    It won’t be long now before we receive the new Sylvia Natterer dolls from Petitcollin.

  • Introducing Bonnie & Pearl Dolls

    Petalina’s first order from Bonnie & Pearl has just arrived.

    I first discovered Paola Reina dolls a few years ago when a customer suggested that they would fit into the Bambolina range.
