Finouche Hannah & Noemie
Paola Reina is a brand that supplies some of our most popular doll ranges: Las Amigas, Gorjuss by Santoro, Soy Tu, Las Reinas, Los Pikolines and now, “Los Paolitos”. What we love about Fidel from Los Paolitos is his cute face. Fidel is a boy doll who has warmed our hearts with his sweet lopsided smile.
Is he mischievous, naughty, cheeky, a prankster or simply shy and pure?
His smile’s very clever because he can be just like any little boy with all of these characteristic expressions on his face. This is great in play where children want their little buddy to take on many roles as they express emotions and play out the story in their imagination.
Certainly the adaptability of his face to any kind of imaginative play is what appeals the most to us about this little boy doll.
We first saw the Llorens dolls at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in early 2017 and we were bowled over by the beautiful faces and graceful poses of the 42cm articulated dolls. New to the market in 2017, only the prototypes were available to see at the show. The prototypes were magnificent and we placed our order without a moment’s hesitation. It took a while for Llorens to oversee the first production but excitingly this week we received our first delivery!
Angelina and Sophie are absolutely gorgeous. Take a look at this film we’ve put together for you to get acquainted with their precious looks:
Baby Stand Up!
There are baby dolls that lie, sit, cry, say “mama, papa! but this is the first baby doll that looks like a real bald baby that has just found her feet and is about to discover the world. We find her incredibly funny!
Olivia Stand Up! is a 30cm tall vinyl baby doll that is made like our regular child dolls from Vestida de Azul, firm enough to stand up, wear shoes and join in with the big children – the kind of big that pre-schoolers are to a baby!
A number of us remember our first child walking whilst barely having any hair and it’s a hilarious sight! Now Olivia is just like that little 10 month old baby that looks impossible on two feet!
