Our 2010 Collection

This year we are returning to make the very popular small size wooden bodied dolls. Rose is 10.5" and Arthur is 11". We are offering them with some lovely accessories.

We are also introducing two new Little Friends, Ivy and Jasmin who are available in two editions each. The little friends are all bisque 7" articulated dolls with wood ball joints, hand painted eyes and mohair wigs, this year they also have a lovely new little red car!

We hope very much that you enjoy our collection for 2010.
