Paola Reina has become one of our reliable staple brands that delivers bright and beautiful dolly dolls at great prices year on year. We now buy five ranges from Paola Reina, increasing our range again this year, with the addition of the Blandita dolls, which means 'soft body'.  Our collections include Las Blanditas, Las Amigas, Soy Tu, Las Reinas and Santoro Gorjuss. Don't be put off by the Spanish names they translate very literally and give a real indication of what you're buying.

For example Las Amigas means friends, and if you look at the wide range of dolls in this collection you can see that it's the best description for the group. There are so many to choose from how could they not be called friends? Classmates, school friends, fellow gymnasts etc At 32cm and starting from £24.99 you can buy a few for the price of a Gotz dolls, so friends they are!

Paola Reina Las Amigas Dolls

Here are the friends for 2017 - incidentally all the Las Amigas dolls are all in stock!

Paola Reina Soy Tu Dolls

Soy Tu is the range of Paola Reina dolls that is 42cm tall and is given the name that translates to 'I am you', for these are the dolls made in your likeness. Many doll brands look to the American Girl doll brand and take something from it, whilst keeping their own authenticity and one of the common themes between doll brands is that they like to offer a brand that has hair, eye and skin colour like most of us, hence I am you.  Whilst there could be a wider range, there's an offering of a doll like each of us in this collection.

Here are the Paola Reina Soy Tu 2017 dolls, as seen at the toy fair:

Paola Reina Las Reinas Dolls

The Paola Reina Las Reinas dolls are the Queens. A their name suggests, they are the the mightiest in size of the dolls at 60cm. There's also something a little bit regal about the doll sculpts, the way they hold their head and the expression in their wrists and fingers. Take a look:

Santoro Gorjuss Dolls by Paola Reina

Santoro Gorjuss dolls by Paola Reina were new in 2016 and are a firm favourite for their cuteness and allegiance to the Santoro Gorjuss brand. Nothing has been compromised in their creation, even the feet turn inwards just like the original drawings on the stationery when we fell in love with Ladybird, Ruby, Little Violet, Toadstools, The White Rabbit and the The Pretend Friend. These 32cm vinyl dolls have rooted black hair and are lightly scented, which everyone seems to love! In 2017 we have two more dolls and two outfits. On Top of the World and Bluebird's Proposal are the new dolls and the clothing comprises a bathing outfit and a bedtime outfit. These girls now have all they need for play!

Here's our Santoro Gorjuss doll photos from the Paola Reina booth at the Nuremberg Toy Fair:
