Whooohooo! 8 DOTY'S...Walking On Sunshine!

It's been an amazing and fun time here at the Doll & Teddy Bear show in Orlando, Florida. We debuted all of our new collections of dolly's, met with some of our wonderful retailer's, conversed and twittered with our fantastic collector's and the icing on the cake...the cherry on top that makes all of the hard work to get to this point even more special...we were awarded 8 DOTY (Doll of the Year) Industry Choice Awards at the IDEX Debut of Dolls Ceremony last night!  WOW! We were "walking on sunshine" here in sunny Florida for sure!  So here's a share of the winning beauties that took home one of these
And a shout out to the artists that we work with to make our dolly's make you "wanna play dolls"!  THANKS to Doll Reader Magazine and our fellow doll maker peers for recognizing our beautiful dolly's!

Congratulations to the staff of Charisma, Marie and all the great doll artists on their DOTY Awards!

John and I wish we could have been there with you at IDEX. Too bad there isn't a show here in Washington! :-)

Way to go! We look forward to getting these dolls in at CYB soon!

Best wishes,
Karen & John
