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!

2010 Award
Karito Kids Dolls Zoe
(Karito Kids $100 Score:)

This gorgeous 22" blonde doll from New York City is fashioned to look like an eleven year old girl and is dressed for sport in a pink shirt, red shrug sweater, jeans shorts and knee socks in tie up boots. Her story is about the excitement of living in a big city with its flea markets, shows, music, art museums and excitement. She is one of a collection of multicultural dolls that comes packaged with a book. This purchase is not about the book. You’ll find better books on our book list. This is all about the doll. Her body is soft, but her arms and legs, like her head, are hard vinyl and beautifully molded. This collection has a presence online, as well with games, extra outfits, and a charity that encourages kids to donate money to those more needy. These are definitely dolls for older girls who have a more worldly view and are open to learning about other countries and the dreams of girls from far away. Unlike old-fashioned foreign doll collections, these were designed to be played with…not just displayed. They were also designed to encourage girls to think beyond the confines of their home base. Also in the collection is Pita from Mexico, Ling from China, Lulu form Kenya, Piper from Australia. 8 & up.

2010 Award
Ugly Dolls 2010
(Ugly Dolls $20 Score:)

It will be hard to choose just one of the terrific new Ugly Dolls this season. Consider, Ninja Batty Shogu, a black fleece fellow with big blue eyes, red nose and three yellow teeth. Or consider Wippy, a pink rabbit-like creature with tall ears and grey eyes and two yellow teeth. There is also coral colored Mynus who has a singular bump on her head and a goofy smile. Her tag says she's the one you should turn to when you are in trouble. Also, a good choice, Pointy Max, a green fellow with a very pointy head and one all-seeing eye smack dab in the middle of his face. Oh, there are others, such as Pink Flatwoodsey with a tall pointy head and Ket a bluish looking dog-like doll and MIJ who seems to be asking a question and Picksey who claims to be able to inhabit several spaces at the same time. Honestly, you'll have to make up your own mind. Dolls in series often run out of steam, but this year's Ugly Dolls are really even better than in the past. All ages. If you buy them online you will have to search out the one you love best.
