Looks like they are going to start importing these dolls into Australia, to compete with Barbie and Bratz.

I wonder if it will cause the competition to rethink? Probably not I suppose wishful thinking LOL

They remind me of Matilda dolls. Anyone else remember them? Yep, those ones. The ones that weren't an overwhelming marketing success either  laugh.gif

I had a Matilda doll, and I loved her! she had her own lacy handbag to live in.. it was kind of a drawstring bag... and she slept in there.

i think its fantastic! what a revolution, creating a child doll for a child. cant believe there hasnt been more of it. and speaking of dolls withthe scary looking eyes, what about the lalaloopsie dolls? dd has a couple of the mini ones, i think they're mostly harmless, but their button eyes freak me out a little...will have to google matilda doll to see what i missed under my rock...

They're quite nice.  

I've always liked the Kelly dolls, like these and these.  We have a beautiful picnic set with three friends (one a boy!) that I bought about 5 years ago, not sure if it's stll available.  

I guess people don't want to spend with Mattel, but if more people bought along those lines, that would send a message to the big companies about what people like to see available.

I like them.
It's great they have children's bodies.

My three girl are neither Barbie or bratz fans so I am not sure they would like these anymore but I like the idea of them.

A nice alternative.

what a cute doll! found a link for anyone who also hasnt seen one:

http://littlepeople.net.au/australian-girl-matilda-toy.html (sorry, seems to be a bad link but if you type matilda doll in the search thing at the top you can still see it.)

expensive though. maybe that's why not so popular? were they always so expensive?
i dont know, call me frugal but i think a doll in the $20-$50 range is generous enough for a little girl who will love it to er.. death.

I quite like them. My 2yr old isn't into dolls yet(I'm hoping one day!!) but I wouldn't mind buying the Lottie dolls for her, much better than Bratz that's for sure!

Fingers crossed they come to australia soon, importing from uk is always too expensive

She's too much of a child.

I remember playing with Barbies to act out my grown up fantasies through them. They would get married, have jobs. They weren't children. I was a child. What's fun about pretending to be a child when you already are one?

What propaganda said.

I don't foresee them stealing Barbie's crown.

They probably will not steal Barbie's crown but I thinks its good to have a choice - I used to play with Sindy Dolls - not sure what happened to them!

I don't really understand what the big deal is, there has always been 'child' dolls

and of course Kelly/Shelly (depending on where you get them) as a PP posted.  I don't see the big difference, except the 3 i've posted belong under the 'barbie' brand
