Corolle is located in the Loire Valley, the storybook region of France that is famous for its scenic beauty and magnificent chateaux.
The Corolle design team aims to create dolls that look and feel as real as possible with faces that are often inspired by real children. This team selects children's photos from which are going to be realized sculptures. From these sculptures will be realized the moulds which will be of use as base to the manufacturing of dolls.
Corolle dolls have been carefully designed to match a child’s age, size and stage of development.
One of the most important criteria for selecting a Corolle doll is weight: The doll’s weight should be in proportion to a child’s weight so that it is easy to carry.
Size is also an important consideration when choosing a doll: we recommend a doll that can be cradled easily in the crook of your child’s arm. As the child cradles the doll, the length of the doll’s body (neck to toes) should be no longer than the length of your child’s arm measured from elbow to finger tips.
Another feature that is integral to a child’s enjoyment is the doll’s level of sophistication: more sophisticated clothes and hairstyles are best for children over five while more simple hairstyles and clothes are more suitable for children five and under.
