Oh Dolly!

Posted by

Dolly Pockets from NA Bear are a wonderful combination of dolls and puppets.  The fairytale classics with pockets of fun have removable mini-puppets.  These dolls encourage reading and imaginative play.  Collect them all:  The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Goldilocks & the 3 Bears, Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Clara, Alice in Wonderland and Nursery Verse.  Winner of Oppenheim Toy Portfolio and FamilyFun T.O.Y. Award.

NA Bear was founded 30 years ago by a mother looking for a classic teddy bear for her son but wanted one with the nostalgic charm of an antique toy and a contemporary sense of whimsy.  Not able to find what she wanted - she started her own company.  Today, her company designs and manufactures quality soft toys for babies and young children.

Another fabulous line from Jellycat - new in 2015.  The Squiggles - Bunny, Puppy and Kitty - like to dance and probably would sing if they could.  They may only stand 9" tall, but they are adorable.  I love the "just got out of bed" look with their wild fur.  It is still very soft [...]
