And check out our list of favourite Best Friend Dolls below!


agirlforalltimeA Girl for all time – Matilda

A bit more traditional but we think should be challenging the run-of-the-mill Barbies and Bratz dolls, it is aimed at slightly older girls and comes from a new UK based toy company.

Matilda is themed from the Tudor times and comes complete with a full set of clothing and period accessories. Matilda is 16 inches high and absolutely fantastically crafted to look porcelain but is high quality viunyl and made to last, hair that’ll stand plenty of brushing and articulated limbs for loads of role play.

Her Tudor dress, fur lined sleeves, pearl trimmed headdress gives her the perfect look of a royal beau.

She comes with a keepsake book for girls to plan the perfect Tudor sleepover – a really great way to bring history to life and assist in learning too.

Price: £89.99
