The best first baby dolls for toddlers are small and huggable—that’s why we love Calin Yang, by Corolle. Corolle’s Mon Premier line of dolls is specially designed for children aged 18 months and up.
Calin Yang is 12 inches tall, easy for a young child to hug and carry around. Her soft beanbag body can be posed just like a real baby! This pretty Asian baby doll has dark brown, almond-shaped eyes and black hair. She wears a two-piece pink and white outfit and a headband.
Why we love dolls: Doll play helps develop nurturing behaviors in girls and boys, as they imitate parents and caregivers. Dolls also enable children to act out real-life situations – they might become a sister, a parent or even a babysitter. As children grow and begin to develop friendships, they can treat a favorite doll as a best friend and learn social skills in the process.
Corolle began making dolls over 30 years ago in France, where the dolls are still designed. Each Corolle doll is designed with great care, because Corolle designers understand that a doll is more than a toy; it is a cherished part of a child’s growing up.
Corolle designs dolls that look and feel as real as possible, with soft, supple vinyl; natural-looking hair and up-to-date fashions. And because children develop a strong emotional bond with their dolls, Corolle dolls are durable to withstand all the loving and hugs their beauty and charm inspire. All of which helps to explain why, since its founding, Corolle has received global recognition for design and play excellence, winning scores of awards.
Corolle’s number one priority as a company is safety. Exacting tests and quality procedures ensure that Corolle products meet or exceed all mandatory and voluntary safety standards in Europe, the United States and Canada.
