It’s another day of #doll news! This time from #Gotz Puppenmanufaktur who launch their 2016 doll and accessories collection officially at the Nuremberg Toy Fair 27th Jan- 1st Feb. However, in a break from tradition (and because of photo leaks!) they’re authorising us to show you the dolls, using the high resolution promotional photos here on the blog, in advance of the Toy Fair.
Here are the new Gotz dolls!!!!
|HAPPY KIDZ CLARA 1666037|
Happy Kidz Clara has red hair and blue eyes! (This has been confirmed).
|HAPPY KIDZ EMILY 1666034|
Happy Kidz Emily has blonde hair and brown eyes.
|HAPPY KIDZ MARIE 1666036|
Happy Kidz Marie has blonde hair and blue eyes.
|HAPPY KIDZ CHARLOTTE 1666235|
Charlotte has brown hair and brown eyes. She has the face mould sculpted by Sissel Skille that was available for the previous Happy Kidz dolls (a long story..and another blog post). Ordinarily this face mould was used on the Hannah body – so no elbow and knee joints. Looking at the photo, this Happy Kidz doll might have the Hannah body.
|HANNAH HAPPY BIRTHDAY 1659078|
Hannah Happy Birthday has brown hair and brown eyes.
|HANNAH AND HER DOG 1659079|
Hannah and Her Dog has red hair and brown eyes.

|PRECIOUS DAY JESSICA 1690391|

|PRECIOUS DAY ELISABETH 1690389|
Precious Day Elisabeth has brown hair and brown eyes.
When I met with Anke in Nuremberg last year I passed on all your comments (and my own thoughts as an adult play doll enthusiast) that we’d like more new hair/eye/face mould combinations, please!!! This 2016 is Gotz’s interpretation of that – and Anke made snap decisions at the fair – she said bring back a Sissel Skille? And, a redhead Happy Kidz ?(Originally she thought maybe as a Classic Kidz – but that range has reduced, so I see that the redhead has become Happy Kidz Clara). I find it fascinating how quickly leaders make decisions that they stick to.
What do you think of the 2016 new Gotz dolls?
Looking forward to hearing your positive comments, and views as to what you’d like to see in the future – that I may share on my next trip in 2 weeks time!
Expect these dolls to become available at My Doll Best Friend from March. Happy Kidz and Hannah doll prices will be c£79.99 and Precious Day will be c£59.99
