. Hand-made in Peru by local artisans, using 100% Peruvian cotton, these dolls are designed for the modern parent looking for an alternative to mass produced dolls, and for those in the market for designer baby gifts
New York (PRWEB) July 01, 2014
Estella, the leader in boutique baby clothing and baby gifts, is excited to announce the launch of its unique collection of hand-knit dolls for children and collectors. These toys for girls and boys are bursting with character. Unlike the stereotypical Mattel or superhero doll, these dolls have super powers and celebrate various traits that are not usually celebrated, but that kids everywhere can identify with.
Trixie is a feisty trailblazer with confidence to spare. The modern day superhero, she is the star of every event and she knows it. Trixie wears a mask to add a touch of mystique to her image and is so confident that she wears a bold pink bow to accentuate her asymmetric ears. She wears uneven socks because she likes it this way and doesn’t care what others say.
Flash bears a lightning bolt on his chest and wears a cape because he loves speed. Blessed with quick feet and a zest for life, this superhero is still recovering from a small speeding accident and wears an eye patch on the advice of doctors. But neither his injury nor the pleading of his loved ones can slow him down. Whatever he may lack in vision, he makes up in spirit. Flash loves adventure and seeks out any opportunity to zip around and play the hero that he is.
Kat loves sports and is ready for any game, the rougher the better. Destined for stardom, this athletic girl (she hates the word “tomboy”) is a talented super athlete and tends to disappoint the boys when she beats them at their games. Kat loves using her super-strength and does not apologize for wanting to win. She proudly wears her thick black glasses, tube socks, and her favorite purple number 22 jersey. Kat’s got game and is always ready to play.
Seymour isn’t the strongest superhero on the block, but that doesn’t stop him from trying to save the day. What he lacks in supernatural abilities, he makes up for in spunk. Though accident-prone, Seymour is always happy and brave. A born superhero, Seymour is dressed in black with a contrasting red mask, cape and star on his chest with a big “S” in the middle. Always ready to help others out, this selfless superhero loves adventure and dares to go where no one else will go.
Red’s sweet, defenseless appearance is deceptive. A modern-day Little Red Riding Hood, she is super strong, street smart, and in control. Her love of adventure is second to none and she adores wandering through dark forests and unknown places. Red will gladly deliver goodies to Granny, but won’t fall for anyone’s tricks. Steer clear, Mr. Fox.
Designed by Jean Polsky, a New York City mother of three and co-founder and Creative Head Estella, the leader in designer baby clothes, Estella’s Super Hero dolls are a modern take on an age-old story. “The inspiration behind these dolls is the concept of being comfortable in your own skin, expressing yourself, and loving what makes you different. These dolls don’t fit the mold for ‘perfection’ but have so much spirit, confidence, and joy that they are loveable superstars,” says Ms. Polsky. Hand-made in Peru by local artisans, using 100% Peruvian cotton, these dolls are designed for the modern parent looking for an alternative to mass produced dolls, and for those in the market for designer baby gifts.
Now available for wholesale and retail at Estella and soon at Barney’s New York. These hand knit dolls are an addition to Estella’s popular collection of baby rattles that are currently retailed at Uncommongoods.com, Barney’s online shop, several of its retail stores and at select baby boutiques.
Founded in 2002, Estella is recognized as an innovator in the children’s clothing market. Along with manufacturing baby toys, nursery décor and accessories, Estella retails, through its online baby boutique, a well curated selection of designer baby and toddler clothing from boutique brands like Aden and Anais, Winter Water Factory, Nununu, Bobo Choses, Imps and Elfs, Jellycat, areaware and more. Estella has been featured on the Today Show, CNN.com, Martha Stewart, Fox News, Vogue, Elle, The New York Times and much more.
