Adorable Doll Find at Toy Fair – My Friend Huggles
Posted on March 4, 2013 by Maria Bailey

“As promised, I’m covering a few of my favorite finds from Toy Fair, where I noticed a “back to basics” theme at a few of the booths. The My Friend Huggles collection fits this theme, letting children “learn values through play”. Developed with the mission of instilling children with character values like fairness, gratefulness, honesty and kindness, these dolls are high-quality, life-size, and positively impact the morale and well-being of children.”
