Recently, a little birdie told me that the folks at HABA are bringing coveted Götz dolls to the US market. Yes, there are tons and tons of dolls out there, but these German dolls are truly special. Works of art, even. They're sure to become that one super-special doll that your little one will choose as their constant companion.
You see, not only are they incredibly detailed from head to toe, they have a couple of features that make them stand out in the doll world. First, they're machine washable. (Hallelujah!) This is awesome since toys obviously get dirty as they're being loved. To wash these dolls, simply put them into a standard pillow case and wash them in cold water on delicate. (This does not apply to the standing dolls because of their size. They can be spot cleaned, though!) Then all you need to do is lay your doll tummy down to dry. Pretty cool, right?
The other thing that makes Götz dolls so fantastic is their hair. I don't know about you, but when I was little, I found my dolls' hair to be quite frustrating. It would tangle and kink, and one time I even accidentally burned it because I tried to curl it. (Oops!) This resulted in a smelly, sticky mess, as well as a nasty burn on my hand. The folks at Götz know that little children like to play with and style their dolls' hair. So they have come up with a special type of hair that can be washed, brushed, curled and even blow-dried! The styling possibilities are endless. You can check out some of the achievable Götz hairstyles on HABA's YouTube page!
It's no wonder that Götz dolls have won many of the most prestigious U.S. toy awards; including the Oppenheim Platinum Award, Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products and a NAPPA Honors award.
Our Review of Götz Dolls from HABA :
Our new pal arrived quickly and was very well-packaged in an attractive box. When the kids saw her, something funny happened....Sophie immediately said that Julia was Xander's dollie, and he readily agreed. So the doll I had intended to give my daughter now belongs to my son. No worries here, though. I know that ultimately, they will both enjoy her immensely.
Julia is breathtaking in every respect, but I just have to point out the attention to detail in her outfit. Götz dolls are dressed in very realistic clothing with button holes, embroidery, and pockets that are fully functional. They're not simply sewn on like many other doll outfits you'll find. This adds to the authenticity of the product, and can also help little ones' fine motor skills!
