I have to say I’m loving Maxine over at My Doll Best Friend right now, because she’s announced yet another doll range for us all to enjoy, following on from the Schildkrot, Via-E and Maru & Friends ranges showcased recently. The sweet little faces above belong to dolls from the Soy Tu range by Spanish doll manufacturor Paola Reina. Unusually these days, the dolls and component parts are all sourced within Europe and the dolls are made in the Alicante region. Each doll has jointed limbs, sleep eyes and a light vanilla scent.
The dolls are 16″ tall, slightly smaller than the Kidz n Cats and Gotz ranges, but can share some clothes. The actual Soy Tu outfits have been designed by the well-known Ruth Treffeisen and I have to say they are gorgeous, and very stylish designs. The company has designed the range of Soy Tu dolls (it means “I am you” in Spanish) to reflect ethnic variety, hence the very different faces shown above.
The dolls are currently in stock at My Doll Best Friend and there’s a blog post with more detailed information and many more pictures and close-ups to give you a better idea of how they look. Maxine will be offering clothes to fit the Soy Tu dolls also.
With Christmas coming up I reckon these would be the ideal choice for a younger doll-lover, though I might well be tempted by the redhead myself, I’m a pushover when it comes to dolls with freckles!
