There are so many new and updated dolls on the market every year, it can be difficult to know which your little one will love the most.

My favourite doll of all-time was my red-headed My Child ‘Alice. I still have her, safe in the attic in a bin bag; it’s the one toy I’ve always hoped will make a come back. There is some good news though, the Cabbage Patch Dolls have made a return, and my little girl is definitely going to be getting one of those for Christmas.
