf Creation $49.99) Love Me Chou Chou babbles, cries, says mama, and moves her feet, but she was disappointing to our testers who thought she was "too heavy... she had a seam on her head—looked like she had brain surgery... and you had to put a pacifier in to make her stop crying." We still highly recommend this company’s multi-ethnic and silent Baby Cakes Birthday line. Each 19" doll comes with eyes that open and close and are dressed in a beautiful knitted seater and cap. A scrumptious armful. Also pleasing, My First Baby Annabell ($19.99), a sweet and very affordable 14" bald baby doll in a terry cloth romper.
