2014 Award
Barbie Career of the Year: Entrepreneur
(Mattel $12.99 Score:)

Dressed for success in her hot pink sheath and classic black pumps to go with her designer black handbag, Barbie is geared up with electronics and ready to answer any questions, no doubt. According to the stats on the back of the box, nearly 1-in-3 businesses in the United States are owned by women and by 2018 they say women will create over half the new small businesses in the US. So Barbie's message this year is work hard to succeed, dream, and make a difference. Available in various ethnicities and hair colors. We're giving you the link to Caucasian one...but there is a Latina, Asian, and African American.

2013 Award
Bunnies by the Bay Wobbly Carmel
(Bunnies By the Bay $22 Score:)

Wobbly is a light carmel-colored bear with long legs, long arms and slightly distressed plush. He's skinnier in person than his picture appears. Has a velvety feel and stitched features, but is only surface washable.

2013 Award
Mattel Barbie Fashion Vending Machine
(Mattel $23.99 Score:)

We are not huge Barbie furnishing fans, but this clever contraption could be fun for pretend play as well as a good storage device for all those little shoes, handbags, and necklaces Barbie dolls tend to generate. The working vending machine can hold all these items on the shelves that turn or put them on the right side, turn the crank and make the toys pop out.  Comes with some accessories with room for others. They say 3 & up. We say more like 5 & up.

2012 Award
Cinderella Swirling Lights
(Mattel $29.99 Score:)

Push the blue gem on Cinderella's necklace and her dress lights up as fairy dust sounds tinkle. In her blue ball gown Cinderella is ready to go to the ball and her glass slippers are ready for dancing! Marked for 3 and up, but we think it will be enjoyed more by slightly older girls.

2012 Award
Pony Flag Race Lottie
(Arklu $19.99 Score:)

One of an adorable collection of 7-inch dolls with removable clothing and moveable joints for poseable play. They have painted faces with big eyes and plenty of hair to arrange. These are not fashion dolls in the traditional sense, but girl dolls. Their clothes have a high-end look, though the girls are plastic and not overly pricey. Marked 3 & up although kids under 5-6 will seldom have the dexterity to dress them. Also see Snow Queen doll and Spring Celebration Ballet doll from the same line.

2012 Award
Blabla Coral Mermaid
(blabla kids $42 Score:)

Soft and huggable, Coral, an 18"long mermaid is created with cotton yarn. Her multicolored braids are as bright as the coral reef and her tail has scalloped embroidery. An unusual huggable, she has no nose, but they did not forget her bellybutton.   Like other dolls in the line it is also available in a 12-inch size.

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
Groovy Girls Chef Charlotte
(Manhattan Toy $20 Score:)

With rolling pin in hand and her jaunty chef hat and pink chef's coat, Chef Charlotte is ready to cook up some Groovy Doll fun. Like all the Groovy Girls her soft body is light, her features are stitched on, her clothes are removable, her yarn hair is slightly wild, and her cute fabric skirt and purple shoes have cupcakes on them. 3 & up.

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.

2013 Award
Corolle Miss Corolle Classic 14" Coquette Dolls
(Corolle $79.99 Score:)

Scrumptous is the word that comes to mind when you see any one of the dolls in the collection that first won a Platinum Award in 2011.  Each 14" tall  with a full head of hair (there is a brunette, blond and red head 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!
